I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your blog. It seems like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen previously. Kudos
Thank you for your music & the songs that have helped me through some really dark moments over the years. The legacy of The Gits lives on, like it is supposed to be when it comes to amazing, timeless music.
I can't believe I am just hearing this story now. I can't believe I am just hearing this music now. Everything Seattle got its 15 minutes and more and I never heard The Gits.
Thinking of you today as I do every other Mia. You inspire me and your music has brought me to life. I hope all the people who got to know you in life understand how truly lucky they are. I wish I could have been one of them. I\'ll always think of you and listen to your music. Rest peacefully beautiful soul. Love always, Holly
I would LOVE to hear any other recordings of the Gits and Mia's solo performances. Or anything that\'s available really. Including any interviews she may have done if someone has a copy of them. She seems like a really amazing person from everything I've read about her and the Gits. She had to have been to have so many people fighting to keep her memory alive after 20 years.
This is hard for me to write.Mia Zapata was born the same year as I was and my daughter Jasmine Cherise Curiosity Armour and she were the same age when they were murdered.Mia Zapata was one of the people my daughter most admired,my daughter who hopped freight trains and wrote great songs that were always in her backpack and it disappeared when she was murdered in Buffalo,NY 2/10/2011 and all her books of poetry.I got her acoustic/electric mini-martin guitar and her dog back.The stupid cops threw her dog Sally in jail because she wouldn\'t leave her body.She is a very nice dog.She did not even bite the murderers for fuck\'s sake.I got her guitar back from these nice anarchist kids that liberated it from the crime scene of her house,they lived at the Bird House.People say bad stuff about them,but they gave me her guitar and helped me get her dog back alive.Anyway,Jasmine always had musical projects going on and sometimes on Halloween and New Years did the lead in a Gits cover band.Jasmine always wrote all the lyrics for any band she was in.She lived in Seattle for a while and called me one night very,very upset,from a bar and I can\'t remember the name,but it was the bar that she hung out at,every town worth a damn has a place like that,I used to work at one in DC called Back Alley when she was a little kid...so I guess she always felt at home in the place where people likeminded hung out,anyway,she started telling me about Mia Zapata,her role model,and how could a thing like that happen...and she drank too much when she was sad,and I am rambling on a keyboard but somehow I think somebody somewhere on the other end maybe understands.Jasmine\'s mom,Cathy ps,the 1st concert she ever went to was before she was 1 and it was the Dead Kennedys the real ones,WITH Jelloe4
You know what I\'ve always wondered, I remember in the documentary there was this softer version of Precious Blood and Cut my Skin It makes me human. Where could I hear those versions?
Happy Birthday Mia!!! Xoxox
Hope your singing in heaven...you missed here
Happy birthday m heaven :D. hugs n more hugs

My best friend early in his tattoo career wanted to do a portrait and asked me for a space of my flesh. I had wanted a Mia portrait since I first heard and was touched by her music and the tragedy of her death. Since we both our Seattle natives and fans of The GITS it became a matter of what picture we felt best represented her strength and beauty. Since branding her portrait on myself it has appeared in The Stranger and most recently in The Seattle Times, an article about women\'s safety in the city. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=176216125752909&set=a.172518722789316.33330.172055016169020&type=3&theater I don\'t know how to set a link but if inclined to see copy and paste the above and be whisked away to a face page from the tattoo shop. You can also google search Mia Zapata tattoo with Seattle Times to find the article. Love and another shot of whiskey ...
I bought an electric guitar because of 7 year bitch and this whole amazing scene. MIA and I went to the same college, but different decades and now that I am back making music, I think about her all the time for some reason. Wish so badly that she were still around.
thank you mia for great music love the gits
Mia you were a Incredible person and a inspiration to many of women out there (including myself) who want to sing in punk rock music you are greatly missed you were such a gem your voice was one of a kind..I miss you and love you always.
Twenty years ago we lost Mia. She has since passed into immortality and legend. The Gits and Mia are with us forever. A special thank you to those still here, Andy, Matt and Steve. Peace to you all.
