20 years of All Hallow's EP

HB to maybe my favorite overall AFI release. Some scattered thoughts:

-Calling Nitro’s 800 number (800-34NITRO?) to order the 7" with my parents’ credit card.
-Getting the CD at a show the day after it came out. Listened to it nonstop for an hour+ drive home.
-They’ve gotta bring Fall Children back live one of these days.
-Boy… felt like the sleeper on this thing when it came out, so it was an interesting twist when that ended up being a lot of people’s AFI origin story from Tony Hawk 3.
-“MUTHAFUCKIN’ TOTALIMMORTAL”

First afi song I ever heard was boy who destroyed the world thanks to tony hawk, but I had no idea it was afi, just knew it was my favorite song from the game. Fast forward a few years later, DU comes out, I become a huge fan instantly. Then I discovered the rest of their discography and freaked out when I found out my old fav song was also afi.

I also want them to bring fall children back, that’s one of my top 5 afi songs :jack_o_lantern:

I wanted to share this cross stitch as its the first pattern I have made myself that wasn’t absolute shit. Seriously, I suck at making patterns but I’m learning.

I’m not too mad at how it turned out but will probably try again with fabric that’s not so cheap it stretches as this did.

Just gonna leave this here. :smile:

Fun fact - in case anyone didn’t know, the music box at the end of Fall Children plays the theme from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. When I was a little kid I had a music box that sounded just like it, and I ended up breaking it not too long before I found AFI. I remember the first time I heard this EP was late at night and that damn music box at the end scared the shit out of me. I thought the one I broke had come back to haunt me. :rofl:

Editing to add:
I AM THE MISPLACED!
