After some deliberation and many false starts I’ve decided it’s time to officially announce that Half Machine Lip Moves is going on a hiatus. We will be back. I don’t want to make any promises, because its return depends on circumstances outside of my control, but we’re looking at returning on July 12. Till then wash your hands take care of each other, and if you have the means we encourage you to donate to worthy causes such as Black Lives Matter, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the ACLU, local bail funds, funds for helping displaced/unemployed service sector workers, etc.
