Let’s Talk About That Elisa Lam Doc, Black Metal, and Cancel Culture

Anyone near my age who likes heavy music will remember certain points where mass media and our preferences have intersected in sometimes unfortunate ways.

You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory

“Feel so restless, I am,Beat my head against a poleTry to knock some sense, Down in my bones.” Supposedly Bob Dylan said he wished he’d written that Johnny Thunders song.
