Song of the Week: "Suburban Home" (Descendents)

In a couple of days I'm gonna be moving to a place that, according to friends and family, reveals that I'm finally "growing up." As you can imagine, these words are more upsetting than encouraging. To drown out their jeers, I celebrate with a song I've been enjoying since high school, from a record that, groove for groove, might be the catchiest of all time. So catchy in fact, I can imagine even Asian lesbian jock drug addicts forgiving the sophomoric lyrics and singing along. "Suburban Home" is not my favorite track on the "MGTC" LP, but every track on there is a winner in some way, and thematically it was just too perfect to pass up.

So with starting work up again, and with my records packed and stacked and probably no internet for who knows how long, posting will be even more scarce than it has been lately. This reprieve will also allow me a little space and time to make some decisions I've been grappling with about the future of this blog...

It's been a while man. El Cajon to where and what's this, "to make some decisions I've been grappling with about the future of this blog"? I hope all is well. The Descendents = memories.

Normal Heights to Lemon Grove, actually. I've been doing the whole roommate thing for about 12 years, and I'm finally getting a place of my own.

As for the future of the blog, I can't say just yet. After reaching the ripe old age of 3 earlier this month, I thought it would motivate me again, but I'm just not feeling it. After things settle down here, I'll have to see if it's just a phase or not.

Hopefully your Descendents memories aren't too unpleasant. I remember your last response about them being not too hot!

Anyway, have a fun remainder of the summer. I'll visit the Relics more often after I snap out of this thing. Later.

Okay, I think I might be ready to come back. Let me just scrape together a little more motivation...

It'll be good to see you rolling around here again. I worked for the City of Lemon Grove for almost five years until I drank myself out of a job. Lemon Grove Park (among other places) was my responsibility. Can't tell you how many used condoms, piles of puke and puddles of menstrual blood I've cleaned out of those bathrooms. Stop by sometime if you get the chance of at MR. Later man.

Marcelo,

Sure, I can have the Necro Hippies LP up by the weekend. I may have to take down the link after a short time due to availability, so be sure to check in in a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by.
