@lora.bee The female singer from Bran Van 3000 is now a lawyer and is running for the NDP nomination in Bourassa!!
(I dorkily love both Big Shiny Tunes and politics - now at last they come together!)
Oh man. A few thoughts:
I also think The Way is still super catchy, but definitely not as catchy as high school me thought.
I am not a huge Flagpole Sitta fan, but I will admit that I enjoy it more now than I did then. It is perfect for karaoke/large scale 90s dance parties/power hours.
Unabashedly all about the Tonic and Everclear singles, but then again my 90s were all about bands made up of white dudes (from Soundgarden/Nirvana to Our Lady Peace/Collective Soul/Oasis/Weezer). I'm sorry you guys, but I had a reputation to upkeep and I couldn't be liking anything that wasn't on the alternative rock station (yet I owned that Aqua album). Over that now!
Jock Jams next?
HOW CAN THESE BE SO PERFECT?!
(Clarification: I am shouting with happiness)
"The most ornate thing you can buy from an ice cream truck."
Oh, beautiful truth! The best truth.
'...or better yet just clawing your skull open and holding out your brain like a ripe fruit: "Here, take this, know me."'
Here, take this, know me.
These make me wanna cry, in maybe a good way but maybe a bad way too.
@Jaya relevant tweet from @robdelaney: "Son, this wallet is chained to my buttock for it has killed 2 other wallets & I am a taking it to leather jail. I am a federal marshall."
@leon s It's also jarring because when you think "bowling shirts and wallet chains" you think mid-late 90s. And while yeah the internet existed back then (I spent a lot of time in college in IRC channels), there sure as hell wasn't any streaming internet radio.
@Tuna Surprise Aaa nevermind, ignore me! I'm not even new here, I don't know why I thought that wouldn't be a joke. Eeembarrassing.
