40 seems to be one of those numbers. It’s mentioned in religion - a period of fasting, waiting, testing.

Not bro, not high school girl, not rich banker, not any of the Jeffrey Epstein group or anyone looking for trash and punk in the … Continue reading The Review I Never Thought I’d Write – The Strokes – The New Abnormal
