    Q: “If things were different and you had been welcomed into MEChA, do you see the direction of your life having been very different? Was there space to be politically and socially involved in that Chicano community and be part of a punk scene later on? Or do you think that being drawn to punk has something to do with sensing the role of “outsider” among your own people?” 

    Alice: “Let me clarify that punks are my own people, as are women, as are Chican@s, as are gays, as are millions of other human beings with whom I see eye to eye. Gronk, Diane Gamboa and Art Undertaker all managed to create punk art/music and be Chican@s, so there are no limitations as far as I am concerned. We do not have to make choices that are defined exclusively by being punk, or Chican@, or feminist, or vegetarian. That is separatist mentality. If we think that way, those who seek to oppress us won’t have to bother to divide and conquer, we will have divided and conquered ourselves.

    Also, I don’t need things to be different, I don’t have any regrets. Life is full of detours and those detours are unexpected opportunities.”

    Excerpt from a July 2013 interview for a student working on their PhD.

    I am still in awe of this amazing tattoo by @Saldamando for Marcus Kuiland-Nazario (someone I’ve always looked up to.) I can’t express how humbled and honored I am to have my image be a permanent part of Marcus’s body.

    Trashing of the Troubadour and the Elks Lodge St. Patrick’s Day show. I want to clarify that as far as I know, there is no “riot” footage contained in any of the clips that will be shown. The films are of concert footage. So LAPD - stand down. ~ Alice
