Interview with Brian Medlin of Legendary Divorce via Punk Out

Hey guys! Today I talked with Brian Medlin of band Legendary Divorce.

“For me, inclusiveness is part of the very fabric that makes up a punk scene. It’s what makes it “punk”. At least it damn well should be. If you can’t accept someone for who they are, you’re not punk”

Art Therapy

Feeling sick? Feeling the blahs? Up, down, left, and right? Try picking up a little arts and crafts. Did you know that art therapy helps you to express emotions that you can’t verbally articulate? Art therapy focuses on the inner experiences. Try taking a piece of paper for instance, and just draw. Forget that you’re not an artist, allow yourself to disconnect. What do you see? how does it make you feel? Don’t be a critic… just express! What’s your story? Feel the motion in your arm, your hand, your body etc. Feels good, right?

Today I bought some pastels. For the record, I’ve never used pastels. With no direction, I just went ahead. The sensory input was an overload! It truly does something for me.



Happy 4th of July
