new web stuff!

Along with a new website redesign, we now have a merch store! We have t-shirts, CDs, and even cassette tapes. Sometimes in the summer, I bust out my cassette player (aka, “the rock box”), bungee cord it to the handlebars of my bike, and blare old mixtapes around town. I kind of heart cassettes.

Feminist anti-Putin punk ladies arrested for “hooliganism” (i.e., performance art)

The activist ladies in Pussy Riot! staged an anti-Putin protest inside the largest Orthodox Cathedral in Moscow, performing their “punk prayer” song entitled, Mother of God, Send Putin Away. Three women have been arrested and face up to seven years in prison on charges of “hooliganism.” If you want to stay up-to-date, there is now a Free Pussy Riot! webpage. They also have a facebook group.
