gypsyrm asked: Hi... it's me, Gypsy, again. Contrary to popular belief, I do other things than ask people questions on Tumblr! Anyways. I make/write a feminist/music/punk zine called One Feminist Girl. I'm trying to make things with a Riot Grrrl era feel, for girls like me and my friends who are rather depressed that nothing like that is really happening anymore. I was wondering if maybe you would do a short 5-8 question interview for it, about your music and own experience with feminism, via email or Tumblr?
Sure! Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
gypsyrm asked: I read an interview with you on Rookie Mag from 2011 and you sound really cool. I want to start a feminist punk band with my friends. Is it difficult to start learning how to play the drums?
I think anyone is capable of learning drums. The way I started was practicing standard 4/4 rock beats. These days youtube is a great place to learn new things. I’m sure there are some great instructional drum videos for beginners. If i were you, I’d just start playing with friends and jump right into it. It doesn’t have to be “good” it just has to be fun!

This is Kyle. He just finished recording/producing my new band’s first album. He’s an angel and he gets it. ♌
Hi guys! Decided to post on tumblr again. Reading through all the messages I hadn’t seen made me really happy and grateful that there are so many genuine, positive people in the world. It’s easy to forget that. Xo
