Nineteen and ninety fucking two...
Was this really 14 years ago?
I'm sitting here watching VH1 Classic and Eddie Vedder is belting out "Evenflow."
I remember trading my copy of Material Issue's International Pop Overthrow for a copy of Ten. I still think I got the better end of the deal, all things considered... but damn, "grunge" seems so dated now.
In 1992, I was just out of college, living in Chicago, going door-to-door for Greenpeace, making subminimum wage, and I don't think I'd ever had a bite of sushi.
And now it's Morrissey singing "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out."
Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan. I liked The Smiths so much more before I'd ever seen a single video of theirs. From 1988 until 1997, I didn't have cable, so seeing all of this stuff is all pretty much new to me.
I don't think I really missed all that much.
