Network Awesome, Women of Punk

siouxsie1The video in my recent post: Siouxsie and the Banshees home-made documentary is curated by Network Awesome, and I like their philosophy:

Broadcast TV has changed for the worse and isn’t getting any better – we offer something different. Network Awesome mines the resources of YouTube to bring you treasures vast and plentiful, packaged and gift-wrapped in an easier-to-watch format.  Unlike regular TV, this will not melt your brain. Instead, it causes you to re-think what TV can and should offer you.

They have a great collection called Women Of Punk.
