Punk Is Dead. Long Live MMA.

I don’t remember where I heard it or from whom. All I remember is agreeing with it. The referenced sentiment is that punk is dead and cannot be revived because, you see, what we called ‘Punk’ is now the norm.

All in all is all we are (This world sucks!)

Welcome back folks,

Last time we spoke, I said that this world is hell on earth and other pretty harsh words to that effect. I closed by saying that we’re here to serve a purpose and that if we resist the understandable urge to “check out” early, we may find meaning.

Not a “best ever”. Taste is taste and all that.

What’s on tap for today? Today is about a new-found respect. Continue reading
