What a strange person to look up to.
There you have it, Shacknews, your Evening Reading for tonight. Please consider subscribing to Shacknews Mercury to support our site for as little as $1/month.
Here is one of my absolute favorite photos of Rad. He was but a teeny, tiny little kitten here. So adorable. I love him so much.
What are you up to tonight? Let us know in the Shacknews Chatty comment thread below.
Sam Chandler posted a new article, Evening Reading - July 12, 2021
Sam I don't hear hella much any more but I think it is because it started to be used in advertising
Right on. I heard about it from an American friend on Xbox Live back in 2005. Before then it hadn't made it's way to Australia. Since then, I continue to not hear it.
It used to be only Sacramento and East Bay (maybe SF too?) in California, never heard it until I moved there for college. Now, I buy vegetarian pork rinds from Oregon called 'Hella Hot' and characters say it in Life is Strange 1, so I will go back to saying 'Rad', 'woof', and '23 skiddoo'
