I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

We're talking to Dave in marketing and Randy in the Delhi office to see if we can't bundle some proposals together and drive home this pitch for the Kauffman account. We need you to back off on the weirdness a little and play some more user-friendly material that doesn't challenge or alienate our core clients.

baseball caps are great for keeping the rain out of your eyes when you ride a bicycle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/25/16 2:04pm crateslinger:

that's not a metaphor. I mean, like, riding a bike in the rain. Outside.

I remember an interview on MTV where they were explaining their name, and they were like, "Yeah, Jam is because we're all into basketball, and Pearl is a precious gemstone. And we put them together and liked how it flowed, Pearl Jam."

Baseball cap types like Pearl Jam.

Cecile, I was 13 I think, and I didn't figure it out until years later!

I also like the story about Kurt Cobain thinking "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was some sort of revolutionary statement when it was really referring to ladies' deodorant (and its scent being all over him)

Clay, when I was 13-14 I got my mom to sit down and watch the video for Jeremy, and also the entire Unplugged session on MTV. She sat there the whole time with her arms folded across her chest, making "tsk" noises and asking things like "So is this what you call, `alternative'?!"

In the old days, you only wore your baseball hat backwards if you were a baseball catcher off the job.
