My best friend from college went to grad school with the guy who in high school had been named Sassy's best boyfriend. I was blown away when I found that out after meeting him, because I remembered the magazine piece about him really well. And then it turned out that the girlfriend who had nominated him for best boyfriend had cheated on him once they got to college with a guy who had later become my first serious post-college boyfriend.

Turns out 1991 is also the year a certain hacker group was named "Sassiest Underground Computer Group". So! Big year for sassiness in Sassy.

Now that we have that settled, what's the latest Timberdrama? It seems to be broken, from my vantage point.

Your timber probably isn't actually broken. It's just blood vessels and ligaments.

My timber is not broken, I don't think. The last two posts there are one from Quiggin and one from Belle (where she does a 419-style banning of Mao).

I missed the Thor the Thrifty Musician thread. 1991 was when both I and a good friend went off to college. (bear with me.) He went to Reed, where he's now a professor. On weekends, when not drinking coffee at Waffle House until we vibrated, we'd stay up all night listening to the Swans. there were other shenanigans, but I think I told at least one of those stories here.

So. 1991.

Same. From home I can't, but work is fine. And the RSS feed works on my phone.

I guess I was in 3rd grade at this time. I remember the 5th-graders hung a big banner saying "SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT" in the cafeteria.

1991 I was in HS, just getting into the activist scene for real (I believe my first demo was fall 1990, but I didn't become part of any group until the Gulf War started.) My sister liked "Sassy" pretty well, so there's a good chance I read this article in the original.

The Challenger blew up when I was in third grade. And the teacher had gone to the coke machine, because some kid had earned a Personal Pan Pizza and a coke for finishing the whole year's worth of reading assignments, and when she came back she said "It blew up" and we all thought that she meant the coke machine. Hilarity ensued.

Little-known fact: Charlton Heston's "You blew it up!" speech in Planet of the Apes was actually referring to a coke machine. The scene was recontextualized during editing.
