1978-88, I think you'll find.

I like to think that J Neo Marvin used Comic Sans intentionally to piss people off.

Whenever I see pictures of 70's/80's punks, I'm always struck by how un"punk" they all seem to look. It's almost as if they don't care about fitting into something. There's a word for that but it escapes me at the moment.

Nice, takes me back. You can almost smell the Aqua Net. No Germs photos though, which is a bit of a bummer.

I recently discovered this photostream of '80s punks from Ottawa. Even though I'm a bit younger than these kids, it is the closest I have ever been to the traditional definition of nostalgia (i.e., "the painful homecoming").

This website takes me back to 1996. Probably built using HoTMetaL

Ah the Mabuhay, how I miss it. How I miss walking about 5 blocks from my parking space to the club past the tittie bars. How I miss wondering what would happen to all that grass over the bar if someone's cigarette ever got flung up there.

This is all great, but I'm always a sucker for photos of the Minutemen especially when the commentary confirms my feelings, "It's been said before by better writers than me, but there was something fundamentally human about this band: even at their most 'musicianly', they never seemed self-indulgent, because their welcoming, down-to-earth yet challenging nature always showed through."
