It's Memorial Day weekend.... well, it will be in a few hours, at least. M'self and my little brood are bound for my long-suffering mom's place out in Lawn Guy Land (say it out loud for a fleeting moment of mirth). Blog-wise, I have a few irons in the fire (notably the big reveal of my last Flaming Pablum Photo Quiz location), but until then, here are two vids I wasted large swathes of my morning viewing.
First up, here's yet another doc-in-the-works about No Wave. I remember getting all psyched up years ago for the last No Wave documentary, that being the ultimately spotty and unsatisfying "Kill Your Idols." This one, being that it's being put together by someone who was actually there, seems more promising. Check it out.
Next up is a little vintage NYHC from 1985, starring those endearingly intimidating thugs in Agnostic Front. I'm not going to lie: While I loved the band's records like Cause for Alarm and Victim in Pain (despite the pointedly tasteless cover art of the latter), I demurred from ever attending one of their shows, as I was concerned that I might get duly scalped and pulverized for being the ninety-pound sissymary I inarguably was in 1985. Ah well, my loss.
Have a nice weekend, everyone. Drive safely.
