For the past five years, I have been under the influence of hardcore. For the first time in my life, I feel part of something larger. It was Allen (boyfriend, best friend, and partner in crime) who introduced me to the scene -- I was immediately hooked. We would go to shows and meet new people and listen to new music, but the best part for me was the literature.
"It's like there is nothing going on," he says. "The scene is huge but no one is doing anything which will ultimately be the death of hardcore. But, when it starts to die, people will do things again."
