About us

Chris (@thaAbstrakt).

Graduate of Oklahoma State University with a love for music. Good music and books. Yep, books with actual words…and a few of them don’t have any pictures. Chris is very opinionated when it comes to just about everything, but he enjoys hearing the other side of the argument. Also, don’t let the picture fool you, he’s not very good at the guitar…he’s great. Read his thoughts. Debate with him. Introduce him to your attractive sisters, daughters, or that “weird” girl cousin you have that don’t watch Basketball Wives. Lets Go! ...

Erik (@WalkSays).

2006 graduate of Oklahoma State University.  He loves learning, except when it involves a classroom… or effort. Born and raised in OKC, moved to Kansas City for work in 2006 and to Atlanta in 2015. He’s never broken up a marriage; however, if ever he were to ever meet Tamia, you may or may not find him trying really hard to do just that (Grant Hill won life… Jerk). So if you happen to know her, let her know he’s available. ...

Ronnie Coleman by New Year’s… Not witty enough to think of anything else right now. ...
