My only release -- is when I get smashed!:
WHICH well-known foreign-policy writer used to play in the semi-classic NYHC '88 band Breakdown? ... WHICH well-known foreign-policy writer lent me a CD (that I need to return) of Breakdown's June 1988 show at the Ratt in Boston (where Joe King would later meet his girl)? ... WHICH well-known foreign-policy writer neglected to mention the sheer awesomeness of that show? ... And is that Vinny Stigma I see in the crowd? ... JUST ASKING.

Totally Kissinger.

Holy shit.
I had no idea you were a fan of 1980s hardcore.
I saw Breakdown live back in the day, tons of those bands.

And look: there's a new documentary.

Would that be Larry Kaplan?

Brendan, I can't disclose my sources, man. Have you seen "American Hardcore" yet?

Ah, but can you tell me, without googling, which right-wing blowhard once went on a date with Janet Jackson? Or which member of the Lemonheads is now teaching classics at Bryn Mawr?

Just asking.

Oops: Janis Joplin. Too late at night for me.
