Something New About Aging

I've been scarce of late, I know, for a variety of reasons. But I'm still reading those of you who post here and am gearing up to share more myself. Part of the reason I've been parsimonious with my blogging is that my writing and editing time is taken up by the new publishing venture Souciant that I began with Joel Schalit, Jennifer Crakow and Rich Jensen this past spring.

Lately, I've been contributing pieces of my own every other week, though I hope to get back into a weekly groove soon. My piece for today reflects on the newly reissued film 1991: The Year Punk Broke, which documents a European tour by Sonic Youth -- one of my all-time favorite bands -- and Nirvana, right before the release of Nevermind, which is celebrating its twentieth-anniversary this week.

I'm fairly pleased with my work this time, which is saying something, considering how hard on myself I've been lately. Please go go check it out, if you have time, and also take the time, when you're able, to peruse Souciant's other offerings. I think we're building it into a really interesting place to visit.
