Does Heaven know you're miserable now?

It’s 1987. Sam Henry Hay, a 17-year-old exchange student from Sheffield, hops into Texas, USA, with one burning ambition: Manipulate his gullible host parents into funding his university, and leave his dead-end life in Yorkshire behind.

But is Sam manipulating America or America manipulating Sam? The clever lad schmoozes his way into many a bed and purse, yet can’t get rid of anyone. He executes careful plans, only to watch them disastrously fall apart. Worst of all, this once proud nihilist watches in horror as he reveals a conscience, in a world growing ever darker around him. 

Days of Throbbing Gristle is not your typical teenage tale. It’s a razor-slashing journey through a time and place that really was as bad as you’ve heard. For some, high school is the best time in their lives. For others, it’s a miracle they make it to the other side.

Top 10 Worlds I'd Like to See in Kingdom Hearts III

I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan, I'm the kind of person who gets all emotional when listening to the soundtrack (and I bet there are a lot of us out there!) - love ya, Utada! So, like any other Kingdom Hearts fan, I've been waiting FOR YEARS for the third game to come out. There have been many side-stories, mostly for handhelds, but it's just not the same.
