Hello, my name is Linda. I'm from the East Coast. Sometimes my friends call me Pillowface. I am a female anarchist in college studying Spanish and Latin American Issues. I recently switched vegetarian to vegan. I translate for my local Girl Scouts council, mostly paperwork for the outreach programs and a little face-to-face interpreting here and there. I also help organize a lot of the local Critical Mass rides and I am a member/organizer of the IWW union. Few people suspect or are even aware of my political tendencies. I'm rather 'white bread' in my appearance, so to speak. My area is very Christian and rather intolerant of political ideals other than conservatism. I suppose that is why I decided to join this forum- to touch base with like-minded individuals. I have not much experience with punk music; I mostly prefer avant-garde and noise bands and also a lot of psychedelic, stoner and doom. For a few months I participated in a local art band project called 'Pigwidgeon'. That is about the extent of my experience with punk music and I enjoyed it very much.
