memory: in eight grade circa 2000 or so my friend emily and i built a mini volcano for our science project. we got distracted and typed the word volcano into a napster search, only to discover veruca salt. and oh my gawd. neither of us had ever heard 90s girl alt rock before except for in 10 things i h8 about you & we were both like this is the fucking shit. i’m 99.9% sure we actually played volcano girls on the classroom boombox as we presented our project. we got a good grade! that’s still our song to this date.
ps: i should prolly mention that we were paired together the next year for an english project in which we were asked to act out a scene from some shakespeare play & use background musical accompaniment. we chose nine inch nails la mer because we were both bb gawths but also thought the instrumentals set the mood of creep and tension. however the teacher disagreed and proceeded to almost fail us for not playing something classical. uhhhhhh whattttt?
