Sonic Overload 7/23/12

No words I write here could ever convey the horror of the events in Aurora, CO a few nights ago. 12 people dead, over 50 people wounded in a shooting rampage at a movie theatre. And I also don’t know if what I did say after the first song, concerning the availability of firearms and the ongoing debate over “gun control,” was well-expressed. The thing is there are quick reactions from those who think any sort of firearms should be available, including assault weapons, and there are those who want more controls on or the outright abolition of gun ownership. My own feelings are mixed and perhaps somewhere in the mushy middle of the spectrum. In the meantime, it’s another episode of senseless violence and one wonders what can be done to prevent this from happening again. The sad truth is it probably will happen again. And I don’t think any one person or group has the solution.

But it’s not all doom and gloom for the next two hours—if you look at the playlist, I think you’ll see that’s the case. Time for some punk rock therapy...
