mways, its never going to happen if you know anything about mackayes personality. also, listen to the evens because theyre incredibly good and also get your head out of the past because its not happening

I like the Evens. However, I'm a sucker for nostalgia though, what can I say?

Anyone else go to the Q and A? It was thoroughly enjoyable. Two real funny guys with real interesting opinions on the current state of publishing, both music and books.

Hopefully the next SY thing sounds a lot like Entombed.

"I prefer VHS myself," said Thurston Moore when I told him I have a 15-year-old video tape copy of 1991: The Year That Punk Broke, a tour documentary featuring Sonic Youth, Nirvana and Dinosaur, Jr., amongst many other groundbreaking indie rock acts of the day, completely intact. Moore was about to take the stage with Ian MacKaye, of Minor Threat and Fugazi fame, for a discussion about punk and publishing at yesterday’s Brooklyn Book Festival. I wanted to know if the DVD version would ever see the light of day.

"There's sort of proprietary issues because of all the Nirvana stuff in it and all that stuff is under control of whoever control's Kurt [Cobain's] estate—That Which Will Not Be Named is how we refer to it—and we don't really want to release it until we can release it with all the extra footage. There's a whole second film and it's a whole other 90 minutes; a completely different cut of all the footage. And it's even crazier! It has amazing stuff in it. So until we can do that we're not going to do it—it might be a while," he said.

...and the t-shirt Thurston is wearing is of the Belgian black metal band The Beast. Where the hell did he get that? They are completely unknown even in europe!
