    Truthfully, I didn’t realize Jawbreaker or early HWM were considered emo. I liked emo when I first became aware of it (late 90s, early 2000s), and admittedly was a fan of the Dashboard Confessional and Jimmy Eat World for quite a while. I haven’t listened to a hell of a lot of it lately, and I couldn’t even tell you what passes for emo nowadays.

    I’m with you, Carson. I’m a devout atheist. I’m not militant about it (I’m fine with people having their own beliefs), and I don’t mind some religious imagery or underlying Christian themes (Brian Fallon, for example, is a known Catholic and I love his music. But I cannot stand proselytizing, and can’t listen to anything you’d consider “Christian” music, punk or otherwise.

    Hell yeah! Though, I’m partial to “Holy Roller,” but still…hell yeah!

    I have a pretty awesome Dropkick Murphys/Ducky Boys split 7-inch on green vinyl that I’m pretty fond of, especially as it’s from the Mike McColgan-era Dropkicks, so they were still a street punk band.

    Also, I have a fairly extensive collection of 1970s rock albums that are still in pretty good shape. Neil Young, Rush, Led Zepplin, The Who’s “Quadrophenia” (complete with the 40-something-page booklet insert).

    I got four books for Christmas:

    “Life After Death” by Damien Echols
    “Who Am I” by Pete Townshend
    “Waging Heavy Peace” by Neil Young
    and “Route 19 Revisited,” a biography of The Clash.

    I got out of the vinyl game for a long time, as I had no record player until 3/4 years ago. I’ve spent a bit of time trying to fill in the back catalogs of a lot of bands that I like. Got HWM’s “Caution” and a Chuck Ragan die-cut 7-inch most recently. Also RNDM’s double album “Acts,” and the last Street Dogs album and a couple old Husker Du albums.

    I only recently got in to Hot Water Music, n part because I thought their name was goofy (not a Bukowski fan) so I sorta ignored them before. Given that my tastes tend to be more of the mainstream variety, I’ve had a tough time getting into HWM;s first couple albums, but I like A Flight And A Crash, Caution, and The New What NExt quite a bit….and I love Exister.

    I’m currently rereading Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” for the first time in ages because a friend of a friend is writing a Frankenstein-based comic book (it’s called “Frankenstein Alive Alive” and the artwork is absolutely amazing). I’m also just about finished with the first volume of Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago.” I sorta have a thing for revolutionary literature, particularly of the Russian variety.

    Yes! It’s a surreal thing to have to explain the early 90s music scene (particular the Nirvana v. Pearl Jam bit) to people.

    I only brought up the driver’s license thing because I’ve been legally operating a motor vehicle for the entire duration of a few of our editors lives and that makes me sad. *puts on an old Dashboard Confessional record*
