This post gave me a brain aneurysm, this could've been a only line response but not only you quoted multiple things that are not related you also misquoted at the end making it look like it was your own writing when you were actually still quoting.
If i isekaied you and gave you the keys to one of those ''places" you yearn for, you would've been insta demonized making a bloated post like this, It takes serious effort or severe brain damage to make a post this bad, what the fuck.
Now on point:
>If they wanted to keep the whole 'punk' thing under wraps so that no-one ruined it, why would they even be doing a documentary in the first place?
For the scene? For people in the punk scene in europe, japan, south america and all kinds of places to get an understanding of the unique california punk scene? For them to know about the scene bands they like are a part of?
This was before the internet as we know, you see, those were in vhs tapes and were passed/sold around in shows, skateparks and scene hang out places, they weren't going to a golf club or random bars and passing them around, if you were a church going guy in California 1982 you would've probably never even saw anything related to of punk rock outside of maybe some thugs in a tv show, maybe some homeless on the street, but you were definitely not privy to the inside details of the scene or cared about it even, if you saw that vhs in a blockbuster why the fuck would you buy it over hundreds of movies and random shit? Why the fuck would you even want to see it in the first place?
I know its hard for you to understand that people actually did things for the sake of being cool or being part of something cool, developing a culture and having fun creating their own things instead of begging others and browsing imageboards, but thats how things get made, not just punk rock, but pretty much everything else.
Some guys in the 1920s thought it would be cool to go really fast on their cars, people thought they were crazy daredevils, fast forward some years we got nascar. If you want something that is not yours, you have to make it yourself not beg for it, especially not with strangers on the internet.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
