Dear RetroDeathPixie:

I was discussing "The Filth & Fury" after class with A.N. -- have you ever happened to see it?

Punk is still suffering from a terminal illness, though. There's only a handful of bands around anymore:

Bad Religion
Against Me!
Dropkick Murphys
D.O.A.

You can bet I'm swinging by for further discussion on Monday after my 10.30 tutorial, because I'm just a sucker for discussion on the subject. I'd have stuck around, but today was midterm exam day.
