Shirt: Jawbreaker - 24hr Revenge therapy
Color: Heather Grey
Source: I moved to Oregon one year, it was the first time i would fever move out of Sacramento since living there for 20 something years. i have a few very vivd memories of Oregon. Eating Cinnebon for a month straight cause my roommate worked at the mall and he would bring home a box every night, only to find out later how disgusting they are in calories and fat..ewww i still shudder. i also remember being told I had a “California Attitude” by my boss at Fred Meyer when i questioned why she would rather put out rotting vegetables on display than to not put them out at all. her response. ”Because people will complain if it is not out there” my response..”don’t you think people will be more pissed when they pay money for rotten vegetables, then take them home to cook them and are bummed out?”
the last memory i have is 3 records that came out that i listened to non-stop while i lived there. Rancid’s “Out Come The Wolves”, Smashing Pumpkins “Mellon Collie & the infinite Sadness”..and lastly the topic of this post Jawbreaker “Dear You”. I remember them making a cassette single for Lurker Dark Son Of night as a promo, and i wanna say it had the Six Million Dollar Man on the cover. I was obsessed with this album, mostly because it was really crazy to me at the tie that this came out on a major label, and i was hoping it wouldn’t be ruined and turned into some “corporate rock bullshit” (that term was popular back then, so i thought i would throw it in there). Long story short, this record turned out to be one of my favorite Jawbreaker records, i travels to see them in Salem and Portland on this tour with Fluf, and Chinchilla, and glad i did so cause the breakup was shortly had thereafter. Oregon will always remind me of Jawbreaker, weird right?
Now you are probably thinking this is a shirt about 24hr, not Dear You, right? well i don’t have a dear you shirt, and i didn’t wanna tell another story about seeing samiam, green day and jawbreaker again at Gilman, berkley square or someplace in the east bay..so i wanted to take you on adventure with me to the Pacific northwest. i hope your brought an umbrella.
