Doce me pro gratia

Salve Amici! Discipulus linguae latinae sum, et bene illam linguam discere volo. Sed, non scio optimum modum discentis.

I am worried for you people!

Benissimus, God blesses ;) him, lives in California and has not heard of "Nuthin' But a G Thang" by Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. Others have also questioned the existence of this classic track. <br />I could not believe this! <br />Personally I really be digging neither D.R.E nor Snoop D-O-double-gizzle; however this song from seemingly ages ago captures an era ubi I n'was que six ...
