70's-00's MEMORIES... 12oz Personal Edition


Recommended Posts

Okay so we've all been reminiscing and LOLing in the 80's-90's MEMORIES thread... Definitely a blast from the past and good fun to look back on. A recent post by @SMdoubleXL(and her response) got me thinking that it would be way more fun to actually post personal photos, rather than skim shit off the interwebz. 

 

So in honor of the Oontz and the opportunity for laughs, I decided to start this thread and will even post the same photo for you all to make fun of. So the way this works, is you post a personal photo (bonus points if its the age before digital) and add a little background to it.

 

Here's me in High School. I think it was about 10th grade, so that would put this at about 1989 or so. I'd already been going to punk shows for a few years wuith friends, was deep into Misfits and Sam Hain and started really getting serious about graffiti after being accepted into Free Agents, a graffiti crew presided then and now by @dekayfa that was super unique fort its time since it was all punk and skater kids ( @diggity) would join this crew many years later when Dekay had moved to Georgia and inspired a whole new wake of skater type kids to pickup graffiti and eventually join). Anyhow, these were some great times... Not quite a kid, but not quite an adult, listening to everything from punk, hardcore through to new wave and progressive music. Doing graffiti, going to parties, going to shows and just having fun at the expense of my High School education, which basically sucked right up until getting kicked out of High School about a year later. (Dekay also got kicked out).

 

Believe by about this point I had my first car, which was a 1972 El Camino Classic that was painted white and orange with house paint when I got it for something like $275. I spent about $20 for several cans of grey primer, another $20 for some Bondo and a yard worth of generic black carpet and switched the bench seat out for some bucket seats I stole out of another car somewhere. The car was a complete shit bucket that maybe got about 8 miles to the gallon. I never bothered insuring it and matter of fact, never even bother to register it. Those were the days when you could just steal a plate off a wreck out behind a mechanics shop and just hope cops didn't end up at a stoplight behind you. Good days and long before smartphones and internets. Kinda wish progress unrolled a little slower.

I'm gonna have to dust off photo albums for my shit and they're all at my parent's place

 

My mom always brought us to burlington coat factory to buy clothes and jackets we'd need during the year

Back then, for some fucking reason, Virginia was sooo fucking cold 

 

But shouts to burlington for hooking up a young kid with cheap gold

 

They actually sold north face mountain jackets DISCOUNTED cuz noone was buying the shit, especially in Virginia

 

I wore nothing else, and didnt figure it to be anything special 

apparently theres a cult following on this thing

IDK about this.  A crafty individual could age enhance my pic and would know what I look like had I not turned ugly.

Feel free to opt out, but its ludicrous to think your image isn't stored across several databases. Unless you've literally never taken a school photo, gotten a drivers license, passport or a million other things while living your life in a hidey hole in the woods, you're photo is already in the system.

@misteraven- my Mom has the heat photos from the 70s and a few from the 80s, but unfortunately I have nothing to speak of that is a photo of myself as a teen. I know some old friends have some photos but I haven't seen or talked to any of them in twenty years or more. I'll have to dig through what I have and see if anything will qualify. But just so I'm sharing something... here's one from 1992 when I worked as the in-store artist at Tower Records in Dublin, CA.

You might have missed the joke in that.

Those Girbauds I’m rocking were most definitely bought at Burlington. My best friend and I knew when their shipments were coming in and we’d take the buses waaay the fuck out to the burbs to raid the racks for Girbaud & Cross Colours.
