I def. see the KD Lang thing, but it looks good!

Remy Ulysses Fitzgerald (x Jeremy), Friday, 1 April 2005 05:39 (fourteen years ago) link

I'll have to slim down and try that look again then. Nothing else much is working for me at the moment.

Gothdom approacheth! This was taken maybe 6-12 months after that one above. My first black hairdye and my only (bad) attempt at having a fringe. Dig the shoes.

I look like teeny in that pic, a bit dont I?

yeah, it's cute.

all pictures of me suck.

You do a bit...and someone else whose name I can't place. Someone famous. Hmmmmm.

kate/thank you friendly cloud (papa november), Friday, 1 April 2005 05:46 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah. Between the two photos you've posted, I wouldn't recognize you as the same person.

Tuomas: yeah, I had a knack for being a right little chameleon in them days. My own family (like, cousins who'd not seen me in some years) used to not reccognise me from one family do to the next. I guess I have one of those blank canvas faces or something.

Its sort of a running gag how often I've changed my hair and such.

Sugarpants looks like the coolest kid ever.

Thanks! I wish I still had that shirt. I miss those boots, too. Still the best outfit I have ever put together in my entire life.

Video, not a photo. Me around 36 or 37, in the mid-late 90s (I'm at 0:56:30, and again at 1:30:00). These are outtakes from the documentary Vinyl; the director assembled them into a second film that got a one-time screening at Hot Docs a few years ago, and he posted it up on YouTube today.

Hard for me to watch this. I was still supply-teaching, and had been doing it for so long I was ready to pack it in and look for something else. I was drifting, to put it mildly.

Dan S, Wednesday, 12 September 2018 03:06 (one year ago) link

Thanks. I'm not so universal anymore on the idea that music hits you hardest when you're 11 or 12. I think there's still validity to that for someone my age, because you got your music from the radio. Thing are completely different now.

six months pass...

an old friend sent me a picture of me and an old cat, circa 2005.

Karl Malone, Friday, 29 March 2019 02:29 (five months ago) link

not an old cat, obviously a very young cat. although he'd be old now. but i just mean, this cat was in the past. the good old past.

TYSM, VegemiteGrrrl. ❤️

In the second photo I was still growing out an ill-advised Dorothy Hamill haircut/'do; no one with hair as thick as mine used to be had any business with such a haircut. Two words as to why: "mushroom cloud".

Deee you are such a cutie!

Coming from a beauty such as yourself, that's high praise.

Ok, reaction time now that I've had enough time to peruse the entire thread:
1. I'm relieved not every one of you came across as looking Too Cool for School, because there's never been a point in my life when I've looked anywhere near "cool". So thanks a ton to those of you who posted adorable (or adorably awkward) photos of yourself!
2. It's kinda distressing how much my very first IRL crush resembled a perfect a 50%/50% mixture of young Ned and jel. Bus Pass Jel especially.
3. Michaels White and Jones were STONE COLD HOTTT OMG.
4. IDK if tera's still around these parts, but I love that with her I found someone whose childhood I could instantly find a kinship. My Catholic grade school uniforms looked a LOT like the ones shown in the group photo and Val Verde and Bexar counties aren't that far apart from each other; also, I too grew up surrounded by a significant majority of my fellow Chicanx people!
5. VG, your childhood photos were so precious, and the photo with you and your fiancée is seriously Relationship Goals.
6. I wish I could've seen a lot of the photos that now show up as broken image links. Ah well.
7. Onimo, that haircut in the most recent photo you've posted suited you perfectly.

One more photo of me, this time at my National Honor Society induction ceremony toward the end of my sophomore year of high school, i.e. in the first year of eligibility (according to our school charter's rules). I was delirious with happiness at the time and it shows in the photo, because this had been my main goal since the very first day of high school. My parents, on the other hand.... (It's also crazy to note that out of the three people in the photo, I'm the only one who's still alive.)
