anarcho-punk pottery and me

anarcho-punk from wiki: Anarcho-punk has been highlighted as one of the social phenomena which took anarchism in the direction of identity politics (or "lifestylism"). Some argue that style became an essential ingredient of the movement, sometimes obscuring other factors, although others would reply that the performers who aligned themselves with anarcho-punk in fact embraced a wide diversity of approaches in both format and ideas. This would appear to be borne out by the range of anarcho-punk artists and performers. As well, it is often argued that the fashion was simply representative of the ethics associated with anarchism, such as anti-corporate, do-it-yourself beliefs.

I have been in a wild mood lately. Well, maybe most of my life. Its nice there's a label I can put on it, and anarcho-punk sounds so serious, leavened with piggies it makes a person laugh.
