Take Back

I found these in a burned cd that I intend on throwing away so I'm posting these crappy photos on here.  Cobalt days in 2008


Limping Around Washington D.C

[draft I never posted]
I say limping because I twisted my ankle at meridian park and fell down a couple of stairs like a champ.

It is my third time here in Washington, D.C. I saw all the tourist stuff and I wanted to find more.

First thing I did was look for the discord house that was featured in the album cover salad days for minor threat. It's just outside of DC in Virginia. It was a nice walk through a suburban neighborhood.
I'm gonna be cheesy but it has been something I always wanted to see.

People recommended me vegan places and record stores. Checking out record stores is a great way to meet people and find out about any local shows. I went to Joint Custody records , crooked beats, and smash records. At joint custody I found out there was a website with shows posted. If you are ever out in DC just google punk hardcore shows in DC.

Check out the comic store right next to Joint Custody while you are at it.

Cute art

I'm kinda sad that I forgot who the artist is. But it was at the Brewery artwalk. I really admired her. Especially since the was one of the few POC who I had encountered during the walk's exhibits.


I miss the Knitting Factory (draft from 2012)

I still do (2015 me)

I'm still partially alive

Hey guys,
I went to a show yesterday out in Whittier. There is a new venue spot out there and hopefully it lasts for a while.
Here are the links to the bands I just saw.
It's been a while since I have gone to a show alone, but it is always nice to see familiar faces apart from the awkwardness of arriving alone.






Long Time No See

It's crazy how I started this when I was about 17-18. That was about 5-6 years ago.  I've stopped a few years ago because my priorities changed and I picked up photography more. (tumblr) . I still miss this section of my life and being so involved in a music subculture. I know soon enough I'll pick something up that will bring me back in.

Thank to those of you I met while I was active on suck my ovaries. I still have a lot of stuff on my hard drive that was never posted.

I'm not doing music reviews btw.


Excuse me Urban Outfitters..

Many of us have seen this design whether on t-shirts or people's skin. Most people know of the band Ceremony and this particular design that is connected to them.

Well Paint It Black face book posted a photo that was screen capped from the Urban Outfitter's store :

"Damn, now Ceremony's getting bootlegged by a major corporation too?"

What are you thoughts?


Shaming within an Idealistic Subculture as "hardcore"

It's incredible to see how far along this subculture has lasted into the modern era. What is incredibly grotesque is the derogatory terms that still persist. Women have constantly received a bad rep depending on where they step their foot to who they talk to in hardcore. Girls do it to girls. Boys do it to girls. When a truthful situation with actual evidence is shown, how is is plausible that the victim continue to be victimized?

If we take this out of the subculture it is still wrong. The fact that it is in a subculture as "punk/hardcore" that has redundantly screamed the words of equality and solidarity among each member is being spit in the face when people slut shame and blame women for being themselves.

When someone opens their home to a fellow band or fellow hardcore aficionado regardless of their gender, they must be respected equally. It is their property and it is THEIR HOME. The problem here is a fellow member of the hardcore subculture has opened her home and her wallet to the band Blind Justice, only to receive the news that a band member had invaded her personal items without consent. They also pee'd in her laundry [who does that? unless you hate them].

Unfortunately, the reaction of this situation is pelted questions of her being raped, derogatory words such as "slut", and negative words like "worthless". How it is logical to defend the band member who disrespected someone that opened their home and bully the victim through anonymous question on tumblr. It only proves that people in this subculture still view gender to have double standards in hardcore.

If I had painted nude portraits of myself and hid them away only for it to be stolen by people I invited to my home and hung in their surroundings I would feel violated. I decided not to share it. I decide who to share it with. This applies to everyone.

I could say so much more right now, but if you are against me - you disgust me and you are no member of the subculture. You would be the social climber in my eyes, not her.
