Our good friend and respectable blogarian from Kangaroo country BourbonBird "tagged" me with a meme, and I have decided to reply out of respect for her and her infinite awesomeness (And go read her blog if you haven't already). So here goes:
Ten years ago:
I graduated from high school. I just missed the 10 year reunion. And by miss it, I mean I didn't make it.
I watched "The Usual Suspects", loved it so much I named my dog Keyser, and then ruined the ending to the movie to Kid Dammit by explaining to him why I named my dog that. Way to go, stupid myself.
I started to enjoy the college experience, sans class.
I looked like a much younger, beardless version of myself. Old sucks. I'm not quite old yet, but I can feel old knocking at the door. The other day I got cut off in the car by some rowdy teens driving to school and I shook my fist and said "Damn you fucking kids! Slow down!" They laughed at me. Godamned kids. I hope that Mountain Dew they drink extremes their Abercrombie asses off a open drawbridge.
Five years ago:
I was in music school, where I enjoyed the college experience, and this time went to class.
My car was stolen.
I did alot of Astral Projection and managed to freak myself out quite a bit.
I lived with the Mantis, Yadig, and a few other nomads in a dilapidated house in a godawful neighborhood in Boston with a mumbly landlord named John Darling who looked like the illegitimate love child of Mahir and Gallagher.
I was convinced that the Apocalypse was coming at any time.
One year ago:
I was caught inside the Capitalist struggle.
I was a much more jaded music industry victim than I am now.
I was living in NYC.
My car was stolen (again).
