Just finished watching a documentary on Polio in America

He had another book of stuff other than “Actual Air”?
Rocking that gear and looking good while doing it.

Why Greg Graffin has been one of my punk heroes for almost a decade now.
Because I’ve never looked like a “standard” punk. I look like the kid next door that your parents always point out as being polite. I’m a “square” (A square going nowhere, to quote the Descendents).

I MET DANIEL CLOWES!
That was a thing that happened today.
I met motherfucking Daniel Clowes, the comic book genius behind “Ghost World”, “David Boring”, “20th Century Eightball”, “Like a Velvet Glove Cast In Iron”, and “Ice Haven”.
He signed my copy of “Pussey!” and was really nice.

This is probably the only 9/11-related thing that I will be posting today.
