Flashback Friday!

Richard Prince, Untitled (girlfriend), 1993

Any wild plans for the weekend? I have a busy weekend ahead of me, starting with a heavy metal concert tonight. LOL!!! I know, I know -- go ahead and make fun of me! It should be fun. I don't even know the band's music [ALL I KNOW IS THE SINGER IS SO CUTE AND CHARISMATIC!!!], but I am bored and ready to be entertained by the band and the crowd. And I look forward to seeing how everybody is dressed. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the chicks at the show dress like the lovely ladies above. HAAAAHAHHAHAHAH! 

I went to an Anvil show a while back at The House of Blues, and it was such a trip to see the crowd. Most folks were in their 30's to 50's, and it looked like the majority of the men (and many of the women) had not updated their hair, clothing, makeup and/or overall LOOK since the 80's & 90's metal era. URGH! I am still a fan of the music, but my look has since morphed for the better. At least I think it has.

I am pretty sure I will regret posting these flashback shots of me (I'm the moron in the black top -- circa 1988), my little sister, and two friends (with commentary here), but whatever -- they make me laugh and think of the old days.

happy, drinking and making friends

just realizing it was probably pretty stupid to drink wine coolers, vodka AND tequila

about to hurl

KLASSY BROAD.  who does this?!  well at least i am not the one in the striped shirt.  LOL!


HAPPY FRIDAY!  Hope you have a super weekend!

WHAAAAAAAAAATTTTT!!!! oh no you didn't!!!!! YES YOU DID!!!!!

oh lady you just made my day with these pictures. it's YOU! i think this is the first time i've ever seen your face to put to your name. though i'm sure you've changed A LOT. the good thing is i am obsessed with the 80's and you are the epitome of that in these pics.

HA! sorry i'm not laughing at you...i'm laughing with you. what's up with the striped tee dude?! and the hurl shot...CLASSIC!!!!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this! you just made my week a whole lot better.

BAHAHAHAH! Love this and love you even more for posting this! F'ing amazing!! The best part may almost be the wine coolers...so funny!
Post more! Post more!

Thanks for the teleporter ride back to my high school years.

You rocked those high-waisted acid wash jeans. ROCKED, I say!

Shannon said...

I like reading your blog b/c you are ballsy and funny. These photos further prove that point. I keep looking for Jon Bon Jovi in the lot somewhere with you, but haven't found him yet. Have fun at the show. Clutch is probably opening up for them (they've been doing so throughout this tour) and they are definitely worth catching too if you can get there early. Throw some metal horns for the rest of us and ROCK ON.

Cheryl Ann said...

omg - the photo of you almost hurling! good for you for not...just the THOUGHT of tequila + wine coolers makes me want to lose it.

have fun tonight!

Lorena said...

Dude your pictures look like my high school pictures !
I guess it's because we are from the same era...
The thing was I could NEVER get my hair up, not even with cans of hairspray-
BTW you still got those pairs of jeans ?

Jude said...

OMG, wine coolers and awesome big hair!! Can someone instantly transport me back to the goldie-oldie 80s/90s now? Please?! I can't believe you get to go to a metal concert tonight, please take snapshots of anyone dressed like that first photo and have an amazing time! :)

Tia said...

So great. I'm so glad you posted these!! Now every time I read your blog, this is the mental picture of you I will have...bahahaha, wine coolers!!

Have fun rockin out!!
And Anvil?!?! Oh man, those guys are hilarious!

Caroline said...

LOL!!! That was me...big hair and high wasted jeans. Oh lord! So hilarious to see those photos...totally brings me back. Have fun tonight!!

Melanie's Randomness said...

OH MY GAWD! These pics are freaking hilarious! Sometimes I'm glad I missed the 80s (for the most part I was born in '84 and my Mom managed to still keep me trendy) and then sometimes I wish I had been there as a teen/young adult. You are too funny posting these. That car is sweet though I hope you kept it!! Enjoy the show tonight!

Char said...

hahahaha!! look at those tight jeans on the guys. i forgot what it's like seeing tight guy jeans - not that i want quite the fit back, i'm so over baggy jeans on guys.

love your rad car

krista said...

ohhhh, girl.
i was more of a bon jovi/poison girl myself. i have vague recollections of wearing a bandeau top with a blazer and leather skirt to david lee roth concert. and i remember some sad incarnation of acid wash and la gear hightops at def leppard.
we would have been friends, it seems.

Sweet crispy chocolate-covered caramel Christ on a stick! Not Zakk Wylde!!! I hate that dude. Hate hate hate. I may need to blog my hate later. That dude has slapped his signature on more things than Oprah. He's got a dozen signature guitars, a couple of amps, 4-5 effects pedals, hot sauce, cookware, monster truck tires, and diapers.

HATE!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Oh LAWD I love these pics ... especially the "about to hurl" one!

WendyB said...

Totally made my day.

Kitty Stampede said...

AMAZING!!! you are a flipping DOLLFACE. you actually remind me a lot of the Joan Jettster.
Damn, I wish I was going with you. We would rock that motha. and point and laugh a lot. lol.
I hope you have a total ROCK-OUT time. and you drag home a hot piece of metal ass...bahahahaha...i kid, or do I?! ;)

p.s.- holy underboobs.

Dancing Branflake said...

Emelie - C'est LA vie said...

The sheer awesomeness of those pics is almost too much to handle. Love love LOVE all of it. Xx

Trixie said...

Wine coolers

C.B. said...

Vivienne said...

Those acid wash jeans!!!! Oh my! Until just now I had successfully suppressed that 80s memory. Thanks for nuthin'!

十十f十 said...

ooohhh thanks for posting this, J. enjoy your weekend!

blog response: i used to hate teal too! i think the dark nail polish is a purple. goes with the gold tip. i like almost all the combos, actually.

SimoneV said...

Bah, these shots are awesome! I love KISS!
May I ask are you Australiam? The pictures just seem to epitomize Australian culture of the time, to me.
Mmmm camaros :)

Kristine said...

We should have been hanging out and hurling together back in the day! Too adorable. Have you seen the Anvil documentary? I think you'd love it.It played a couple of years ago at Hotdocs in Toronto and Anvil came on stage after the film and everyone gave them a standing ovation.I was so moved I had to buy their latest cd and have them sign it for me.
Rock out tonight!

Alicia said...

YES!! you know whats awesome about this....that i've been reading your tweets all night long! so now i'm totally picturing you circa 80s gear rocking out to cookie monster.... rad. have an awesome weekend doll, sounds like you already are!

chloe said...

Georgina Dollface said...

Oh the acid wash jeans! I loved them so much I even had a matching acid wash jean jacket and acid wash denim pencil case. Whodaloser? Iam!Iam!
Thanks for sharing these photos, what a great laugh! - G

Susan Erickson said...

Does everybody go through drinking coolers, vodka and tequila together and then hurling? It must be a rite of passage into adulthood or something....You were quite the rocker....I'm sure you will be playing the bad girl at the heavy metal concert as well....why not? We all love BAD!...try not to puke though.....

Style Odyssey said...

"blast from the past" photos- i love it. glad you shared.
by the way, your blog header is brilliant!

heather yalin said...

These pics are hilarious! That HAIR! I love seeing these, definitely put a big smile on my face this blustery day! Thanks for that!

Kara said...

Lol, EPIC photos. Looks like you kept it classy ;)

The important part of any band is at least there is some man candy to look at in case the band/the venue/everything else sucks so it sounds like you are in for an awesome weekend.

Is kinda scary that some people never update their look - my son made the comment to me about a lady at the grocery store "Hey, the 80's call and want their hairstyle back" and I had to reprimand him for being mean and possibly hurting her feelings if she had heard me, but a part of me was hoping she had, because da$m, that high-teased feathered look with obnoxious blue eye shadow as down right scary looking.

ana b. said...

Oh man you look like a TOTAL 80s hipster. AND THAT CAMARO!!!!

Sister Wolf said...

Priceless. Let's make plans soon!!!

SabinePsynopsis said...
