Playing guitar in the house band for a Ramones night. Fukin’ a.
Had my new job long enough now to pass fair judgement. Verdict: I FUKIN LOVE IT
My friends sharing stuff like this on Facey-B is annoying. First off why let someone’s jeans ruin your day, and that’s not even why people wear them like that. Poor inner-city kids in the 80s/90s couldn’t afford new trousers and so inherited hand-me-downs from their elder brothers. The bigger your brother, the further down your arse your jeans would hang. So it became a way of saying, “don’t mess with me ‘cos my brother is bigger than your brother”.
Also because POC were* frequently persecuted and wrongly incarcerated by the cops which would lead to many attempts at suicide after a dozen or so arrests for no reason on top of living on the poverty line, so the police started taking their belts off them when they were arrested (which were used to hang from in lieu of a rope)
But of course, “gangster” culture is to be ridiculed by us civilized white people and gay sex is a punchline, so carry on.
The Ramones are back together…
