Tumblr Photoset Reference Sheet
I don’t know if anyone else has been looking for this, but I’ve been trying to find a reference to all the different photoset layouts on Tumblr and decided to just make one since I couldn’t find one.
Makes it easier to plan out comics and other fun things with it!

Somebody raped our women,
murdered our babies
Hit us with the cracks and guns
in the early 80s.
For those that murdered me shall stand before God
To fall at the hands of fate, then out comes the rod!
‘I Can’t Go To Sleep’ by Wu-Tang Clan (feat. Isaac Hayes) is my new jam.
Last night, for the fourth time, I saw Dinosaur Jr live. Brandon went with me, which was great, because he always goes into these shows with a certain amount of trepidation…then he ends up loving it. I was kind of sick last night (which meant I drank a lot of Jameson), but being in a room full of thirtysomethings with Sebadoh shirts on made me feel good - as though things don’t really change after all. I thought about the past three times I had seen Dino Jr, and how each occasion had occurred during very specific and kind of monumental points in my life.
1. 2007. I had just broken up with my boyfriend of four years. I had just started drinking. Dino had just started playing live again in 2005, so I had been waiting for them to come to the east coast. They announced a show at the Fillmore in NYC, and I called my dad up (the guy who got me into Dino in the first place). We drove up and got to the venue way too early. I was decked out in my band sweatshirt at the bar, and my dad suddenly grabbed me and whispered, “THERE’S J. BEHIND YOU.” So I turned around, and J Mascis gave me the most hilarious look of confusion. He was wearing gigantic white sunglasses. The show was incredible, but we couldn’t get too close. My dad made us leave 45 minutes in because it was way too loud, even with earplugs.
2. 2007 (about four months later). Kevin called me and said Dino Jr was going to be playing at Black Cat in DC…. which was my favorite bar at the time. This is a pretty tiny venue, so the thought of being right up front to see J was too good to pass up. We wore earplugs and got some really epic photos, and ran into Fernando, who was with some girl who hadn’t received the earplug memo. They were drunk and headbanging in front of the stage, and I remember J throwing Fernando his pick. It was another great show, and I was happy to be seeing it with my two friends who loved them the most.
3. 2012. I somehow got word that Dino Jr was playing in NYC again… and this time, they were doing a reunion show of You’re Living All Over Me. Brandon had never seen them, so he went with me up to Terminal 5 (a weird, kind of large venue on 10th Ave, around where I used to live, which was really creepy). We met up with Kevin and Mike and hung out on an upper level. Kurt Vile was playing when we walked in, and I remember his hair hanging over his face while he sang. That guy tears me apart. Eventually, probably around 11, J, Murph, and Lou walked out. They played one of the most amazing shows I’ve ever seen. Mike and I were too intoxicated to even understand what was happening. Frank Black from the Pixies walked out and played “Tame” with them, and we stared at each other like…”what? is this happening???” Then, Kim Gordon did a MINDBLOWING performance of “DON’T,” a crazy Lou Barlow song in which he screams “WHY DON’T YOU LIKE ME” over and over. Lee Ranaldo and Johnny Marr showed up. I cried. A lot.
4. 2013. Last night we saw Dino Jr at Ottobar, which is about 5 seconds from our house. I was sick and knew Brandon wasn’t really looking forward to it, but how could I not see them when they were in my neighborhood? Once again, it was “the best show ever,” but I had forgotten earplugs. J played one chord in front of that massive Marshall stack, and I knew I’d have to drink exclusively whiskey. My brain would have to be numb before the band made it hurt too much. It was the loudest show I’ve ever been at, which was fucking amazing. I felt like I was being pummeled in the face with rocks. It was a very violent visceral experience, and I had forgotten how amazing that feeling is. It truly rocks your world. Now I remember why their greatest hits album was called “Ear Bleeding Country.” 24 hours later, I still hear mostly ringing in my ears. Good shit. Highly recommended.
