Yes we’re very entertaining, overtones can be betraying
‘Tray, ‘tray, ‘tray, ‘traaaying.”

In the 2000s I had a dream with Ian MacKaye, and we were sitting on a bench. It was in a large park. It was a cool wintery day. I looked up and saw large explosions in the sky. I saw UFOs that were large and colorful. He handed me a 3-inch-long circular disk. It was silver with strange symbols etched on it. I wondered what it was. He told me it was mine to have now.


Punk The Capital

A FILM BY JAMES JUNE SCHNEIDER, PAUL BISHOW, AND SAM LAVINE

I hope someday they all have the balls to tell me the truth, officially apologize to me and be sincere about it.


When James and his camera person came out to interview me over 10 years ago, I was thrilled to be included in this DC documentary. All seemed up and up. I prepared a real solid presentation of information and documentation for the film. He came to my home and met up with my oldest son. My oldest took pictures as well.

In retrospection it still hurts my heart to reflect on this. I corresponded with James Schneider. On the week before the Los Angeles Premier, he asked me to promote and tell my friends about the event. I did and also was happy to do so.

I made the mistake of thinking I was going to be on the panel before and after the film. As a representative of Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine who took the responsibility to do so. I am also a Los Angeles person who represents music in her city.

I was told in front of the event that I was edited out of the documentary and was told by James that it was because I was not from DC.

I thought to myself at the time, “why didn’t he tell me this before I made this effort to come and be part of something that I was excluded from in such a rude way. Why did he wait over 10 years of correspondence and support to tell me at this moment?”

I had a few friends tell me in other places that they liked the documentary and my part in it was great. I was excited to be included. As a female journalist and co-owner and publisher of Flipside Fanzine It is my mission to promote Flipside and to get it acknowledged in a historical narrative.

I was not included on the panel, and it was Ian who talked for me. Patronizing me. I believe that Henry had me edited out of the documentary.

Another point I want to address is the theme or format of this documentary is put together based on my original presentation. I had a large white board with black lines connecting all the DC players with their documented histories with Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine. (vice versa) It really is amazing to see when I saw it throughout this documentary. James told me nothing about this until after the fact. Only after my mentioning it. Then he did an Ian move of only patronizing me.

I guess I wish James would send me the original interview, edited out, I did with him so I can use it in my documentaries.

My interview was replaced by a guy from some DC band who read from Flipside. It was very embarrassing and broke my heart. I know who he is but fuck him.

I have since lost all my love and good feelings towards all of the DC people. None of them have sincerely bothered to stand up for me.

It is very sad indeed.

James used the material I gave him. Only using things that excluded me. Skating and Al Flipside’s voice. Which is good but very strange and it felt sexist. Yes, it seems borderline sexist and extremely telling of these guys. Shame on them.

I saw things I did not want to see. Felt feelings I did not want to feel. I guess I just felt used. It is terrible because everything I did to help the documentary was out of years of documenting a punk scene, the love of a scene and the love of a Fanzine. And God knows we at Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine supported Ian, Henry, and the whole bunch.

Not just Al… there were a hand full of us. I am just about the only one these days that does step up to the plate. How about that. PTTTTT.


I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare

Exhibition is the name, voyeurism is the game
Stereoscopic is the show, viewing time makes it grow
Grow, grow, grow, grooow

I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare

My facade is just a fake, shock horror no escape
Sensationalism for the feed, caricatures are what you breed
Breed, breed, breed, breeeed

I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare

I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare

Anti-art was the start, establishments like a laugh
Yes we’re very entertaining, overtones can be betraying
‘Tray, ‘tray, ‘tray, ‘traaaying

I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
I am a poseur and I don’t care, I like to make people stare
