I really like Expire. I don’t care. Hi.
Lemme remind everyone that this is a real band. Last night, they made an aggressive slut shaming post that was backed by almost their entire fan base. If this band isn’t done soon, hardcore as we know it will take a bad turn, not that it already hasn’t
keep in mind this band eventually deleted their slut shaming status even after they said that they don’t care about the haters.
good job east beast.
Late to the party, but I basically want everyone in this band to die
Welcome to the steady decline of the Merrimack Valley hardcore scene. No words for the ignorance displayed.
I was the first female to respond to this post and as expected received a sizeable amount of bullshit in response. But it was also comforting to receive a lot of support from both males and females who I didn’t know. I don’t have the energy to restate my issues with what was said. It was ultimately juvenile and coming from a place of hatred, not respect. I supported this band until yesterday. I still support those in the band who were disgusted by how their vocalist acted.
I think it’s important for discussions like this to happen, maybe even more important via facebook rather than tumblr. I got a lot of shit for bring my “tumblr feminst” “PC” comments to the table, but I laugh because even I have made fun of the ego-stroking methods of tumblr “activists” but still KNEW it was important for me to speak out against this. The difference is that I personally know this person, I am involved with people in this scene, and want to continue contributing to discussion of local issues of oppressive behavior. This music community is supposed to be supportive and non-judgemental and words like this do nothing but alienate people from it. Thanks to all who recognized this and care enough about MVHC, BHC, and the general punk community to speak out against this. I tried to remain as civil as possible while still asserting that this is not okay.
YO THIS IS STRAIGHT UP DISGUSTING
This is not MA hardcore. This is a silly shithead’s opinion.
Fresh Bid to Find Tasmanian Tiger
by Lucy Shannon
There is to be another bid to search for evidence that Tasmanian tigers, thylacines (long presumed extinct), are alive and well.
Representatives from the UK-based Centre for Fortean Zoology will join local searchers venturing into the wilderness near Smithton, in Tasmania’s north-west.
The British cryptozoologists have previously tried to find Australia’s so-called “big foot”, the Yowie.
Expedition member Tony Healy says the team will use a range of equipment.
"[We’ll have] a lot of trail cameras, game cameras and we’ve all got infra-red devices… just spotlighting, looking for tracks," he said…

Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa sp)
These are impressively large (2.5cm/1 inch) and awe-inspiring insects particularly attracted locally it seems to Crotolaria flowers. Their name comes from the fact that nearly all species build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers aided by their ample mandibles.
Heavily burdened with pollen, this individual was resting in the shade and allowed me a few shots before stirring into life and setting me on my butt as it flew past my ear.

I don’t think I eat enough. I feel like I’ve lost weight though I haven’t stepped on a scale in over a year. I see pictures of myself and dislike so many things about my body.
This isn’t a cry for sympathy, or me fishing for compliments. Just something I felt the need to say.
