Riot Girrrl

 So I just finished reading 'Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution'. It's a pretty awesome book about the history of Riot Girrrl - or at least one history of it. It went on to be so many different things to different people all over the world. It brought back some pretty cool teenage memories too *scrolls through iPod to Bikini Kill & Heavens To Betsey*. 

So I came to the riot Girrrl thing a bit too late I guess, it had really started to die off by 2000 but that didn't stop my friends and I trying to write fanzines in our baby doll dresses and platform Mary Jane's. Our fanzines never made it out of our small group of friends but my teenage self would have thought these pictures were pretty cool. (note: I realise this post has nothing to do with veganism and is a nostalgic bit of self indulgence - normal service will be resumed soon)
