Country Music Reincarnated

22 Apr

I just found an interesting article on slate.com. They have created a Reincarnation Machine to determine who you were in past lives. All you have to do is type in your birthdate. However, it is not a new idea because I thought of it a long time ago. Instead of letting them have all of the glory, I have reblogged the post where this idea originated.

The Highwaymen came up on my iPod. That was an 80s country super group consisting of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. In the 80s, each of them were legends.

        Me neither. A lot of the problem ARE the ranters.
