    Remix: Cotisuelto

    Cotisuelto: a Spanish Caribbean word :one who wears the shirt tail outside their trousers. It describes a certain fashion among young men these days.

    Radio thoughts

    by

    Listening to Sweet and Sour, I heard an interesting story well made with voice changer and sound effects. It also had a separate event concerning a hero overcoming a task which was also well done. If it had a weak point its that the dialogue felt a little emotionless at …
