Graduated HS in '87
Same - though I was a townie at that point, having graduated and found a job in my college town.Met my now wife in college in '97.
Our computer had Dial-Up.
Admittedly, most of my exposure to 311 was in the early 2000s. Probably Soundsystem at the end of 99 forward.
I had a friend in high school that had one of those.I briefly dated a girl who had the prize Guts Aggro Craig piece in her dorm room.
That was the coolest part about her.
90s movie highlights definitely include riding my bike to Blockbuster and renting every movie they would allow.
95-98 music was pretty much just these for me...although I don't much remember good fight or bridge nine. I'd also throw in in Hopeless Records.
My emoji really had more to do with the guys back then who were very into 311. They were definitely the “hey, it’s super dry out here this week, so it’s gonna have to be $70 for the eighth” kinda dudes.
