So now that its Winter break, i have time to catch up with reading the magazines i'm subscribed to.
So I open up my VIBE magazine (with Luther Vandross on the cover) and get to page142. This article spoke to me on so many different levels. To put it easily, it was about black people and their relation to punk rock music and this dude James Spooner. He made a indie film AFRO-PUNK and the article was talking about his relationship with punk rock as a black man and all the racism he gets from it (from traditional punk rock kids and black people who don't get it). The article is a few pages long, so I wont type out the whole thing. But i think everyone should read it. VIBE magazine December 2005 issue. It perfectly describes how I feel about my relationship with rock music.
But then I get to this little column in the James Spooner article. I WILL type this out because it is 100% me. Hopefully, you will take the time out of your schedules to click on the lj cut
Oh, and you don't have to be black to identify with the article.( Come as you areCollapse )
