    Heyyyyyyy, Im Emma. I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Im really into feminism, photography (the old school way aka film and chemicals and a darkroom), activism, d.i.y, zines, op-shops, street art, beer, goon and rolling my own ciggies. Im not a vegan or even a vego, Im not in a band and I never hung out at Flinders Station steps like all the other Melbourne hardcore/old skool punk kids did. I mainly listen to riot grrrl/fem punk/shreiky chick bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Huggy Bear, Blatz, Heavens to Betsy, Pussycat Trash, Skinned Teen, Kleenex/Liliput, Lunachicks, X-Ray Spex, The Distillers, The Gits, Tsunami Bomb, Raooul, Hole, Phantom Pregnancies, Partyline, L7, and I listen to alot of other bands like The Cramps, Beat Happening, Dead Kennedys, Operation Ivy, Misfits, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, Nirvana, Madness, Billy Bragg, Lydia Lunch, The Birthday Party, Joy Division, etc. I love pretty much anything else thats from the 90's, lo-fi, post-punk, grunge, home recorded, political, feminist, anti religion or just made for the love of music, not greed/fame.

    My music taste and opinion/outlook on the world doesn't appeal to many, and I really don't give a fuck.
    :D

    I'll check out those bands indeed! Thanks :)

    Whoooo another melb person. Yeah even the thought of sitting there while waiting for a friend makes me feel slightly ill, I can't bring myself to do it.
    All the kids that hung out there were a bunch of fuckwits, thats all. But I think I may be friends with a few of them...hmm not sure haha.

    Ooooh that would be maddd! Have you ever been to Barricade Books? ts an anarchist bookshop/zine store in northcote or something?
    Ie wanted to check it out out for ages, but I dont go to that side of melb very often.
    Hmmm I'll have to keep looking around to see what other melb things I come across, hopefully some decent bands or something :D

    flinders is a funny one. Started with the melb punks, then the goths took over, then the "emo" kids " (The ones who listen to My Chem and probably don't even know who Sunny Day Real Estate are) and now the cops hang around there and periodically clear the steps of alternative looking folks. I've never been one to hang there but i almost feel compelled to now just to hit the cops with some confusing rhetoric.

    "punkmar77, how can you not like joy division?"

    I dont really hate 'em like I do the Misfits but I'm just neither here nor there about 'em, now Mudhoney on the other hand.....maybe it's just the Irish side of me that finds some English stuff unpalatable :D

    Whoaaaaa I've missed out on a bit here haha.

    Thanks punkmar77! I never was that big on Joy Division, but then I watched Control. Fkn good movie and you cant help but like them afterwards. Im a alot more into female punk than male, and misfits and stuff like that arent even close to being a fav band, its just a form of (male) punk i listen to, occasionally haha. So you like mudhoney, or not....? Irish ey? Niiiiiiiice.

    dwtcos: YESSSSSSSSSSSS! Sonic Youth, one of my all time favs, and I got to see them live like 2 years ago. Fkn amazingggggg!

    Probe: Oh really, it got attacked? Thats so fucked. I really wanna visit it soon! Let me know if you are actually contemplating going and I'll come!! :D
