My in box gets clogged from people asking me to review or showcase bands’ great new release. A little overwhelmed quiet honestly. I should be flattered I know, and I am.. but I’m also just really bored too, I don’t know.. this punk pin collection seemed kind of different. So I thought, what the hell?

Yeah, it’s been a long stretch of nothing but work for me trying to get this project “Raw Travel” off the ground. I can’t fully explain how much work this is in today’s consolidated media environment in the U.S of A. I mean, at times, it feels virtually impossible to make a living as an independent producer in TV. NOTHING should be this hard, but it is, and many people endure much more just to survive, so I won’t whine. I’ve been blessed by people who believe in what we’re doing and it’s getting done (50+ cities and counting in the U.S. and internationally this fall) with support from people at those very same consolidated media companies.
Corporations are made up of people, remember. And people, unlike corporations, are good, bad and in between because you see, they are people not a faceless entity like a corporation. Get it? Now don’t get me wrong, there have been a few incompetents and disrespectful folks along the way, some grossly so. But for the most part, people have been fair, good and professional. I am thankful for that.
Kids Should Inspire Us All To Do Better
Now the real work begins. Producing a show that was worth all this madness. I mean, we still don’t have a sponsor so we’re independently financing this and that means pressure, strain, sleepless nights, etc.
But I don’t care because I know, feel, that there is something there. We need to show that without actually learning about other cultures, other people’s struggles, that we’ll never, ever, ever be the society that I think we all strive to be. Never.
The U.S. and other “developed” countries can not be walled off like some wealthy enclave while the rest of the world suffers. We can’t be financially tied together (and we all are whether we like it or not.. thanks Wall Street greed and unrestrained capitalism) and not be spiritually tied together too. When a factory collapses in Indonesia, we all suffer. After all, they were making our cheap $7 t-shirts, excuse me, this just in $3 t-shirts.
Back in the day, I mean like 300 years ago, not that far back when you think about the grand scheme of the planet, people could be left alone in their part of the world and live like “heathens” or civilized man, or whatever their particular society desired.
Today, not so much. The U.S. can’t long term continue to be a bastion of ignorant mass consumption, it’s citizens seeking one fleeting pleasure after another to make up for the void in our lives at having been on a hamster wheel for so long just to survive with all the things we’re daily told we need, while other countries “make us stuff”.
There are so many angry, unhappy people in the U.S. That is the first observation I made when I returned here late in 2011, after JUST 10 months or so living abroad. The culture shock is insane for such a short amount of time but I had it. After living abroad for JUST 10 MONTHS I felt everything about me changed. The ground had literally shifted beneath my feet.
I discovered that comfort does not equate happiness. And while it’s hard to be happy, if you are soaking wet, homeless and hungry… it’s also hard to find happiness when you THINK you have everything you should want yet you still crave more.
What’s the answer? I don’t know. I’m pretty F’d myself. But now I know it. Where as before I thought I was pretty damned evolved. I’m not cool, I’m not evolved, I’m not intelligent or strong or wise. I’m struggling.The more I travel the more I know how much I don’t know. I’m both gaining more knowledge and learning how much knowledge I don’t have at the same time. How ironic?
I want to do the right thing, but can’t quite fulfill what I think is my potential….I’m that guy who could, almost did but might not do it and that scares the shit out of me.
But here is another thing travel does. It takes the focus off of me for a while and it puts it on someone else and their situation. I see many people, less comfortable than I, and they are, quite often… for the most part, generally happy despite working 14-16 hour days at grueling task for little money.
I myself, when I travel, am less comfortable than I care for.. but you know what? I too am happier. Lack of privacy, proper sleep or riding along in an uncomfortable chicken bus for 8 hours straight bouncing along rough roads, hugging cliffs, literally taking risk with one’s own life, simply by taking a bus?! It sucks but strangely, it also makes me feel more alive… and happier.
I’m forever changed by travel and the reality is, I’ve done nothing compared to most hard core travelers or what I hope to do in the next 10-20 years. I haven’t been to the nether reaches of Africa or Asia (yet). I’ve done precious little actual volunteering and am frustrated at the lack of clarity and potential to actually DO something worthwhile to help. Helping should be so easy right? So many people need so much.
It’s not. Helping is hard. But I’m committed to finding a way to doing it and not only doing it but yelling about it while I do it. Not to brag. I’m thankfully (one of the only good things about getting older I guess), well over that. I don’t need recognition anymore. In fact, I prefer not to have it. Really, truly do not. I’m not just saying it. What a great, freeing feeling that is.

But if we are to end poverty, to make a difference in the world, then OTHERS have to see how it can change their lives too, so if I do something good, I will yell and challenge others to do the same. My inspiration came from a book entitled “The End of Poverty” and one of it’s messages is clear, to end poverty, we have to stop being so damned polite when we do something for others. Brag if you will, until it becomes the norm to help others and abnormal to be selfish.
I’m not Mother Teresa. At best, we’ll be able to touch on the voluntourism opportunities from other countries in Raw Travel. At best.
That is frustrating because I want to do more but to do more without the proper context or knowledge will sound preachy, shrill and silly. So the show will reflect my learning curve and maybe that is a blessing in disguise.
Often I think , maybe I’m just not meant to be a communicator… and that is why things are so hard. Maybe I’m really just not that good at what I am trying to do.
Yeah, I think about that. There is some truth there. Let’s face the facts. If I were that good, I’d be making ground breaking documentary films that make you cry and I’d be accepting awards and people would be begging me to come to their college or university or whatever to talk about my “art”.
But then I look and see what IS on TV and after I puke, I think shit man, I have to do something better than that swill. The shows are so shallow and, not surprisingly, the people who produce and greenlight them (I’ve met enough of them to judge) are in an insular world that rewards one thing and one thing only, success.
Their smarmy, dress well and largely alike and move in packs and often wear these smart, little frameless glasses of an intellectual or a librarian that is the trendy look these days. They have no clue and that is probably why they were drawn to TV as a profession in the first place. That’s OK only because I know what it’s like to have no clue, but now that I have some semblance of a clue, that just is not acceptable to me anymore. Producing TV carries a responsibility, if only to one’s self, whether it’s acknowledged or not.
I mean who wants to be on their deathbed thinking about what a great gift to mankind they made with “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” or “Here Comes Honey BooBoo” or “Alaska State Troopers” Or “Flip This Hotel” or bla, bla, bla? But they’re thinking the only other alternative is career suicide. They are wrong of course.
So, here it comes.. Raw Travel , travel show that attempts to have a conscience. We strive to be authentic (really real, not reality show real), respectful and to prick people’s curiosity and how they see the world. I know people, especially Americans, but all of us, are looking for more. I know because I believe that is where the anger, frustration and sadness is coming from. The search for more that is as old as mankind itself. Or at least when mankind didn’t have other worries like mere survival on his/her hands.
An ADORABLE, little 12 year old girl committed suicide in NYC recently. I read about it and wept. Still do when I think about it. She had been cyber-bullied and beaten up by other kids and it was posted on You Tube for the world to see. The parents of those teens must be so proud now.
In Memory of Gabriela Molina
Why should an adorable girl like that, or any kid for that matter at that age ever hang themselves? It happens in the Badlands at the Lakota reservation here in the U.S. all the time. Which also happens to be the most poverty stricken area in the U.S., perhaps disproving my earlier point (comfort does not equal happiness).
Does this happen all over the world? I didn’t know this little girl or her family, but I’d like to dedicate an episode of Raw Travel to her if I can. I’m sorry I never met her, especially in her time of need. One kind word, or even a smile, from even a stranger, might have changed her fate. My heart aches.
Misery.. it’s as old as the world. And hard as it seems to comprehend, the world is probably the best it’s ever been with less wars, less atrocities, less hunger than ever before in the history of mankind. But now, we know (or should) know more the misery our brothers and sisters are going through thanks to technology.. that double edged sword of good and evil (as all things are).
And until we at least try to alleviate some of the misery of our fellow man, do any of us ever have a shot of seeing fulfillment and self actualization? Depressed yet? Maybe a little Angry? Maybe a lot angry? Me too.
So what’s the point of this rambling missive? There is none. It is what it is. Except to say I’m finally digging out the old passport, putting my shit in storage (what little shit I have left) and going down to Mexico and Central America for 8 weeks to tape Raw Travel. I’ll be posting videos, write ups and pics of punk, ska, reggae, bands and the underground scene from our travels along the way.
First stop, El Chopo in Mexico City in mid June.
Now that I’ve thoroughly depressed you, maybe I can make up for it with some real, angry, punk music. As far as I’m concerned the perfect tonic for a world not GONE mad , but STILL mad…. and maybe, just maybe actually getting better. I think it really is. And travel, the healing power of travel, is one of the reasons why.
Until we can get there.. enjoy some music from El Chopo.. the punk underground hood of Mexico City. See you soon amigos.
“RAW TRAVEL” FIRM GO TO DEBUT IN BROADCAST SYNDICATION FOR FALL 2013 - AIM TV Announces Key Distribution Agreements in NYC, Chicago, San Francisco & More -
LOS ANGELES, CA- April 24th, 2013 – AIM Tell-A-Vision® Group (AIM TV) announced today that their latest production “Raw Travel®” is a “firm go” to debut in syndication via broadcast stations nationwide in early October 2013 and has secured distribution agreements in 40 top markets representing over 50% of U.S. TV Homes.
Leading the way are the Fox owned stations in New York with WNYW (Fox) / WWOR (MNTV) & Chicago with WFLD (Fox) / WPWR (MNTV). Additional top markets include the Cox owned station KTVU (Fox) in San Francisco, Hearst station WCVB (ABC) in Boston and NBC-Universals’ KXAS (NBC) in Dallas. Other key affiliate groups include Sinclair, Raycom, Lin Broadcasting, Local TV, Nexstar, CBS, Belo, Journal and more. The show is projected to be in 50+ markets representing over 60% of U.S. TV Households by launch.
Raw Travel is a first for broadcast syndication, an adventure travel & lifestyle series showcasing the rapidly growing wave of socially and environmentally aware, independent travel. The series weaves together themes of eco-tourism, volun-tourism (giving back) with underground music and authentic culture in a way unique to television. The inspiration for the series occurred when AIM TV Founder Robert G. Rose traveled abroad and discovered a growing number of socially conscious travelers who were striving for more authentic and rewarding experiences.
The ½ hour weekly series is Executive Produced and hosted by Rose, an experienced Executive Producer who has overseen over 300 episodes of 1st run programming and traveled to 30+ countries. For Raw Travel’s initial 9 episodes Rose collaborated with key production members from his previous creations under the “American Latino Syndication” banner which he sold to Los Angeles based LATV in 2008.
Rose & crew traveled to destinations which offered unique opportunities for authentic cultural, environmentally sustainable, socially aware and life changing experiences. True to the title, the program illustrates the raw and, sometimes unglamorous reality of independent travel simultaneously showcasing how this type of travel is not only more affordable, but can spur personal growth and fulfillment.
“Raw Travel offers broadcasters an opportunity to counterprogram the glut of derivative “reality” programming plaguing cable and ignoring authentic travel, which is extremely popular internationally. With U.S. passport possession and travel/tourism spending at all-time highs, local stations realize the time is now for this genre in the U.S. and broadcast TV offers the biggest potential audience for us to tell our story,” Rose says. “Raw Travel aspires to combine the poetic with the practical, not only inspiring people to travel but giving them the tools to do so and enhance their own lives. We’ll also help stations tap into a double digit growth, travel/tourism advertising category that is largely passing them by,” Rose continues.
AIM TV is producing 22 episodes for Season 1, including key Latin American & North American destinations. The site www.RawTravelDistribution.com features information for stations including show trailer, episode summaries, etc. while www.RawTravel.tv will undergo a facelift that, by launch, will allow fans to interact with producers, view bonus clips, get travel tips and help shape the direction for future episodes.

HOLLYWOOD: The big Orgy concert at Whiskey A Go Go was scheduled for Monday night. I had to fly out Tuesday morning at some ungodly hour. What to do? Go see my boys (AKA and formerly “The Russian Interns”) open up for them and then go home. Tickets were $20 and I’d only get to see the opening act? Well, my friends, that is what friends are for and I wanted to show some love to my buddies from Moscow, Degrees of Freedom.
Before Doors Open On Famous Sunset Strip
But this ain’t about what a great and selfless guy I am (I am of course), it’s about how I, a non fan of “nu-metal” “death metal” or any kind of “metal” other than silver and gold and maybe a little platinum or nickel every now and then, dug the DOF show.. and lest you think I’m playing favorites (shame on you thinking I’d do such a thing), everyone else seemed to enjoy the show even more (which makes sense considering they were there to see some metal). Once the black attired but solidly polite and behaved crowd realized that 3 of the 5 band members were from Moscow, things were like “ohhhhh, ahhhhhh” how “exotic” and became much more enthusiastic.
But when the guys (2 Russian dudes, a Russian girl and 2 Latinos presumably from Los Angeles) played their tribute to recently passed Def Tones former bassist, Chi Cheng, with really good cover of a Def Tones (from, ironically, Sacramento.. the very city I had to wake up at the crack of dawn to fly to) song that even I recognized but still can’t name, well the crowd really erupted and the rest of the night, DOF had these goth and metal heads (and me included) in the palm of their hard working hands.
Moscow Musical Couple
It was my 1st time at Whiskey A Go Go so little did I know I could have brought the good camera gear (but didn’t, so you get the shitty phone pics, sorry), but when I tried a little video, was shut down pretty promptly (but quiet courteously I might add) by the bouncer. But I did get off a few seconds before he shut me down, so you can enjoy the clip below.
I don’t know how the Orgy show was as I elected to get home in an attempt to get some sleep before my trip to Sac town. Yes, I know I’m old, but at least I didn’t complain about how “darned tootin loud these whippersnapper’s concerts are these days”. I’m not there yet. I’m on my way, but not yet.
Raw Travel... the indie show for indie travelers, launches this October in the U.S. We’re independent and want to remain that way.. but independence comes with a price. We must finance our own stuff. What this means is we are borderline broke all the time as money heads one direction and one direction only… OUT and AWAY (at least at the beginning) That’s not such a bad thing always. It enforces discipline and requires creativity to approach challenges and situations.
In this case, our music budget is non existent. I hate canned, library music. I also was inspired to produce “Raw Travel” in part because of the plethora of clueless shows on the air showcasing a destination like Brazil with a soundtrack of salsa music, displaying the producers’ ignorance of the very culture they were attempting to enlighten upon others. I vowed from Day 1 any show I produced would NEVER do that.
Luckily, we already invested in a pretty extensive library of original music when we first started producing the show, but we’d like to add to it.
Now, I know this is a punk blog (hence the name “Punk Outlaw”) and thus punks worldwide are reading this, but please punks, understand, while I love punk music and the punk aesthetic and philosophy will be on full display throughout the show… that is not the type of music we are looking for at this time. That musical need will mostly be filled by punk, ska, reggae, rockabilly, psychobilly and yes, even hip hop (non commercial, socially conscious of course) or any other type of music that fits the show’s independent thinker, citizen of the world theme, when we feature bands & artists from the different destinations we visit.
What we specifically are in need of now is more of a “world music” or “ambient” vibe. Artists that are weaving some of their local flavor into their music and can create tracks that reflect a particular destination or mood. Ideally, we don’t want vocals, only musical tracks (the music generally will be played underneath voice over / narration).
What does the artists get out of this?
1) Publishing – If you are a member of a publishing rights organization (ASCAP or BMI here in the U.S.) depending on how big and successful the show is (how many markets, how long it airs, etc.) you will get royalties over time from the TV channels who pay the rights organizations every time your music is played. If you don’t have a publishing agreement we may be able to set you up through Punk Outlaw Publishing.
2) Exposure – The thing everybody is clamoring for when they fill my inbox with free music tracks, videos, pitches for stories etc. for this small but dedicated blog. Imagine Punk Outlaw being about a thousand or more times more powerful and you get the picture of the exposure a hit TV show can bring. We want to turn the world on to talented, independent musicians, that is why we began Punk Outlaw Records (certainly not for the $). This is another way to turn people on to talented artists.
If we like your music and choose to use it in the show, we’ll be featuring the artists from the show on our soon to be relaunched website at www.RawTravel.tv on a special Raw Travel Music page. That page will be aggressively promoted on the show and will feature the artists bios, links to artists web pages (facebook, bandcamp, etc.) and can link to any music you may have for sell. You will also get a credit in the show of course.
Down the road, our goal is to put together a collection of the best music used for “Raw Travel” and offer it as a compilation CD or digital release and promote it on TV.
Everything is on a case by case basis at this stage and determined on our need and the fit of your music with the show.
Free music for a TV show in exchange for royalties & exposure ? It’s not for every artist and every artist is not a fit for the show.
But if you think you are a fit, then leave a comment for me with your email and we can get started with the process of evaluating your music and get you details about the technical aspects, etc.
Our destinations (in addition to the ones already produced) for Season 1 are North & Central America including the following Mexico (Mexico City & Yucatan), Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Belize and in the U.S. Oregon, Utah, New Mexico & Louisiana.
Music indigenous to these regions are our highest priority at the moment. Bands in these destinations feel free to hit me up for potential coverage as well as we begin our travels in June/July.
Season 2 is Southeast Asia & Eastern Europe. Season 3.. we’ll we haven’t really planned that far ahead yet but I’m feeling Africa, Turkey & Parts of Russia plus Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan including all of the “…stans”.
If you want to find out more about Raw Travel, be sure and like us on our facebook pageand follow us on twitter and stay tuned. It’s going to be a wild and ridiculously fun ride. Actually… it already is.
Yeah, I’m swamped but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking of you. I just don’t feel like writing after 12 hours days and traveling like crazy. In fact, I can’t even sleep, much less write. But I can read and look at pics (it helps me sleep), so if you’re suffering from insomnia like me these days, check the following out:
1) Great Article on the state of the music biz these days
It’s called “Break Even.. Or Die Trying” by in the Record Collector News MagazineI happened to pick up the other day at the used bookstore in Santa Monica (how is that that they will sell me anything but they won’t even buy back books that I bought from there in the first place for a fraction of the original price I paid?). I don’t get it. But that is another post for another time. This article was so spot on, I had to share it with you guys. Check it out HERE
2) Gotta Love LA
When your book-keeper is named Nicole the Bookie (not my actual bookie, I don’t gamble… though I will throw a casino link in these blogs every now and then for the $150-200 they throw me… so little innocent kiddies, beware) and digs punk rock then you know your in a good punk rock town. She was kind enough to shoot over some pics from the recent Bad Religion/Vandals show the other night which I, of course, completely missed due to my ridiculous schedule.
Enjoy some of Nicole’s pics below. Thanks Nicole!
3) DMTR gets a new look
And Finally, our buddies from Quito, Ecuador, DMTRhave got themselves a new logo. I dig it. Do you?
So I’m on the road in the great Northeast where snow is causing havoc and causing me to the reconsider my wardrobe. Luckily, by the time I arrived to Philadelphia rain had dissipated the snow and it was mid 40s. Now I’m heading to Boston and I have a feeling I won’t be so lucky. That place got pounded.
I don’t know much about Philadelphia, previously having only visited for the day, typically taking a train or renting a car and driving from NYC. But this time, I stayed overnight in downtown Philadelphia near Chinatown and got a better feel for the U.S.’s 4th largest city.
Philadelphia, as you might expect of a historic American city, has a long and historic history with punk rock and hardcore. You can read more about that HERE.
But yesterday, while perusing their weekly Philadelphia City PaperI noticed front and center on the cover was a punk band Pissed Jeans. Now when is the last time your free weekly featured a punk band on the cover? I don’t know much about Pissed Jeans other than what I read and then researched at their label “Sub Pop Records” here.
But what I read and heard, I liked and thought you might like it too.
Something special was happening in my hometown of Medellín, Columbia, during this year. Three big blues artists visited the town for the first time and shared with us their music and experiences, making us feel like we were in the Mississippi Delta, or maybe rolling down a long road.
On May 17, the legendary Bill Homan, professionally known as Watermelon Slim, who has been linked to several artists such as John Lee hooker, Robert Cray and Joe McDonald, reached Medellín. Before the show he was talking with us about his slide technique in a private guitar class.
The show was just amazing. It was a gig never seen before in this city. That was the first time we listened to the slide guitar played by a master. In fact, that was the first time we saw a blues legend in action. Watermelon made us feel like we were old friends, he made us feel like family.

Black Punk Outlaw Hats are sooooo 2011. Just in time for spring 2013 are the lovely excrement colored Punk Outlaw hats and we just got a whole sh*&load of them.
Don’t let the pic fool ya.. the hat is brown.. UPS/Ugly brown.
Yes, I channeled my college summer job as a UPS employee in the sorting & loading dock (one of the top 5 hardest jobs I ever had, I kid you not… #1? Roofing.. in July.. in the south.. with no water and no training) and ordered some brown Punk Outlaw hats.
I know you want one. Well, send us $10 and we’ll send you one out in the mail today. No shipping, no nothing. I don’t care where you live, if you want one, we’ll send you one ’til they are all gone. Just shoot me an email or comment here and tell me where you want that hat sent.
Wear it with a brown Dickey’s button shirt and utility pants and pretty soon people will be asking you take their packages or start asking you mundane questions about shipping & handling
This is the color under good light.. See brown, God-awful ugly, brown.
2012 saw some kick ass new releases by some of my favorite bands like Pennywise. Their new CD “All or Nothing” is a 20 song strong CD that simply inspires and gives strength. I’ve had several months of listening now and can honestly say I’ve never heard such a solid string of encouraging, “we have the power and we will change things”kick ass songs. This might be my favorite CD of all time for this band. Favorite tunes include “Waste Another Day”, “Let Us Hear Your Voice” and “X-Generation” but to be honest, you’d be hard pressed to find a bad song in the bunch. The whole CD is worth a listen.
If you’re a big Green Day fan and even if like me, you are not, then I’m sure you know they released their three release set, “Uno”, “Dos” & “Tres” in late 2012. I haven’t heard all 3 completely but my favorite single off the sets are so far “Let Yourself Go” from Uno . In my opinion, Uno at least is a better effort than Green Day’s had in a while, (I think the songs are better than “Know Your Enemy”). Looking forward to Dos & Tres in 2013 to see if they can keep it going.
Speaking of punk legends, Bad Religion’s “True North” is coming out later this month on January 22nd and available now by pre-order. Like Pennywise, I’ve seen these guys a few times in concert and I’ll definitely be listening to that and reporting back to you.
THE NEW GUYS:
Now we don’t have a specialty, but if we did, it would be punk music from around the world from bands that may or may not be well known outside of their home country.
MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Samati
Here is a female fronted rock band that reached out to us from Moscow, Russia called Samati. Samati fuses punk with some old fashioned rock n roll and I really dig a couple of their tracks, especially tracks #1 “Louder” (below) and #2 “Who You Are” which have a little more aggressive punk sound to them.
Give Samati’s new CD a free listen HERE and let me know your favorite track.
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA – PaniKo, SataniKo
Now if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I know there is a massive punk and hardcore scene down in South America and in particular in Colombia. In all my travels to Colombia, I can’t recall having met the girls and guys from PaniKo, SataniKo but I gave their tunes a listen on Sound Cloud and I have to say I’m indeed impressed. They have a nice little cover from the Misfits’ “Hollywood Babylon” but their originals are really what impressed me with a little psychobilly influence in there somewhere.
Check them out and see what you think about these guys from Bogota.
PITTSBURGH, CALIFORNIA - Malicious Dismemberment
Now for all you hardcore fans, we’re bringing back to the state wherefore I type this little entry from tonight, California, where punk is still alive and well and bands like “Social Distortion” can sell out the House of Blues for weeks at a time. I don’t know much more than you about Malicious Dismemberment, but you gotta love the sound of the name and if you’re into hardcore punk, the sound of the music. They have about as aggressive a sound as I’ve heard in a while in the normally mellow, melodious West Coast. Give a listen and let me know what you think.
Don’t forget to check out our sister site for punk music from around the world. We’re doing a little update to the site but by the end of the month, everything should be up to date and rolling. In 2013, we’ll have new music out from Russia as well as a psychobilly compilation if things go as planned, plus whatever other surprises may come our way.
Well there you have it.. new music to get your 2013 kicked off just right. Thanks for tuning in to us during 2012 as we traveled the globe in search of some fresh punk sounds for you and reporting that from South America to Southeast Asia (getting there soon, I promise) to Eastern Europe to NYC, California, Florida and all points in between, punk is very much alive.
We’ll leave you with a video of Malicous Dismemberment that they have featured on their band page. Pretty cool. Wishing you a very punked out 2013.
