I fucking love punk.
Punk, for me, started as just a music. Now, it’s an integral part of me. Punk puts me at ease, and lets me know that I’m not the only fuck up in the world. Loneliness isn’t as prevalent when I listen punk or go to a show. Punk is really special to me. My political and social views are all represented by the punk subculture. I feel comfortable being myself because of punk. As...

Whether this phenomenon is an actual...

A Brief Yet Triumphant Introduction
Hey. My name is Patrick and I live in Michigan. I’m utilizing this page as an outlet to really just say what I need to or want to say. I’ll be posting all sorts of stuff on here. And yes, both the title of this post and the title of this blog are ripped off from an Against Me! song and a King Blues album, respectively.
