punk's not dead

I had a dream when I was high school that I attended the punk rock academy and no one made fun of me.

I now have a DVD player that plays mp3s. I threw in an unlabeled disc and was greeted by my punk rock collection.

I'm still having a hard time with my kids being fans of AFI. I don't mind sharing my other cds with them - we can rock out to The Ataris or Bad Religion together and it's all cool. But something about the Ataris going mainstream me cry.

I don't begrudge them their fame, their fortune, their masses of sweaty teenage girls and boys rushing the stage to touch them. I just wanted to keep them to myself, I guess. Selfish me. I get very attached to my favorite bands. Not in a groupie sort of way. Never been a groupie. Not unless you count Leif Garret and I don't.

Anyhow, I'm enjoying this cd to the extent that the neighbors can probably hear it.

Hey, this isn't a whole punk cd! My long lost version of Bloodhound Gang doing Weezer's Undone is on here! It's more like an Undone/Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothin' to Fuck With remix. I need to get this back on my computer. You have to hear it.

I wonder how the neighbors are enjoying The Exlpoited?


I was wondering how my neighbors were enjoying Rammstein...

You know, every time I come to this blog, I get weird late-80s flashbacks.

Like now I'm standing in a crowd of sweaty people in flannel shirts in a basement bar/live music venue in Houston, Texas watching the Exploited scream and trying not to get my head kicked in by a skinhead slam dancing.

Ahh, the good old days B.N. - Before Nirvana

i was just thinking, after you mentioned the 80s hair band cd you got for the bachelorette party, that someone needs to make some old skool punk "various artists" cds. and "sid. vicious was. innocent." has to be on it!

YaaaY! Atom + His Package! I've have his bumpersticker on my car for so long I forget it's there sometimes. Then I get frightened when people ask me about my "honor student child"...Makes me wonder if they ever read the whole damn sticker...

And your neightbors probably enjoyed it as much as my neighbors enjoy hearing Controlled Bleeding...

ilike the story about it and i like to join
