    well i discovered dino jr when i broke up with me girlfriend of 5 years..at that time was the slew of seattle made headlines through out the universe…and so i got into nirvana,pearljam,soundgarden,alice in chains…etc..but i when i heard ‘get me’..i was totally floored with j’s honesty with pain,loss & suffering of human problems…love,life…etc..from the riffs to the last chords…he didn’t hide his true-self of telling his emotions,frustrations of relationships..he just tell it straight from his guts ,veins…i love him..!!!..and so whn without a sound came out ..with it’s single’feel the pain’,oh god…i’ve got meself to become a ‘j-god’worshipper..right until now…i’ve since never stopped believing in him…thank you j..u’ve done a great deal in me life ..thank you very much….



    I discovered dinosaur jr when I was at school, and it’s is not a very well-known kind of music in my country (Chile), so it’s hard to find theirs albums.
    By that time, I was listening all that grunge things like pearl jam, but when I discovered the sonic chords and that amazing overdrive of dinosaur jr, I fell in love with it and I couldn’t stop listening to it…..till now…
    I think that J Mascis is a sort of "genious" and his music is the best thing that I could have recieved from life……
    It’s sad to think that I will never be able to see J Mascis alive because I don’t think he will come to southamerica, but…I used to think that of "the breeders" too…and they came here…so…why doesn’t J ?….
    excuse my english but it’s not my native language….
    and I just can say…J Mascis…thanks for your music……..and there is a lot of people waiting for you here…at the end of the world…. :)



    I was in a store saw a CD that my friend wouldn’t shut the fuck up about then bought it. Now I know why he incessantly talked and talked about them.

    The Cd was Where been sound and it was like 9 years ago.



    hey extranjero, thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts with us! :D
    It’s so cool to hear that there are Dino/J fans really in all parts of the world 8)

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that J will come your way one day. there must be some other fans in South America.

    big welcome to you here on the boards! :mrgreen:

    … very cool decision, I saw it :aliensmile:



    thanks a lot flying cloud….
    I’m keeping my fingers crossed too……It would be amazing…
    I’ve just bought "free so free"..and……wow…I have no words to explain it……I still loving the master……
    I want to ask you something….maybe it’s a fantasy but…….is there a possibility to have some kind of contact with J…either by mail or letter or something?…it may be a very stupid question, but…I just want to know….perhaps things are different there and the possibility exists…
    thanks……and I’ll read you soon…… :)



    out of all my years of gigging in the UK i have seen dinosaur jr and J solo the most, they have never failed to blow me away. when people ask me my top 10 songs Freak Scene is always number 1. such a great anthem for the music.


    penis tree

    I saw the video for "Start Choppin’" and vowed to get a Dino album next time I went to the shops (60 miles away!).

    I bought Green Mind and it became my favourite album of all time, and "Thumb" my favourite song.

    Alas, it’s not my favourite anymore.



    i had the luxury of being cool off the back of a friends brother, whose records we would always listen to while he was out with girls and having a life. Then however i committed a crime which i believe would have Mr Bush going postal on my ass if i did it today, in that the first song i ever attempted live for my first ever band, To Lift An Elephant, (Shit name, you can imagine the rest) was Freak Scene. I have no idea what i thought i was doing, and i am glad that i was so fucked that it is merely a hazy memory. i now DJ, and to rather self conciously complete the circle, the first track i ever played was Freak Scene, which was danced to by five blokes dressed as the Village People, for some strange reason. There was a time when all the people i considered cool loved Dinosaur Jr and Dinosaur, but now nobody knows what i am talking about if i mention them. i guess that means i am too old!


    ..maybe it’s a fantasy but…….is there a possibility to have some kind of contact with J…either by mail or letter or something?…it may be a very stupid question, but…I just want to know…

    maybe you could try writing to his management ?
