Well, the Ramones were the first punk band, so idk.
Must be nice to live a sheltered life.
What's that supposed to mean?
Means you don't see shite right in front of your Chevy Chase...you're ignorant.
Hey, I'm sorry. No need to be like that.

Cockney slang. Cool I was on the phone with my friend who's in England the other day and she's adopted the talk, which is how I found out about the "'Arry Pot'ers in that French plait upstairs who don't give a Tom Tit about the racket they make. It breaks [her] bleedin' Lords off.

Translation: The squatters living in the flat upstairs who don't give a shit about the noise they make which hurts her ears. Mr. Green

Stop apologizing Wink

I liked Tommy better as a drummer. Most people think Marky was the better musician, but Tommy had more force and energy. He really fit well with the Ramones sound, more so than Marky's drumming.

My favourite quote describing The Ramones' concerts: '...was like standing on a train track watching the train come straight at you.'

I think Tommy worked better on that train than Marky.

The end of the 'Pet Cemetary' music video makes me cry, when they get lowered into the grave. George Stromboulopolous played it on MuchMusic after Johnny died, and that's when I really realised, 'Holy shit, there's only one left!'

I mean, CJ and Marky were, well, alright, but Tommy really belonged with them, through and through.

I always think that.
I found an amazing Ramones shirt the other week, and I almost didn't buy it because it had Marky's name instead of Tommys. But then I thought screw it, and bought it anyway. Very Happy

I bought one at HMV, in England, but they only had XL, and they don't sell those here in Spain. So I bought it.

I can use it as a blanket tbh.

I did that with a Replacements shirt. Bought it 4 sizes too big because I LOVE them and I've never seen one of their shirts before. lmfao

I get a lot of band T-shirts here very cheap, because I know this one punk who sells them in the JJ market, very popular for tourists, he sells them to foreigners. He makes quite a living from it too.

Anyway, he sells them in extra-large sizes, I don't know why, it's like only really big people can listen to the bands I like or something. So my recent sort of hobby has been to tailor a bunch of his shirts for a more reasonable size and for girls as well.

Not if you get it done properly. A lot of what I doing is re-seaming the sides to fit girls and shortening the sleeve. It's trendy to have super long shirts so sometimes, I leave the length.

It depends how it's too big for you, if the girth too big? Then you need to re-seam it and tuck in the under arms.

Also, when resizing T-shirts, often the collar looks a little off, so you may nee to have the collar re-cut.

I'm sure if you go to any old tailors, they can do it fine.
