New Punk Rope Pin Is Here

For me, pins have been synonymous with rock and roll since I was a kid. In fact, I collect rock and roll pins. One of my favorites carries the slogan: "If it ain't STIFF, it ain't worth a f*ck." In this case, "Stiff" refers to Stiff Records, the now defunct label. I hope our new [...]

Looking Back at 2016

Looking Back Tim's mom at the Punk Rope Games2016 was a rough year for me. I lost my mom (at left with my dad and my nephew's fiancé, Rebecca) on December 15. Enough said. But mom got to see her first Punk Rope Games on October 1 and that's a memory I'll cherish forever. Here, [...]
