Day: 1000! Shirt: Descendents - Nerds Invade Long Beach 2011 Color: Light Blue Brand: Gilden Heavy Cotton
Source: Boom so i did it, 1,000! no big deal right? almost 3 years of not wearing the same shirt twice. why? cause i could i suppose. there is that part of me that is an archivist and thinks somewhere somehow this site will be a useful reference for some drunken bar argument out there about how many color ways the ALL Forknife shirt came in (the answer is 2 btw). So yeah. It started with ALL, so but all means 1000 should be Descendents. I know its not uber dance, rare or mind blowing, but like i have said on here before, I’m not here to blow your mind. I Just wanna do my thing and if you come along for the ride more power to you. Happy to have you along. It’s just that i have been listening to Descendents / ALL since i was 16. they mean a lot to me. the highs, the lows. Ive met friends because of them, I’ve broken up with friends to them. Ive followed them to MO, and the CO (in my mind) listed and bought every record they have ever made, every comp they were on, every song. I can truly say in a not staler sounding voice. I really embrace them. they are more part of my life than most of my family. thats weird to say, but true.
So to say i feel like i have gotten a lot from them is an understatement.
I mean c’mon how many bands do you know were around in 1979 still touring today and writing new songs (that are good) and span a generation of music lovers. Not many, id venture to say that you can count them on one hand.
Anyways. I did 1000 days. now what , who cares really? i dunno. from here on out i am def stopping the writing process (I know i said that at 500, but this time i mean it), Its hard. trying not to be redundant etc.. its time consuming. but i might still keep the Instagram up. Im almost convinced anyways that no one on Instagram knows about the blog and vice versa. so yeah as for these lengthy winded posts you can put a fork in them they are done. it was nice chatting with you n stuff.
Keep enjoying and supporting music and the bands you love. and if you see me out don’t be scared to say hello and get nerdy about shirts with me. i may look like I’m mean but i am as nerdy and dirty as the rest of you.
