Punk Rock Postcard

Actually, it’s not. It’s a Reuters photo of a protester at a May Day anti-war protest in London. It’s just that the picture is so perfect, from the tower and riot police in the background to the priceless expression on the punker’s face.

(I notice that punk fashion has remained relatively unchanged. This guy wouldn’t look out of place on the Queen Street West of today or 1983. I wonder if he listens to the old stuff too.)

Hey — isn’t the gesture the “V” sign in the UK, and not the middle finger?

Photo: London punker gives the camera the finger with a smile.

I would like to dedicate this gesture to the RIAA, MPAA and DMCA.
