This page is what I figure out to be my little thoughts on what has come to be known as punk rock.
It's something that is a huge part of my life,from the first glimpses of it in elemenatry school to diving into it in High School,all the way to being an adult and trying to find out how punk rock relates to everyhting now.I don't think it's something to grow out of or just a passing phase for amny of us,I also acknowledge that we must grow with all experiences and "punk"can grow with us as well.
I still consider myself a member of this "community" of punk.How do I define punk,I don't know,I don't listen to punk 24/7,look very punk,act "anti-authoritarian"or hold all those views.I guess its all about living your life as you feel comfortable with it.I'm not a staunch anti-capitalist but I also place many things above money in my values system.
I suppose for now ,until I get a treatise on punk rock or whatever I will use THIS page as some sort of dedication to cool punk stuff...
Martin has a new band(I forgot the name)which is supposedly awesome queercore.
