Concerts and High School Scrapbooks

Mr. Kallisti came in from the garage cleaning project the other day, all excited because he’d found my High School scrapbook. It is quite a relic. Most of the stuff was put in when I was about 15-16, and then I added a bunch of music clippings from the late eighties, hence all the sugarcubes scraps. In any case, I know several of my freeeends who will get a kick out of this!
My favorite is my topless new wave fairy drawing (bad hands!) that is completely coffee splattered and cornered by a newsclipping of my friends burning the flag on campus. Sigh. Those were the days.

(clicky to go to scrapbook gallery!)

  1. Lucky you, getting to see the Pogues. I had tickets to one of their shows but Shane M. went and got arrested in Mexico and they were forced to cancel. Has always been a regret for me.
    DCD have regrouped and are playing shows in Oakland this fall, if you are interested. You probably already knew that.
    And I just *knew* you would have a kick-ass scrapbook. Even at 15 you had more creativity in your little finger than I could ever hope for.
    Muwah.
