I've been encountering a lot of references to punk rock in my life the last few days.
RW posted about a blogger friend of his who is recovering from some pretty serious surgery. He posted a video from The Ramones in the post as a bit of a get well wish. I've never really been big on The Ramones, but that is a topic for another day.
I watched the film Juno the other night. It included, amongst other references, a discussion on which was better...the punk scene in 1977 or the punk scene of 1993. I would argue that it was kinda over by 1993 and that 1991 was the peak of that particular branch of punk history. That, however, is an argument for another day.
Then I came across this list of the 20 Most Punk Movies of All-Time. I think that many of the films on that list were ABOUT punk and weren't necessarily punk themselves. But that is a...well, you see where this is going?
So I sat down tonight and started to write a post about punk and my own experiences with it. And I only got a paragraph into it when I knew that it was going to be much to long to post in one blog entry. Punk has been pretty important in my life and my mind was racing with what I was gonna write. And there was much too much.
So next week, starting on Monday, you get a full week of PUNK!!!
How's that for a tease?
I haven't decided on the daily topics yet, so if you have a broad subject about punk that you would like me to bore you with...please leave a comment.
So next week, put on your best pair of Docs, pierce something and stop on by for a conversation about my favorite type of music. You know you wanna.
