Posted by:sorelladimorte.
Time:1:52 pm.
Mood: giddy.
Name: Sabrina
Sexuality: Bi-Sexual
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Relationship Status: Taken
Location: Cleveland
Occupation: High School Student, unfortunately. Come on, 2015!
Interests: Punk Rock, Art, Writing, Cars, Working with my hands, Horror films/books/art, hardcore anything, rap/hip hop, chillwave...I'm not at all picky with my music. I pretty much like anything. I also like driving, motorcycles, going hard and fast, shaving my head, dying my hair, and drinking coffee on a cold autumn day. Lame, right?
Movies: Horror, Comedic, or any documentary film.


Pen Pal Info

How many pen pals have you had? None, until (hopefully) now!
How many pen pals do you want? It doesn't really matter. I honestly just want someone to talk to when I'm having a bad day - and vice versa (them talk to me on a bad day or whatever).
Do you want email pals? Of course! Whatever way of communication is fine!
Do you handwrite or type? I do both!
Esimated reply time? Depends on my day and how much shit I have to do. But, I always reply as fast as I can, no matter what!
Would you like a male or female pen pal? I don't have a preference.
Where would you like your pen pal to be from? Cleveland would be nice, but I honestly don't care.

Also?
I'm just looking for someone to talk to, since I'm already in a pretty commited relationship! Anyone teenaged to around 25 is alright with me (I'm not picky with age, just don't be a creepy prick). Maybe we could go out for coffee and a cigarette, my treat?

Subject:Older Punk Still Keen!
Posted by:ext_1593904.
Time:11:00 am.
(Please note this is a posting on behalf of someone else. Any email connected with this profile will not get to the person. Please send a real letter!)

Hello! I'm posting this from the Gulag State of California - USA. I'm currently slammed down for a little while and I'm seeking some punk rock therapy by way of correspondence.

I'm from Orange County California and grew up in the 80's hardcore scene. Favourite bands include (but are certainly not limited to): Wasted Youth, Suicidal Tendancies, D.I, Bad Religion, Agent Orange. I could go on with the bands forever. These are simply ones I can listen to every day - all day.

My interests include: writing, tattooing, drawing, pitbulls, and poetry. I'm big on honestly and loyalty and I believe the world could use more of both. I miss my freedom and I miss interacting with people other than convicts and correctional officers. It sucks!

I'm 42 years old and I am looking to enhance my life with cool people. If you're reading this and think my photo looks ok than you are most definitely cool!

So pick up your pen and write!

He estado estudiando Espanol y nesicito espanol - escribame, for fav! Nos podemos escribir en Espanol.

Alright well I just stumbled across this live journal or whatver (i'm not that tech savvy of a teenager) and the concept seemed really cool to me so I thought I'd give it a try :) In my town there really aren't very many (meaning absolutely ZERO) punks around so It would be nice to get in touch with some people of the scene.

Music: Punk rock. I pretty much like it all from The Clash to BTMI to Pat the Bunny. From Hardcore to old school to folk. I like ska music too so ska punk is a love <3 I also sometimes like an indie or hip hop song, but very rarely. I try to listen to all types of music but punk is really the only kind that sticks to me.

SInce I haven't really been around many punks, I'm still relatively new to the scene. I've never been to a show :( cause i could never drag someone with me and I'm a bit too awkward to do things on my own. I'm kinda nerdy but not like overly so, its subtle. I'm love making mix tapes for my friends and sharing music, even if they don't like it :p. Email me if you want to talk or if you want my address for some snail mail

My name's Choo. I'm a 22 year old queer poly grrrl.

I love snail mail. I'm a pretty consistent pen pal. I've had a handful of 'em over the years and it's something I really enjoy doing, so I like to keep up with it.

I'm looking for anyone, really, but especially people who are into doing music trades. I'll make you a bomb-ass mix tape. Odd scraps and strange drawings and patches and small trinkets are always fun, too. Whatever. Get creative!

I'm pretty flexible musically, especially with most things that fall under the "punk" umbrella, but I'm really into riotgrrrl/lady-fronted bands, folk punk, and old school hardcore.

I like traveling stories, collective housing, urban gardening, anarcho-primitivism, feminism, queer theory, poetry, DIY and riding my bicycle.

P.S. If you're going to Plan-It-X Fest, I definitely want to meet you.


In other news, Jenny is a climber.



**UPDATE**

I hacked my dreads sorta recently, so if you wanna spot me at PIX Fest:

a3!

Hi, my name's Alice, I'm 27 and living in northern France though I'm originally from Australia (this is what happens when you travel too much). Looking for anyone who wants to share bits and pieces of life, pics, zines, fliers, artwork, band stuff, DIY thingies, odd n ends, etc. I'm a trad skinhead (don't worry, that means strictly ANTI racist), so I love Oi, but also listen to a lot of punk, ska, psychobilly, horrorpunk, postpunk, early reggae and northern soul, have been floating around various scenes for the past decade or so - SO I dont really mind if your interests are different to mine, I'm pretty open and just like discovering stuff about other people.

My interests include: reading constantly, writing (been working on a book which will one day propel me into literary megastardom), dancing badly at every given opportunity, getting really excited about bands, having a quiet drink, having a loud drink, DIYing my own 'clothes' (I use that term loosely), 'playing' guitar and writing 'music', home haircutting, making careless tattooing decisions, and many other things you'll have to listen about, I'm afraid. 
I go to see live bands weekly, travel around europe a lot, meet a lot of people and collect various crap along the way, so if anyone's interested and happy to be on the receiving end of some pretty badly decorated letters, then don't be shy!

Mood: curious.
Right, So I'm 22, from north of NYC. I'm a journalism student, just started a band with some guys in my department who like drinking and playing punk rock. I like writing, reading, horror movies, all sorts of music not just punk rock. Ummm, what else? I'm a bit of a flake, though I'll feel obligated to write back to you if you write to me. I'm down to trade mixs, and just about whatever, though heavy postage is a problem at times, I'm always broke. So step right up I've got some pretty odd stories that are worth a listen.

Subject:Penpal wanted
Posted by:nihilistvlad.
Time:9:40 am.
hey, I'm a 22 year old rockabilly/punk kinda girl from Melbourne, Australia.
I enjoy crawling through drains, painting skateboards and organising gigs/events.
I just ran away to my nan's house in the country after my son (3.5 yrs) was hit by his dad.
I may get back together with my ex (not the dad) but it's going to take a few months for that to happen. In the meantime I'm not sure what to do. Today I go back to my house to clean up, whether I'll keep on renting it or get rid of it and move to the country or interstate, I'm yet to decide. I'd like to travel around Australia, but it'd be best to wait a couple of years to do that. Yesterday I got stung on the back of the neck by a wasp, OW! had a stray dog follow me back through the bush, i had to take it home and nan called the ranger.. last night I started writing a zine about my ordinary trip to an ordinary place. Sometimes I feel as though I could say a lot more to a penpal that I can't say in a zine. Penpals who are 18+ with real world experience preferred.

Hope to hear from you soon!

1. What kind of a pen pal are you looking for? someone who is open minded, a good listener AND a good talker. someone who isn't going to judge.
2. What would you like to exchange through the mail? anything. letters, post cards, silly pictures. we can also email if you would prefer
3. What kind of music do you like? i appreciate all music, but listen to very little of it. I am a theatre student so I listen to a lot of musicals. I also love disney music and jazz. My favorite bands/artists are Backseat Goodbye, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Motion City Soundtrack, and Bob Dylan.
4. Any hobbies or other specific interests? Theatre is my life. I am going to school for stage management right now.
5. Anything interesting about you:  I have been a vegetarian since I was 6, but I am not a crazy PETA freak. I have a million stories to share. I don't sleep much. My parents are profession balloon artists and I can do it too. I complain too much, but I am really good at giving advice, though I can't handle my own issues.I am 19 and from the midwest.

Hey, my name is Kate, I'm 20 years old and I live in the UK. I'm stuck in a job I hate in a city thats suffocating me, planning my escape , dreaming wildly and doing a lot of reading in the mean time.

1. What kind of a pen pal are you looking for?
Anyone with anything interesting to say. People who write often and that I may one day get to meet.
Grrrls and boys with hope in their hearts, but no sexist/racist/fatphobic/transphobic/homophobic people!

2. What would you like to exchange through the mail?
Letters, zines, mix-tapes, post cards, articles, stickers, book recommendations, anything!

3. What kind of music do you like?
Punk/riot grrrl/soul mainly, but I don't like to limit myself and my mix-tapes are usually quite eclectic.. witch hunt, wet dog, bikini kill, x-ray spex, red aunts, ESG, moldy peaches, antischism, spitboy, poison girls, mika miko, huggy bear, nina simone, imperial leather, breeders, new bloods, naked aggression, au pairs......

4. Any hobbies or other specific interests?
Learning how to cook (I suck), radical mental health, feminism, art, writing, READING, reproductive rights,FOOD, photo booths, my cat, zines, collage art, mythology, photocopiers, my typewriter, bike rides, nature, tea, coffee.

1-2. Hey, I'm looking for any kind of pen pal to write about anything and everything and to send anything and everything. Photos, articles, zines, mixes, even random candy wrappers, because getting nonsensical things in the mail is fun.

3. As far as music goes, my tastes are varied. Most of my time is spent listening to bands like Red Sparowes, Tragedy, Jawbreaker and the Lawrence Arms. But when it's not, there's a good chance you'll catch me listening to the song "The Cool" by Lupe Fiasco, haha.

4. I'm happiest when I'm traveling to new places and meeting lots of new people and just running around doing whatever pops into my head next, but because I'm in college right now, the amount of time I spend doing that is limited. But I also really like learning and reading, so it's cool. I love exploring abandoned places, hanging out in the city or in the middle of nowhere in nature, going to shows, reading, and watching movies on lazy nights. I like taking photos but most of all printing them alone in the darkroom in the middle of the night, and I love all animals.

5. I don't believe in rules or laws or responsibilities; I think the only responsibility anyone really has is to themselves. But, hopefully you're a nice person so you're respectful and considerate of others anyway. If not, that's alright, and it's your prerogative, but I won't respect you or be interested in being your friend.
I work in a coffee shop and I love it because I don't have to be all bullshit professional and sugar-sweet. Also because I get to drink lots of free coffee.
I'm very bad at being professional and sugar-sweet, because if I don't feel like smiling, my face literally won't move into a smile. You can read my emotions like a book.
I spent a couple weeks volunteering in an animal rescue center in the Andes in Ecuador. Every day I played with bears and monkeys and pet lions (while lugging buckets of food and water up and down the mountain slopes, of course.) I got to spend a weekend racing horses through the mountains. It was amazing but also really inspiring because I always knew I wanted to just drop responsibilities one day and spend a couple years traveling at my heart's content, never knowing where the day would take me. And it was a vague idea until I went to Ecuador and met all these people who were doing just that, and it made it real for me.
