Ahhh...not too bad. My aunt leaves on Tuesday, so it will be just me and my old man. I just left there. I kind of had it our with him. He tends to think his opinion is fact and if you state a differing opinion you are putting him down. Pretty horrible way to live. I usually keep my trap shut, but I have my limits! Anyhow...nothing I can't deal with. It's just a shame, He's so judgmental and angry all the time. He has been this way for a while, way before the stroke. The stroke definitely hasn't helped. Life goes on. But, I digress from my digression, I'm here to sooth the savage beast with good vibes!

Hi Paul
Long time caller
First time listener
In reference to the Emo reference
The Dischord bands at the time of Egghead embrace ignition etc. were coined Emo by the old time Straight Edgers. They wanted to make sure no one mistook these records for Hardcore or straight edge. Many of the early Straight Edge bands evolved into that Emo genre. Then somehow the Emo genre became a completely different scene so the Dischord type bands dropped the Emo label. ( the reference)
Avatar 6:46pm northguineahills:

hence, why many people differentiated said bands as either emocore or screamocore….
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Mr. Pumpy:

I thought elmocore was all about sesame street and puppets and shit

Avatar 6:53pm JakeGould:

When I first heard the word “emo” being used to describe a genre is was literally just a Dischord records thing with the “Rites of Spring.” Then I heard it used to describe “The Promise Ring.” And then — somehow ” “My Chemical Romance” is emo? I barely get that.

Emocore and screamcore came much later
Kids referred to the Smashing Pumpkins as Emo
I booked screamo and emocore bands like 10 years after. What I’ll never accept is kids that label their music as post punk or post hardcore. Either you is or you ain’t!!
Avatar 6:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Choggie, You are right, but The Spotlight Kid, which is probably the worst produced Beefheart album is my favorite.

Avatar 7:03pm JakeGould:

@MrPumpy: Don’t sweat it too much. For perspective, my dad always had financial stress but never took it out on others in the family. Then after he had heart surgery, I was a kid and he sent me out to buy a bottle of vitamin C. I didn’t know there were different types, so I bought a pricier bottle with rosehips in it and he flipped out.

Hospitalization can really just bring frustration to the fore. Weather it out.

Avatar 7:13pm JakeGould:

@PJ: The Dischord connection is very real, “Emo, which began as a post-hardcore subgenre, was part of the 1980s hardcore punk scene in Washington, D.C. as something different from the violent part of the Washington, D.C. hardcore scene. Minor Threat fan Guy Picciotto formed Rites of Spring in 1984, using the musical style of hardcore punk and combining the musical style with melodic guitars, varied rhythms, and personal, emotional lyrics. Many of the band's themes, including nostalgia, romantic bitterness and poetic desperation, became familiar tropes of later emo music.”

He certainly wasn't always like that and didn't raise me to be that way. I think there may be a correlation between that behavior and him watching so much cable news...no joke!

  7:23pm PJ:

@JakeGould: I was not part of the “scene”, but I did go to tons of shows in that time period, and I honestly don’t recall anyone using the term “emo”. Could be that I was not paying attention, or that I was not in the right circles (more likely), but it just sounded funny when I first heard it in the ‘90’s - isn’t all music emotional?

jeez -the alcohol connection too.
my father used to drink over a pint of hard liquor in a night, several night/week for decades. he was funny and was known as a life of the parties. then when my older brother's alcohol problem became unavoidable he quit. i'd say cold turkey but i don't think he had withdrawal symptoms. (as i wouldn't either)
he'd already quit smoking a few years before that.
he gradually became a grump after all that.

I let it pass. Very rare I’ll bark back because he did not have a great upbringing. So I just let 99% go. I’ve had to prove him wrong several occasions especially when he knows he will get better directions from me then from Waze or better recipes and sources then YouTube. 2 for me 1000 for him

The thing about cable news and even AM radio is many people who — honestly — are inherently conservative just listen and watch that stuff all day. On the “left” nobody really just sits and listens to the liberal/left media with the same immersive passion. Like when “Air America” (the radio network) was created, I appreciated it but there was no way I would ever listen to that endlessly.

the way it seems to me, the term "post-punk" suggests that punk was a fashion, and that fashion has ended. total bullshit. it wasn't always called that but it's existed for at least 60 years and still does.
wire (for example) was not "post punk" it was either punk or it wasn't.

Jake, one thing I find particularly distasteful about NPR is their week end programming targeted at my age group. As if all the dockers wearing shmoes need to catch up on the world of everything they ignored during the work week. Total middle brow crap.
