Joe Rogan: "Are you worried about the virus?" Michael Malice: "No! I'm worried about the response to the virus... this has given some very very bad people some very useful information about how much crap people will put up with... if (Dr. Fauci) told people to start drinking dog pee, people would be on Twitter wondering what the best breed (of dog pee to drink would be)... and would be yelling at you that you're not doing it." Well said, Mr. Malice. A great quote found in the comments section of the video: "Social media made you all way too comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it." — Mike Tyson As someone who recently worked in Big Tech with a handfull of immature, passive-aggressive nerds, I concur. A lot of the social bullying behavior some people exhibit these days flies in the face of the "anti-bullying" movements spawned from the same generation. Bullying has not dissappeared, it just move

Pop Punk Radio Podcast - Episode 8: Green Day Trilogy Super Album Playlist What if Green Day's trilogy were released as a single album? In this episode, I've curated my own picks for an Uno, Dos, Tre super album with a playlist highlighting my favorite tracks from each part of the trilogy. 1. "99 Revolutions" - Great intro song. Green Day played this song to open their set when I saw them perform a few years ago, and it just felt like a fitting song to get the crowd going with positive energy. 2. "8th Avenue Serenade" - "Say hello from your window..." sings Billie Joe on this uplifting little track. 3. "Let Yourself Go" - Classic, old-school raw Green Day energy. Easily one of the best tracks on the entire trilogy. 4. "Kill The DJ" - Polarizing tune, some people hate it and others love it. Definitely experimental. Personally, I dig the club music feel of the song. 5. "Makeout Party" - Sounds like it came straig
"Avenues & Alleyways" by Rancid This song speaks out against racial bigotry handed down from older generations, and perpetuated by the media. I'll admit that I often have a hard time deciphering what Tim Armstrong is saying without consulting a lyric sheet. However, the lines "he's a different color, but we're the same kid / I'll treat him like my brother, he'll treat me like his" always give me those feel-good goosebumps.

The 2021 season began last week, albeit with a slightly different format and a shorter season. This year, all teams will play 56 games, as opposed to the regular 82. Divisions have been re-aligned in order to compensate for pandemic safety measures. Including one division which is made up entirely of Canadian teams in order to prevent teams from necessitating travel across the US border. The pandemic has certainly took a lot of th
The Ataris are an incredibly under-rated band. Blending emo and pop-punk with alternative influence. They've been around since the late nineties, but only have about five or six full-length albums. They do however have a deep selection of EPs and split albums. For the sake of this review, we are only focusing on full-length albums. #6 - Silver Turns To Rust (2017) Silver Turns To Rust is actually a compilation album. It has one of my favorite Ataris singles in "All Souls Day," which is a song about feeling trapped, perhaps by some kind of mystical spell called love, in a relationship that isn't right. It also includes a longer version of "Fast Times At Dropout High." Favorite Songs: "All Souls Day" / "Beauty, Eh?" / "Fast Times At Dropout High"
