I mean, I have a couple of pennywise and face to face albums on CD. still do.

I bought the self-titled and heard "40 oz..." about a thousand times through friends. Don't even think I sold it, just tossed it away at some point. 12 years old is a strange time in a boy's life.

one of my senior year hs art projects was a "documentary" on hk action cinema that mostly featured pause-button edits of the goriest two-handed-gunplay sequences set to black flag and mdc songs

hah, I did almost the same thing but it was for my senior year english class and there weren't any black flag or mdc songs

also did another 'documentary' that mostly featured gory sequences from dead alive and godzilla smashing buildings

Yes, I did. I still have it. I think.

I did a music video for "Needle and the Damage Done" to a montage of drug use and overdose scenes from various movies. It started with pot and beer scenes from Dazed and Confused and then escalated uncomfortably. I tagged on the long shot of Jim Morrison's grave from the end of The Doors at the end.

i feel like i have a pulitzer-worthy thinkpiece in me about what the hell we were all thinking re. 90s ska

guilt for not listening to gay disco in the early nineties

i bought so many sublime albums in the 90s. year after year, boire, 41, don't get weird on me babe, the first tindersticks, cure for pain, the blue moods of spain, dirty, just to name a few. there was a band with that name? did i miss something?

alex in mainhattan, Saturday, 28 April 2012 21:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

Of course I did.

I still sing "dooooooown here at the pawwn SHOP" every time I see one. I still say "GI-Joe Kung-Fu" grip too.

Bulge Pimp (Spottie_Ottie_Dope), Saturday, 28 April 2012 21:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

no Sublime, but I did own a 311 album.

Still partial to this opening salvo. I was so disappointed to pick up the CD version and find that "Get Out" had been completely removed.

I bet I could make a decent Sublime playlist, and I'm kinda jonesing for one with this thread being bumped, but I didn't save any of their CDs.

frogsclovetofu (beachville), Saturday, 28 April 2012 22:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I had some 311 too xp, must say that 311 has aged MUCH worse than Sublime. Cant even go nostalgia trippin' off that shit any more.

Bulge Pimp (Spottie_Ottie_Dope), Saturday, 28 April 2012 22:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

totally agreed, though even at the time I kind of knew that 311 sucked.

I saw DMC wearing a Sublime shirt once

los blue jeans, Saturday, 28 April 2012 22:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

never bought an album but always liked "What I Got" (the version in the video, not the acoustic strummin' singalong version, fuck that one)

Wow, haven't heard "Ruca" in forever and I still remember lot of the words.

there was great stuff on Robbin the Hood that wasn't the schizophrenic guy rambling or the half-assed dub versions.

Yeah "S.T.P." introduced me to Smokey Robinson.

Lol I just remembered whenever the local Sublime cover band played STP all the kids would yell "I'm even learning how to COOK SPEED" RHPS style.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Saturday, 28 April 2012 23:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

that was what he sang live, iirc.

Mordy, Sunday, 29 April 2012 02:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

sure. i got the third album from the free magazine record club (3rd or 4th time joining) because i don't know why but probably "what i got". didn't like it much and sold it w/in a couple weeks.

Choc. Clusterman (contenderizer), Sunday, 29 April 2012 03:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah rocky horror. Tho growing up in Gwinnett County no doubt some of those kids had actually learned to cooked meth.

you know, one musician I didnt end up seeking out from sublime references was KRS One. What were his teachings on hambugers, steak, elijah muhammed, and the welfare state?

frogsclovetofu (beachville), Monday, 30 April 2012 11:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Although I despise them Sublime is one of the bands I think most about. They were unavoidable growing up in the late 90s in Southern California and informed so much of my high school/formative life experiences. I never owned their records but they were ubiquitous at the time.
