So, the other night I was at a Foreigner concert (if this doesn't make you nostalgic, keep quiet while the adults talk) , wearing a black t-shirt, jeans and engineer boots, singing and clapping and yelling dumb shit like everyone else, when some kid in the front lights up a big fat one and proceeds to blow green smoke all over the crowd. Suddenly, a question popped into my mind "Why the fuck did we ever give up on the 80's?"

I know, I know: The cantilevered shoulders on all those space-patrol jackets were about to collapse, and the mullets were getting out of control. Seems to me there were simple solutions to those things (mostly involving shears) rather than throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Perhaps if I'd done my full share of grass and blow I'd have more sympathy for everyone who checked into Betty Ford. But rehab is like fasting: you do it so food tastes better when you're done.

And the music! Joan Jett, Metalica, Def Leopard, even Whitesnake (what, were you thinking of the Pet Shop Boys?). Sure, it was no Mozart revival, but it was great party music, made made all the girls twist and grind. Their musical skills may have been somewhere West of The Ramones, but they could sure as hell get you laid. Besides, they sounded better than anything coming out of seattle in the 90's.

Re: Surprise

I'm reconnecting with my roots, as it were. I will not, however, be sporting parachute pants.

Re: Surprise

Like dyed-hair roots, you should cover them up! Parachute pants are pretty nifty though last time I checked they were going for a lot of money on Ebay.

So you, like Kneil, once had a mullet?

Re: Surprise

Nope, a fro. I won't be sporting that, either.
