One Idiot's Trip To The Bay Area

If you've paid attention to me recently, you'll know I went to Oakland in February. I wrote a thing about it here: https://wander.media/from-scotland-to-oakland-with-rage-and-love Please go read! (or at least click on the link and leave it open for a while) I really enjoyed my time there, and I'm so grateful to have had this opportunity, although there's still so many places I'd love to visit. I missed out on a Cover Ups show by about a week, which is frustrating, but at least I got to

Would love if you guys would take some time to check out my soon to be released to the public EP Good Luck with That and help me choose the song to lead off on promoting the album this Monday. Please help, I'm more indecisive than you could ever know.

7 years ago, I flew 3,500 miles to see American Idiot on Broadway

I’d flown over New York City once. My knowledge extended little further than a night shot from Top of the Rock I’d seen – a view I dreamed one day I would see with my own eyes, or better yet, photograph myself. On February 22nd, 2011, on a plane stuck in a gate at Heathrow Airport, I wasn’t sure I’d ever get there. After a failed take off, rows of anxious people waited several hours to learn the fate of our flight. The de-icing system was probably alright, the crew said, and we’d try taking

First comic

So, what the title says. I have been through some tough stuff these past few months  and this is my (hopefully) positive response. Anyway, one thing I connected with my older sister on as kid was comics. She recently had a brush with death, and although we have a not great relationship, I want to revisit the thing we connected over. It's supposed to be cathartic.  So, I'm drawing up some comics. They feature characters somewhat based off of real people I know. Every name has been chang

Merged Movies, TV & Books with General and re-organized content

We've merged the 'Movies, TV, & Books' subforum with General Chat. Looking at how active both subforums were, we agreed it made sense to merge the two into 'General' since the topics fit together and one wasn't getting way more traffic than the other. We also reorganized the subforums a tiny bit: Renamed "Interests" category to 'General', and placed General Chat, Clubs, and Other Artists under that, and placed Welcome to Paradise, Advice and Brink of your Vision under 'Community'.

Following the RevRad Tour: from Champaign to Las Vegas

I got on stage, appeared on TV in Iowa, nearly got arrested in Vegas and finally made it to Oakland. This is the story of a dream I've had since I was 12 years old. My Rage, My Love, My Life #4: Champaign to Vegas Flight DY7015 touched down in New York on March 25, 2017. It had been six years, but the airport still looked exactly the same. There were still only three people manning passport control. My mum, Joy, still got dragged off into a side room for no apparent reason. W

I Wrote This Song For You

I Wrote This Song for You     I wrote this for song you.   I hope you didn’t have me confused with someone who throws moments like this away.    While I have your attention,  there’s oh-so-much I’d like to say.   What if I told you that when you smile, I feel compelled to do the same?   Or, what if I told you, that when it snows I’m happy  because I’ve seen your face glow while the white-crystals fall  softly above y

New Year's Resolutions: Resolved

One of the most common new year's resolutions is to exercise more, a change that could be implemented at any time of the year. The beginning of a new year feels like the perfect excuse for a fresh start, and to change something about yourself you've been meaning to for some time. But of course the popularity of this gives rise to offers, which makes more people leave it until the start of a new year to go to the gym. And thus the circle of new year's resolutions continues ad nauseam.  One H

It's such a shit feeling when an artist you admire dies. It's this weird state of mourning, where you didn't really know the person, but at the same time, you did. You knew their art, their music, you knew what they were like on the other side of a camera lens, you've fallen asleep to their voice. And now they're just... gone. It's hard to comprehend how real it is, because for me the change isn't discernible or immediate. But fuck does it hurt anyway. I haven't stopped listening to hi

How The Voice Came To Be

I don't know if The Voice is something that we are all born with, which only flourishes under the right circumstances. However, I know it has been active since I was old enough to form an opinion of myself.  I  remember thinking I was ugly and unlikeable at the very beginning of primary school. Throughout my childhood and my teenage years, The Voice grew stronger and more powerful, fuelled by the harsh words of my fastidious, traditional parents and bullies. At first, I believed The Voice was my

My Green Days #4 - Photos

A few weekends ago I stumbled upon a really cool neighborhood in Hamburg that's basically the punk leftist heartland. There's cute little shops, cool restaurants and street art everywhere. I fell in love instantly.  If I could choose anywhere to live, it would probably there. In the first two pictures there were a few people watching a footballame in front of a bar. The second picture honestly isn't that good but I had to take it secretly because I loved his vest. I was kicking myself for not te

Northern Soul

Somehow I've suddenly not posted any writing here for coming up to a year. EDIT: I liked this when I saw it again and did a little rewrite, changed up the middle stanza and made it a little more reflective. I like it. I've not been writing much - I've not had vast amounts of inspiration - but the more my year in Sheffield fades in the rear view mirror the more I'm drawing from it, the more I see it did for me.      Northern Soul    Said she was down from Glasgow

New lyrics. Enjoy.   Paper Alcohol   I don't bow to hurricanes When the need strikes, you gotta take the reins Soak up the poison, choking me make me do things you wouldn't believe   Impulse or reason, Moderation or greed Believe in the sickness Believe in me   Chorus: Paranoia Unable to be cured Leave us to die At the whim of the absurd   Rebounding coil Incentivize the pured Leave
