What? Like Drakar drenched flannel and crusty socks?

Okee dokee, to get this thread started out here are pictures of a teenage Ghastly. 1983, Simcoe Composite School was my highschool, in a small town but the biggest of the small towns in Norfolk County.

This would be where you'd most likely find me after school, in the music room, behind the piano.

Rocking my leather tie before our annual concert band year end performance. Just going over my sheet music. I played Eb Alto Horn.

Trying to do the "bunny ears" behind a friend's head but the picture was snapped too soon.

I used to dress very "new wave". Did not go over too well in a small town at times but I didn't care. With my Commodore 64 and Thomas Dolby albums I was living in the future, baby!

Trying to get my friend's car out of the mud. We used to volunteer at the local cable station after school and my friend Scott thought we could take a shortcut through a field. He was wrong, we had to get towed out.

Goofing around in my friend's basement. We were shooting photos for our band. I thought it would be really funny to roll up the legs of my Adidas gym shorts (which were already really short, which was the fashion of the time) to make it look like I was naked. We thought it was hilarious at the time but holy crap looking back at this photo after all these years on the internet it's one hell of a creepy looking photo what with the wood panelled basement and all. Man, I can't believe how skinny I was back then. I failed my first two army medicals because I was underweight for my height and really only passed the third because the doctor took pity on me and saw I was putting on weight (not fast enough) and I promised I'd continue gaining weight. Wasn't able to start putting on weight until I was 25. Now I just have to look at a picture of food and I can put on weight. I can't quite make out the trademark on the bass but I think it was a Squire. Belonged to my friend Scott (the one whose car got stuck in the mud). These pictures are all black and white because they were taken by my friend James who had his own dark room and used to shoot in black and white all the time.

I have thousands and thousands of 90s Vancouver rave photos if they give a shiat.

🎶 With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido 🎶

My mother recently went through her house collecting pictures. After my wife, daughter, and sons went through them I heard "You were so skinny" and "Look at all your hair"  so many times that I've had quite enough of looking at late 80s me.

Driving repeatedly over a hill called "The End of the World" in an attempt to get my shiatty 3,750lb muscle car airborne.

Also, I failed physics class.
