As you can see, the top five looks a bit different this month. For starters, it’s not a top five anymore.ย  Also there’s less rambling by me, which I’m sure comes as a major disappointment for many of you, given my unique ability to write with such grace and polish. Like literary Beehtoven as that one very important person once described it. The good news is, I’ve got more music for you and if you happen to have the same taste as me, you’re going to like all of it. I’m trying to re-imagine the site more as an expansive resource for new punk music and less of a soap box for my asinine rantings. Or maybe not. I don’t know actually. I like to write but I get sick of my own writing, so I’m just going to shut up for now and possibly continue with the brain spew some other time. There’s a ton of good stuff in the top ten this month but don’t forget to check out the SCRAP HEAP too. Maybe you’ll find something you think should have been in the top ten, and you’ll write me an email, about it and I’ll post it on the blog and maybe threaten to beat you up a little bit. Yeah bye.
