I found them through that movie "Rock n Roll Highs School".

I remember watching it as a kid and thinking "What's so cool about this band?" I was only 10 when the film came out. I thought they were made up for the film (ie. a fake band). As far as I know the film is out of print on VHS. It would be cool if my Ramone's CD box set also included a DVD of this film.

Fuck! This sucks.

Yes, it's true. I discovered the Ramone's through National Lampoon's Vacation. Just one of many reasons why I love that movie. Looks like I got the date wrong, though. The video came out in 83 (not 81).

I think you can still get Rock and Roll Highschool on VHS. I recently bought it on DVD. It was $14 at Best Buy. Couldn't resist. Riff Randall--what a babe! Plus, the dvd has a lame slideshow tribute to Joey Ramone. How can you resist??

Only half an hour ago in a pub in North London with Suanao and we're about to leave and he says 'yeah, I'll get us tickets to see Dee Dee'. And, now I get home and see this.

And it's fucking drugs, jeezus, how pathetic.

Well pissed off.
