Fucking libtard pussy

Name:
Michael Laing
Birthdate:
6 September 1963
Location:

Old punk guy, presently living in Edinburgh but originally from Fife, Scotland. I'm anti-Capitalism, anti-racism, anti-war and pro-equality, and I've been veggie since 1983. I have loved music since I was 10, when I discovered The Sweet, Slade and Status Quo, and over the years I've progressed through trad-punk, trad-metal, shred, grunge, gothic metal and prog-metal. I even like the odd bit of Britpop. As well as music, my interests include books (I volunteer in a charity bookshop), travelling and exploring, going to gigs (though who knows when or even if we'll be able to do that again?), and photography.

Unfortunately, LiveJournal is practically moribund these days, if not entirely dead. Nevertheless, it remains the best social-networking site by far, and I will continue to post here regardless of which site may presently be most popular. I live in hope that people will eventually tire of sites like Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Reddit, and will return to LiveJournal, the original and best of its kind. However, it seems that many people have been reluctant to continue using LiveJournal or to reactivate their accounts due to the user-interface for mobile phone users having been unsatisfactory. LiveJournal has now introduced a new mobile phone app: see New LiveJournal app for iOS and Android is available now! The app is available from the App Store and Google Play.

I generally update my journal three or four times-a-week. Most of my posts are friends-only, but new friends are always welcome. Add me, and I'll most likely add you back if we have at least a few interests in common.
