YOUTH IN REVOLT

Size four models that look like they haven’t had a bad hair day or a zit in their entire life, celebrities airbrushed beyond recognition, one thousand and one ways to get an orgasm, articles encouraging girls as young as thirteen to go out dressed in little more than a hanky, a one thousand five hundred dollar scarf advertised as a wise investment, girls ‘dressed’, posed and hotographed for the pleasure of perverted old men and pubescent little boys, 20 question quizzes that will determine the rest of your life, miracle diets and miracle creams. That’s not life that’s a glossy magazine. Life’s is an amazing, beautiful, eye opening journey, a learning process through which we gather the knowledge and experience required to pass from this life into the next. Youth in revolt will evoke thought, feeling and discussion from start to finish, life will never be a glossy magazine but this, is progress. This is YOUTH IN REVOLT.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

Letter from the editors Oh February, here you are in all your glory and how glorious you are. We hope you kids have been making the most of this beautiful weather by getting up to all sorts of trouble, we certainly have. Don’t forget to play it safe though, look after your buddies and always keep a pack of rubbers handy, aye? Just playn’. No but seriously, some of you probably should keep a pack of rubbers handy at all times considering some of the sex confessions we got this issue. Youth in Revolt readers are quite the fans of said fornication in all forms, huh? We love you guys, we’re always in stiches over the stuff we’re sent, from sex confessions to hilarious opinion pieces. You got enough phrase last issue though, no? Sorry we just can’t help ourselves ...and apparently neither can you guys! Ok, ok we’re done, we guess it is the month of love or whatever, so you’re probably all at it like rabbits. Nicole is just a bitter singleton, ignore her. So what else have we got instore for you kids this issue? Where to begin, where to begin? We’ve got some summer skin and fashion tips, some hysterical reads, all the Hype you can handle and maybe some more, Pokemon and Epic Meal Time. We can’t help it, the urge is too great, trying. To. Resist. Nup, Can’t do it... AND EVEN MORE JUST BEYOND THIS PAGE. What are you waiting for? We’ll see you on the other side. Before we sign off though, on a more serious note, we are about to start making some serious changes to the magazine and it’s going to drain our bank accounts and probably send us both to a homeless shelter. It’s been a year now, and we really need to get some advertising into the magazine and find some sponsors. So if any of you know of anyone who might be interested, or might be able to help us out, let us know! We would appreciate it greatly! It’s hard being a magazine editor who can’t even afford a cheeseburger. youthinrevoltmag@live.com.au Stay Revolting. Olivia & Nicole xox

Eleanor Woodley/Eighteen/Manchester/Leo www.femaledelinquent.tumblr.com What do you do? At the moment I am surviving. There are things I’d like to do that I am not able to at the moment like; setting up my own clothing line- that’s a huge dream of mine. Do you have any animals? I do! I have three dogs. They are a handful, but all lovely and make me happy. Who’s your favorite artist? Diane Arbus will always be one of my favorite artists for so many reasons. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? I honestly don’t know? Because although I act like a bit of a dickhead, I am a very accepting and open minded person. What’s the biggest secret someone has told you? People don’t tell me a lot of secrets- apart from my mum. My mum tells me everything, a little too much sometimes. What’s your favorite thing to blog about? Personal style, aesthetics from film, feminist things, queer things etc. Do you think you’re a Indigo/Crystal child? I had to google that, they are like super enlightened kids right? In that case no, I am constantly learning the same as everyone else. How do you want to die? That’s a tad morbid haha! Erm, I try not to think about my own death. What revolts you? The patriarchy. What’s your favorite sound/smell/touch/taste? Pizza/pizza/pizza/pizza. (I like pizza) If you started a revolution what would it be? Feminism is a revolution and something I like to think I am part of. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? To quote Paulie from Lost and Delirious; “Rage more.” What’s something you know you do differently than most people? I sing to my pets? Or do a lot of people do that?? Are you sick in any way? I have diagnosed depression. Spit or swallow? Not really a fan of giving blowjobs as I am not really a fan of the penis. I am more of a vagina lover. Are you a virgin? If not, how old were you when you lost your virginity? I don’t really believe in the concept of virginity, but I had my first sexual experience at 15, my first penis in vagina encounter at 16, and my first girl on girl sex also at 16. Do you remember the first time you came? Yes it was when I was 16 with this guy, I was dating who I didn’t really like but was a good fuck. I remember I got really light headed and nearly passed out. 8

What do you do? I am an art student at the Australian academy of design and a singer/performer. Do you have any animals? Yes I have two rats. Who’s your favorite artist? Paul Yore, his art reminds me of the way my mother decorated our houses, but he has a lot of dicks in his work. Vali Myers, because she is so beautiful and inspirational and she is an animal Queen like me. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done? Gotten period blood on a boys bed sheets when I was 14, I told him that I cut my leg. If that happened now I don’t know if i’d really care that much. What inspires you? Nature, animals, plants, magik, love, ancient civilizations, the occult, glitter, crystals and stones. Do you create? Yes I create because it helps me breathe I suffocate if I don’t create.

How do you want to die? I’m never going to die, I am immortal. What revolts you? The government and the Illuminati. Because they are trying to repress us so much that we become robots completely controlled and monitored. You know America came up with a new illness called Orthorexia Nervosa, which is an eating disorder of avoiding unhealthy foods. Like come on, they just want us to eat their GMO foods the will deform our kids. If someone gave you too much change at a store, and you knew they did, would you keep it? No, because I believe honesty is a good thing and I believe that what ever you do comes back three fold. If you started a revolution what would it be? Men have to take the contraceptive pill and women’s sanitary should be paid for by the government. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Age is inevitable! I believe I would be a child and an old wise woman at the same time. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Live with the animals. Are you sick in any way? I have a really bad liver, so sometimes when I drink I get pains like someone is holding onto my liver and giving it the hardest chinese burn they can. I have scoliosis, asthma, and really bad hay fever/allergies. What’s your fave sex position? On top, cause I’m in control. Are you a virgin? If not, how old were you when you lost your virginity? I’m not a virgin Iost my virginity when I was 13. Do you masturbate? No, I used to when I was single (but rarely).

TRICK or TREAT?

By Nicole Daphne wilson

Epic Meal Time Epic Meal Time is a Canadian YouTube cooking show known for creating extremely high-calorie meals. Generally out of meat products, particularly bacon, and including alcohol (especially Jack Daniel’s). It debuted in October 2010, and since then a new episode has been released every Tuesday. It is hosted by Harley Morenstein and a group of his friends. In 2011 Epic Meal Time won the Shorty award in the Food Category. Some of their creations include Fast Food Pizza, Angry French Canadian, The Double Kill, Massive Meat Log and Fast Food Sushi. These are also the names of the episodes in which they were created, so a simple search of any of these titles on YouTube will take you directly to the desired ep. My personal favourite Epic Meal Time ep would have to be their one year birthday episode. In this episode we see the fellas create a ‘birthday cake’ using 35 cheese burgers, 3 bacon weaves, 4 Dominos Meat Lovers pizzas, sauce, lots of cheese and then we see the boys proceed to deep fry the entire thing in beer batter. Did someone say heart attack? Who cares, not these guys. They may be a bunch of crazy fuckers, but god damn they are entertaining! Check them out. I don’t want to be responsible for any of you guys halfing your life expectancy, so I feel like I should be the one to advise you against trying any of their recipes at home. Only because I know they are definitely not going to advise against it themselves.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

i fink u freeky So once I was dating a guy, not for very long, but we had sex a couple of times but it was always very straight to the point, no foreplay sort of thing. Stick it in, make me cum fast etc. Anyway, some months later I was at a friend’s party and some of my friends who knew him kept asking me about his three balls? Everyone kept coming up to me and saying, “so, does he really have three balls?” And I was like, “um, what?” I was in total shock and still don’t know if it’s true. If I ever go there again I’ll make sure that I check, and every time I’ve had sex since then, I’ve made sure to have a good feel first. - Three’s a crowd So I had this fuck buddy for a while and one day I was feeling a bit cheeky and decided to text him suggesting a threesome. I don’t really know what I was expecting but a few hours later he replied saying he’d found a girl who was keen and that it was on for the next night. That night came and I started to have second thoughts but there was no going back now. We got down to business and at first it was mostly foreplay but then he started fucking the other girl from behind even though she kept pushing him away and trying to get back to me, and eventually she began to bleed. They cleaned it up and then it was my turn, he fucked me while she kissed me and touched me everywhere, it was crazy. Afterwards we chatted awkwardly, it was a night I’ll never forget. - Cheeky girl My ex boyfriend’s fetish was ass. Everything ass. He would finger my arse while he’d fuck me from behind, he would finger my arse while I was giving him blowjobs. He’d love to go down on my arse while he played with himself. He’d always come on my arse hole. I wouldn’t say it’s something that I’m really a fan of, but if it got him off- it got me off. - Ass cake So I have this friend who was dating this girl (yeah, we’ll call her that) for a little while and after a messy night out, they went back to his caravan to fuck. They were doing it for a while and the ‘girl’ could feel herself getting closer and closer to cumin’. With that, she pisses all over him and doesn’t even realize... Safe to say their relationship didn’t last much longer after that. - Golden shower One night me and my friends were at a mates house, drinking and watching tv, a close friend and I decided to go for a Maccas run and on the way we were talking about how we both wanted to get with one of the guys there. When we got back she made a move and they went to his room, me being quite drunk followed, stood in the door way and asked if I could join in on the fun. We ended up having a bit of a threesome, there was no actual intercourse but me and my friend got finger banged at the same time, which was a little weird but still fun. I will never forget that night and how we all took turns pleasing each other. - Sharing is caring

Hype By Nicole Daphne Wilson

canyouhearthis.co.uk One of the best music blogs we’ve stumbled across and the only one I (Nicole) read on a regular basis. I have found countless musical gems on this blog and they are solely responsible for the increase in how much music I download and how frequently I update my IPod. I used to neglect my IPod so much so that the music was outdated by at least two years and I could repeat the entire playlist three times over on a forty minute train ride to the CBD. Shameful. All I can offer them in return is my gratitude and this little shout out. Cheers for the tunes guys!

Donut Pool Float Who said you can’t have doughnuts during summer? This is actually so fucking adorable and anyone who says that they don’t want one is in our eyes a liar. Way to combine two of everybody’s favourite things, summer and doughnuts. Ah, just look at it in all it’s delicious doughnuty glory. $18 from www.urbanoutfitters.com

The MoistyPod The MoistyPod is another creative project of Nicole’s that sees her teaming up with our good friend Diarmaid Murray to create a comedic podcast. They have so far successfully recorded two episodes and make a point of apologising at the beginning of both, a tradition they both agree will probably stick. Diarmaid describes the podcast as ‘a podcast, but more accurately a discussion. Occasionally, a young woman with dreams sits down with a young man so that he can tear those dreams apart...or something along those lines.’ Nicole tends to disagree. Nicole does however agree with their ITunes description which reads; ‘Nicole and Diarmaid like to talk a lot. They would like you to listen. They would also like to apologise in advance if you choose to do so.’ And they both agree that everyone should take the podcast with a grain of salt, perhaps a box of popcorn and remember to always stay moist.

Sylvia Plath – Poems selected by Ted Hughes Sylvia Plath possessed one of the most commanding voices in the twentieth-century poetry world. Whilst alive she published one volume of verse, The Colossus and the acclaimed novel often referred to as the ‘The Sad Girl’s Bible’, The Bell Jar. After her suicide, Winter Trees, Crossing the Water and, most notably, the remarkable poems in Ariel brought her the same and recognition she so craved in life. Her estranged husband Ted Hughes has collated this small collection of her work as a testament to her talents. I’ve kept my copy in mint condition and it still smells of that new book smell, I love it.

Monster High Dolls Monster High Dolls are like equivalent of Bratz for the Alt girl (or guy). Super cute and super hip, they are the perfect present for someone who likes to collect kooky offbeat toys or knickknacks. There is a bunch of dolls to choose from but our favourites would have to be Ghoulia Yelps with her funky blue hair and her adorable spectacles, Skelita Calaveras with her crazy face paint, and Medusa’s son Deuce Gorgon with his snake infested green hair. Indulge your inner preteen outcast and jump on the band wagon.

Weird weekends Will you marry me Louis Theroux? But seriously. I have so much respect and admiration for this man. He’s funny, intelligent, witty, and manages to remain so calm and collected during some of the most enraging situations. From 1998-2000 Louis Theroux injected himself into the heart of some of America’s most interesting and shocking subcultures like Black nationalists, White supremacists and porn stars. The documentary series was titled ‘Weird Weekends’ and in it we watch Theroux subtly expose contradictions or farcical elements of some seriously-held beliefs of the communities he visits. Louis Theroux describes the aim of the series as; “Setting out to discover the genuinely odd in the most ordinary setting. To me, it’s almost a privilege to be welcome into these communities and to shine a light on them and, maybe, through my enthusiasm, to get people to reveal more of themselves than they may have intended. The show is laughing at me, adrift in their world, as much as at them. I don’t have to play up that stuff. I’m not a matinee idol disguised as a nerd.”

Esc You’ve all undoubtedly heard of and most likely consume on a regular basis some type of caffeinated beverage, whether it be a latte or some type of energy drink. Caffeine has become a first world staple, some people even swearing they can’t go about their normal daily routine without a hit, are we still talking about the same thing? Shrugs. But what happens when you need to relax? To take the edge off? No I’m not about to start ranting about how marijuana should be legalised, relax. Introducing calm in a can (say that 10 times really fast), more commonly known as ESC. How appropriate. Containing valerian root, chamomile, passion flower and tryptophan, Esc has been created to help you stay calm and in control. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and only 50 calories per can (that’s the same as an apple, impressive.) We discovered this intriguing creation at a 7/11 near our university last year, but you can purchase it online from their website www.escdrink.com

PLAY By Keith Nallawalla

Pokemon Adventures I haven’t played any new games lately so can’t write about those, but I got this box set of the Pokemon Adventures Manga for Christmas. And once you get used to reading the book backwards, it’s pretty cool. I’ve liked Pokemon since it first got big in Australia in 1999, but never got around to reading the Manga till now. It follows the story of the original Red / Blue video game rather than the tv series. The main character Red is a similar character to Ash and Blue is basically Gary Oak. Red goes around catching a bunch of Pokemon, filling his Pokedex and battles Gym Leaders and Team Rocket as well as several other ‘bad characters’. Red originally starts off with a Poliwhirl and gets a Bulbasaur from Professor Oak and ends up with a Pikachu as well. This explains why there was always so much Poliwhirl merchandise back in the day, it wasn’t really featured in the TV show at all so didn’t make much sense. The later comics in the set revolve around Yellow who is trying to find Red after he disappears after accepting a battle with the Elite Four. I haven’t read them all yet but I will soon. They are quite enjoyable for anyone who has played the original video games, and include a lot of locations and minor characters from the game. It should give you a decent nostalgia hit much quicker than replaying the whole games again from the start!

These places and characters live inside of me when I draw I let them out, their stories and secrets.” Let yourself be engulfed by the world Ammut Aisilinn creates in her works like we have.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

By Celia Edell

I’d like to first point out that these are just my opinions, and that they are coming from a place of solidarity and not of experience. I am not trying to speak for sex-workers - I am only trying to start a conversation! I think it’s necessary to actively think about these things in order to make any real shift in consciousness.

sex work

Sex Work is Real Work. We are constantly bombarded with the message that sex workers are troubled. Watching day-time television I have witnessed Dr. Phil repeatedly demonize sex work and those who participate in it. It’s dirty, and dangerous; they must have suffered as a child or lacked a fatherly figure. The two-dimensional stereotype attached to sex-work is ignorant and perpetuates a culture of violence against innocent people who are just doing their job (which there is and likely always will be a market for, I might add). There may be risks that come with a line of work which often requires secrecy and vulnerability (to some extent), but to assume that sex workers must be emotionally damaged or lack self-respect is dangerous. Stripping human beings of their agency as makers of their own lives actively victimizes them and encourages hatred of sex workers and all those who support the line of work. Where there is hatred, there is violence – more frightening, there is violence that is ignored by the public or dismissed as just “what they were getting themselves into.” And these consequences reach farther than just those who practice sex work. During the American election debates surrounding government subsidized contraception, Rush Limbaugh said that a woman who wants the government to pay for her birth-control is a slut and a prostitute in that she is trying to be paid to have sex (by the taxpayers). Limbaugh used the stigma surrounding sex work to undermine women’s voices – he capitalized on the demonization of prostitution in order to silence those women trying to gain equal opportunities in the work force. But women deserve their voices to be heard – and we deserve to make our own choices without fear of having them used against us violently or politically. Sex work is work. It’s real work. It’s a way to make a living, sometimes and for many people, it is a way out of the poverty trap into which they were born. That is not to say that sex work is always a “last resort” or that it is only ever for the money. I am hopeful that society may be moving in a direction which recognizes sex workers as people whose jobs are not all tragic. Strippers, prostitutes and porn-stars alike often enjoy their work - as can be seen in the film Magic Mike (sex-workers that like their job?! Who knew!) But the stigma attached to (particularly female) sex workers is still the butt of endless jokes and ridicule without enough representation (I can’t think of any female sex-worker film characters that are portrayed as more than a one-dimensional stereotype). Recognizing sex work as real respectable work is going to take a real shift in our public consciousness. It requires us to think before we make problematic comments or assumptions. It requires a more diverse and accurate portrayal of sex-workers in media, and less stigmatization on shitty day-time talk shows. Sex workers must be granted the right to demand space in society to define their own lives and experiences – they should be the ones discussing their work, not some pseudo-psychiatrist who has never walked mile in their heels before. The sexualisation of female bodies means that all women are seen as “whores” (Rush Limbaugh). This is problematic for two reasons: firstly, women are more than their bodies, and secondly, whores must no longer be viewed as lesser women or persons. All women are not whores, but all whores are human. When sex work is the chosen work of an autonomous person that is reason enough to respect it. www.ceedling.blogspot.com.au

“Procrastination is like Masturbation...” by Made Stuchbery

It is a sad fact of the human condition that, no matter how busy you are, no matter how fast those deadlines and due dates are pressing in on you, it seems that we always have time for a little procrastination. And in this last week, I seemingly have morphed into the Queen of the Late-Night-Boredom Cure. As I write this, I have fifteen emails blinking at me on my phone, and a 3,000 word assignment open on the desktop that was due last week that I still haven’t managed to complete and submit. Yet here I sit, in the dark, trawling through tumblr and checking the fridge every ten minutes. I know it’s bad for me: I can feel the empty calories from that pot noodle sandwich settling on my hips and my eyes burn from staring at the bright computer screen in the dark. But I just can’t stop. Procrastination is like any pleasurable addiction, it’s so bad it’s good. And how can something that feels so good possibly be so bad for you? Oscar Wilde once wrote about one of his favourite, illicit addictions: the cigarette. “You must have a cigarette. A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?” Transpose this to procrastination and there is my freshly borrowed thought for the month. As we all gear up to start a new year, a new semester of university or school, I present to you my shortlist of Top Procrastination gems. I hope they give you the same amount of pleasure and panic that they’ve given me. 1: Binge Eating. This will come as no surprise to any university student. You know the drill: a deadline is fast approaching. You ate dinner a mere 50 minutes ago. Yet the bright, white light of the refrigerator beckons you, calling you, and like the moth to the flame you a drawn to the white goddess of foodstuffs. We all know the drill: you wander to the fridge in a hungry comatose state. You open the fridge, you forage around only to be disappointed, closing the door and dragging your neolithic arms on the ground behind you. Ten minutes later you lower your expectations, open the door once again and decide that yes, that mushroom sitting in the fruit bin looks alright after all. To jazz this up a little bit, I suggest you play a game which my friends and I call “Cheese Surprise.” We all know that student life consists of eating a variety of foods fried in butter and served on toast. Cheese surprise consists of covering a foodstuff with a truck load of grated cheese, toasting it under a grill, and the person who first guesses what the food originally was doesn’t have to do the dishes. A guaranteed 30 minutes of fun for young and old!

2: Smoking. I’m taking a leaf out of Wilde’s book and taking a Marlboro Light out of the packet. Now, when I’m back home, smoking is pretty frowned upon (kudos to the governments Anti-Smoking Campaign; it kinda worked), but here in England, it’s weird if you don’t smoke. And what could be better than sitting in an old pub, nursing a pint of warm ale, reading your latest set reading for your literature class in one hand and drawing back on a sweet, smokey cigarette? The only trouble is, nicotine is addictive. Apparently. But when in Rome hey? I think the only reason that my last two assignments were submitted on time was because I spent three nights in a row, sitting up in the kitchen chain smoking whilst drinking red wine and exploring the existential themes and preoccupations of 18th century English literature. My lungs and liver may be in dire crisis but as long as I’m not failing, all is well. 3: Actual masturbation. I’m just going to let this one hang here. C’mon, if you haven’t, you’re clearly a liar or you’re an Asian medical student who is actually trying hard at university, unlike the rest of us. 4: The ‘weird’ section of Youtube. Now, we’ve all been there. You know how it goes. You might start off watching old episodes of Lano and Woodley online, which is fun. Hey, you’re re-living your childhood and distracting yourself from that 12am deadline which is creeping ever-closer. Nek minnit, it’s 4am, you’re covered in Pringles crumbs and your eyes are wide in horror as you find yourself watching episode after episode of My Strange Addiction and that girl eating a tampon. Once you start watching human beings eating the waste products of their own body, you know it’s time to step away from the computer and take a look at your life choices. I leave you now, in an attempt to complete my own assignments on time. Or at least make a blithe attempt to hand it in this month. I’ll leave you with my procrastination recommendations, and one final piece of advice: “Procrastination is like masturbation; it feels really good, and it’s great fun, but in the end you’re just fucking yourself. But that doesn’t stop us now does it?” From the desk of Made Stuchbery.

FACE IT By Mykayla Joy

diy

It

Simple Banana mask

Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste, then gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10-20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water.

Milk Mask

Make a mask by mixing 1/4 cup powdered milk with enough water to form a thick paste. Thoroughly coat your face with the mixture, let it dry completely, then rinse with warm water.

Mayo Mask

Gently spread the whole egg mayonnaise over your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Then wipe it off and rinse with cool water.

Yogurt mask

To cleanse your skin and tighten the pores, slather some plain yogurt on your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser

This cleanser is great for sensitive skin as it doesn’t over dry or leave skin oily! It lathers up nicely and does a great job of cleaning skin of all dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities. With its soft smelling scent, it is a pleasure to use. An added benefit of this radiant cleanser is that it contains soybean extract which is used to help bring out your healthiest glow! I definitely recommend it as a staple in any cleansing routine.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Purifying Mask

Hands down this is my favourite mask that I have ever brought. It’s cooling and calming qualities are so soothing and you can feel the product working deep in your pores. When you wash this clay mask off, your skin is now infused with almond oil, evening primrose and chamomile, and will feel softer and purified. Use this product 2-3 times a week when you want to have clear, moisturised, beautiful skin.

Bio-Oil

Bio-Oil is my multipurpose secret weapon! Nearly everybody knows that this gentle oil is used to Fade scars, stretch marks and everything in between, but what most people don’t know is how versatile this beautiful oil can be. After cleaning my skin before I go to bed, on some nights I like to drench my face in it. Although it can feel quite oily and sticky, by morning my skin has soaked up the oil and feels baby soft. Bio-oil can also even out skin tone and fix dehydrated skin. What I love most about it is if I’m out and about and my hair needs taming it works just like a serum. With its lovely scent of rose and being stored in a compact screw top bottle, it makes this Bio-Oil one of my go-to-anytime products.

Nivea, Crème

This thick, lushous cream is best used on people who have really dry skin, and have had no success in clearing it up. The rich lotion has been used for centuries and has been classified as being extremely similar to Crème de la ma which people swear is ‘the best moisturiser out’ but costs a small fortune. Some nights when I feel like I need a bit of a hydration boost I slather this all over my face. The texture can be quite wet even a while after it’s been rubbed in. Although it’s probably not suitable for people with oily skin, for day wear or as a regular moisturiser in the summer, for people who want a bit more hydration, this is the definite go to.

Drugs

Any drugs. Panadol, Panomax, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Codeine, oxycodone, Valium, Tranx. If you’ve got it or can get it, no judgement here. PMS can make you feel like a cement truck has run over your torso or like you’ve become temporarily bipolar for the duration of your cycle. PMS can make you feel physically and emotionally debilitated, it can come with migraines, diarrhoea, constipation, aches and pains, tears and mood swings that’ll cause your friends and family to avoid you like the plague. Calming music and candles (& drugs) About anything that can help you relax under normal circumstances is going to help you to relax, perhaps to a slightly less degree, when you’re on your period. Calming music and candles work for me, another commonly suggested one is a hot cup of tea or coffee, a blanket and a good book. Whatever it is that best helps you to relax will hopefully relax you enough that you can nod off for a couple of hours and hopefully wake up feeling a lot better.

Movies and chocolate (& drugs)

What girl doesn’t love chocolate? A craving that month, and really I haven’t met a girl who doesn’t but wish they had a legitimate reason for doing it. girl flick and let the water works roll on out, no

only grows stronger during that time of enjoy a good cry whilst on their period, That’s where movies come in, pick a soppy more need for apologies or excuses.

Heat pack (& drugs)

God bless everything for heat packs! Am I right? Oh these little creations are one of the best cures for cramps that doesn’t require popping a pill. I’d pop one anyway though, I don’t know, that’s just me. If you don’t have a heat pack already, I seriously suggest you get one, when there’s no Panodol in the house (we’ve all been there) it is a life saver.

Punching bag (& drugs)

Anyone else get the grumps on their period? Oh, everyone? Cool, thought as much. A punching bag, although I personally have not invested in one yet, seems like a reasonably good idea for reliving such negative feelings, no? It’ll definitely prevent some poor soul from getting caught in cross fire, just something to consider.

Male Companion (& drugs)

If you prefer a punching bag that can respond you should probably invest in a male companion, though I don’t know how lawful that is. We’re speaking purely verbal abuse of course. Maybe. If he’s well trained, he’ll kill you with kindness and cuddles during that time of month anyway, and any need to bring physical or verbal pain to anyone will soon melt away.

Headphones in, world out. by cam johns

David Bowie – Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) 1980 With the recent announcement of a new David Bowie album paired with the release of the first single from that album, my interest of all things Bowie spiked considerably. Despite the fact that his last true classic album was released over 30 years ago, the news of new material from this music legend still gets a rise out of me. The man of constant reinvention released 12 stellar and classic albums in a row, a feat that not many can claim. The last of these was the 1980 release of Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps). Following on from what has been dubbed the ‘Berlin Series’, he wanted to make a more commercially accessible album, considering that his previous few efforts had not met his high commercial standard, and he received his wish. With this album including two of the songs he is now known best for, ‘Ashes To Ashes’ and of course ‘Fashion’. But my favourite has to be the near 7 minute epic ‘Teenage Wildlife’. His voice has a harder edge to it than normal, almost performing it in frustration. It’s also one of the most expansive Bowie songs containing some great guitar work and a great slow and gradual build, accentuated by his vocal style. This is the album that new Bowie releases gets compared to, often garnering “his best since Scary Monsters.” but none have lived up to this moniker. An absolute gem of an album, and a great way to end his Golden Era of releases.

Villagers – Awayland

2013

Starting a new musical year is always tough. You tend to find albums from last year that you wish you had heard earlier and it being so early into the year, the amount of new releases is not really too high. Cue the sophomore album from Irish band Villagers. Fronted by singer songwriter Conor O’Brien, Villagers contains poetic lyrics, a great vocal delivery and just great and often extremely catchy melodies, all the hallmarks of the music I find myself drawn to. Their 2010 debut, Becoming A Jackal, showcased this well and the fact it reminded me of Bright Eyes was just an added bonus, if not a little distracting sometimes. ‘Awayland’ sees Conor experimenting with a slightly different sound, most specifically trying out some beats and samples, while still remaining true to his roots. The lead single, The Waves, is very reminiscent of something Zammuto would release. But by far my favourite track has to be the most recent single, ‘Nothing Arrived’, which I can actually see getting a bit notoriety. By far the catchiest melody Conor has ever created, this track contains piano, acoustic guitar, great vocals with great vocal harmonies and finally a great section of strings to end out the track. Everything this track tries is a hit, even down to the chorus. “I waited for something and something died, so I waited for nothing and nothing arrived.” This is an album perfect for fans of Bright Eyes and is a great start to this new year.

Alice, *P

art Two

Johnny slept on the ground where he had been pummelling himself earlier that night, and I sat in the car and watched over him. Matt and Jess had snuck off to ‘talk’, but who knows what they were really up to. When Sam finally wondered back to camp, I filled her in on what had happened and without saying much at all she ran off to her tent to sulk. I looked at Johnny fast asleep still covered in blood, I looked around to see if Matt and Jess were still missing, they were, I looked at Sam’s tent and I then looked up at the sky. How did this happen? How did we end up here? Are we really all that bad for each other? Sam doesn’t even like Matt and Johnny’s always cheating on Jess, this could still work out for the best. I dragged myself back to the car and slumped back into the passenger seat, who was I kidding? It was over. When I woke up the next morning everyone was packing up and no one had bothered to wake me. This time in the car Matt and Jess sat in the front and Me, Johnny and Sam rode in the back, Matt blasted the radio, no one spoke and no one complained. Not even Sam.

One by one Matt dropped us all back home, I was last. “Well I guess everything’s fucked now, huh?” He said as I got out of the car. “We can fix it.” I said “Not this Alice, you can’t fix this.” I opened my mouth but he was gone before I could form any words. I knocked on the door but no one was home so I climbed over the back fence, dropping all my stuff as I went, taking off my pants, kicking off my shoes, ripping my top off over my head and jumping into the pool in my backyard wearing only my underwear.

When I surfaced there he was, sitting on the roof of our bungalow like he’d never left. “Hello stranger.” “Tom?” I replied. “Why the tears?” “I don’t want to talk about it.” I said. He looked at me sternly and said “You have to get away from these people Alice.” I looked at him blankly and then I said “What are you doing back here Tom?”

62


YOUTH IN REVOLT

He stood up and removed his shirt, like he had done in front of me a million times before. The next thing I knew he jumped into the pool with me. When he surfaced he looked me straight in eyes and said “A very sad girl once told me that all she ever wanted was to mean something, to someone.” .... “I didn’t have the courage at the time but all I really wanted to do was hug her tightly and tell her that she was everything, she was everything to me.” I could feel my eyes filling up with tears again “Tom...” I started to say when he interrupted me “I’m not leaving without you this time Alice.” “I love you.”

Scott Ferry

www.scottferry.com

Full time artist and author Scott Ferry is old enough to have a lot of experience, but young enough at heart to creatively nurture the playful mind of a child, the mind he says he taps into to create his creations. Ferry does not consider himself to be belonging to any one nationality, but instead he says he belongs to nature, specifically ‘the dark woods’. Ferry’s inspirations include spirituality, alternate realities, magic, death, possession, childhood and the work of Osman Spare. Ferry says he creates “To explore my own mind and create doorways and connections with those things that I find important to my own experience.” and that as he creates he often falls into his artwork, entering into a subtle trance, like a ritual, opening a subconscious connection, at times calling on familiar spirits to aid in his working. Ferry has been creating since the age of 12 and uses water colour and pigment ink to bring his creations to life. When we asked Ferry why he creates he said “My artwork has become a medium for my theories, personal discoveries and interests.” We find Scott Ferry fascinating as both a person and an artist, and we hope you find yourself as intrigued and entranced by him and his work as we are.
