PLEASE REBLOG THIS LIKE YOUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT. We need all the help we can get getting the word out. The Australian television industry is so small, it’s very hard for young filmmakers to break through, so the more you share these episodes, the more you tell your friends about the show, the more chance we have for people to stand up and take notice. Thank you for all your support we here at #theburbs are very very excited and proud of our work.

The Burb (Austin & Robbie) (at The Burb - Pinellas County Practice Space)

For more than a week, we have watched and read with astonishment the stunning ineptitude of Ferguson, Mo., Police Chief Thomas Jackson. “We couldn’t care less” appears to be his and his department’s motto. Not about the residents of that tense…
