A final performance, product, or accomplishment before someone or some-thing stops creating work or products, as due to death, retirement, closure

From 2014 to 2018, I published five issues of Bands I Useta Like magazine, arguably my most popular venture to date. By which I mean, I print up copies and they sell. In case you’re one of the over 6 billion people who never got your hands on a copy, you’re in luck!Continue reading
