I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.

I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
Truth be told, I’ve missed being a drummer lately. I was good. Not in this photo — I was total shit when this was taken. I mean, later on, I was good. Damn good. My first paying job was as a drummer for a dinner theater. I was in middle school. By the time high school rolled around, I was doing cheesy school concerts during the day and playing with my band in various dive bars during the night. And those shows were hugely rewarding. Watching a room full of people bobbing their heads to what you’re doing! Knowing what part of the song is going to make everybody start dancing and being right about it. Meeting lots of interesting people afterwards, who come up and tell you that you rocked their face off. I didn’t make a single dollar from the entire experience, but I was given so much more. Sometimes right there in the parking lot.
Let’s start a side project, Topher.
I’ll wear my glasses & a red wig and you wear a lobster costume.
We can call ourselves Hipster Ariel and the Hot Crustacean Band.
Okay, so my new band, Fast Forward Motion has it’s first gig booked for January 21st of 2011 at the Rudyard Kipling.
Our drummer, Clinton Kelley made some pretty bangin fliers for the show.
Which one do you like the best?
(The girl in the blue sweater is presently my desktop bg and also fwap material)
Fast Forward Motion presently has a bassist, drummer, keyboardist and my vocals.
We’re looking for a hard-working, 21+ individual who is skilled in their instrument, loves music, likes to rock, enjoys playing live and doesn’t think they’re too cool to participate in creating their dreams.
Fast Forward Motion’s musical influences include, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, Queen, The Cardigans, Radiohead, Madonna, European Metal, “The 80’s,” indie rock bands, and our moms.
We have written a few songs, and are looking to write more. Ideally, you’d like to participate in creating more music with us. We want a band member, not just a session player.
For a sorta-kinda-idea of what we sound like, you can google “the revenge of ricky williams” which was a band the 4 of us were in together. There are mp3’s, live videos, and lists of where we played shows out there on the interwebs.
Fast Forward Motion will likely play out 2 shows a month, and plan on touring in 2011. We are established musicians in the Louisville area, and are prepared to book gigs once we are a full unit.
One thing we’re thinking of doing next summer is do a tour of Gay Pride festivals.
Our live show is extremely important to us.
If you’re feeling like you want to participate, or at the very least you’d like to get to know us— email me. My name is Pam and my email address is punkrockpam @ Gmail dot com.

Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon!
I need to figure out how I can get new, cute outfits to wear at shows, and not have to pay for them.
I can’t afford to buy new clothes right now… but I’ve got shows and events and parties coming up like CRAZY! I can’t keep wearing the same shit, you guys. I haven’t had to repeat an outfit at a show yet, and we’ve played 16 shows (maybe more?)… but even my wardrobe filled with all the cute and quirky costumes and daily wear is bound to run out.
Before that happens, I’d like to find a designer who would be willing to work with my size and height (size 10/12 5’10”) and is cool with their work being displayed at rock shows where I’m going to get sweaty and will absolutely not be wearing shoes after the first song.
I mean, it’s a great idea, because people always ask me what I’m gonna wear to a show, and if it’s something you can actually wear in real life, lots of people ask me where I got it. I’m not above promoting my outfits at shows either. I’d be happy to say, “Hey, so-and-so design made my outfit! You can check their shit out at so-and-so.com” or whatever.
I’d even wear the stuff out to the parties I go to. I go to A LOT of parties, y’all. And I’m always getting asked where I got my shit. Sometimes it’s target, sometimes it’s an indy designer, sometimes it’s a hand-me-down from a friend. But a bitch likes to look nice when she goes out, ya heard?
I just wanna know I’m not gonna run out of shit to wear at shows, and that I will always look really cool… oh, and I don’t want to have to pay, lol.
If you’re a designer, or know someone who might be into this, email me or have them contact me. I’m serious: Pam Newman = oreobarbie at gmail dot com.
