  1. void is probably my favorite hardcore band next to black flag. they invented so many sounds and they still sound ahead of everyone else today

    i have their "hit and run" demo its hilariously awesome.

    Die Kruezen is great but an aquired taste, you either love them or hate them. their late era metal stuff is SO BAD

    the whole DIY san diego sound always reminded me of the manchester art school bands of the 1980s without synths + the early noisey garage bands like SUICIDE.


  2. im looking for a good summer bike. like a 10 speed. i know nothing about bikes, i just want something to take me from A to B and not look like a geezer.

    however, i live in a college town full of bikes and bike nazi snobs... so on craigslist there are inflated prices, what do you guys think should be my price to look for when it comes to just a 10 speed racing bike. whats an honest price range?


  3. i have always felt two things wearing shorts, first being i feel like a little kid, and second i feel like my dad.

    at 21 i am to old to do the whole "wear shorts because you dont know better" and im to young to be like "chevy chase on a family vacation!"

    i wear shorts, but i would rather wear pants for this reason. when im old enough, i will fully embrace them because they will match with my greying hair and 5 year old son


  4. INFEST was a stellar slap-a-ham band

    i love watching old San Diego band clips on youtube of swing kids.

    i always thought drive like jehu was completely more of a DC sounding band, especially in the later stuff. but their influence is huge.

    gravity records was huge when i was growing up in nebraska. all the dudes rocked spock haircuts and wanted that sound


  5. i run my mac into an old audiocontrol EQ deck, then that into an Pioneer stereo reciever, then those into some old RCAs.

    when i get some extra cash im going to run the EQ deck into an old tube harp/PA address head (bogen etc), then that into some nicer speakers.

    other than that for guitar i have a 76 ibanez and an early 90s vox ac-30

  8. if you like the skinhead look, but dont want to go shaved head, you will end up back in 1990s brit-pop style

    look at early blur pictures, high white laced docs, fred perrys, cuffed levi, but with the shag brit mop

    i have pictures of Elastica, Suede, Morrissey, and Pulp all dressed in the vein of skinheads. In the video for "pregnant for the last time" by Moz and the one where they are all wearing Lonsdale shirts with cuffed sleeves, cuffed jeans, docs, and tucked in shirts, plus they are hanging out in a brick alley.

    pretty much skin style + hair care = 90s brit. add a pomp or add a shag hair cut

  9. search vintage Keds on ebay. womens.

    all shoes are unisex in theory, and as mens high style shoes get narrow and pointy toed, they are just turning more into a female cut.

    common projects, while stellar material and construction, are selling seasons old cheap keds to men for high prices.

    i am a 9.5, i wear 11 in womens keds. $12.99

    ^find your conversion and search for it.


  10. for me, i wear a 29 in cheap monday and i have two pairs of 31 april 77, the waists are large, but they fit perfect in the thigh and leg, straight and slim but not painted on. i love em, the HI-STANDARDS were my first and fav, but i really like my white colordrives as well. anyway, the material of colordrives is thinner and "falls" different on my legs, plus they are more cream colored than white which i find nicer than bleached out white.

    these were good buys and i'm very happy with em

    i want a pair of the purple (paired with a black shirt looks stellar) and i hope the burgandy is continued on into the fall because i could totally see getting it then.

    other than that the brand just needs to keep up the good work

    Oh and for the record ive never paid over 100 for either pair, got one off the supermarket worn once and off ebay fresh in the bag.

    and opium was selling these off for cheap on ebay and you could just go ahead and order them by phone.


  11. have the Canon AE-1 classic as well, with many accessories/lens kit

    toy cameras galore, one a plastic panoramic, all 35mm.

    Yashica_Super830.jpg

    yashica super8mm

    and a very cool Revere by 3M mini-super8mm thats plastic

    plus a yashica regular 8mm thats pretty much for looks only.

    want to get a Yashica T4 and a Bolex 16mm Reflex with motor.


  12. you can easily sew those yourself with any style of jeans, just oversize then take them in the crust punk way.

    or you can do what i did for a project, go to a thrift store, get a soft turtle neck (the kind that are slim fitting from the early 80s) or a thin fitting crew sweatshirt. turn it upside down, run a seem inside the waist band or sew in suspenders off the waist (suspender material at any craft store).

    turn them upside down and wear them as your feet through the arms. sew what would be the collar in or cut it out completely and then run a stitch through where it was to close it off.

    the more crazy the print of the sweatshirt the better, it will look like the fit of Cassette Playa stuff and they are fun to make. skin tight legs that have stretchy ends, but a bulky waist section thats long to your thighs.
