Movie of the Month: 'The Other F Word'

Growing up is inevitable. Like taxes, it is the only constant in life. Now, what happens when those that rebelled about growing older and rebelled against the system become adults themselves? From the punks to other rockers, the brilliant 2011 documentary The Other F Word, follows what life is like when the musicians who still hold onto their youth become fathers themselves. From Mark Hoppus of Blink 182, Fat Mike of NOFX, Flea, Ron Reyes of Black Flag, Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Jim Lindberg of Pennywise and a slew of others, these dads may not have been prepared for fatherhood but they are going to do whatever they can to make sure their child grows up in the best environment. Director Andrea Blaugrund Nevins tells their stories of how they grew up and plan on raising a new generation under their roof. A documentary not to be missed and one to fall in love with time over time.
