Sad to say this is it in the tumblr world for me thanks to everyone who have followed me and sent me messages of encouragement it was greatly appreciated
It really sucks in life when all you want to do is reach out to an old friend to be there for him but you can’t because they are mad at you for some stuff that happened. If this comes across my old friend I just wanna let him know that I am here for him and it really is awful what he and his family are going through and I’m sending out all my good energy his way.
Punk Rock Warlord
Today marks the 60th birthday of my hero and amazing front man Joe Strummer, it’s really amazing that someone you never met could have that much effect on my entire life. I remember when I was a kid and I got Dookie on tape and played it nonstop as did most kids in 94’. One day my Dad heard me listening to that and told me that they were a total rip off of The Clash and then he played me London Calling when I heard the first few notes and Joes voice come through the speakers my life changed, and when the record finished I felt like I would never be the same and I never was. Cheers to you Joe this drink is for you man.
Growing up in New Jersey in the late 90s early 00s I was surrounded by the pop punk rock movement, until a friend of mine took me to see this band called Against me in 2002 and soon after that my whole idea of punk rock changed. They are one of the bands I have always looked up to and after Tom Gabel came out that he would now be Laura Grace I couldn’t have been happier for her. To share something like that with the world takes great strength and courage. I’m so proud to be part of a scene that accepts everyone, in the words of Laura Grace “We’re all in this together”
