Punk's Not Dead

Susan Dynner and her punk conspirators have been working on what has got to be a true labor of love for the past few years, a film entitled Punk's Not Dead.

I have no idea what this movie is going to be like, but Susan seems to be genuinely interested in presenting the complete picture of punk rock, then and now. Now you have a chance to speak your mind about what punk rock means to you. This is from the Punk's Not Dead website:
"Love it or hate it, if you’ve got something to say about the state of punk today, we want to hear it.

Loads of documentaries about punk focus on the same handful of bands, repeating the same old story over and over again. For once, we’re going to invite the fans of the music into discussion.

Punk’s Not Dead tells a different story, looking at punk through the many perspectives of those directly involved today. We want to expand our story to document punk communities all over the world, in places like Osaka, Mexico City, Prague and all over the US. However, our budget prevents us from traveling there ourselves.

That’s where you come in!"

In a clever bit of DIY filmmaking, Susan is soliciting video contributions from punk bands, punk fans and anyone who has a strong opinion about the state of punk today. You only have until October 15 to get your contribution to them, so speak now or forever hold your peace!

Hey Alice,

Have you ever thought about adding a bulletin board to your website so that people can interact with each and answer each other's questions?
