Soundgarden's fourth album, Superunknown, was released ten years ago today. It was one of the first albums that I ever owned on CD, and one of my all-time favorites. Not long after I got it, I bought the blacklight poster for the album from Spencer's in the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre. This was during a time in my life when I was living with my grandparents in West Hazleton and with my dad in South Florida, so my poster racked up quite a few frequent flier miles.
I was a freshman in high school when this photo was taken. I'm the one without the fur (the dog is Bailey and the cat is Kiora). At the time, I was living on Water Oak Court in Palm Beach Gardens with my dad and his girlfriend, Julie, and she was cool enough to let me hang my Soundgarden poster on the wall behind my bed.
