1992 is never coming back. Not ever.

Just...STOP.

(Hoot Hoot.)

The good Lord took it away from me.

Kalli Ko said...

can i get a hallelujah?!?

i'm sending this link to my brother and his 2 best friends who would go gay for eddie vedder in a heart beat if given the opportunity.

Rachel said...

Ouch. That's all I can say, really.

I disagree. Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage.

**before all you yay-hoos go all nuts on me for saying that, I KNOW that line is not from Pearl Jam. If you point out the obvious, it just makes you look stupid. And contagious.**

Ok...

sweetmama.heather said...

Sorry, but I rather like them.

Terresa said...

hmmm. a penny for your thoughts.

Azúcar said...

It's the same, nothing new, and all they ever play is Ten.


Jeremy spoke: he wants his name back.

Mrs. Organic said...

Let's just say I didn't get it in '92 either.

Azúcar said...

But I would be delighted, Phread, if you started wearing your flannels again. The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth.

b. said...

I've never even heard of 'em.

Back in the day, I was trying to come up with a list of which bands would have staying power like the Beatles. And Pearl Jam was my vote for most likely to always be good. Ohhhh, how foolish I was!

I spoke to Jeremy's wife on the phone today...

Cafe Johnsonia said...

Yeah, so I always thought the song Better Man (is that what it's really called?) said "She can't find the buttermilk." Which I guess I could write a song about some day. Sometimes I can't find it in my fridge. To my teenage mind it made sense.

Rachie said...

I still like Pearl Jam. I'm not following their tour bus (are they touring these days?) or buying their albums, but I wouldn't change the station if they came on the radio.

Here's a band I don't get--Bare Naked Ladies. They're so annoying they render me homicidal.

Heidi said...

Now I feel like I must send my husband to read your blog. Because if there was ever a man who can't let go of his high school addiction to Pearl Jam, it's my husband.

And it's annoying.

First time Dizzle ever played guitar and sang for me, it was "Last Kiss." Did the oowooowooohs and everything.

So I hope you'll understand that I have to leave just a tiny portion of Pearl Jam in my heart.

I am so excited for the coming installments of TIDG.

Come on, it reminds me of 34 Felt Hall in good old Heritage Halls!

I'm so glad "I don't get it" is back!! I was just thinking of it the other day when I saw a big metal star on the front of someones house!!

Michelle said...

I agree 100%.

kristenlibrarian said...

Don't call me daughter!

La Yen said...

I am purposely hanging some stars in my house. Because of you.

Tiffany UnTwisted said...

This coming from the woman who posted Of Montreal in her play list. Really? REALLY??

(and my ver word is OUI which is french for RRRREEEEAAAALLLLYYYYY?!?!?!)

Azúcar said...

I'll admit, they're hit or miss for me, but that song? Hit, hit, hit.

Let's pretend we don't exist
Let's pretend we're in Antarctica
