“It was like being back in high school and the bullies were back in charge.”

From We Were There: Voices from L.A. Punk’s First Wave | An Oral History hosted by Alice Bag:

Sean Carillo: “There was a critical turning point for me and it was when I really knew it was time for me to move on. In the beginning we used to pogo dance. It was fun and it was not violent. As silly as it may seem now, it was enormous fun. If someone fell down, the other dancers would make room for them and help them get back on their feet in order to continue dancing. I distinctly remember Black Randy falling on his ass repeatedly at the Elks Lodge and each and every time we helped him up. His pants were falling down too. It was rather comical, actually.

Later, the mosh pit was born and dancing was no longer fun. The “pogo” was replaced by slam dancing and I felt uncomfortable once more. It was like being back in high school and the bullies were back in charge. Punk had changed.”

Stay sane inside insanity

“A laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it’s the only weapon we have.” -Roger Rabbit

 

From How to #StayOutraged Without Losing Your Mind by Mirah Curzer:

“Don’t let anyone tell you that humor has no place in the movement, or that you aren’t allowed to be proud of your contribution, or that it’s unseemly to have fun while you’re doing serious work. That’s all bull, and it’s counterproductive to boot.”

“One of the best ways to make activism fun is to make it easy. Resolve to do something small every day, without fail. There are many “daily action” lists going around, each with different emphasis, but they’re all very similar. Pick one and commit to following it. It will make you feel great, and will do wonders to combat that helpless, hopeless feeling. Plus, by doing something every day (even if it’s small) you will actually accomplish a lot — probably more than if you only do big things once a year.

Don’t forget to play to your strengths. There’s no need to force yourself to do a kind of work that you find unpleasant or boring. If you’re a writer, write articles shedding light on important issues, convincing the other side or rallying your allies to action. If you’re an artist, make art with a conscience. Teachers can bring social justice into your curriculum. Lawyers can volunteer at free legal clinics, write amicus briefs, do pro bono work. Like to argue? Be the one who calls out the sexist comment at a dinner party when everyone else doesn’t know how to react. Love to bake? Bring cookies to activist meetings and homeless shelters. No matter what your passion is, there’s a way to use it for good and have a great time doing it.”

Self-care Resource Round-up

Very important, now more than ever!

Knee Sock Chronicles

I am a huge proponent of self-care. Self-care is the hill I shall die on. Self-care needs to come first because you cannot pour from an empty cup. There is a reason that they tell you to put on your oxygen mask first before helping others.

That being said, I’ve been amazingly shitty at self-care the past two weeks. I’ve felt overwhelmed and lost and generally a mess. An angry mess. Definitely a mess. But I’ve thought of some things and learned some things and I’m going to share them here in this general self-care round-up post. As I learn more things, I’ll update this post so bookmark it for yourself and share it with others who you think will benefit.

  1. First of all, you do not have to show up to your own abuse. If this means tapping out of holiday celebrations with family that make you feel threatened…
