    10cc, Neofascism? Village People, Violence? Julio Iglesias, Neofascism? Were they listening to the same bands I was hearing?

    I came across a real blast from my past recently, and I can’t believe now that I ever wrote it:

    Sinking the Bismarck, 2011

    I don’t even remember most of the things about which I was upset back then, and now Quinn and I have a wonderful friendship. I now call him mein Pfarrer (“my Pastor” in German). Of course, I now understand a lot of things that I didn’t know then.
