Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

Intrigued by this project, which documents the 70s/80s punk rock scene in my hometown of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

As its Kickstarter page says:

Green Bay is easily identified as being the home town of the smallest National Football League franchise, the Green Bay Packers. It is also home to meat packing plants, paper mills, vegetable factories and cheese curds. Behind the scenes, Green Bay fostered a punk rock scene that spawned from meager beginnings and had a hard core roster of local punk bands, featuring some with ties to football team itself!!

More detail can be found here.

  • NFL quarterbacks have continued to rewrite the record books in recent years, perhaps none as spectacularly as Green Bay’s [Aaron] Rodgers and New Orleans’ [Drew] Brees. Rodgers’ career passer rating (104.9) is nearly 10 points higher than No. 2 [Steve] Young (96.8), No. 3 [Tom] Brady (96.6) and No. 4 [Peyton] Manning (95.7). Rodgers also boasts the lowest INT rate (1.7%) and best TD-INT ratio (3.7 to 1) in history.”

  • This is creepy and annoying, re: the Obamacare rollout: “‘If I’m uninsured and it’s October, I won’t be able to go anywhere without escaping a message,’ John Gilbert, who leads Enroll America’s field operations, told supporters in a Thursday night presentation. ‘I turn on my TV and there’s an ad. I go on the Internet and there’s another ad. Someone shows up at my door to talk about it. I go to church and my pastor is talking about it.'” —————- Hey! Go fuck yourself, Gilbert.
