talk about NOSTALGIA!



Its so funny, Gav, Brock and I were driving around yesterday buying equipment and materials for the new photography studio at Remix...and I forgot how we got to the topic, but I said I loved Silverchair and Gavin was like "So do I, but no one knows who they are."

Then juss now, I hit up Yeezy's blog and saw that he blogged a Silverchair video...and I was like...they have a new video???
They're back?

Believe it or not, I was a huge rocker in grade 6 and 7...(Until Wu-Tang's 'Triumph' and the Beatnuts did 'Watch Out Now' hit and I totally switched genres...)

This video is just so weird to me, because they sound nothing like what they used to, and I remember Silverchair being teenagers...

Its been 11 years since they've dropped a single I can remember.
I know all of you guys are like...wtf? Rock...I dont give a shit about rock...lol...we've all gone through our phases.

But this song is about to hit mainstream (if it hasnt already)...just wanted to educate you guys on what they used to be like and how much they've grown...and its amazing how much Ive grown since then...

Wow...I still cant get over how different Daniel Johns (the lead singer) looks...
Like looking at this video reminds me of the band that me and two my blonde dude friends wanted to form back in grade 7...lmao...I didnt play an instrument...so we settled on me being the lead singer. lol

Here's the first video they ever recorded back in...1996 or 1995...I forgot...



Another fave song of mine by Silverchair is 'Abuse me.'

In case you wonder what other bands I used to listen to, Ive listed a crapload of bands and linked my fave songs...so click on the band names to listen to my fave songs of theirs.

Bush, No Doubt, Green Day (occassionally Sugar Ray), Oasis, The Wallflowers, Our Lady Peace, Coldplay (even though they came a bit later), Third Eye Blind, The Cranberries, Smashing Pumpkins, Aerosmith, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Well you know this is about music so I must respond! And it will be anything but short…yea another essay I know. My experience with rock is kinda of the reverse of yours. Coming up all I knew was old school R&B (thanks to my mom), Baltimore club music, Tupac, Changing Faces, Aaliyah, Monica, Brandy, R-kelly, Jocedi, Soul 2 soul, soul for real, tlc, Immature and whatever other early R&B/Hip Hop groups you can think of. And then I went to a middle school that was like very diverse. White kids, Black kids, Asian kids, every damn body. And through my friendships with the white kids I began watching MTV. And then I started getting into Limp Bizkit, Korn, Kid Rock, Blink 182, Lit, Silverchair. Even the occasional pop act like the Britney, Christina, and N’Sync. Hey, Hey! Don’t judge me…everyone listened to them. Also random acts like The Bloodhound Gang, LFO, Len, BB Mack. And then from there I’ve grown to love everything…well except some country and techno. However since this is a nostalgia trip…

I’ll just use a few of the ppl you mentioned and some I liked…This list will probably get long since I dnt know when to quit. No doubt-I like all of their stuff. Tragic Kingdom is the only cd I have tho and I got it in like 97 and loved it! Vertical Horizon- everything you want. Bush- Machinehead, The chemicals between us, and glycerine. Oasis-Wonderwall. Third Eye Blind-their whole first cd esp. London, I want you, Hows it gonna be. Smashing pumpkins- 1979 is DEF my favorite! Ooo..um the New Radicals- you get what you give. Silverchair- Anas song I ddnt know what this was abt until I read this interview he did abt its meaning. Limp Bizkit-the whole Significant Other cd. Korn-Freak on a leash, got the life. Blink 182- All the small things. Ricky Martin-Livin’ la vida loca. Enrique Iglesias- Bailamos. 98 degrees..Jordan Knight- give it to you. Smash Mouth-all star. Oh my I could go all day. Ah…those were the days!

And whats really good with that soundtrack to The Life and Times of William Nguyen? That’s jus what I’ve decided to call it by the by. What of its progress? :-) I’s waitin homie! Peace!
