I must confess when I came across this video via a post on Disqus, it brought some memories flooding back that I hadn’t thought of in – literally – ages.
The clothes, the music, the friends and fun. Such good times.
People and places my thoughts haven’t gone to for…
wait a minute! 2018 minus 1984 equals 34!
Yes um….double check the math….yep it is…
3 and 4
three decades plus 4
You can’t be serious! 34 years ago?! The number itself triggers a wave of anxiety in my ongoing struggle to not freak out! The panic, the turmoil, the existential crisis I face when I try calmly to consider facts. Basic facts everyone else around me deals with too as we all “get older” And they all seem fine.
But me, I’m having a hell of a time with it as I’m officially over-the-hill. Over-the-hill and beginning my descent toward the inevitable. Careening with ever-increasing speed toward the Grim Reaper
Many, many years and decades are behind me at this point in my life. And fewer and fewer are, statistically, going to be in my future.
I know this because I can do math.
And it’s very noticeable when I look in the mirror.
And I’m older than 80% of all the males in the United States.
Oh, and I get alot of stuff from AARP, but anyway….
Enjoy this peek at 1984 fashion. Nineteen Eighty-Four! NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR!!
Merged two things I love––slow motion 60’s fashion films (60’s-70’s fashion, in general) and one of my favorite tunes, Peter Godwin’s “Images of Heaven.” It has since been approved by the fabulous Mr. Godwin himself. Also feels like an ode to my time at Videofashion – Klara Tavakoli Goesche
One of the most exciting flashbacks to an all-time favorite of mine from the early 1980’s. The retro 60’s and 70’s fashion footage is great.
Images of Heaven in HD quality sound uploaded on YouTube by Marc D is worth checking out…
