Thomas is in Germany this week, Drew's in a state of sports-despair, and I'm in Arizona. That doesn't mean we don't have an episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast for you though. This week's podcast was recorded directly after our episode last week, and Thomas had to go pack for his trip, so it's just Drew and I. We don't have a whole lot of follow-up because we hadn't even aired the last episode when we were recording this one. We touched on two main topics this week: When someone recommends a band to us, how do we dive into their catalog? Newest release first? Oldest? Their most popular? If a band has a big catalog, is it a deterrent from trying to get into the band? After that we spend a...

Ray Waddell, writing for Billboard, on how the dropping gas prices across the country have helped touring artists.
The cost of fuel has been dropping since June of 2014, and by Jan. 12 had reached a five-year low -- which is great news for the touring industry. Based on U.S. Dept. of Energy averages, diesel fuel was running around $3.91 per gallon a year ago, and is currently about $3.13 on a national average. At that rate, an arena tour with 10 trucks and four buses averaging five miles per gallon is saving as much as $22,000 over 30 tour dates and 10,000 miles. Extrapolate that into the summer months, when more than 1,000 buses and 10 times that many touring trucks are on the road,...

Killer Mike wrote an op-ed about Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy over at Okayplayer.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Revolutionary, simple and plain. He did not get to live a regular life and have an 86th Bornday. He died a murder victim because he had the audacity to challenge a war machine bent on keeping people impoverished and men and woman dying for an illegal war. Martin was more than a speech-giving, marching, de-segregationist. He was a human being that dared to call out the hypocrisy of asking young people to refrain from violent protest on the one hand, while on the other allowing them to be cogs in a war machine that was making Vietnam a hell on earth for natives of that...
