Sound of Metal Movie

Just finished watching the movie Sound of Metal. It was a great film and just found out that it was nominated for best picture back in 2021.

If you watch the film, Ruben the main character was wearing a Youth of Today hoodie several times throughout the movie. It was revealed that he was recovering addict. 4 years drug-free he said.

For the uninitiated, Youth of Today is a hardline vegan straight-edge (refrain from drugs and alcohol movement) band. I am not much of a fan of the band but their frontman Ray Cappo is one of the huge influences that made me quit drinking and smoking.

No more.
