Under the big black sun

Under an offensively bright sky that stretches from the cess pool of Los Angeles to the dirty streets of Long Beach and South Bay. We live and die for our crews and views. Some will tell you punk died or went away. We’re still fucking here! Damaged we ride our skateboards through cracked streets sweating out the toxins the city feeds us through osmosis. We really come out in the dark hours hangin in alleyways and street corners. Patches flown like gang colors let us know Who’s on our side and who to watch out for. We never walk alone. Under this black sun of so cal death we live!

An Open Letter to Punk Rock

Dear punk rock scene,

What in the actual fuck? I thought you believed in change and freedom. Yet when I post about the plight of Leonard Peltier or Mumia Abu Jamal (men you eductated me on) the engagement is little to none. When I make complaints about Nazis, racists and other such parasites hanging off of you, you only get mildly angry. I know we’ve lost so many and things haven’t been the same since Joe died, but we we’re fueled and angry during Bush and damned of we didn’t fight that. But you fell strangely silent during Obama. I shook you, waves smelling salts and even slapped you screaming “this is not the right change! It’s actually getting worse!” Parts of you got the idea, but most of you eas either patting the anointed leader on his delicate ass or simply comatose. Now we have literally the worst administration of your 40 plus year life and I’m waiting to see a bigger reaction. Maybe you’re getting ready for this fight since you got out of shape in the last 8 years. Maybe you really are dead and leftnus believers behind. It took me awhole to find thesenwords as I’ve been quite apoplectic. I hope this letter finds you and serves as an epi pen to get your ass of the trash covered floor. Shit is getting so sideways that you’ll look back on Reagan with fondness. So wash off the money shot you took from the DNC and realize that these public serpents are the problem as are the close minded parasites who hang around you.

Sincerely,

Maty Almost 

Morning after in America 

So on Tuesday 08NOV2016 this country elected Donald Trump as president. A man who is a caricature of every negative statement about America, white males and the Republican party. Not that Hilary was a good option. It was Lizard Queen versus the Great White Nope. The options were pure shit and people couldn’t stomach the idea of another Clintonoid after millennials went in droves to third parties. There is a positive about these results. The underground has been massively complacent over the past 8 years. This should shake everyone awake much like G.W. and the last Clintonoid did. I am looking forward to punk rock being amazing and prolific again. We need to have our hearts and minds open as we move forward through the cultural wasteland. Latinos and Muslims are validly scared of the growing white nationalist movement and anti-racist whites that proudly display our stance are scared of being caught in the cross fire from both sides. It’s time for the underground to March and really stoke the flames that provide change. Punx In Solidarity! Nazi Punks Fuck Off!
