Quarantine Interview, Part 1: The Venus Fly Trap

I don’t suppose anyone else has ever taken a musical journey, whether it’s streaming music or listening to the radio. Then while on this journey, you come across a band or artist that lures you in with their beauty, edginess or sleekness. Before you know it, there is no turning back and now you are a fan.

The Venus Fly Trap of the United Kingdom may lure you in like a Venus flytrap but you should be fine. You could probably ask to take a selfie with them. They are not an actual Venus flytrap. If you see a Venus flytrap plant in the wild, it’s best to just take a quick picture and walk away. FYI: The plant could be on the endangered species list soon.

In fact, The Venus Fly Trap – the band, not the plant- are here on the blog today. Please welcome The Venus Fly Trap to the blog.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
