Going Underground: On Oakland & Why We Need D.I.Y. Spaces Now More Than Ever (PHX SUX)

Here’s my latest piece for PHX SUX. This one touches on what happened in Oakland, and why it’s so important to keep D.I.Y. spaces running (and at a low profile). It also features photos from some of the rad Phoenix D.I.Y. spaces of old (Inner City Youth Center, Theater In My Basement, and the Iron Lady- R.I.P. You sweet old house venues).

How I Learned To Love Phoenix By Flirting With Seattle

My latest piece for the fine folks at PHX SUX. A few weeks ago I went down to Seattle to visit some old friends and to enjoy a change of scenery. While I was there I had a fantastic time (Seattle is an extraordinary city) that also served as a reminder about what the best part of living in Phoenix is.

I’ll give you a hint: It’s not the weather.

“You Weren’t There”

Last week an excellent art exhibit opened at Modified Arts in downtown Phoenix. It’s called “You Weren’t There: Early Punk & New Wave in Phoenix”, and if you’re a fan of underground music/culture and happen to be in the PHX it is an absolute MUST SEE.

I did a review for it on PHX SUX. Click on ze link and enjoy!

It was so hot today that Satan banned all of his demons from working in Phoenix, citing “unsafe and inhumane working conditions”.

It was so hot today that Slip N Slides turned into Scald N Screams.

It was so hot today that Buddhist monks started making mandalas out of ice cream to better convey the suffering and pointlessness of human existence.

It was so hot today that Jesus refused to take the wheel: He wasn’t about to pile third degree burns on top of his stigmata!

It was so hot today that volcano cultists sacrificed virgins by pushing them into Phoenician hot tubs.
