Who was that kid 25 years ago?

Totally off-topic to anything and everything, but…

Last night I watched We Jam Econo, the documentary on the Minutemen. It was 25 years ago that I last saw them, and the Minutemen t-shirt I had from that date was one of my prize possessions for quite a while.

The documentary is decent, although I would have loved more band footage and less “Oh, the band was so great” interviews—those watching the movie already agree. The movie was a flashback of playing their records (“Take that Huskers”) as I finished college and explored an emerging Deep Ellum scene. Funny, it’s not a period of life I usually look back on very much, but the movie captured it perfectly.
