"Well shit, it’s like no time has passed, and Al is rolling in to work here at the bookstore, telling us a hilarious story about his weekend, and I’m sitting raptured, laughing and inspired." –Liz Mason, manager of Quimby’s Bookstore, editor of Caboose zine
War seems to have frazzled the punks. That's an unusual turn of events for a subculture which gave us "let's have a war," "let's start a war," "war on 45," "my war," "wargasm," "war all the time," and so on. Rock remains rock, war remains war, and, despite everything being subjective and meaning something else entirely from what it appears to under the tenets of post-modernity and end-of-historicism, the fact remains that a lot of dead people is a terrible, terrible thing and a lot of people voluntarily self-inducing hearing loss is a less terrible thing.
