Flashback Friday: 1985

Ugh. That’s pretty much all I have to say about this shot. I’ll also tell you that it was taken at Camp Wahanowin, where fashion comes first. Or at least, it did when I was there. It was all about the clothes. I’m sitting here shaking my head… sometimes it’s painful to look back on the superficiality of the teenage years. Especially when I was so NOT the cool kid (but since I was best friends with a cool kid, I wasn’t a complete outcast).

From the cassette vault: oh man, do I have to pick? There are so many great songs from that year! This reconfirms my belief that the 80’s kicked ass, musically, if not hair-ally (see above). I’ll pick the one that probably made the biggest impression on me, and was (and still is) a wickedly cool video: “Take on Me” by a-ha. In case you didn’t know, a-ha was still making music as of 2009, and some of it is pretty good. I haven’t heard the last 2 albums, but Lifelines, and Minor Earth Major Sky are really decent. And by the way, I still want to be the girl in this video!
