Q: WHAT DOES D.I.Y. MEAN?
A: well, everyone has their own opinion about this and no one is right or wrong. all i can tell you is what i think. i would say DIY means (to me), being socially and politically aware. DIY means not dealing with larger businesses. DIY means not having a booking agent. DIY means not playing shows that cost more than 5$ at the door unless there are 6+ touring bands or something and not playing 21+ shows or clear channel venues or even venues that have bad politics, like shitty clubs that let racist bands play etc. i would say DIY still retains a little of the core meaning. such as, making your own records, shirts and patches. DIY means not being afraid to take chances and go on tour to lands unknown with no money and no idea of what is out there. DIY means not having $30 hooded sweatshirts. DIY means inviting kids to stay at your house and cooking them food and having the same thing done for you when you get to their town. i would like to think that most people who call themselves DIY believe the things i do. i doubt it. the term is used too widely and by anyone with a fucking myspace account. i would like to think all DIY punks have an interest in making the world a better place. community building is the key. it's not the punks vs. the people. it's the poor people and the oppressed peoples, the animals and women and minorities and "weirdos", "crazies", and "criminals" vs. the powerful and rich 5% of people the rule the world with greedy intent.
