The mashup artist Pogo went on a pretty nasty misogynistic rant over the weekeend. He's since deleted the posts and called it an "experiment."
I’ve always found that the more I treat a woman like a child, the stronger the relationship, the better the sex and the more often it happens. Discipline, reprimand and complete indifference. I think the feminine woman craves the attributes of a firm father in the man she enters a relationship with. The more I realize it, the more I see modern feminism in a different light – it could well be little more than the collective feminine cry for drama and childlike retaliation.

Bryne Yancey, writing at The Runout, about vaping at shows.
Vaping is harm reduction for smokers looking to either use less nicotine or wean themselves completely off of it. That’s great, because cigarettes are gross. They make your breath, clothes, and if they’re downwind that day, your friends smell terrible. There’s also the whole “they cause cancer” thing. But this isn’t about extolling the virtues of vaping as an alternative to smoking, or decrying vape pens as mouth fedoras as the joke goes. It’s about exercising common courtesy.

Please stop vaping at indoor punk shows. Seriously. Cut it out.

Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem was recently on Triple J's Mornings with Zan.
Across five songs we talked about wearing your heart on your sleeve in your songs, about the in-jokes of Bryan Adams, and just how much Brian hates the musical Grease.

Last week, I got a chance to chat extensively with a personal hero of mine, Butch Walker. We talked about Butch's new album, Afraid of Ghosts, including how the recent loss of his father inspired a new direction for his music, why he decided to have Ryan Adams produce the disc, and why his trademark sarcasm and upbeat songwriting is nowhere to be found. We also touched upon Walker's back catalog, the woeful reasons why no one should be expecting to find Letters on vinyl anytime soon, and why Butch's protege Jake Sinclair took over most of the production duties on the new Fall Out Boy LP.

Check out the interview here.

And so, I think after losing my father, it triggered writing a...

The week began with Blink-182 ... and it's going to end with Blink-182. On this episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast we spend most of the time talking about everything that went down this week in the Blink camp. We look at what news broke, our first reaction to it, what we think of how it all came out, how we think this will impact the band's legacy, what we think the band should (or will) do next, and so much more. We also touch a little on Acceptance's reunion at Skate and Surf and Drew's thoughts on the new Fall Out Boy album which he'll be reviewing early next week. And if you didn't think the universe had a sense of humor: please explain how our episode numbers worked out for this to...

“I juggle a lot of things outside of Blink. I record with tons of different artists, and I always seem to still know how to prioritize Blink. I still love Blink and it’s my #1 priority over everything that I do. But it’s like when you don’t have the same passion to make that your priority as well, it makes it hard to come together as 3 people when one person doesn’t care about it.”

But it’s not like, Now there will never be a long song title. When someone becomes more a fan of the song titles than the songs, it’s a problem.
