Fell asleep after enjoying the Crass documentary There Is No Authority But Yourself last night. 2:48 pm and pissing off the neighbours with Bullshit Detector compilations. I don't know how I'll resist the urge to spend my first paycheck on new speakers, turntable, and stack of punk 7" haha, at least London is the place to buy 'em. Oi!
Got to get to Dial House in Essex, would be a pleasure and privilege to contribute as a creative person, or participate in something worthwhile. For once I'd be in the company of comparatively-minded people and revolutionaries, having intellectually stimulating discussions, rather than among small talking wankers!
Just like Gee and Penny, I have always had visions involving building or establishing an anarchist-pacifist intentional community with open door, open heart policy in the English countryside, for Vegan artists and musicians to reside, where all types of artistic collaborations and social cohesiveness is encouraged. I have discussed this concept over the years with people but they're sadly afraid of taking that first step to live a beautiful and largely self-sufficient life of plants, pretty birds, and punk.
Hopefully in time, I'll finally meet the right collective of compassionate and conscious people who dare to be less talk, more action, rather than complaining about their daily lives while half-heartedly raising concerns for animal and environmental issues from the comfort of their old velour armchairs because realistically, this wouldn't be a one-woman workload. If there's an aspect of my personality that people are quick to realise, it's that I don't mince words– and no, it's not because I'm Vegan, you shit stirrers, haha!
Before anyone writes to me about it, the song is Anthrax - All The Wars. You'll hear more ripper songs like it on my forthcoming playlist. Taking a day off from everything to dye my hair back to black– keeping the mohawk, and bury myself in a favourite Ian Glasper book, The Day The Country Died: A History Of Anarcho Punk 1980 to 1984. I can't ever put it down! –
