It's almost 2010...damn! haha. i don't know about the rest of you but most of my youth was spent in the 90's. since it's been about a decade since then i just wanted to reflect from back in the days. Here's some things i remember.

*all the asians wore crazy baggy pants from anchor blue (beyond baggy or HUGE)
*guys used to wear sandals with straps
*asian gangbangers used to sport long bangs (a lot of asians did this....including me LOL)
*going to warehouse to buy a single tape of bone thugs n harmony 1st of the month
*marlboro used to have marlboro miles
*the chain smokers had enough miles to get a marlboro jacket (in blue or red)
*everyone in your group throwing in marlboro miles to try and get that pool table
*a lot of filipinos were Gz back then!
*guys used to give each cigarette burns for the hell of it
*only asians were into fixing up imports
*all the girls wore bebe tank tops
*all the girls took studio pics and wrote in the back of em (remember having stacks of em)
*all the girls had that cartoon pic of that asian kid kissing that asian girl on the cheek holding a rose on their folder
*walking around the streets with your boys meant you were sure to get hit up
*magic mountain used to be known for throw downs
*after the fox 11 special on asian gangs all of a sudden they were everywhere
*hearing about the early 90's and how crazy they were
*koreans, chinese, vietnamese, cambodian, filipinos, and etc didn't mind hanging around each other. in fact, it was encouraged..... AZN PRIDE~!

am i forgetting anything?

Haha, yes, at Audiotistic the trance room was affectionately known to many as "Little Saigon". I never really got into the rave scene, but Audiotistic was the sh-- for a bit there. Last time I went though I remember taking 2 tabs and doing a few lines (I was never really into E) then I got separated from my homies and somehow wound up in the trance room just in time to have about 15 fools hit me up, who I didn't want beef cuz I was baked out (I could barely speak) and then watched as they moved on and jumped some fool who I guess got shanked. Talk about a bad trip haha. I don't even know what the hell I was doing in the trance room to begin with haha.

-Butterfly knives, I dont know if it was just me and my close homies but for some reason we all had them and used them more to just slip styles with rather than as a shank.

-Like Finito said, had a bunch of homies who were breaking, couple Koreans, even made a few new homies who I'd otherwise have boxed with because they were breaking. A couple of filipino and korean heads who were ex-PR, and some other ex-Gs who were getting into breaking, right around the time I was smoked out, banging back, getting into that underground hip hop.

The thing about the bangs had me rolling, I had them for a bit, till one night I got drunk and my homies took the clippers to my head, and I've rocked a shaved head ever since, either bic'ed or step 1, its just easier that way.

-Hitting up Knotts Scary Farm on a weekend and sneaking in by running down the rocks right where fools can pan for gold until they caught on and fixed that, also posting up a the McDonalds on Beach by knotts trying to find someone to gank or smoke with.

-Fools used to use Binaca, that breathmint spray, and though I never remember buying a bottle I always remember having a few in my dresser drawer for some reason.

-Marlboro Milds came out in the late 90s and every menthol smoker had a pack

Oh and whatchu know about the homies dad getting the Marlboro Mile pool table? We used to post at the homie's pad in buena park, this Filipino fool who lived behind peak park, before and after heading out to The Block. Dude's dad used to let us do pretty much whatever so long as we kept it in the garage, and all he ever asked was for us to kick down our miles. I dont know exactly how long it was, but I know it was a few years, and by summer of 99 he had the pool table straight up in the garage. I still shoot on that table from time to time whever I stop by to visit.

And a ton of other hood stuff that really isnt worth mentioning

LOL at this thread. Damn, I remember fools passing away and getting locked up. Remember crack gave way to shabu. I remember the youngsters taking it to the next level, always heated, always blasting. Guys started doing time more than the guys from the 80's.

The 90's is when the other Asians really started gangbanging, started making their identity known.
