You love Family Guy. When in a new city you opt for Taco Bell over the local taco spot, no matter how highly it comes recommended, because you “like to know what you’re getting.” You wear $11 sunglasses. You think longboards are “fucking lame” but can’t explain why skating a shorter piece of wood is any less clowny. You engage in political arguments on Facebook.
I watched the trailer for the new Night at the Museum last night and thought “I don’t get how people love Robin Williams so much.”
Now all my social media accounts are flooded with posts about him because he killed himself.
The Birdcage and Jumanji were cool.
Last night I got to see The Vandals, Pennywise, Bad Religion, and The Offspring. Tonight I get to see them again.
Seeing The Vandals after being a fan for 12 years was great. Set was perfect, and I was especially happy about them playing “Live Fast, Diarrhea” which I did not see on other set lists when preparing for these shows.
Pennywise are just as good as I remember them being 9 years ago. Kids went off.
BR were on point. Not the best set list I have seen them play, but definitely the best set they’ve played. Very little talking, and lots of songs in a short period. They played like 5 Suffer songs in a row.
The Offspring were the first punk band I ever liked. Exchanging the Rugrats The Movie soundtrack CD I got as a Xmas gift for The Offspring’s Americana in ‘98 was one of the best decisions I ever made. I wish they would have played “Self Esteem” where it appears on the album, instead of saving it for the end of the Smash set, but if that is the only complaint I have about the entire night, then I can overlook it.
Must remember ear plugs tonight.
Old Hardcore flyer from 1996 for the amazing Snapcase and Refused.
Victory’s roster back when they had more bands worth listening to.
