AFP at SXSW – schedule & NINJA!

IF if if you’re at SXSW or in Austin, Texas, i am HERE.


this blog is a list of shit i’m doing….some events require a SXSW badge (which are indeed expensive) and some do not.
don’t buy a SXSW badge just to see me: just come to one of the other gigs.
i’m going to do a q&a at the ninja-gig so if you have industry-type questions, ask me there!

from under the sun,

p.s. neil took this photo while we were listening to kathleen hannah answer questions about her autobiographical film “the punk singer” the other night:
holy fuck, such deep resonance…
neil kept looking over at me, it was like he intuitively sensed the moments i was going to be in tears (he was usually right).
recommended watching for all fans of bikini kill, le tigre, riot grrrl, feminism, women, music, truth, and human beings sharing more than they are comfortable with.
went to a bar afterwards and talked about how hard it was, in retrospect, to grow up as a girl with a constant fear and painfully nagging habit of comparing myself to other girls, and how i still battle the habit. kathleen spoke to it loudly and gave me food for thought for weeks.

p.p.s. the film was Kickstarter’ed for about $60k. it’s a revolution.
