The 90's were 20 years ago

I'm sure you know this empirically, but has it hit home for you?  It did for me on Sunday I watched the PJ20 Pearl Jam's Twenty year documentary on netflix.  If you haven't yet DO IT.

Jesus it makes me feel it today, talk about a band that was a part of your life for such a long long time, part of your College, part of your High school memories, part of your Middle school memories that great white buffalo that you never got to see live even though they are from what feels like your back yard.  Songs I sang and still sing with my wife before she was my wife.

Fuck yeah talk about a great night, also my son is going to be a complete bad ass.  He slept through that whole one hour twenty minute documentary turned up way too loud like a boss.


I hope this video works for most of you, I have a different version for the international people but this song just cuts me up inside.

  1. Yep, this made me feel old too. I can't believe Pearl Jam was 20 years ago, and I can't believe Nirvana was 20 years ago either. That seems so ancient. I'm gonna go drink some prune juice and put some new tennis balls on my walker now.

  2. Thanks for adding plenty of links. Cameron Crowe + Pearl Jam.. What more could someone ask for? Those two '' things '' depict 90's the best way possible.

  7. Pearl Jam will always be legendary. Congrats on your son being a badass, sleeping through the rockumentary like a boss.

  8. When Hubs and I are on road trips, Ten always makes it way into to CD rotation.

    It's such a mind bend to sing those songs with him now, flashing back to singing them with him and our friends 20 years ago.

    PS - Well done lil music man!
