think for yourself

i wanted to do a brief eulogy of johnny of my own, personal thoughts and such, but there isn't much coming to me that hasn't allready been said.

live free, enjoy your life. johnny was not only a punk icon, but seemed to be a genuinely good person as well, just happy doing his thing and letting others do theirs, and helping people when he can.

sortof related because i've been in more of a punk phase than usual lately, i've also been meaning to re-post a link and direct folks to conservativepunk.com. punk rock is all about thinking for yourself, don't buy the propaganda. reciting crap learned at punkvoter.com does not make you cool, it makes you sheep. of course, if you get both sides and still disagree with me, great. come back and we'll have an argument, it'll be fun. but if you hate bush because the guy from nofx hates bush, guess what that makes you? poser, no matter where you buy your clothes or what color your hair is.



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.
