If you haven't been keeping up with them, LIL currently have a new blog series thingy, titled "Little2Life".
ucio draws and writes, and tsuge keeps a vblog chronicling his visit to New York City where he is currently.
yesterday a new video was posted, and at the end, a previously unheard song plays.
