Two new pins that I got for my Trek jacket came in the mail today! I found them on amazon!
• I got the cat pins from Etsy
• The space explorer and Saturn patches are from Newbury Comics
• I made the ds9 patch that’s on the center of the back
• The rest of the pins and patches I got from various conventions throughout the years so I’m afraid I don’t remember the booths I bought them from!!
I wish I could have told you more about how much your music has meant to me since I was in middle school, and how Don’t Panic and Last Young Renegade have helped me through some of the hardest parts of my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and I’ll see you in a month and a half 💕

You woke up and Chris’s side of the bed was empty. You longed for his arms to be wrapped around you, giving you warmth and comfort. You pulled the heavy blankets higher so they reached your chin. You heard pans banging in the kitchen and Chris yell “Shit!” You laughed a little bit as you pulled the blankets off your legs and brought your feet to the floor.
On this day in music history: June 23, 1981 - “Tom Tom Club”, the debut album by Tom Tom Club is released in the UK (US release is in November 1981). Produced by Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth, and Steven Stanley, it is recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas from November 1980 - April 1981. The album is a side project by Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz and bassist/wife Tina Weymouth, following the recording of Talking Heads’ “Remain In Light” album. When the band decide not to tour in support of the album, keyboardist/guitarist Jerry Harrison records and releases his own solo album “ The Red and the Black”, while lead vocalist David Byrne completes “My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts” with collaborator Brian Eno. The group take their name from a dancehall in the Bahamas that they visited during their previous visit to the islands. Expanding on the Funk and African rhythms used on “Remain in Light”, Frantz and Weymouth are also influenced by the underground Hip Hop culture in New York incorporating it into their project. “Tom Tom Club” also features King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew and Weymouth’s sisters and brother on backing vocals. Frantz and Weymouth’s US label Sire Records initially passes on releasing the album. Taken aback at the decidedly pronounced R&B/dance vibe of the record, they are unsure how to market it, feeling that it will alienate Talking Heads largely white fan base. The album is initially released in the UK through Island Records. Club DJ’s in the US discover the second single “Genius Of Love” (released in September of 1981), quickly making it a sensation on the dance floor and generating a huge demand for it. It’s only after the single sells over 100,000 copies as an import, that Sire schedules it for release later in the year. It spins off two singles including “Wordy Rappinghood” (#1 Club Play, #7 UK) and “Genius Of Love” (#2 R&B, #1 Club Play, #31 Pop). The albums innovative and distinctive cover art as well as the animated music videos for both singles are designed by famed pop artist James Rizzi (directed by Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton, and animated by Cucumber Studios in London). “Genius” only grows in popularity over the years as it is repeatedly sampled and interpolated into other songs, including forming the basis of Mariah Carey’s chart topping single “Fantasy” in 1995. The album is remastered and reissued on CD in 2009 as a two CD deluxe edition (UK & Europe only). It is also remastered and reissued as a limited edition 180 gram vinyl LP on pink swirl (Newbury Comics exclusive) and translucent green vinyl, by Real Gone Music in 2016. “Tom Tom Club” peaks at number twenty three on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
So this post is for ineedtofindabetterhobby! She messaged me and asked what are some cool places to shop, eat, and hang out in Boston? Sorry it took me a little while to answer, I was trying to compile a list and make it a meaningful post. The places I’m gonna post about are all places that I’ve been to and are by no means the ENTIRE list of places in Boston.
So there’s this burrito place in Brookline, which is a short bus ride on the 66 bus. It’s so cheap and SO GOOD. The burritos are huge and they pack them full of awesomeness. Definitely a place to try.
My PERSONAL favorite is Froyoworld in Allston. There’s a lot of build your own frozen yogurt shops in and around Boston, but this is by far the best. I have to go here at least once a month. I would love to go more. They have so many flavors and of course so many toppings. Short ride on that handy 66 bus.
So this one is an exception, as I was typing this my roommate came in and INSISTED that I put this down. I have personally never been here, but she has and raves about it. (She’s trying to drag me there now). Its on Newbury Street, so you can people watch (see below), but it is a great cafe for pretty cheap with great food. They have GREAT brunch.
So there’s Newbury Street, which is EXPENSIVE, but always has some very interesting things, but in Allston, there’s a thrift store called Buffalo Exchange. They have some of the higher priced things that you would find on Newbury Street as thrift items. They have a lot of stuff there, and its definitely a cool place to go on a Saturday. Once again, short ride on the 66 bus.
The Garment District
This place is the PLACE for costume attire, cool vintage clothes, and of course the PILE O CLOTHES. Downstairs they literally have a huge pile of clothes where people go in with socks on and sift through to get a bargain. The clothes in the pile are $1.50 PER POUND. If you’re willing to get down and dirty, this pile is for you. They also buy back clothes, so if you have some old clothes that you don’t want, you can make some extra $$$$ (what college student doesn’t need that)?
A store that is native to Boston, you can ALWAYS find something cool. They have a few locations: Harvard Square, Newbury Street, and Faneuil Hall. They have fun and quirky stuff that is pretty cheap. Also, you can find any music that you are dreaming of.
So I mentioned how Newbury Street was the expensive part of town, well its also where you can people watch! You could probably spot someone semi-famous if you looked hard enough for long enough. I’m not going to put it in the shopping part, but you can window shop. Sometimes my friends and I go in the really expensive stores and look. I mean hey, why not?
This place is great to hang out because you get to go through all of Boston by taking the T there, but you also are in one of the most historic parts of the area. You can walk on campus and imagine all the super smart people that have went there (I do that, is that weird?). There’s also some cool shops and coffee shops that you can check out. Not to mention, there’s an iHOP hidden around the corner.
Also at the request of my roommate. There’s always something going on over here because this is literally the center of Boston. Once again, there’s a ton of history here and a great spot to people watch. There’s Emerson near here, so always a lot of college students around. And there’s a huge movie theater right there, so something cool to do on a Friday night.
So, I think that’s about it for now. Thanks so much for the idea! Made me really think about places around the city, and also makes me grateful for living in such a COOL place.
Sasha Banks talking about why she kept her marriage a secret is kinda similar to the reason why I keep my love of wrestling a secret. fans are freaking weird and too possessive. i once read a forum post about some guy who complained that Sasha was super rude because she didn’t seem that interested in the 4 (FOUR?!?) title belts he brought for her to sign. who on earth is unsatisfied with only one autograph? wrestling fans. my best friend works at Newbury Comics in Boston and has met Sasha a couple times. why doesnt he think Sasha is rude like forum guy? it’s crazy how people will respond when you treat them like people.
what about that girl that tried to “expose” Paige for being rude when the girl was clearly interfering on some Paige and Alberto bae time, or the people the stalk Rollins & Ambrose, or the people that vilified Renee Young for having the audacity to date Dean? wrestling fans gotta chill. shoutout to Sasha Banks for speaking out against that. i think more fans need to be told that their behavior is not ok
okay, so, I think I got it, I’ll do the exact opposite of everything this book tells me to do in order to not die in a duel at the ripe age of approximately 47. Thanks for the excellent advice newbury comics!
On this day in music history: June 15, 1989 - “Bleach”, the debut album by Nirvana is released. Produced by Jack Endino, it is recorded at Reciprocal Recording in Seattle, WA from December 1988 - January 1989. The first album by the Aberdeen, WA grunge rock band is recorded in only thirty hours of studio time at a cost of only $606.17. Second guitarist Jason Everman finances the recording of the album in spite of not playing a note on it. Guitarist/songwriter and lead singer Kurt Cobain credits him anyway as a gesture of thanks. Issued on small Seattle indie rock label Sub Pop Records, the album sells about 40,000 copies during its initial release, but rises significantly in prominence following Nirvana’s hugely successful second album “Nevermind” in 1991. “Bleach” finally charts on the Billboard Top 200 in 1992 peaking at #89. It tops the Catalog album sales chart on May 7, 1994 one month after Kurt Cobain’s death. A limited number of copies of the original LP release are pressed on white vinyl. Subsequent reissues are pressed on numerous colors including marbled pink, clear red, swirled aqua blue, marbled bottle green, marbled purple. In 2009, the album is remastered and reissued for its twentieth anniversary. The LP configuration is issued as a double vinyl set (exclusively sold through retailer Newbury Comics) featuring a live performance recorded at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, OR in February of 1990. The LP’s also also pressed in multiple colors including white, blue marbled black and purple marbled black. “Bleach” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
