Feel more like a home wrecker than a home designer? Tired of 10,000 shows on HGTV that don’t include decorating with spray paint or cooking for vegans? Only know the names of flowers because your tattoo artist inks them on you?            Then Home Rockanomics is the book for you. Never mind Martha Stewart, we’re here to share recipes from punk bands, decorating tips, and even how to make your clothing cooler!!            Ms. Minx brings the online cult phenomenon Punk Rock Domestics into your living room---you know, in case you forgot to pay the cable bill or your computer bit the dust.            Inside there are tips on recycling your clothing as well as recipes from members of Sick of It All, CH 3, and Flogging Molly (and so many more!).            Plus, loads of home tips that can help you turn that white shoe box into a truly rock ’n’ roll residence.            So get ready to get inspired---it’s time for DIY!
