kusFree MP3 Download, Podcast, Pop, Video, Vocal

Mary Cigarettes is a pop child. He’s been making records for decades now, although he won’t bore you with the mind numbing details of that. Maybe best letting the music speak for itself, if you like what you hear, you can download any of his songs. He is also available for full on, hard-core sex, but that shall cost you fifty thousand pounds, for what he promises would be the fuck of the century, compressed into one heavenly evening. Donate now.

All my life I tried to be a really nice guy, but it’s killing me.
