Default The Day We All Went Punk

Pretty decent After School Special dug out of the archives



article - http://dangerousminds.net/comments/p...school_special

just finished watching it. 4.5 stars. half star deducted for lack of perceived punk activity. he's actually a really good kid.

Quote:
What the program was trying to do, I think, is reduce the decision to be punk to the relatively manageable issue (in 45 minutes) of taking on an “unacceptable” personal style. But the problem is, bringing the subject down to that plane renders everything everybody does unintelligible, nothing fits together. In the end, the show makes it clear that Terry kind of does have to make a choice between the pink mohawk and his desire to continue with the orchestra—but why would he want that??? Punk has no context here. In a way, the intolerant old-timers in the show are right: deciding to be punk does mean crossing a line over which there may well be no easy return, you can’t just wander back and forth as you wish, unless you’re supremely charming or talented or both—and even then, that ability may come only after years of societal rejection.

Amiable as Terry is, you can’t be a punk unless you’re a punk on the inside—and we never see any evidence of that in this friendly young fellow.

4.5? Are you taking the piss or is it really worth watching?

I should have tried to be clearer - I wasn't sure if this is a banana/cw parody thread or if you actually recommend to watch it.

he's a hipster so it's an ironic star scale that is actually the inverse of how good it actually is, so in normal non hipster terms it's .5 stars

I remember in 87 or 88 my dad sitting me down and saying he wasn't worried about my crazy hair or clothes or weird music.. as long as I "wasn't one of those fags."

and now it's just a fashion choice so you can be an orchestra dork with a mohawk and nobody would even think you are a punk rocker

I remember I went through a phase of listening to and idolizing nothing but 80s New Romantic stuff. The New Romantic movement is basically the exact opposite of punk rock.

new romantics are an offshoot of punk

when they talk about "new wave"

the new wave of punk

that's what it means
