Let me tell you why a blog about 1984. Well, the whole thing was triggered by the last album of the great electronic music band Daft Punk : Random Access Memories. Not by the name ( which can bring in some nostalgia), but by the song Get lucky. And not by the original version but by Stephen Colbert’s extremely hilarious and well made piece of TV show, part of The Colbert Report. My wife happenes to be a big fan of the show and she told me about how Stephen danced disco style on the daft Punk’s hit, so I googled it and I said to myself: omg , this guy is realy having fun, dancing like that . He is doin it like me when I was 16, when those disco clubs were still around…so, let me think…me in high school, yes..around the year 1984. What a great year it was!
This was the beginning. I started to search for pictures about bands, movies, all kind of events, I even found a few pictures with myself , my home city and so on. Initially, the idea was to put all those pictures on a board on the wall. It would have been interesting, but only very few people would have been able to see them ; a blog would be great, I could write a little bit about every picture, everybody interested could see it and maybe comment about it.
That’s it and here I am, telling stories about the year (’83) 1984 (’85). Whenever I’l have time and be in the mood,I will write a new episode – it will be like a five minutes time travel for me and all of you who feel that 1984 was a great year in your life.
See you back in ’84!
