conservative punk?
that's right, it's not an oxymoron. i have always thought that alot of modern alternative music went pretty much hand in hand with right-wing politics, despite the fact that mtv et al. is so hardline left, politically. the spirit of individualism and power of working for yourself (because nobody else is going to) is one of the basline tenents of both. meanwhile, there is a group called punkvoter who belong in the cellars of the democrat underground, and claim to represent the feelings of punk artists and listeners. i was starting to think that i'm the only person who both votes republican and shops in hot topic, but it turns out the lead singer from the misfits along with some other punk artists have started a website called conservative punk, which is still young but is important in showing folks that not all their band geek role-models are pawns for george soros. i guess we're still a minority, but if you're a conservative that feels more at home at a ramones tribute with your doc martens than in the right-wing mainstays of a young republican sweater-vest club or country bar, you aren't alone.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
