Re: Coachella 2014

What Marowak said. Coachella artists are contract-bound not to announce other Southern California appearances until a few weeks before the festival, but now that it's two weekends, it's standard procedure for those acts to book other shows in smaller venues before or after the festival. So keep your...

Re: Laura Jane Grace Radio 1 Documentary

I thought it was great! I hope that it helped put a human face on an issue that some people need more education about.

Re: Koala - The Way I Tend To Be

Haha, brilliant! I have a photo of myself with a koala at that same sanctuary, and my friends just gave me eucalyptus-scented lotion last night. I think more giggles are in order.

Re: US Tour 2013

Koo Koo Kanga Roo is the best band you could ever hope to have opening your tour! They are fun, energetic, and they get the crowd excited to be there. If a person can let go of being so serious about life for just a few minutes, and give them an actual listen, and GET INVOLVED with their show...You...

Re: Albums you love all the way through

I'm surprised no one has said _London Calling_! Epic album. Besides FT albums... I also like all the Nirvana albums all the way through, and most Bad Religion albums up through _The Process of Belief_. I realize I'm in the minority these days for actually listening to entire albums MOST of the time....

Re: Tattoos

Venomous, that's awesome! Thanks for sharing! Curious to know (once you're done) how long it took in total... And, yes, tattooing over the spine (and for me, shoulder blades) was excruciating.

Re: The Gaslight Anthem

Love Sink or Swim and The 59 Sound; wasn't as enthused about the third and fourth, though I do love the actual song "Handwritten" and a few others... just felt recent efforts were less consistent, but would still go see them again live.

In no particular order... --walls covered in fuschia, red, purple, and peach bougainvillea --Purple jacaranda trees in bloom in LA --poppies, tulips, foxgloves, morning glories, and probably more (Roses are so BORING.) --the way Southern California afternoon sunlight bathes everything in a golden ha...

Re: Inspiration?

Frank Turner and his songs have inspired me to... --Get tattooed…twice! Not because “Frank has tats and I want some, too”, but because, after over ten years of watching friends around me get all sorts of ink while I couldn’t think of a single thing I’d want tattooed on my body for the rest of my lif...

Yep, that's me. Thanks for the kind words; it's definitely gotten some love from FT fans online, and I'm glad they like it, too. :-)

Re: I think FT would enjoy this TV show

I haven't seen this show, but I loved the last line of the description because, during my (thus far) only trip to New York City, a friend and I really did tumble drunkenly into a taxi in the wee hours of the morning and simply instruct the driver, "Take us to cheese fries." And that he did! Good mem...

Re: Tattoos

Can't wait to see a photo! I was (partially) inspired by that full-body atlas, too, but like you, the end product (designed by my friend as well) ended up quite different than I was expecting after my tattoo artist adapted it to make it more workable for my upper back. (You can find it on Frank's FB...

Jeff, that's awesome; thanks for the welcome to join your merry crew. I just saw this and requested to join the FB group, but wanted to post here, too, in case you don't make the connection between Analisa and ToTheWest.

Re: US Tour 2013

Okay...so I've bought tickets to the LA, San Diego, and the Vegas shows (as soon as I got off my overnight train, which made me antsy when it arrived three and a half fucking hours late! Tickets went on sale in the middle of my LONG journey. Thailand is cool, but they get low marks in the railway pu...
