Goner Message Board / ???? / How did you look in 1988?
Posted: Aug 4, 2009 7:01 pm
I wore T-shirts and acid washed jeans, sweatpants and ballcaps and some Jams that were already out of style. I never rocked the Zubaz or Aqua sock, couldn't afford a Jet Ski back then. In the winter it was dual layer sweatpants and shitty Nikes accompanied by an off brand big puffy blue jacket my mom picked out. Goner fashion show for GF6 ..??

Worst perm ever. Black tights and blue and black big striped mini dress. Ankle boots I still wear today. Fly eye sunglasses. 20 pounds thinner.

that would be the summer i had my mohawk. so if you know me now, imagine me looking pretty much the same, only about 3 inches shorter, with a mohawk, and 15.

i spent a good deal of that summer listening to "wig out at denko's" if i remember correctly.

C.O.C. shirt, levis, converse hi and a buzzcut.

Main difference these days is that Chucks are for special occasions only. Too much time in them yields the gnarliest foot cramps imaginable.

Pixie cut dyed with some sort of reddish-brown L'Oreal box color. Looked about 12 years old. Wore mostly ripped up leggings, indie rock t shirts or cut up pajama tops. Oh yeah, loved china flats too--both the slip on ones and the mary janes. BIG EARRINGS.

No makeup except L'Oreal Saucy Mauve lipstick.

'89. Can someone remind me why shaving the sides of your hair under a ponytail was a good idea?
Posted: Aug 6, 2009 11:39 pm
Tie-dye-ish green hypercolour t-shirt that turned neon pink when you blew snot on it. Black corduroys. Black adidas track pants with yellow neon stripes and stirrups. Cheap velcro shoes. Some kind of bad bowlcut.

Rampage was the shit! I was always the Wolfman.

Posted: Aug 7, 2009 7:07 pm
Weren't those hypercolour shirts the ones that used to get pre/teens in trouble for heavy petting??

My parents wouldn't buy me that shit, and I don't even think I was even petting myself in 1988.
Posted: Aug 8, 2009 9:52 am
Z Cavariccis and collared Coca Cola shirts.

When I finally saw the light, I was all Dr. Seuss top hat and marijuana leaf mardi gras beads. No tall bikes back then though.

quote from haunted george:

Joe, I remember when we were at that Rave on a ton of X. We were running down that grass hill and your Dr Seuss/Cat in the Hat-hat came off and you tripped into me and I swallowed my pacifier. I started bad tripping but those Phish/Hippie Neo-Hippie guys and that girl dressed like Zena Warrior Princess all grabbed my and stroked my body while chanting, "Mellow, Mellow, Mellow..." Later you choked on your whistle while dancing to the House/Jungle/trance re-mix of "James Brown is Dead"

I was always the Lizard. Duh
Posted: Aug 8, 2009 8:43 pm
I remember Kalamazoo being one of the cities you could destroy in Rampage, but we dont have that many tall buildings.
Posted: Aug 8, 2009 9:05 pm
Blonde devilock, Puma or Adidas white leather hi-tops, tight 501s, Ozzy or Megadeth shirt, flannel over that. Indeed not much has changed except the devilock won't be returning in this lifetime unless I join the Hair Club for Men. Saw Metallica twice on the Justice tour!

Posted: Aug 8, 2009 10:54 pm

Saw them twice also with The Cult opening. Steve Jones came out and played with The Cult at one of the shows.

Either a late era devilock hanging midface/ parted on the side or a buzz cut. Naturally gravitated to a look similar to the late 70's industrial culture paramilitary style, or just comfortable plaid thrift store pants and blank t-shirts. Dressed like The Music Machine once that year for speech class project on the history of garage rock.

im thinking i had white jeans and mullet, jean jacket and la gear shoes. 11 years old with a mustache. gold chain and glasses.
Posted: Aug 11, 2009 1:40 am
Man, when I was like six, I used to wear huge T-Shirts with tiny shorts and people thought it was weird but fuck it, right? I've still got a T-Shirt from those days, a Bugle Boy with all kinds of incomprehensible Italian all over it that I would wear in a heartbeat if it wasn't one of the rarities that was actually made for someone who's four feet tall.

Got one of my brother's wacky "weird science" looking button-up overshirts and it does fit me! Yeah!

Oh, I wasn't wearing glasses yet, I was six years old and tow-headed. Not the best combination in a 95% black elementary school but later one of my lead tormentors took to calling me "Cobbarelli" and telling anyone who'd listen that "I went to his birthday party in kindergarten! We ate sherbert!" Rad!

How I thought I was ugly and fat is beyond me... I also hung with the metal kids in high school, since "punkers" get beat up and they yell "nice hair DEVO"
