These days, it seems that everyone’s talking about what you can and can’t say about suicide, or about sexism in the punk rock scene, or about what guy said something dumb about cops. But listen, we need to push all of this aside and talk about what is important, relevant and contemporary in the punk rock scene: We need to talk about Lemmy Kilmister.

I called Joe Queer out for posting a link to the GoFundMe account for the cop who murdered Michael Brown and thanking him for his “service,” so Ben Weasel called me and my friend Danny “fucking diaper babies.”

So, once upon a time I was selling a poster on eBay that I’d done for some bands that were favorites of mine in high school. And then both of the guys from both of those bands said some really ugly, irredeemable shit online while the auction was up. And so I took the auction down. At that point, the idea that someone would have my art for those bands proudly displayed on their wall made me unhappy to think about. And then, after I took the auction down, a few people wrote to me asking why, as they’d been following the auction or had bid on it, etc etc. And so I made a very brief statement clarifying why I took it down. I didn’t “@-reply” or tag anyone involved, I didn’t call for a boycott, I didn’t throw down any gauntlets. Just let my followers know what happened in as calm and magnanimous a way as I could think of.
And then one of my high school heroes called me a “creep” and an “insufferable twat” and referred to my poster as “asinine”. The asinine thing really seems like more of a vocabulary show-off than anything, as the word doesn’t really apply in any way to, you know, creating art to promote that dude’s band? But I’ll give him a pass since it’s basically the least stupid thing he’s said online in the past two days.
Anyhow. Just kinda felt like sharing that. I don’t really have a point here and I’m kinda too weirded out to really be, like, sad or angry or anything. So please don’t assume that. It’s just… you don’t not share something like this, right?
Fun side-story: One of those retweets and two of those favorites on Ben’s post came from that guy from last October who sent me straight-up one of the creepiest and stalkery-est series of emails I’ve gotten ever and his girlfriend. Haven’t heard from either of them in nearly a year until now. Huh.

Most punk fans have their own Mount Rushmore, whether they’ve spoken aloud about it to others or not.

A lifetime in the shade, favors never been repaid, bitter tears and broken hearts that pave the way…
But I’ll take em one by one and smash em down until we’ve won, it’s the only way I’m getting through today.
