I like songs about drifters, books about the same
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane
Walked on off to another spot
I still haven’t gotten anywhere that I want
Can anyone else not wait until Fall so they can return to dressing in clothes that they actually like?

POZ Decade: Say Anything - …Is A Real Boy
Say Anything …Is A Real Boy was released ten years ago this week, and PropertyOfZack is launching our next Decade feature in honor of the album today! We have commentary on the album from POZ team members Adrienne Fisher, Caitlin DeWeese, and Erik van Rheenen, so enjoy and reblog to let us know your thoughts on …Is A Real Boy ten years later!
How …Is a Real Boy holds up in 2014
Ten years gone and after a cavalcade of other records that only orbit the core artistry that …Is a Real Boy demonstrated (well, in this writer’s opinion, anyway), Say Anything’s debut remains one of the finest yet most wildly bombastic records that’s ever been dropped into the laps of emo/punk fans. They may have gotten shuffled under the umbrella of the aforementioned scene with their initial signing to Doghouse Records back in the early 2000s, but …Is a Real Boy’s timeless nature has nothing to do with the aesthetics that immortalized classic records of the same ilk.
Furiously creative with rollercoaster theatrics and spitfire sentiments, the record’s artistic flair pushed the boundaries of the “scene” in widely dimensional directions, while still grasping onto a thread that somehow kept the whole damn thing from unraveling. “What say you and all your friends step up to my friends in the ally tonight” rallies the marginalized in a way that you might think would set the course for the rest of the record, but the swift delineation into the Bemis interior with the songs that follow is a Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride through potent and colorful neurosis, paranoia, and imagery – some delightfully vivid (“Yellow Cat / Red Cat”), others notably perverse and unsettling (“Slowly, Through a Vector”). And while inescapable show tunes are eternally cheesy, there’s something extraordinarily theatrical permeating the album; every song feels written to be adapted for an ensemble choir, harmonizing alongside the young Jewish hero as he preens on during a number about Molly Connolly.
Joyce Manor On Being Lumped In With Defend Pop Punk
Joyce Manor did a really interesting interview with Noisey on the release of Never Hungover Again. Part of the interview focusses on the band being lumped in with the “Defend Pop Punk” music community during the release of their second album, and reactions to that. Read that part below after the jump.
POZ Discussion: Most Anticipated July Releases
YES, THIS. OH MY GOD THIS IS SO SO IMPORTANT.
Its a known fact that i also enjoy some “pop punk” bands ALOT please dont get me wrong but i feel like SO MANY bands also get lumped into this genre and they are not really very “pop punk” to begin with. Like they said to someone that is just getting into all of these bands and especially if they have toured together either once or a few times they might just put them all under the “pop punk” umbrella. For example i just did not understand people calling Seahaven “pop punk” and now with Reverie Lagoon out that has died down some but with the bands they were connected to with tours or the label they are on it made it easy it just lump them together. Its just interesting to see that its not just me and others that have noticed this but the bands as well. Its just important to represent a band in the way they should be because yes, there are people that wont listen to a band because of their label but will turn around and listen to something similar but doesnt have the label attatched to it so its ok, that goes with ANY genre of music. Just listen to what you want please! If it makes you happy, makes you dance or makes you feel something, listen!
