Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail opens up about sexuality, identity, and addiction on the latest episode of the 100 Words or Less Podcast.
For over 9 years I suffered in a cycle of shame over my sexuality, substance abuse, sexual addiction, anxiety, depression, grief and self loathing. I fell into a pit of despair and did a lot of damage to myself and to people around me. Through most of it I kept a pretty clean and convincing sheet over the messiness of my life, which in turn caused even more pain. I did a lot of things that were very dangerous and put myself into situations where I was putting myself and others at risk Over the coarse of the last year I have been able to find a level of...

The AV Club has a nice write-up about this past weekend's Fest, which can be read here.
What makes Fest so different from other punk-affiliated festivals such as Riot Fest or Pouzza Fest is that it serves as a barometer of where the punk scene is while remaining impervious to outside trends. Instead of trying to keep pace with the outside world, Fest has its own focus, giving the bands that play a stamp of approval they can’t get anywhere else.

In 2013, a group of researchers published a paper called Collective Motion of Moshers at Heavy Metal Concerts.
Human collective behavior can vary from calm to panicked depending on social context. Using videos publicly available online, we study the highly energized collective motion of attendees at heavy metal concerts. We find these extreme social gatherings generate similarly extreme behaviors: a disordered gas-like state called a mosh pit and an ordered vortex-like state called a circle pit. Both phenomena are reproduced in flocking simulations demonstrating that human collective behavior is consistent with the predictions of simplified models.

Anti-Flag's Chris Barker, aka Chris #2, has released a new cover of Pete Seeger's "What Did You Learn In School Today?."
We were asked to play Seeger Fest this year celebrating Pete Seeger's life,” explains Chris #2. “In that process going over Pete's incredible collection of songs I stumbled over “What Did You Learn In School Today.” It immediately struck me. I just wanted to do a song that demonstrates why the medium of folk music can be so powerful. That melody lodges itself in your brain, yet the lyrics are tremendously visceral and poignant."

Probably the most interesting news of the day comes in the form of Sour Patch Kids (yes, the candy) opening a home in Brooklyn for touring bands. What's the catch? While the bands stay at the home, they have to create content for the brand via social networks, videos or music. What does everyone think about this?
Nevertheless, there is a quid pro quo associated with staying at the Patch. Artists who stay at the house are expected to create some content that Sour Patch Kids can share across a number of digital channels, which include a Brooklyn Patch-branded Tumblr as well as the brand's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Ms. Bezner said it is also exploring the possibility of...
