I have lost the will to live 


The famous New York City punk outpost CBGB & OMFUG, where Ramones, Patti Smith, Television, Talking Heads and many others cut their teeth and sullied its notoriously disgusting bathroom, closed in 2006. But now it will get a second life, nearly a decade later as … an airport restaurant.

    I had been there in the 80s and 90s. Before it closed it already had turned into a parody of itself. They were trying to be a punk Hard Rock Cafe. Everything cool new and edgy gets absorbed into the mainstream, commercialized and eventually kitsch.
