my partner in crime Matt and I are back with another razorcake self-reflection funtime podcast! recorded on V-Day so we’re extra jaded, there’s talk of masturbation, phone sex, and other nonsense in between excellent punk tunes. also Matt’s intro is brilliant (because duh) so read on!
“You’re bound to get idears if you go thinkin’ about stuff.” –SteinbeckThis podcast was recorded on Valentine’s Day, which is a holiday that’s more pointless than Easter. A good holiday is one that resurrects the past and inserts it into the present. Remembrance can be a revolutionary action. The resurrection of the history of the oppressed (or suppressed history) is the foundation of political progress. This is what should fill our calendars; not fucking plush teddy bears holding a plastic heart full of jelly beans. I’d like to elaborate on this and tie it in with music, but I have records that need listening to. Anyway, I’ll say this: when I’m angry I like to listen to music. It allows me to wag my mind finger at strawmen. It’s the aloe on the sunburn of existence. Jeez, I need to sleep. So, goodbye valentine, goodbye guilt, goodbye god, and goodbye Alaska. —Matthew

    The final in my trilogy of podcasts dedicated to creatures in the natural world. In this episode, I’m focused on songs with animals in the track name. No bugs, no birds, just animals. Call it “other,” if you will, but these animals rule. I mean, who doesn’t like dogs and cats? Or jackals? Or wolfenswans? Well, they’re all here (and more!) in this podcast.

    Tracklisting:
    Coalesce, “Wild Ox Moan” (Relapse)

    Helms Alee, “Lionize” (Hydra Head)
    Nails, “Cry Wolf” (Southern Lord)
    Japanther, “Wolfenswan” (Plan-It-X)
    DYS, “Wolfpack” (XClaim!)
    The Icarus Line, “Feed A Cat To Your Cobra” (Crank!)
    Burning Love, “Made Out Of Apes” (Southern Lord)
    —-
    Trans Am, “Music For Dogs” (Thrill Jockey)
    Oneida, “What’s Up, Jackal?” (Jagjaguwar)
    Sweep The Leg Johnny, “New Buffalo” (Deep Elm)
    Descendents, “I Wanna Be a Bear” (New Alliance)
    Chisel, “The Dog in Me” (Gern Blandsten)
    —-

What better way to ring in the Spring season than with a Top Ten of 2013 countdown so unbelievably long overdo it’s a miracle Razorcake’s even allowing it. So here we go! Are you curious what Mitch Clem’s favorite albums of last year were but not curious enough to just go read him blog about it several months ago? Well yer in luck, buckaroo, because this very special installment of the Razorcake Musical Punk Rock Family Podcast features a selection of hits from that exact list, plus so much idiotic rambling between tracks that the episode doesn’t even wind up running significantly shorter than normal despite featuring four fewer songs than normal! Now THAT’S what I call never shutting the hell up! Ruminations on the popularity of Beyonce, the official names of those labels in the center of a vinyl record, Mitch singing a lot more than normal, and copious shoutouts to Donna, our only fan, abound! Get on it, punx!

donnaramone deserves all the shoutouts! so go ahead get reacquainted with some of the finest tunes from 2013, thanx to Mitch! fall in love all over again!

    Razorcake Podcast #305 with Bryan Static
I’d like to believe I’m becoming a better person, but I don’t think that’s necessarily true. All that I can tell is that I’m becoming a different person. The future is very uncertain for me at this point. I honestly have no idea where I’ll be in six months. So, why not blast some killer guitar rock and forget all about the crushing weight of responsibility? I know that’s what I’m doing!As always, send your happy thoughts or annotations of old foreign movies to-bryanstatic@gmail.com.-Bryan Static

    Razorcake Podcast #300 with Todd and Daryl | 1984…30 Years Later
Patterns and DelaysHuman nature seeks meaning patterns. 300 is a nice round number. It sounds official. Razorcake’s done 300 podcasts. That’s significant, like a road marker. The wheels have stayed on that long. Coast to coast. The numbers bear us out.The theme of this podcast is the year 1984. More numbers. 2014 is the 30th anniversary of 1984. 30 and 300. That’s the tie-in.In 1984, I was twelve. I was also living in a rural Nevada town. I hadn’t heard punk rock yet, but I’d read about it at the library and was anxious to hear it. I picked up my first punk record in 1985. I purchased it at The Underground in Las Vegas. It was JFA’s Blatant Localism. The mid-to-late ‘80s was a rough time for punk rock bands and music. Its popularity was definitely on the wane. It was, however, a pretty great time for a young kid in the middle of nowhere to pick up what would end up as classic vinyl at reasonable prices. Then, as now, I think punk rock is more diverse than people give it credit. I also think that the podcasts that Daryland Idid prior to 300 stand toe-to-toe with the music on this one. Legacies and deeper exploration. Gems in the roiling seas of shit. Give those two podcasts we posted thirty years and get back to me in 2044.This podcast is dedicated to Chris Peigler.

    Razorcake Podcast #299 with Candice and Matt!(glitch art .gif by Candice!(aka halffiction/ infinity-machine))
Last night I cried while watching a documentary about Bronies. Sure, I was drunk, but it got me thinking about the importance of having a sanctuary. A place where you’re safe to be vulnerable. For those of you not in the know, a brony is an adult male fan of the show My Little Pony. The documentary showed men from around the world gathering at a convention to celebrate their shared love of a children’s show. I couldn’t help but see parallels to Awesome Fest or things of that ilk. As someone who studies philosophy of science, reads the Silmarillion, and quotes Rancid lyrics with Shatnerian intensity I can relate to being passionate about things most people find embarrassing. Every Friday, Candice, Todd, and I get to work on things that we’re passionate about. We work hard and goof around. Razorcake is a sanctuary. I think it’s a sanctuary to a lot of you weirdoes taking the time to read this. It’s a sanctuary because we believe what we do is important and worth the stress it takes to care about something that gets condescended to and written off. Music is what brought us together, but it’s the personal ethics that keep us all here. At the end of the day I don’t care what you’re into as long as you’re not an asshole. So, be kind to each other. Be kind to the Bronies. And be kind to me. 

Unless I’m being an asshole, then you can make fun of me.Yee-ha! Matthew

    Razorcake Podcast #298 with Todd Taylor!
The past several months have been pretty unforgiving to Razorcake as a fanzine. A couple weeks ago, our local printer of the past thirteen years shuttered their doors. The place where we’ve dropped off our bulk mail also closed. We’ll now have to go further down a busy freeway in a small truck that’s so laden that the mud flap (singular) scrapes around corners.
We’ll adjust. I’m confident of that. It’s just that the unknowns are stressful and intimidating. We now have to decipher different types of codes. (Like never drop off mail at the international station on a Friday unless you want to wait for two hours to get in the building. Don’t make any boxes heavier than fifteen pounds if you can help it. Making statements to our printer, like “I want the blackest black ink you can give us,” and doing weird shit on our end to make sure it happens, although it makes little sense as a set of directions.)These are pragmatics, the backbone activities to a fanzine.They’re pretty invisible.Below is music, the spirit of our fanzine.It’s pretty invincible. In my book, at least.-Todd PS: What the fuck? In the last two months of 2013, I got my mitts on over ten amazing DIY punk albums. Since I started writing for fanzines fulltime in 1996, I’ve never heard so much awesome music released in such a short timeframe. We win.
