Sorry Internet (Episode 83)

And the podcast returns. This week's episode has us looking at Thomas's change in career and the stages of life and jobs and everything related to growing up and older. We talk about what my long term plans for running AbsolutePunk may look like, or turn into, and where we see ourselves in a few years. We spend some time looking back at everything that's gone on over the past two weeks with Pure Noise Records, Set if Off, Warped Tour, the YouTubers, and that whole ... thing. Then, thanks to listener Lauren, we're able to take a lighthearted break to fantasize about where we'd want to live if we weren't living in the United States. Beer and beach please. We finish up this week's episode talking about Acceptance, their new song, Thomas seeing them live, and just how happy we are they're making music. We talk a little about Skate and Surf and the draw of festivals and end talking about Taylor Swift's new video rollout and the feeling of "Big Event" video releases and how they seem so few and far between these days. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.
