true confessions

I used to LOVE this band.Who's this? Seriously, you don't recognize them??? It's Poison! Remember?? From, like, 1988!?!?

What in god's name was I thinking??? I aspired to play guitar like C.C. Deville (the one with the creepy white-blonde hair...). The first song I ever learned the chords for was "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

See the way they write their name? All slanty and cool? I wrote "Poison" in all my notebooks, just like that, when I was in the 8th grade. I thought it was SO AWESOME.

Anyway, I just read today that they're releasing an album of covers and I think I actually shuddered. Yikes. I won't even pretend to be interested in the new album, though I wouldn't mind a recent photograph of these guys. Let's see if they ever woke up and washed the make-up off...

Hee. I loved them and I had their logo down pat too for notebook and Keds-decoration purposes. Sadly, their music didn't hold up at all. I can't stand to hear them now, even out of nostalgia.

I loved them too. But later. Much later. And a lot less makeup.
