The Plague is another good Camus. I'm not big on the beats, I guess bukowski is kind of a love it or hate it kind of thing and I fall mostly into the latter camp. I like Dostoevsky a lot, and Vonnegut of course. He always seems to be the go-to guy for anyone under 25 with a sense of humor. Other than Sci-Fi is kinda my thing. Clarke, Asimov, Bradbury, Wells, **** yeah. Heinlen can eat a dick though.
Yikes! Punk lyfe pretty much sums it up. Going to school, collecting records, travelling around from time to time and getting out to shows on the regular. How about your bad self, still living the post-punk lyfe?
I was about to respond with "the misfits have one good album and... well..." but I suppose a more sincere reply would include The Flesh Eaters, Christian Death, The Cramps... Depending on how much you stretch the definition of "horror punk" (and I'm already taking some pretty serious liberties) you can catch a few pretty good bands under the term.
I'm sorry to tell you that isn't a ska song. Although Sublime had a demonstrably ska influence, that song is not a ska song. It wouldn't really be possible for you to create that link. You could try using a song of theirs that has a ska element, such as Santeria.
I have no idea what kind of paper that is or what level of schooling you are in, but you may consider trying to find something with a lot of secondary source material to back it up, like interviews, etc. That may limit your song choices but it would help you produce a better paper in the end.
in a few years, will i like 'twinkly emo' and regret not liking it now?
Emo's still a thing? I thought dissapeared completely a few years ago and its erstwhile enthusiasts all got into indie or dubstep or something. Maybe it still exists in isolated pockets throughout smalltown america though. Who knows.
I can still enjoy ...And Out Come the Wolves with only slightly more irony than with any other music I listen to. (I do not listen to music with irony.) That's the only Rancid album I ever really got into. (Not that I listened to many others, I think I just had Let's Go & the 2000 s/t.) It is one of those running jokes amongst myself & band mates, for example someone was singing "Roots Radicals" while we were walking down the street in NYC yesterday, and of course I thought of "NEW YORK CITY, I WISH I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY BAAAAACK TO OLYMPIA..."
Lest you guys think I am above making Rancid references in my day to day life.
I'll one-up you with a photo I took a couple months ago
I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of doing that
Good for her. I've also been pretty impressed with the media coverage and discussions I've seen about the topic. I would have expected a lot more ignorance. Most people are even using the correct pronouns.
Anyway, as for what will happen to the band, they can't get any worse at this point so that's reassuring.
