This quote sums up to me the 1980s and that era in music and fashion:
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
– T. S. Eliot
The other day I ducked into an Urban Outfitters store.
This was a cheaper bracelet purse I found. What’s not to love about cheaper?
Are they solely a New York City thing? Or throughout America?
Browsing Urban Outfitters reminded me of shopping in Unique Clothing Warehouse in the 1980s.
Remember Zoot? Antique Boutique? Trash and Vaudeville?
All were clothing stores in New York City in the 1980s.
They vanished like Manhattan over the years.
Now there’s a Starbucks on every corner.
What’s sad is that Tom Petty died. There was a tribute to his music on a WAYO show.
For a burst of music reminiscent of the 1980s you can go on WAYO FM.
The Sunday afternoon show streamed live via their Internet website features songs like the B-52s “Give Me Back My Man.”
Kate and Michael host the show. They’re two great disc jockeys.
The radio station broadcasts from Rochester, NY.
As of today, I’m writing a second memoir. I’m keeping its contents under wraps like a pashmina. I hope to publish this second memoir later in my fifties.
Just to say here it will be a version of Left of the Dial in overdrive.
With music, clothes, and boys.
