    Media.
    This is what we called Media Player – Pemain Media.Media adalah satu medium yang menjadi bahan bacaan / tatapan / tenungan / tekaan / kuiz / no ekor / kuda / sukan toto / sukan sihat / dan pelbagai lagi. Sungguh indah ronggi pongginya jika dapat kita saksikan kini.Sebagai sebuah medium ‘pemain’, media cukup kuat untuk menyampaikan maklumat / merasuk / mempengaruhi / memperdaya / menempelak dan pelbagai lagi. Namun, menjadi persoalan sosial kini apekah masih relevan untuk media ini dipercayai 200% (100% percentage yg sudah tidak relevan utk zaman ini)? Saya amat sedih lagi hiba apabila media arus perdana V6 ini sudah tidak relevan lagi utk dipercayai. Disini, saya telah menjumpai beberapa pembendaharaan kata yang berasal dari nenek moyang saya.Adalah menjadi tanggungjawab saya utk memperkayakan bahasa ibunda saya, tidak bahasa ayahanda saya kerana ayahanda saya mampu bercakap dalam 6 bahasa.

    Wartawanbaik – pencari berita / maklumat / cerita / cereka yg ilmiah utk masyarakat.
    Warsawanbabi – percari berita palsu / maklumat palsu / cerita palsu / cereka palsu utk masyarakat.

    Contoh ayat : ” Razani bin Rahim adalah seorang wartawanbaik yang bertugas di Jabatan Siaraya Kampung Bukit Setongkol. Beliau bertanggungjawab dalam memberikan maklumat kepada masyarakat di kampungnya mengenai keharmonian hidup berjiran.”

    Contoh ayat : ” Kulup Jaidin adalah seorang warsawanbabi yang bertugas di Jabatan Siaraya Kampung Bukit Setongkol. Beliau bertanggungjawab dalam menyebarkan berita palsu mengenai kejadian ragut dan lari di kampungnya yang mana ramai orang kampung sudah tahu perkara sebenar mengenai kejadian ragut dan lari itu dilakukan oleh segerombolan kambing.”

    Haha aku pun nak tergelak sama (seperti pembaca-pembaca lain) bilamana terlihat artikel mengenai PUNK di ricecooker ni. Alahai wartawan. Kamu tu sebenarnya yang menyebarkan fahaman songsang mengenai punk. Adakah kamu (wartawan) seorang PUNK? Pernahkah anda mencari (di internet mungkin, yelah zaman dah IT, nak cari maksud perkataan tak payah bukak kamus lagi, tanya saja kawan kamu si Mat Yahoo bin Pak Google) maksud PUNK?

    Correct me if im wrong. Tetapi setahu saya, punk merupakan suatu genre music sepertimana yang Siti Nurhaliza nyanyikan which is err idunnola balada? irama tradisional? nowadays modern r&b kut? dan apa yang kamu katakan sebagai kumpulan punk di negara ini seperti ‚ÄòPunk Rock‚Äô, ‚ÄòHardcore Punk‚Äô, ‚ÄòChaos Punk‚Äô, ‚ÄòPop Punk‚Äô, Punk Hop‚Äô, (huh punk hop??) ‘Skaters Punk‚Äô dan ‚ÄòMetal Punk‚Äô, itu adalah sub-genre kepada punk. Sebagaimana hardcore yang mempunyai post-hardcore, metal-core, math-core dan banyak core core nya. Tak cukup? nak bukti lagi? Okeylah korang dengar indie kan? (takkan tak dengar HUJAN kan media suka buat publisiti pasal diorang?) banyak juga cabangnya indie seperti indie-experimental (read:yeah yeah yeahs) itu semua hanyalah based on music. Saya tidak nampak kaitannya antara music dan upacara upacara yang kalian nyatakan diatas?

    Punk juga mempunyai fahaman atau ideologi mereka sendiri. Setahu saya punk adalah mereka yang ANARKI dan tidak ada kena mengena dengan isu kambing dan pemujaan (kalau saya salah sila betulkan) ?

    Saya tidak mengatakan bahawa saya mengetahui segala macam tentang punk, saya tidak meng claim saya punk. Tetapi saya mempunyai rakan punk. Saya dengar punk. Pakaian saya mempunyai sedikit unsur punk (dalam 20% to 30% kerana sering memakai hitam, hitam punk?) Ya mereka memang politikal. Mereka fuck government kerana tidak berlaku adil. Berat sebelah. Eksploitasi rakyat. Tetapi mereka tidak pula pergi menyembelih kambing hitam dan meminum darah kambing itu? Jadi apa tujuan utama anda (wartawan) menyelitkan isu kambing didalam artikel ini? Kalau black metal ke apa mungkin boleh.

    Punk is all about freedom. Punk menolak unsur pendiskriminasian didalam kehidupan seharian. Tolong ambil/ pinjam (curik jangan eh, nanti masuk mastika budak punk curik pemadam) pemadam dan padamkan pandangan anda mengenai punk dan kambing. Ianya tidak benar sama sekali! Siapa yang poser sebenarnya disini? Kami atau wartawan itu? Aku sedih bila tengok artikel sampah dalam Harian Metro ni. Kecewa. Jangan salahkan kami kerana FUCK media. Media mengeksploitasi muzik jujur!

    Aku sarankan korang bacalah artikel mengenai band-band ni dari The Star ke News Straits Times ke. Setakat ni, semua review diorang bertepatan gitu.

    \Aku teringin nak tengok band yang main punk dikir barat. Musik punk yg agak raw ditambah dengan bunyi gong dan gamelan, lepastu main gig pakai kain batik lepas (jangan pakai songkok nanti macam radhi OAG tak punk la). Terbaik siakk!

    Maaf jika terkasar bahasa tersalah tulis. Saya hanyalah seorang remaja yang meluahkan ketidakpuasan hati disini.

    Islamic street preachers
    From Boston to Lahore and beyond, the tentacles of taqwacore – aka Islamic punk rock – are spreading. And it’s giving disenfranchised young Muslims a voice, says Riazat Butt

    * Riazat Butt
    * The Guardian,
    * Saturday April 28 2007
    * Article history

    There can’t be that many female playwrights who are deaf, punk and Muslim, so Sabina England is something of a find. With a lurid Mohawk and leather jacket slathered with slogans, she looks every inch the rebel and has an attitude to match.

    Sabina, who says she lives in the “shitty midwest of the United States” or the “HELL-HOLE OF BOREDOM AND YUPPIES”, is part of a subculture that, until a few years ago, existed only on paper.

    The Taqwacores – a novel about a fictitious Muslim punk scene in the US – has spawned an actual movement that is being driven forward by young Muslims worldwide. Some bands – such as the Kominas – have a cult following. Others, such as Sabina, are virtually unknown. In a brief email exchange, she lays out some harsh truths.

    You’re a playwright. What do you write about?

    “I write plays about fucked up people in fucked up situations, because we’re all fucked up human beings that live in a fucked up society. People need to quit whining and shut up and realise that we’re all freaks, whether we admit it or not.”

    Where are your ideas from?

    “Being a deaf woman from an Indian Muslim family growing up in both England and the US, I’ve never felt I fit in or belonged anywhere. So I was always forced to be an outsider, and because of this, I’d just watch people and observe their actions and words. I guess a lot of my ideas come from my alienation and anger.”

    How well known is the taqwacore phenomenon where you are?

    “Muslims around here would rather act like a model minority and don’t really want to rattle anybody’s chain. I really want to move to New York City, if I can get my plays produced there. Unfortunately it seems many theatre companies are too scared to do my works, or think I only cater to Indians and Pakistanis and won’t attract white people. But they’re fucking wrong, and they can’t see beyond racial boundaries. Fucking worthless piece of shites.”

    What does taqwacore mean to you?

    “It means being true to myself, having my own faith, and interpreting Islam the way I want to, without feeling guilty or being looked down at by other Muslims.”

    What is the future for taqwacore?

    “It’s gonna get bigger. A lot of Muslim kids are tired of being told what to do, how to think, what to believe in, and how to act, by their parents. There are ‘the angry muslim kids’ who wanna grow beards and pray five times a day, and then there are the OTHER ‘angry Muslim kids’ who wanna get drunk and say a huge big ‘fuck you’ to the Muslim population. Or maybe they just don’t care and wanna sit at home and not think about Osama’s video speeches about how America is the Great Satan.”

    How her words would fare with Michael Muhammad Knight, author of The Taqwacores and an unwitting idol to the young and restless, is anyone’s guess. Knight, who is 29 and lives in New York with his dog Sunny – “not as in Sunni Muslim” – downplays his achievement of single-handedly inspiring this subculture that has produced artists such as the Kominas, Secret Trial Five, Vote Hezbollah, Al-Thawra, 8-Bit and Diacritical.

    “There was a scene already,” says Knight modestly, whose next novel will be titled Osama Van Halen. “I just gave it a name. There were kids out there, doing their thing. I don’t think of it as a movement, though, just a group of friends supporting each other.”

    Knight wrote the book to deal with his own issues. He converted to Islam as a teenager and admits he “burned out” from being so religious. “I was so intense. I felt Islam was so black and white and there were no grey areas. These Muslim kids, who are punks, they are in these grey areas.”

    The kids he refers to have all devoured Knight’s work, some taking it literally.

    “One kid,” he says, “thought the book was non-fiction and thought that stuff in the book actually happened. He got in touch. He said if it wasn’t real, that he would make it real.” He sounds worried by the suggestion that his book will be a manifesto for Muslim punks. “If the scene develops, I don’t want it to be based on my book.”

    The words stable, door, horse and bolt spring to mind. Some Muslims are deeming his book to be nothing short of a revelation. “When I read The Taqwacores,” says Basim Usmani, frontman of The Kominas, “all my reservations about Islam melted away.”

    Usmani was born in New York and moved around the US when he was growing up. “I had this identity that stretched way further back than these disenfranchised white kids I was hanging out with, but they were the ones who showed me the most respect. I entered America where I was weird and, when I went back to Pakistan, I was weird there too. I was too Pakistani to be American and too American to be Pakistani.”

    His aggression was ongoing, although he freely admits his rage didn’t come from social dynamics. “In Boston I was middle class. In Pakistan, where I am now, I am definitely upper class. But the poverty here is intense and that makes me angry.”

    Basim first played with Boston-based outfit Malice In Leatherland, supporting horror punk band the Misfits. It was during this time that he heard about Knight’s book.

    “I read the book and I’m amazed. I send him an email and he called. I saw a lot of myself in it. Sometimes I feel like I’m living in a story.” Neither he nor his taqwacore comrades confess to embracing the more debauched antics of the novel – which has one character urinating over the Qur’an and then reading from it and a female Muslim veil-wearing punk, performing oral sex, onstage, in front of 200 people.

    Understandably, Usmani was nervous approaching Shahjehan Khan, also in the Kominas, about the book. “I didn’t know how he would react, he’s not punk, but he was cool about it. He read it in one day. You could say it was a catalyst for the Kominas.” Their songs are irreverent and un-PC. His favourite track, he says with a snigger, is “I Want A Handjob” – a jibe at Pakistani rockers Junoon (who launched a Muslims For Bush campaign for the 2004 elections).

    Usmani left the US just as the Kominas were breaking through into mainstream culture. But he has a new band – the Dead Bhuttos, a variation on the Dead Kennedys (who released their first single through the independent record label Alternative Tentacles, the very label that picked up Knight’s book for distribution).

    A future project, hopes Usmani, will be a Punjabi version of the Billy Bragg song There Is Power In A Union. “I’d like it to be a song for the Pakistani workers ‘cos they don’t really have one,” he muses.

    The Kominas, currently on a gigging hiatus, will tour later this year in North America. “It seems weird to leave just when we were on the brink. If I’d stayed then I would have been playing to sympathetic white liberals. I didn’t want that. In Pakistan, people want to rebel against the police and religious authority and punk is the perfect way to do that.”

    He’s put a downpayment on a bus and decorated it with the shahadah [the Muslim declaration in the oneness of God]. “I have no idea how we’re going to get it through customs.”

    Meanwhile, Khan is in Boston mixing the Kominas debut album: “We’ve put some EPs out but this is our first official release. There will be remixes of our old stuff like Suicide Bomb The Gap.”

    Khan says he looks like a typical engineer – with glasses and a goatee – and comes from a comfortable, middle-class background. But he appreciates what taqwacore has done for him. “I was like, where has this book been all my life? None of us know where taqwacore is going or what’s going to happen. It is a subculture that could influence culture in general. It’s nice to be part of something at the beginning.”

    One of the newest recruits to the taqwacore scene is Secret Trial Five, from Vancouver. Lead vocalist Sena Hussain, 25, took her inspiration directly from the Kominas. “We saw them play and we were all into punk music anyway. We haven’t had a chance to rattle some cages, we only got together last summer, but I expect we will. That’s the point of punk.”

    Proposed title tracks include Hey, Hey, Guantanamo Bay and Emo-hurram, a pun on the first month of the Islamic calendar. And, in a male-dominated culture, she thinks they will face challenges from all sides. “It’s another thing that drives us,” she says, “Muslim women are seen as helpless and oppressed. We want to prove that wrong. I used to sport a mohawk, I don’t now, but we will totally play up the punk thing.

    “There’s so much animosity towards Muslims and we need a dissenting voice to say ‘fuck you’ to people who pigeonhole us.” Hussain, who is looking for a new guitarist, adds: “It’s only fitting that we identify ourselves as taqwacore, that’s where we got our inspiration from, and I think that’s the way the genre will grow – and I hope it does.”

    Wow..easy bro easy..pick up yourself one of your favourite punk band, then cut n’ paste an interesting interview with them here..My current favourite melodic HC band is MERDA from Brazil! Well, above here’s a cut n’ paste interview that got nothing to do with HC thrash, here’s an interview with The Vandals..easy boss easy..just cut n’ paste..woo hoo!! Interview by Pijan (sorry! the interviewer’s name accidentally as same as what friends used to call my name!) Shit!

    Performed September 4th, 1996 by John at the Black Cat in Washington, DC. Interviewed are Warren Fitzgerald (guitar), Joe Escalante (bass), and Brooks Wackerman (drums). Singer Dave Quackenbush was busy being massaged.

    Pijan: Mind if I ask you guys a few questions I have written down?
    Warren: The fact that you have questions puts you in the top five percent of interviewers.
    Pijan: What does Bob Dole think of the Vandals?
    Warren: Bob Dole loves The Vandals!!
    Joe: I don’t see any reason why Bob Dole would not like The Vandals. The Vandals like Bob Dole.
    Pijan: Are you going to vote for him?
    Joe: I’m going to vote for Bob Dole. I don’t know about the other guys in the band. (To Brooks) I don’t think he’s registered.
    Warren: Well, he don’t have a driver’s license. I can’t imagine he’s registered.
    Brooks: I can’t vote.
    Joe: Ever since Pat Buchanan dropped out, I’ve been limited in my choices.
    Warren: I’m going to vote for Frank Zappa.
    Pijan: Any stories about the humble beginnings of the Vandals?
    Joe: We used to play for people over 21 and it was really bad.
    Pijan: Where at?
    Joe: At bars. We gave that up.
    Warren: We gave that up because we realized the youth of today was about today’s youth so we said OK.
    Joe: The youth of today turned us on to the youth of today.
    Pijan: So what boring, lame-ass questions do you get asked all the time?
    Warren: The exact one you just asked.
    Brooks: That’s like ‘what’s your favorite color.’
    Warren: That’s a self-referential question. This is the new worst kind of question: if John Lennon and Jerry Garcia got in a fight, who would win?
    Joe: Ian McKaye!!
    Warren: That’s the new kind of worst question ever.
    Pijan: Did you leave anyone out on your list of people to make fun of on your new album (The Quickening)? You got Agent Orange, Muslim fundamentalists, teachers, vegans…
    Warren: Now you’re in the top three percentile because of the fact you’ve heard the new record.
    Joe: And you‚Äôve put together a theme. We didn‚Äôt make fun of… uh… Jesus or Ronald Reagan.
    Warren: ‘Cuz they’re the same person.
    Joe: No religions we thought we’d meet anyone in.
    Warren: And that’s not making fun of that religion (Islam).
    Joe: “Allah” (off The Quickening). Dave is actually interested in that religion.
    Warren: All you have to do is look around you, really. That’s my answer. There’s so much left to make fun of.
    Joe: Exactly.
    Pijan: What’s your definition of a sellout band?
    Warren: Well, that’s a good question.
    Joe: Goldfinger!!
    Warren: That’s a one-word answer.
    Joe: Goldfinger, because here‚Äôs what they did. They‚Äôre a perfect example. I don‚Äôt know what kind of music they really like, but they were playing… Chilli Pepper, fucking, metal funk rock.
    Warren: Faith No More metal funk.
    Joe: All right, now this seemed to be where their hearts were, but when it failed as a commodity, they broke up and jumped on the punk-ska bandwagon. I mean, do they really like that kind of music? The guy’s got a Bad religion sticker on his guitar, but anyone can buy one of those. I don’t know. Maybe all of a sudden they got bonked on the head and decided they like punk rock, but if they didn’t get bonked on the head and lose their memory and like punk rock, then I think they sold out their musical tastes to make money from a current trend. And they went straight to a major label.
    Warren: Right. That’s why I respect a band like Quiet Riot. Metal’s fucking down the toilet, but they’re still hashing out in the clubs doing their some rocking set.
    Brooks: They’re just waiting for it to cycle.
    Warren: Absolutely. They’re just waiting for the fucking wave to come back.
    Brooks: Which it will. Give it two years.
    Warren: “Sellout” is a tricky thing. A lot of people perceive a sellout as a band that’s popular. ut it’s not that simple. There’s a lot of bands that are popular I wouldn’t consider sellouts at all.
    Pijan: Let’s say Green Day and The Offspring.
    Warren: No, I’d say neither of those bands are sellouts.
    Joe: Neither band’s a sellout.
    Warren: I have respect for both of those bands. It’s like they won the lottery. I like to see punkers win the lottery.
    Pijan: It could be you tomorrow.
    Joe: No, that will never be us… we don‚Äôt buy the tickets.
    Pijan: So why did you move to Nitro from XXX?
    Joe: Oohh, that‚Äôs a good question. That‚Äôs like saying why did you move to the U.S. from fucking… Canada.
    Warren: That’s like saying why did you move to the U.S. from a torture chamber.
    Joe: It’s just like that. Why did you move out of the torture chamber that you had to pay high rent in?
    Warren: Look, I don’t want to name any names, but one label completely sucks shit and one’s really cool. You do the math.
    Pijan: How did you guys get involved with “The X-Files”?
    Warren: That’s a good question too.
    Joe: We‚Äôre from Hollywood. We have our Hollywood connections. I worked in television the last four years–I‚Äôm a lawyer. We knew the executive producer, he likes punk rock, he likes to be wacky, and we got on. We‚Äôll be on ‚ÄúFriends‚Äù next year.
    Pijan: What kind of lawyer are you?
    Joe: I’m an entertainment lawyer. I used to work for CBS, but when I started getting too busy with the band, I quit.
    Pijan: So how much time does that take up?
    Joe: Well, I can review a contract while being interviewed by a punk fanzine. I just kinda do it for…
    Warren: Money.
    Joe: Yeah, money. I’ve been doing it for TV, and now that we’ve started our record label, which is Kung-Fu Records by the way, I can still make money by doing it, so I do it.
    Warren: Joe has a talent and a skill, and I don’t see what’s wrong with anyone using that.
    Joe: And I have a gift to give to the punkers.
    Warren: Absolutely. Like I’m a contortionist and he’s a lawyer, we all have those special things we do.
    Pijan: What does he (Brooks) do?
    Warren: He’s a drummer.
    Joe: He reads Metal Edge magazine.
    Brooks: Sure do. With pride. And I hate white people.
    Pijan: You’re kind of screwed, aren’t you.
    Brooks: It’s OK to hate my race.
    Warren: Isn’t it ironic.
    Pijan: Don’t you think? What do you think of punk today? What are some of the bands doing a good thing?
    Warren: The Bouncing Souls are my favorite punk band out right now.
    Joe: I like the Bouncing Souls.
    Brooks: No Doubt’s my favorite punk band.
    Joe: I like Lagwagon and…
    Warren: Mr. T Experience.
    Joe: Mr. T Experience kicks ass.
    Warren: There’s a lot of good music out there, what can I say.
    Pijan: Is any member of the band married to or dating a member of the Lunachicks?
    Warren: (Laughs) Is one of us married to or dating a member of the Lunachicks.
    Joe: I’m going out with Jake.
    Warren: No, but he have compatible genitals.
    Pijan: Are you guys getting any more agitated in your old age?
    Joe: You want agitation, go visit our t-shirt booth. That guy’s bitter.
    Warren: You want agitation, go visit our singer. He also has a great knack for picking out something to hate about everyone: “I hate the way you breathe, stop doing it.
    Brooks: You’d never realize how much of an ass he is.
    Joe: Brooks is the brunt of most of it.
    Warren: Brooks is the focus of most of his agitation, as you so eloquently put it.
    Brooks: He does not mean well at all.
    Warren: At least I mean well.
    Brooks: Dave Quackenbush–thumbs down. (Laughs)
    Pijan: I’ll be sure and tell him if I see him.
    Brooks: He already knows.
    Warren: He’s well aware.
    Pijan: I found he looks a lot like Lee Harvey Oswald on the inside to “The Quickening” cover.
    Warren: Yes, he does, actually. It’s really strange. We brought a BB gun with us on tour and he picked it up and it was just like the picture off Time magazine.
    Brooks: Who’s Lee Harvey anyway?
    Warren: Who’s Lee Harvey Oswald?
    Joe: That’s Brooks who asked that question.
    Warren: That’s a good question. He’s an invisible bunny rabbit who’s seven foot tall.
    Joe: Everyone wants to know who really is Lee Harvey Oswald, but we never will know because he was tragically struck down in his youth.
    Warren: Ever heard of Jack Ruby?
    Brooks: no.
    Warren: Ever heard of JFK?
    Brooks: Yes.
    Warren: Ever hear that he got shot?
    Brooks: Yeah.
    Warren: All right. Well, he was the guy who got blamed for it.
    Joe: But everybody knows who really did it.
    Warren: You know who really did it?
    Joe: The mysterious hoboes.
    Warren: No.
    Joe: Dweezil Zappa?
    Warren: Arsenio Hall. Things that make you go hmm… eh? Think about that for a while. These aren‚Äôt jokes, just things that make you go hmm.
    Pijan: So how often are you guys on the road each year?
    Warren: We’re going on tour 26 weeks this year. So figure that out, if there’s something like 200 weeks in a year, then we’ll be on tour three-quarters of the time of those 200 weeks.
    Pijan: So what do you do with you free time when you get any?
    Warren: I‚Äôm reading two books right now: Metamogical Themists: Search For Mind And Pattern…
    Joe: And Get In The Van by Henry Rollins. (Laughs)
    Warren: The other one’s a coloring book.
    Pijan: So do you consider Mr. Rollins on your list of sellouts?
    Joe: He makes Goldfinger look like Fugazi.
    Warren: That, my friend, is a very funny statement. I don’t know, man. His anger seems so contrived, he gets mad about the silliest things and writes poetry about it. Did you hear the one poem about bank tellers and shit? It’s just trivial nonsense.
    Joe: It’s very profound.
    Warren: “And then, my friend, you die. And then, my friend, you die.”
    Pijan: A quick question about one of your songs: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” Was that a subtle crack at Bad Religion in there?
    Joe: That‚Äôs an homage to their fucking… stylistics to the punk rock styling.
    Warren: Actually, it was more of a precognitive kind of thing saying that by using every big word we can in the song, we’ll eventually come to that. I think, actually, around the turn of the century, they will actually do that song and get royalties from it, or Disney will.
    Joe: We pay royalties to Disney for that. We keep gate prices down. By contributing to the publishing income.
    Warren: Instead of $35.00, it’s $34.99 thanks to us.
    Pijan: Where do you stand politically, or do you?
    Joe: Republican. I want people to run the country that I would never hang out with. And Bill Clinton is someone I might hang out with. So get him the fuck outta there. Put people in there that are just robots that are like mean dads, just fucking whip everyone into shape.
    Warren: it’s the cool boss syndrome.
    Joe: Yeah, the cool boss syndrome; you got a cool boss, the company’s going down the toilet.
    Warren: I like Jerry Brown.
    Joe: People who tell the truth, that’s what I like. Jerry Brown tells the truth.
    Warren: Jerry Brown could be a right president.
    Joe: Pat Buchanan tells the truth.
    Warren: Bob Kerry, I like him too.
    Brooks: Crackhead Bob.
    Joe: Kenneth Keith Kallenbach.
    Pijan: Kenneth Keith Kallenbach for president?
    Warren: We‚Äôre friends with Kenneth Keith Kallenbach. I produced a record of his that‚Äôs yet to be released. It‚Äôs fantastic–at the forefront of retard rock, and if that‚Äôs what you‚Äôre into… oh my God, it‚Äôs a cornucopia of goodness in that sense.
    Pijan: Any last words to the punks of America?
    Joe: If you’re reading this zine, don’t vote. It’s a waste of trees.

    pebendaaa nya reporter ni. sal tu la orang melayu jadi mundur. Punk x main la kambing-kambing ni. ni satu hal lagi law dah nak jadi poser tu jangan la wat benda-benda kufur. Korang la yang memburukkan nama-nama underground group. Coz tu band-band underground payah nak kuar ke kancah mainstream kat malaysia ni. Punk tak seperti yang korang sangka, ia menentang peraturan. tapi dalam menentang peraturan itu perlu ada satu lagi peraturan yang direka sendiri bagi membimbing kita. Punk sebenarnya ‘askar kecik’ dan menentang kerajaan yang dia benci. Punk tak jahat.

    I am anti-flag,
    I am anti-Chaous
    Don’t know what I want but I know how to get it
    I wanna destroy passer by
    cause I wanna be Anarchy…

    Anarchy for the UK
    it’s coming sometime and maybe
    I give a wrong time stop a traffic line
    your future dreams is a shopping scheme
    Cause I wanna be Anarchy…

    How many way to get what you want
    I used the best
    I used the rest
    I used enemy
    I used Anarchy
    Cause I wanna be Anarchy

    And I wanna be Anarchist
    and get piesced destroy

    beb, aku dah lama tak usha web ni.. gile la… makin banyak pulak cerita… dari tahun 2005 smpai 2010..

    dah berapa tahun tak dengar cerita tentang scene underground masuk surat khabar atau pun majalah. wartawan dah penat kot.

    apa¬? pun aku nak ucapkan selamat menyambut bulan ramadhan pada semua budak¬? underground yg dah lama terkubur skrg ni..
    rindu siot kat korang.

    dan selamat bertaubat pada semua WARTAWAN¬? celaka yg suka fitnah kitorang dulu, termasuklah wartawan yg bernama AZMI dan ZAINUDIN yg pernah fitnah aku dalam akhbar METRO AHAD.

    haish… bile la nak ade gig mcm dulu.. nanti kalau aku nak kawin nanti aku ingat nak bersanding kat gig la.. insya’allah aku akan buat..

    akhir kata aku sekali lagi pada WARTAWAN¬? celaka, jangan sesekali korang nak pandai2 tuduh, fitnah dan buat cerita semata2 untuk hangatkan cerita dan nak dapat gaji bonus. kalau korang takde keje, meh ikut aku buat biznez. walaupun aku punk, sekurang¬?nya aku lebih terpelajar dari korang. aku salah seorang director dari 2 company manpower, 6 company construction, 3 company supply pasir dan lori, 2 company barangan import dari kashmir, dan mcm¬? lagi. jadi tolong jangan pandai¬? nak judge orang takde masa depan dan perosak negara.

    bagi aku punk bukan perosak, tapi salah satu pergerakan yg menegakkan suara rakyat yg ditindas oleh kuasa besar.
    jadi kalau kita nak bersuara, kita kenalah ada kuasa jugak.
    sebab tu aku cuba sedaya upaya sampai jadi mcm ni semata¬? untuk tutup mulut diorang. harap korang semua jangan salah anggap.

    yang benar : HASHARIENAZ

    P/S: harap dapat jumpa korang semua.. rindu dowh..

    1.media=senjata untuk=
    2.kerajaan=berpelurukan=
    3.undang-undang=mempengaruhi=
    4.diri sendiri=sekiranya terpengaruh
    5.dunia=mewah=
    6.ilusi=musuh umat manusia paling ketat

    tiada istilah punk jika benar-benar punk(hanya ungkapan) dan tidak salah jika berpegang pada ideologi yang betul(berdasarkan al-Quran/Holy Quran)
    jika betul-betul menuntut ilmu(apa-apa tanpa sempadan) kita akan jumpa juga kebenaran yang sebenar-benar kebenaran.
    kerana manusia semua dilahirkan sama tak kira:-
    -tempat
    -golongan
    -kaum
    -bangsa
    -kaum
    -negara
    -agama

    semua dilahirkan dengan satu misi penting

    mencari kebenaran

    benar tak?

    sayangi setiap umat manusia dan makhluk di bumi

    dan untuk manusia yang taksub dengan golongan-golongan di atas tadi

    mereka antara dua golongan iaitu ‘sedar’ dan ‘tak sedar'(golongan yang terpengaruh dengan golongan ‘sedar’) iaitu golongan-golongan Pencabar Tuhan Yang Esa
    kerana:-

    1.berani menjalankan aktiviti munafik atau fitnah(media cth. mastika,Metro,Televisyen dan lain-lain)

    2.menyebarkan berita/fahaman dakyah(ideologi zionist dan israel(bukan Jewish)

    3.dibarisi pemimpin-pemimpin pembohong/penjenayah yang berlapis2.

    4.mencari kebebasan melepasi sempadan agama(terutamanya diri sendiri)

    5.berusaha melupakan kita pada akhirat(siapa lagi?? DUNIA)

    6.melahirkan golongan ‘freethinker'(kejayaan terbesar syaitan dan iblis)

    perkataan punk tak salah jika ianya dilandasan yang betul..

    ‘the world has changed’

    maaf jika penerangan ini sukar difahami..
    tetapi inilah tulisan jujur semampu saya

    dan alam semulajadi tak pernah menipu..

    menuntut ilmu biar sampai ajal,
    bukan sampai menara gading..

    peace be upon all humans!

    i love all of you!
