John Niven
“With the indie kids you have to remember this: they really think that what they do matters in some way. They reckon that history will care. (They don’t know that history will have other shit to be getting on with.) The indie kids figure that they’re passing on the torch or some fucking thing. That, just as they were influenced by someone—the Velvet Underground, Jonathan Richman, the Stooges, whoever—then, in the future, young bands will be influenced by them. Maybe so. Maybe a few thousand malnourished cockless freaks scattered around the globe will give a shit. So what? Real people don’t..”
John Niven, Kill Your Friends

Yvette Dulo

the city's rat race
from my pores

Washes away

more

And being in love
with the pulse
is all”
Yvette Dulo, She Chose to Love

“How can anyone call this angel a monster? How can anyone see this angel as a mistake? So young and alive, her soul is less than a day old, her body was made from scratch, but her blood holds billions of years of history… history passed down through her ancestors, history that she herself will soon tell future generations...
And yet, new history begins with her.”

Ruth Ann Oskolkoff
“The concert was magnificent. It was the second time she saw Floor and she loved them. Psychedelic rock. Indie. Hardcore. They always started with this great classic love song they sang a capella backstage while passing around some whisky. They each took a swig as they sang. The beautiful melodies that came out of this were amazing and the audience sang along. It was always a breathtaking moment.”
Ruth Ann Oskolkoff, Zin

Casey Renee Kiser
“Fine Tuning


My fingers
My hands
My wrists hurt so bad
from working all these years-
Working on being something,
always feeling like nothing

Some days, it hurts
to even turn the dial on the radio

But I don’t have to turn anymore
cause
you’re the right frequency (self)

And when you come to ground me,
I know that’s where I’m meant to be
stationed. Set the pre-set to
Love.”
Casey Renee Kiser, Will to Flutter

Julie Abe
“There’s a spring in my step when I see a little indie bookstore down the way, with a tea mug carved out of wood hanging in the window. Another wooden sign declares its cute and utterly perfect name: Books and Boba.
Oh, this is heaven. Round bean bags are scattered among the long shelves, crammed with everything from picture books to young adult novels to coffee table books. The tea is forgotten as I pick up a graphic novel I’ve been looking forward to and start flipping through the pages. And then there’s another new release that I want—I add it to my pile. Then another, then—
I’ve got a stack of ten books by the time I make it to one of the bean bags, this one in a funky electric-blue daisy pattern.”
Julie Abe, The Charmed List
