Kevin Parker seems surprisingly composed for someone under enormous pressure. Growing up in Perth, Western Australia, Kevin would tinker with music in his bedroom as a way to keep his head together. The emotional fallout from that helped shape Tame Impala: a one-man studio band whose introspective anthems now warrant stadium tours and collaborations with the likes of Lady Gaga and Kanye West.

A few hours later he woke up, dazed, hearing voices from walkie-talkies. Outside, he saw clouds of smoke and flames on surrounding hillsides.

Your crush will watch you closely to see how you interact with these little ones. Even though it sounds like she is very Mormon, I feel that this will help her.
