Punk Rock Historian and Consultant
I am wearing my shirt today to support The Descendents as a punk band.
“Welcome to Der Weinerschnitzel
May I take your order please?”
Yeah, I want:
Two large cokes, two large fries
Chili-cheese dog, large Dr. Pepper
Super deluxe with cheese and tomato
You want Bill sperm with that?
A cross section or motif of the underbelly of an overall group or groups of people who seem to behold Donald Trump as a great leader.
To see them wake up and testify against him was amazing to witness. One guy a family-oriented person a responsible citizen and one a creative artist. Both pulled into this absurdity is very disturbing to my sensibilities.
They describe stepping back and then observing what it really is they were supporting and promoting. Their followers denying the holocaust or another noting that all the lawful cases of Donald’s were thrown out of our courts. The BIG LIE is here to be torn down … we now see the man behind the curtain.
“Who was the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz?
One of the iconic characters in the film is the Wizard himself, the Man Behind the Curtain. Dorothy was in need of a champion, someone who had the power to help her get to her home. Toto pulls back the curtain revealing the Wizard to be a fraud, all smoke and mirrors and no real power.”

Milo Aukerman was on a cover of Flipside Fanzine #37. We thought they were so crazy good when they first hit the punk scene. Der Weinerschnitzel defined a “amber moment” in punk rock history. I never forget the first time I played it hot off the press.
We all did grow old and now we must address this issue now. I am wearing my shirt today to support The Descendents as a punk band that is not associated with the ideocracy of these stupid assholes and deplorable and lost persons who supported or were at the United States Capitol attack. They are our human doppelganger staring us right in the face.
What will it be like when i get old
Will I still hop on my bike
And ride around town
Will I still want to be someone
And not just sit around
I don’t want to be like the other adults
Cause they’ve already died
Cool and condescending, fossilized
Will I be rich will i be poor
Will i still sleep on the floor
In July 2016, Aukerman announced he would be leaving his scientific career to pursue the Descendents full-time, citing burnout with biochemistry and getting laid off from DuPont.
