I love the 80's, and am probably the only kid my age in the US that wears a "members only" jacket to school. It's too small for me, but I don't care because it rocks. (yes, it's one of the fabric ones, not one of the leather ones.)

Anybody else have one?

Crap.

There was a time where I thought that was the coolest jacket ever. And yes, I had one....maroon.

I don't keep clothes though, when they go out of style, I either usually toss them or donate to the Red Cross.

Mine looks like the one in the picture.

It's one of my winter jackets... it heavy and padded. Not one of the lightweight ones.

It's the second one I've owned. The first one I bought back when they were really in style. I bought this one a couple of years later when the first started to wear out. It's still in very good condition though, so I still wear it occasionally, although I havent dragged it out yet this year... just not enough inside pockets now that I have to carry a cell phone on top of sunglasses and a wallet, so I switched to something else.

Come to think of it, nobody has really said anything about you at all.

So, you ROCK!

Picture of a youngish edlib wearing said jacket, with friend (a 9-foot boa constrictor named "Noah"... Noah the Boa, get it?!??)


Taken the year I graduated high school, I believe. That would have made it '88.

Wow, that makes you older than me. Here I thought I was the resident old fart around here....just kidding.

I graduated in '92, unfortunately I don't have any pics of me in said jacket. I was in grade school when those were the item.

Nope, I'm old.
Older than most of the other posters I know. I turn 35 (egads!) in June. A couple of contemporaries that I know of, but few that are older.

Gunner's still older than me tho... That always makes me feel good.

As far as I know, Stormhammer is the oldest. I think he is close to 40.

Man I graduated in 2003 and sometimes I still feel old around here.

Anyway, I know Collective Soul isn't a 'classic' rock band, which is what we've focused on here, but they are still one of my all time favorites. Any takers?


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

Is that a red-tail, Edlib?

My bro has a Comlumbian redtail. We don't have a big enough cage for it, but it's still groing. A while ago he also had a Burmese, but he didn't have a liscence for it. We think it wound up in the the St. Louis zoo.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

Not really sure. It was at a zoo in upper-state New York. I was on vacation with a group of friends up there. A bunch of us were watching as the keepers brought out various animals when they hauled out this snake. I went over to it and reached out my hand to touch it's head, and it just went straight up my arm and up and over my shoulders.
Turns out there was a cage of small (and becoming increasingly agitated and wary) birds they brought out right on the other side of me, and I just happened to be the shortest route for the snake to take to get there.

I just remember the name after all this time because it rhymed.

It's all in the attitude my friend!

I couldn't tell you where in your state the zoo is (or used to be...) It wasn't much to begin with... really just a petting-zoo type place.
Once you get me further North of the Saratoga Springs/ Glens Falls area, I really tend lose all my bearings. I just know we drove North on some windy back-roads though some fairly hilly terrain for a long while, when somebody said "Hey! Let's stop in here!"

Hey, edlib, if this is really you, and I have no reason to think otherwise, man you're one cool dude, exactamundo. I was like 12 back then. Like that little greenhorn behind you staring at your.. jacket.
And somehow you remind me of someone I know. He's also wearing those dirk diggler sun glasses but not the hat, though it's cool. And he's from Africa.. oh, he is not "black", amazingly enough there are "white" people born in Africa, too.
Plus, surely he had one of those "snake happenings" already. But i guess not with the right snake at the right place with the right birdcage. Oh you guys are all so exciting. .. Wait. I like WOMEN, m'kay?

Dude... I refuse to eat that cake now. Well... OK. But only a piece that wasn't touching your ass!

Yeah... I was trying to be a rock star back then.

To bad I really don't have a picture of me when my hair was down to my butt. Or one of me in my fringed suede jacket. That was too kewl.

Nope I've grown up a bit now.

What I look like now:


How I see myself:


More pics (although old) of me here. I'm the one in the safari jacket and baseball cap in all the pictures (as if you couldn't tell.)

Hmm. You seem to see yourself as Steven "the guitarplayer" Spielberg.
I think i never drew any pictures of myself, except the ones from 1989 where i wear a space suit. It could be anyone though, because of the helmet. I tell you I was completely hyped by the special 20th anniversary of the moonlanding tv show. But living in the GDR i hardly have seen such thing before.

However, regarding the recent descriptions in the one year thread, you seem to have a lot of different things to do in your job. I love it if there's something else, even unexpected to do every single day.
Being a computer monkey I sometimes have to travel around and confuse customers, if not then I'm sitting here at this bomb site (just like right now).

As we can see here clearly, photo mobiles are teh suck.

Why, yes. Yes I do.



Alright... the self portrait was done super quick, and the nose may be a little off...

But a couple of people have said to me that they think I remind them of Spielberg, so there may just be something to it. More than once people have asked me if I'm a film director.

I guess it's the beard, all the baseball caps, and safari vests and jackets.
A lot of my biggest personal heroes happen to be directors as well: Spielberg, Lucas, Jackson, Scorsese, Coppella, Kubrick, Ed Wood...
Perthaps I missed my true calling in life. Hmmmm...
