While touring with The Frantic, I remember sitting in the back of the van playing a few of these songs while watching the sunset. That line of work isn't conventional in any sense, but I would try to remind myself that there isn't no playbook to life. If it makes you happy, do it. If it helps others, you're probably doing it for the right reasons.

This playlist isn't in your face punk rock. Quite the opposite. No bullshit, no gimmicks. Go for a drive, or just sit back and enjoy. -JW

Here we find Danny in his natural habitat. 

Here we find Danny in his natural habitat. 

"As the old saying goes: "the older you get, the more quiet you become, cause knowledge speaks while wisdom listens." But for some people, they'll always be dumb as shit or young at heart. So, listen to these jams and rip it up like a young blood. Skate a ditch, reverse DDT your roommate or bake a Cambodia dish. It's all good as long as you're being yourself." - Danny

Here's a playlist for you sad sons of bitches all the way from Long Beach, Ca. Danny has been sending me music since AIM and dial up were relevant, and is like a punk rock guru. He's truly heaven sent. If he were to be featured on a trading card, here some shit that would probably be on it.

Danny enjoys the following:

Basketball

Skateboarding

Vinyl Collecting

Cooking

and most importantly, big booty latinas.

Most of the songs here have the same theme. From the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows, love can bring a lot out of a person. But people learn a lot about themselves throughout any relationship. Whether it would be with a significant other, a friend, or even alcohol and drugs.

It's a driving force of the human condition, and no matter how good, or bad, the experience may be. It shows us a reflection of ourselves. A reflection that we can either choose to ignore, or change.

Sound Affects 06: This Here Revolution Rock: The Clash & The Songs They Covered.

In my opinion (that you probably don’t give a fuck about), The Clash should be in everyone’s music collection. Each album different from the last, all unique in their own ways while catering to just about every music genre they could have. Here we have a Podcast of the original songs that they covered from their various studio albums and singles collections. One of my favorite things about The Clash was that any song they covered, they made their own. No matter how wide this podcast is with different sounding songs, you can throw the clash versions all together and they all sound like they’re clash originals. Point and case, you probably didn’t know half these songs were even covers. One of the many reasons they were dubbed  “The only band that matters”. As you can hear in this podcast, from Rockabilly, Reggae, Love Ballads to Jazz they took a swing at em and turned out something bitchin' each time. You can really hear how wide their influence really was. Fuckin nailed it. 

 Whatever. This isn’t a history lesson and I’m no journalist. You wanna get educated?? go to fucking college ya dweeb. Give this shit a listen.

"Matt has spent a lot of his life skateboarding and playing music. While out skating recently, he brought to my attention how much our musical tastes were influenced by the skate videos we grew up watching. So he threw together a playlist, and even included the information on who's part the song belonged to, and the year the video came out. So grab your board, blast these tunes, and go get some." -JW
