Um, what can I say about this one? Just something about it being one of my first memories (early school years or even earlier). Never really got the meaning of the song entirely, but it was the first time I heard about England! (had listened to Bangles maybe last year, but just today recalled this again. )
This takes me back to my early twenties and I dated a guy for 2 months who then moved to Canada
I don't want to double post BUT...this is the thing I was referring to (Alice in Chains, well, no I think someone had a photo too. either way, this song came to mind last night...not to be confused with NIN "down in it" or something. now I forget. maaaany years ago!)

ok, but seriously (last multipost today)...has ANYBODY heard this band or even know this song, for instance???
oh my gosh! that quickly took me to this one. (Trust Company-The Lonely Position of Neutral) I did not know there was this alternate version for this song. As if I couldn't love it any more! ugh! and on the topic of going back in time, there's only one person who shared this passion for this record, or talked about it...a stranger I only knew for a few months?? hell, I'm already forgetting. Wow!

Summer, 1996. I'm 15, we recently moved to Nottingham and I wasn't enrolled in school having got used to not going after being kicked out of the 2nd one. I got a job learning panel beating and paint spraying. We had the radio on all day and I remember the first time I heard this I was just rinsing down a car after flatting the paint. I'll always associate this song with a baking hot day, cellulose paint dust and the hosepipe.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street, you have to be able to pick out the easy meat...with your eyes closed.
I don't much like Placebo, but I like the first album as it got played a lot when my friends were getting their first girlfriends/ boyfriends and I got nobody. A theme that was to continue. Lol. But I don't like the other albums much, an occasional track is ok but this album is pretty solid in its static place in time in the 90's. Just had its own feel.
Garbage was in the line-up for the first real (my own choosing) concert I went to. Also was Cake...this show was later though.
My first memory of the following video was in jr. high art class. Omgsh, it's coming back!!! I drew the dopest "banana" car (haha idk, like something from my imagination. I can't draw cars really).
Then my friend wrote on there "he's going the distance". And maybe I learned, or re-learned about that song...and got the album. (think I...gave that to "someone" too ^^) Anyway, definitely a strong memory to this one!

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

50locks: Is there an app for this? Its really hard to use on my phone lol

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
