Mosaic Woman and I just watched a music video from the 1980's. We laughed. We remembered. We were scared.
I play lots of jazz in my classroom, you know anything to rile up the masses.
One angry young man used to say..."Why don't you play rock music?"
My answer.... "I am no longer an angry young man."
So what took us to a place of wanting to watch a video by the Cure. It was a rather cool movie called Starter for Ten, which was set in 1986 and the lead was a freshman at university. The soundtrack was a flashback. I graduated from college, toured the Catskills on my bike and ended the year cutting my hair to teach at a military academy. I owned jeans with many holes. Mosaic Woman was beginning her college days in her purple high tops and a pin of a snake with a nuclear missile in its mouth. I think you could say we were angry about a few things and we listened to rock music.
so here is the video: The Cure: A NIGHT LIKE THIS .... not one of the several The Cure songs featured in the movie, but was on an album I owned/own.
where were you in 1986?
By the way... I am still angry at times, I just like jazz these days. However, I see myself digging into my musical past as I spend time in my studio this weekend...
The shower curtain mandala was soldered last night, now I just need some sunlight and my camera.
