Happy Record Store Day

“Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store.” — Jack White

Indeed.

Today I read possibly the most unpunk thing, ever. A singer-songwriter on Facebook was commenting on a photo of a raucous punk show at a local venue.  She wanted to know how she could attract such an enthusiastic audience. The subject of anger came up. It seemed apropos to quote John Lydon. “Anger is an energy,” I responded. She wrote, “My spirit doesn’t vibrate at that frequency.” Once I controlled my gag reflex, and attempted to raise my own frequency via forgiveness, I was compelled to listen to the song I was referencing, “Rise” by Public Image Ltd.  Say what you will about John Lydon but as uncool as it is to admit,  I’ll take the Pistols over shitty commercial Clash any day. (For the uninitiated, Clash vs. Sex Pistols is akin to Beatles vs. Rolling Stones.) This tasty morsel came up in the search results. Of course I had to share. My spirit doesn’t vibrate at the selfish frequency.  Please enjoy John Lydon’s commentary while watching  Part of Me, the film about Katy Perry. My favorite part is when he says “I don’t like them songs! They’re getting in the way of an interesting human being.”
