This Story Rocks

story + illustrations /  Gina Tron I never learn anything. That’s what I’ve learned.  Back when I was a kid I had this game I would do when I was bored.  It wasn’t much of a game because there were no rules and nobody could win, but it was entertaining. I would pick up rocks that I found on the ground and throw them straight up into the air, tilt my head up while often backing away, and see where they would land. I would try to guess their... Read More

The Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys

story / Gina Tron images / Koko Ntuen A lot of girls my age were big fans of the Backstreet Boys. I can recall vividly the Beatle-esque screaming fit my nation’s peers would have if they were in the same vicinity as the legendary boy band. I was not a fan of The Backstreet Boys. I used to draw pictures of me killing them. I hated them. I felt that I was supposed to. They represented everything I hated, or thought I hated. That didn’t stop... Read More

I asked her what weapon she would be if she had all the arsenal options in the world. She told me she’d be a kitchen knife. “It’s more surprising. In everyday life. It’s domestic.

6th Grade Ankle Spraining Party

  story+ images / Gina Tron Sometimes I think about what it would be like to relive junior high school. When I think about this, my brain immediately starts to think about death. My personality was pretty muted at the time. I was afraid to come out of my shell for fear of getting my exterior cracked by my friends. My true personality would come out from time to time. When it did it naturally only pissed my buddies the fuck off. I think... Read More

You Can Paint Your Shell Nice But You Can Never Uncrack An Egg

story + images /  Gina Tron I like to say that I am kinda like Jesus, seeing how I was kinda resurrected from death one glorious Easter. It was April 15th, 2001 and I was attending college in Montreal. At the time I had made it a hobby to consume drugs in abandoned churches. It was kind of the in-thing to do at the time. There was something different about the Easter party from the beginning. This rave, unlike the others, was not in a church.... Read More

THE NIGHT BEFORE COLLEGE

THE NIGHT BEFORE COLLEGE

story + images / Gina Tron It was the night before college. It was the night before I was supposed to leave Barre, Vermont in order to move to Montreal. I was watching a movie on a couch in Barre City with my two friends at the time, one of which refused to be seen with me in public. Hanging with these two was the extent of the high school parties I attended, basically. The night was boring as always and didn’t satisfy any desires I had about... Read More

Kelsey Bennett + B. Thom Stevenson

photographer / Kacy Johnson story /Gina Tron   Kelsey Bennett and  B. Thom Stevenson merged their talents to make a collection called “Boregasm,” that debuted in NY last month and still resonates with me today.  The show was exhibited at Manhattan’s Fig19 Gallery. The two had worked together in the past on music videos and even a war-mobile of sorts that they collaborated on at last year’s Bushwick Open Studios. They felt they... Read More
