really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction, biography-and-memoir, music, punk-rock

There is a reason most of us do not publish the diaries we keep when we are teenies, and that reason is paragraph after paragraph about how the world is cold, no one understands me, maybe I'll cut myself for a while, everything is terrible, I hate the whole world and they hate me back, my girlfriend just broke up with me long-distance and I will be ALONE FOREVER. I spent a lot of this laughing and thinking to myself, CRY MOAR, HENRY ROLLINS.

That said! I enjoyed the hell out of it! It's a great look at the early underground music scene, and it made me incredibly grateful that there were people in the world willing to bleed and starve and fight for their music, and even MORE grateful that I am not one of those people.
