The Ramones matter musically, creatively, historically, politically, culturally and personally. "Ramones Theory" is inspired by the seminal punk band's mission and ministry, their DIY ethics, values, style, and wit. Their great spirit of inclusion and delightfully twisted NYC sensibility have impacted generations of fans and musical trends. Look here for announcements, events, and ideas related demonstrating "Why the Ramones Matter."
"Hail Atlantis: A Sandy Survivor's Tale"
In 2012, Super Storm Sandy destroyed my house, my car, my community and battered my immune system. On the one year anniversary, I published "Hail Atlantis: A Sandy Survivor's Tale." In time, my home was rebuilt, I got a new car, regained my health and today I teach "Coastal Community Studies" in the SUNY system. This essay is an ode to the power of faith, community and the water people of the world.
