Rag’N’Bone Man does it again: Hard Came The Rain

Mar 17, 2015

I did a double-take passing by the cemetery upon seeing what appeared to be glow sticks. Turns out, they were tasteful and pleasing plastic floral/butterfly/dragonfly gravesite decorations with colored LEDs that pass through an array of colors, like ni...
