My niece AVA BETH. So many years ago! She seemed so big then. 8th grade is here and I can't believe how time has flown by! #flashbax
DEAR GOOD PPL OF IRELAND! I AM SO SO SO SORRY ABOUT NOT MAKING IT TO THE FESTIVAL😭. I decided to take all of my suitcases for a ride down An escalator . I'm not talking falling a little bit. It was like Goofy on skies and probably looked like me and suitcases in a tumble dryer. ''Tis a good thing I have zero issues with embarrassment .it's a blessing and a curse really. My shoulder is majorly effed. What a giant baby! I am so sorry.! Forgive me! There's a picture to the far left which has the markings of a churro. Or a flame broiled whopper. That would be the bruise left from the metal slats. The second photo is from when I dropped my phone on my nose laying on the bus . Probably googling a mystery. The last one is just a photo to remind myself I can be somewhat normal.. ish ... sometimes..
@feverray Dear Fever Ray, y'all have been my favorite band for years. We have been playing shows for a long time. First I heard The Knife. And they were so good. Revolutionary songs like about cops being the enemy. Songs about feminism. And then there was @feverray songs about feminism in life. Songs about being very good with plants. I got the chance to meet you, #karindreijerandersson . We spoke a few times. I felt so lucky. I got to work with #alexanderskarsgard . I heard he was from Sweden. I didn't watch television like that so when he told me he was Swedish I asked him everything I could about Fever Ray! He was/ is hella kind. But no matter how handsome and talented he was my interest dwindled when he had no story about you alll. @feverray played when I was working out of town!!! My best friend,Jeri and I wanted go so badly! But! Life is life! I hope this message will find #karindreijerandersson because what Patti Smith or dead moon is to some , she is to me ! Just like @theyummyfur 😬🥰🥰!
@karenlorrainelorraine @hellbookss 2 years ago this punk baby was born and has become one of the biggest lights in my life! HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY , VIVIENNE GALAXIE !!!!!!!! it's been a wild ride seeing my punk rock friends become punk rock parents! It's so inspiring ! Thank you both Karen and Chris for sacrificing Chris missing two birthdays for this tour! I wouldn't know what we'd do with out 'em ! #chosenfamily #proudgodmother
I feel like Cher from Clueless! "Says who?!" "Calvin Klein!!!” #MYCALVINS #IRL #ad

And the list is very moving . @edward_enninful you really get the feeling someone is cheering EVERYONE on.

@bigjoanieband UK AND IRELAND ! This is BIG JOANIE but you all probably knew that! They just announced a tour coming up and I wanted to say how much I loved being on tour with them and hearing their music every night! The record is so good. So much of what's missing from punk music ! And they all dress incredible ALL THE TIME?!! Like been in a van for 12 hours? Why not wear a beret and a stark white dress? Anyway! They're just sooo good! GO SEE THEM! #bigjoanieband
HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY, NAYSH! #bracepaine
It's so sad .
Repost: @sharonneedlespgh Note : also arrested without incident! WITHOUT INCIDENT?!! THIS IS #whiteprivilege #systematicracism
@shobecomingagod #onbecomingagodincentralflorida @rffunke @mattlutsky @estaspalding #KirstenDunst I pinch myself a lot. Too hard sometimes. But this radical crew of ppl have me bruised AF! I got to be on a TV show, y'all! MEET MY HANDSOME TV HUSBAND! thanks to this fella! @realmelrodriguez who really gave me a lot of confidence and heart to heart conversations.I was taken under many wings in this , but None like Melvin's! THANKS, EVERYONE ,FOR TAKING CHANCE ON AN ADHD RIDDEN SINGER WITH very minimal acting experience ! I feel so happy! Genuinely!
" I'm Portuguese"! - auntie burns and MO, like her mother, becomes aSummertime olive glistening in the sunshine! The littlest Ramona Mendonca! I promise. That's all for a while! WELL.. until I see baby viv!
Wade pool for the cautious water baby. I love this age. There is no sense of body shame. She's sees me in my bathing suit because OF COURSE! That's what you wear to the beach!?!. She's not judgmental talking about my big legs and her small tummy . They're just the shape we are. Only I'm bigger , mama is smaller than me, but bigger than her. It's so inspiring to be surrounded by such untouched popular norms. She's just mo. And I'm auntie. As Ramona would say " it is veeeery special" this age is very special indeed . Pic by mama @k_donks
@teddykwo LOOK , HONEY! I THINK I HAVE THIS PARENTING THING ALL FIGURED OUT! @k_donks @edwardonward Kathy carried Mo around all day! And the sand proved difficult, so we improvised a sand sled with my beach sarong! And of course auntie B got that giant lollipop for her .. why? Because I can! ( and her mom didn't say no) . It's safe to say Kathy and I are living out our childhood wants via Ramona! #notsorry #mobeansaves2019 Kathy and I have known each other approx 22 years. We started gossip with Nathan 20 YEARS AGO THIS YEAR! #thegossip1999vs2019 #panamajaqueé
Ramona asked me why we call our close friend auntie and not say uncle. Because gender has come up. I asked if she'd like it if I called her by another name like Shirley. Her response " NEVER CALL ME SHIRLEY" so sincere. I think she got it! She is a smart little thing. We spoke for a tiny second about boys can seem like girls and vice versa. She made an immediate correlation. one of her uncles who is soft spoken and gentle she said " wasn't like an uncle wasn't an auntie"she's 2. She is 2 And asks incredible and complex questions. I wish I could retell this story and make it more clear.. but then again. Nobody every called me short winded nor have they called me a real story teller... She kissed me twice on the cheek today. And I felt so full up of heartfelt love and I was so content! #mobeansaves2019 # @edwardonward @k_donks thank you, Kathy for the getaway..... I love you !❤️
Just a pic of my basic ol face to say ! Thank you everyone who make my surreal job even more surreal . The friends I've had for pushing two decades, the really devoted gossip, solo "fans" who feel more like family than anything else . To all my band mates spanning from 1999 to 2019! When I am back home I'm gonna make a misty eyed greatest hits of all the fantastic reunions and new unions made For now is a mediocre selfie shall have to do! And after that I'm going to take a small social media break to refresh. I haven't been in tip top health. And we can't figure out exactly why! And honestly seeing Boris ding dong become PM while in the UK !!! Has caused me to reassess some shit and my approach to real self care and activism. Shit was real .. it's fixing to get surreally realer . I love everyone so much I wish you could feel it as deeply as I do! Be on the lookout for the rad tour posts and then I'll sign off for a bit! Mostly I'll just be eating incredible burritos . ❤️❤️🌯🌯🤡🤡👩🏻🦰👩🏻🦰

Who wore it better ? @k_donks
See previous post.. this was my first trip home after moving far away to the big city of Olympia, WA in 1999. Look how happy he is! My dad was in a motorized chair and it never failed that I'd go in for a hug and kiss from the front and it would hit the controls and he'd shoot back really fast! HAHAHHAHA! Took me a while to remember to hug and kiss him from the side! Hahahahaha! Gosh! MISS YOU, DAD ! Shout out to my oldest best friend and sister in law @crystal_ditto for sending me these😚
Happy Father's Day , DAD! the one and only Homer Ditto Smiling down at my nephew Eean. My dad has been gone a while now. And sometimes I still forget. I grew up with music all around me my mom and my dad. There was a great appreciation of sound . Talent. Quality. Rhythm and dancing. My dad loved to show me off at honky tonks at the VFW where he would do sound. He was overprotective at times . As I got older I could be a little loud for his taste. But he loved us so much. In this this photo you can just barely make out his crooked hands from the RA that took away his mobility, made its way to his organs , and eventually took him away at 57. I loved his dimples and the smell of the diesel shop left on his clothes after work. He had an intricate understanding of all things mechanical. Any machine and gadget Dad knew inside and out. And if he didn't . He would in no time. I am so grateful for the country knowledge he passed down to all of us. And his love of slapstick comedy ! And god help me! Star Trek! I know he's in the ether . And shaking his head at some of the shit that comes outta my mouth sometimes. But proud nonetheless! Let it be known! DITTO IS NOT MY STAGE NAME. IT IS NOT MY PUNK NAME. It's this man's last name. And I am so lucky to have been given it ! #typos happy Father's Day , dad. I wish I could tell you I love you and hug you one more time.
Guadalajara! What a sweet crowd! Today was full of surprises! We were in a slight car accident! The plane gave away some of our seats so we might not have all made it!
