SO THIS WEEK
- I’m moving to Brooklyn
- My band is droppin our record
- Super Smash Bros comes out
Pretty good week huh? But that’s not even fuckin all!
MY FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM IS THE BEASTLIEST. GOLDEN TAINT IS NOW 4-0. ANDREW LUCK, JIMMY GRAHAM, AND DEMARCO MURRAY ARE BRINGIN CHABOI MUCH PRIDE AND HAPPINESS.
As grateful as I am (and I am very grateful) for being able to see The Get Up Kids/Braid/The Promise Ring/other bands, I think it’s kinda lame how all these bands have reunited just when all these new noodley emo bands are hitting the forefront of popularity. Seeing all these musicians in their 30’s/40’s kinda takes away from the romanticism and prestige of the bands’ heydays in the 90’s.
That being said, it doesn’t make them any less important or integral to the progress of punk and indie. It’s just feels like a kind of forced rekindling of the past. But fuck, I’m a huge hypocrite. Like if Jawbreaker were to reunite, you could bet your BOTTOM dollar, I’d be paying thousands of pesos to get into that gig.
