Hello everyone and welcome to Navel Gazing: your look back in the week in Punknews. I'm Brittany Strummer and I'll be your guide through some of the juiciest, most popular and otherwise noteworthy stories from the last seven days. Remember, every Punknews story is built from tips from our wonderful, good-looking readers, so get to submitting. Here's what got the strange, slow and old community talking this week:
- Ian Mackaye discussed how he isn't too keen on the way social networking websites affect independent music.
- Virginia is working to prevent a zombie Obama apocalypse.
- Henry Rollins expressed his views on the Occupy movement.
- CNN interviewed Pennywise's Jim Lindbergh about his book of punk rock and fatherhood that has now been turned into a documentary.
- Screeching Weasel released a new song entitled "Muscle Mary".
- Descendents front man, Milo Aukerman, discussed the possibility of new material from the band.
- Say Anything's Max Bemis has re-opened his song shop and is willing to write a song about any topic for a price.
With that, we hand over this Sunday evening to the Punknews community, where anything is possible, from the next amusing-then-overwrought meme, to the creation of bands and message boards, to alienating sports chatter. So talk amongst yourselves, spin some tracks in the Navel Gazing turntable.fm room and we'll see you Monday morning.
