So, we went on tour with the Offspring in Europe, in 2000. We'd play for about 20 minutes and then spend the next 23 hours and 40 minutes sitting around on the bus. This led to our ill-advised hairgrowing contest, the results of which you can see here. This is me in Barcelona, about to hit the town. Davey and I rolled to a club at midnight that night, thinking we'd be fashionably late. They told us the place didn't even open til 2 a.m. and we should come back at 4, when the place was really getting going. So anyway, that was when Davey started growing his hair, because of the contest. Obviously, he won.

Spanish nightclubs, oh the memories.

Okay I have no memories. Unless I count that one with the magic show when I was like 5. But, I digress. Sure Davey won the hair thing, but you definitely win the being called Jade thing. (:

that is one awesome picture. I would love to go to Barcelona one day. I bet its beautiful there.

veiled_static said...

interesting past time, though it makes me wonder whether the winner was able to keep from cutting his hair the longest, or his hair grew the fastest.
hmmmm....

two posts in one day, you're spoiling us! do we mind? NEVER.

Derek.

Frisk said...

Hah, that was funnneh.

You aren't to far behind Davey, strive Jade! Strive I say!

Hunter beat you all. His hair grew so much it exceeded the limits of reality and now lives in some dimension just beyond our reach...

O.O

Mrs. Hoek said...

A hair-off is nice, but have you ever had a chop-off? The winner is the one with the best Porkchop sideburns.
That would be interesting, don't you think?
Sitting in the bus for that many hours...whoa. Cabin fever much?

shanagdi said...

I like your hair like that, but I like how it is now. Good story. Nice pic. Very studly.

Good timing for this story. My office mate returns tomorrow from Spain & I get hear all about his and Pedro's adventures. Though his stories are typically for adults only...& involve bears.

Skylar said...

That hair is kinda curly. Nice pose by the way. :-D Keep going with the stories. You know we love hearing it.

Autumn said...

I love the curly locks! You look adoreable! Your hair now is fabulous too, has flair!

rosebatz said...

rosebatz said...

That is sex sellin'. Where did you get those rad shoes?

kel. said...

I've always wondered what the story was behind that picture.
You should do that more often.
You know, explain the stories behind pictures that you know we've all seen.
Good hearing from you, darling.

Sonorous said...

I remember the dark-haired days!

Kingdom_Genesis said...

kickthecorpseandgiggle said...

im glad davey started growing his long hair it looks really hot on him even thoe he looked hot in all of his other hair styles. dont you agree? you also look really good in that picture even tho your looks are stunning and awsome no matter how you have your hair you always look great. by the way how are all the rest of the band doing?

Michael said...

ah bon? i think yours is catching up by now

blackviolet said...

I remember this picture! I used to have it saved on my computer. Remember when you scanned it and it was a huge white page with the picture? Haha.
I actually kinda liked the hair.
It was about time for Dave to get rid of the devil lock. I must say, I don't much like the blonde.

xFreedomBulletx said...

I miss the sexy mini-pomp hair from Art of Drowning and Black Sails, even the days of the slicked back look from Redemption 87 rocked but I guess those years are dead

Shy Girl said...

where you about to jump out of the window???? =)j/k

jadedgeekgirl said...

lol Davey may have beaten you in a hair-growing contest, but I think you win by a landslide in an overall best hair contest.

Your picture reminds me of a killer-cool rockabillie dude I know :P
