This past week I happened to watch the movie 'Whip It' in theaters. I am still a bit unclear as to how I came about watching a movie for teenagers with 3 other adults, but nevertheless, it happened.

It has sparked a love for a new genre that I'm not sure what to name. But I've provided some samples of three bands that I think exemplify it. Listen it these clips and let me know what you think.

(Again, what the heck kind of music video IS this?! But hey, the music is good.)
Today I am a polar bear.
