Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms has posted a new blog.
To be clear: I hate the idea of thuggish censorship. I hate violence. I strongly distrust guns. I hate radical fundamentalism, whether it’s islam or christianity. Fuck it all. However, I think that our narrative is deeply flawed when we see these kinds of acts and don’t even ask why they’re happening beyond “wow, these assholes hate our freedom and get super butthurt when you mock their dumb prophet.” That’s ignoring A) that this is an act perpetrated by crazy people and B) that there’s rage out there that’s very real and it’s the result of personal loss and horrible grief. “They hate our freedom?” Sheeeit, maybe because our...

The Lawrence Arms will be doing a short string of shows in the UK this fall. Dates in the replies.

Brendan Kelly's latest blog looks into the worst ways to die.
That dude from Brand New sings a line that I think is pretty good: “Jesus Christ, I’m not scared to die.

We’ve all already done it before. Begin at the moment you were born and go backwards to the beginning of time. How long is that? If you answered anything other than “an infinite amount of time” then god bless your foolish heart. You’ve already not existed for eternity and you’re fine right now, right?

In a recent interview with Punks in Vegas, Mike Park (Asian Man Records) revealed that he's asked Brendan Kelly to do a children's album for his Fun Fun imprint.
I've already talked to Brendan and he’s on board, but having him actually finish is another story altogether.
