  2. Ryan Leach interviews Kira Roessler, with a new intro by w2fc's Kurt Morris!

     Ten minutes before we go on, I go into the bathroom and this very large woman kicks the crap out of me, and grabs my right hand, which has all these problems, and bends it back, which is why I know that it’s an inside job and that someone told her I had a hurt hand. It’s complicated in that she went after my weak spot. At first she tossed me around a little bit, and it didn’t hurt, so I just kind of let her. Then she got me on the ground and started smashing my head against the floor, and grabbed the hand and bent it back, and that’s when I got kind of sick of it and kicked her off me. Girls were screaming and running and I knew they would go get the guys, and the guys did come and she ran away. They chased after her and didn’t find her. Yeah, she hurt an already injured hand, and you know what? Her goal was for me not to play that night, so I played that night.

    my partner in crime Matt and I are back with another razorcake self-reflection funtime podcast! recorded on V-Day so we’re extra jaded, there’s talk of masturbation, phone sex, and other nonsense in between excellent punk tunes. also Matt’s intro is brilliant (because duh) so read on!

    “You’re bound to get idears if you go thinkin’ about stuff.” 
    –Steinbeck

    This podcast was recorded on Valentine’s Day, which is a holiday that’s more pointless than Easter. A good holiday is one that resurrects the past and inserts it into the present. Remembrance can be a revolutionary action. The resurrection of the history of the oppressed (or suppressed history) is the foundation of political progress. This is what should fill our calendars; not fucking plush teddy bears holding a plastic heart full of jelly beans. I’d like to elaborate on this and tie it in with music, but I have records that need listening to. Anyway, I’ll say this: when I’m angry I like to listen to music. It allows me to wag my mind finger at strawmen. It’s the aloe on the sunburn of existence. Jeez, I need to sleep. 

    So, goodbye valentine, goodbye guilt, goodbye god, and goodbye Alaska. 

    —Matthew
