Folder circa 1994

Another busy week; totally forgot about Tuesday Coolsday. I'll be back in the groove next week. In the meantime, here's a gem I found at my mom's house last weekend. This was a folder of mine from grade school, probably around 1994 or 1995 (7th grade). I was getting into music so I doodled lots lyrics that would be stuck in my head during class. Recognize some oldies in there?

I was inspired to post this after seeing Gail Anderson's "My Best Work" article in How Magazine. While my folder is not nearly impressive (I like to think it is because she was a few years older when she made hers), it's still fun to see that great designers doodled about music during class just like me.

Don't worry teachers, we already learned that when you doodle, you remember more.

P.S. Please be gentle about the stickers. There was a big smiley face thing going on in my generation...remember this poster?

I imagine a serial killer's notebook might look similar. Definitely as busy but probably not with all the chick lyrics =) I'm thinking more the lyric that greet me at the gym with my iPod in my ear. Also, what does the bottom left say? I can make out, "...caine" I don't want to jump to any conclusions about your youth though jk =)

pete - HA! A notebook decorated with lyrics from YOUR music would be terrifying and not suitable for mass audiences!! The bottom lyric is that old "The Eels" song - "Novacaine, for the soul..."
