Kid Marine is 3rd album by Robert Pollard, released in 1999. It is the first release of Robert Pollard's Fading Captain Series. Pollard has stated that the album is about Jeff "Kid Marine" Davis, the person pictured on the cover . Robert told Mojo magazine, "My personal favorite, a weird record, almost a concept album, about the typical Ohio male and what he does - drink, watch television, eat pizza. It got mixed reviews, there are people who hate it and others who think it's our best record and I'm on their side. I just love the songs. It feels like one piece, like it all fits together. I like the cover and I like the whole package."

Famous quotes containing the words marine and/or kid:
“People run away from the name subsidy. It is a subsidy. I am not afraid to call it so. It is paid for the purpose of giving a merchant marine to the whole country so that the trade of the whole country will be benefitted thereby, and the men running the ships will of course make a reasonable profit.... Unless we have a merchant marine, our navy if called upon for offensive or defensive work is going to be most defective.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“Never miss an opportunity to allow a child to do something she can and wants to on her own. Sometimes were in too much of a rushand she might spill something, or do it wrong. But whenever possible she needs to learn, error by error, lesson by lesson, to do better. And the more she is able to learn by herself the more she gets the message that shes a kid who can.”
—Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)
