Greenpoint is old school, yo
The Other Side of the Moon
I am 1/3 of the way through The Feminists and it is possibly the best book I have ever read, except for a few that don’t count: Slash’s autobiography (non-fiction), Louis Althusser’s memoir (French), and Mrs. Ballard’s Parrots (mostly pictures).
I really just wanted to post this photo. I used to read a lot of GNR fan fic, which I tried to call “Slash/slash” but it never caught on.
Handsome Tomas, at the very last Slug show. There are some pics of me from this show too, in which I am wearing a jacket and necklace that I still wear. What is wrong with me???
I saw Tomas at EMP two years ago and he is as dapper as ever, a DJ in San Francisco. I told him how he was part of a feminist awakening for me and Darby. We used to go to shows and our guy musician friends would be like, “Hi, yeah, we’re in the studio, and then we will tour and then this thing happened and this and this,” and we would politely listen. Tomas was the only one who EVER said, “Hey, the last issue of Ben is Dead was great!” Or “What’s the next issue?”
Grrr it makes me mad even now to think that they acted like their art was so much more important than ours. Actually a lot of them still do this! I was talking with another 90s punk-scene survivor about this–she calls it becoming the housewife to the community which I think is brilliant. Anyway, how cute is Tomas? Everyone had a crush on him.
