Hey all. Early Monday update, no Friday update. Que Sera sera, right?

I was surfin' the web a little while uploading this strip, and since I like to post videos with my comics I thought I'd share this with all y'all. It's Canadian news segment circa 1977 about the then emerging punk scene. Check it out, it's pretty weird/ funny:

Oh also, apparently punks are just in it for the money. Apparently, we're all sell outs in the business of freakin' out the norms and getting kids to cut themselves. Apparently...

Wait, i think you just described the modern emo sterotype. XD

that segment was such an over simplification of what punk rock was. Little did they know the influence on modern music and culture it would have.

No kidding. It's so funny to watch retro news reports like that and see how scared everyone was of this stuff. Like punk was going to be the end of civilization as we know it. Give me a break. =P

Great video. "We're not the Three Stooges, guys!"

Did they not all seem way drugged out compared to today's punk rockers? Geez.

Of course not, there are 4 of them. ;)
Yeah those kids were totally on something. It was very amusing to watch.

That's such a hilarious video. XD That reporter woman seemed remarkably po'd. "Industrial-level earplugs" fff... I wonder what happened to her at the concerts. (._.)

Also, I think I heard one of those guys say the Beatles were for old people. (o_o)

I liked the man that explained to us what parts of his forehead had dealt with kids and which parts had BEEEEEEEEEPed.

The guy at the beginning wasn't putting down the entire punk movement, though, I think. He was putting down the parts of it that were gimmicky and purely for profit and the followers of it that were just doing it because they had nothing better to do or because it was cool. Which is true for everything, imo.
