8:42AM - 1970s banner!

I made this banner for 1970s fans who are too young/not born yet to actually recall the 70s (which even includes myself...I know there are more of you out there!!)
Feel free to use this banner for your userinfo page or whatever you want....you don't even have to credit me at all.

Peace, people! Just felt like sharing!

Current mood: cheerful

You know what was seriously goofy in the 70's was the embrodiered jeans pockets. I think it's funny that it's comming back, just look at this contest on Brickfish, design your jean pocket and they're willing to pay $500 to the winner. I think it's kinda goofy:

Hey everyone!
I bought this television and I absolutely love it. I was wondering if any of you knew any background or what year this is?

1:45PM - Amanda Lear, "Alphabet (Prelude In C By J.S. Bach)", 1977

This is my alphabet.
Because time goes on and things are changing in my world, here is a new alphabet for the children of my generation.
Of course, all these words have a meaning for me, but other generations might find a different mood to their world.
My alphabet goes like this:

A stands for Anything,
and B for Bionic, and Bach.
C stands for Claustrophobia,
and D for Dirty Old Man.
E stands for Everyone,
F is Full-Frontal, and Friends.
G, of course, stands for Getting A Divorce.

H now stands for Hijacking
and I for a King-Sized Ego.

J now stands for Jukebox and Junkies,
K is for those who Kiss and Tell
and Video Ladies dance with L.
Naturally, M is for Me,
and N is for Never Again.

O is for that Famous Story, mm.
and P for Pain and Poverty.
Q stands for Quality, which is better than Quantity,
R stands for Rock And Roll Fan.
S is Sexy and Sad.
T drive them Totally Mad,
and U are Everything to Me.

V stands for Little Voodoo,
and W for Where? and When?
X sounds Extremely Mysterious.
Y is a Question I keep Asking
and Z, dear child, for the Zero you will get,
if you don't learn my alphabet.

Some LJ RSS feeds I set up... well, because I could, really. All three of these have 1970s content from the photo host flickr: lots of images, syndicated as large thumbnails. May be a bit dodgy for dialup users, but check out the feed pages and see what you think. There's some good stuff come through these (although there's also a bit of duplication between them).

flickr_aswewere ('70s and '80s)

(Note that you don't need a flickr membership to view the photos, although you do need one (or a Yahoo! membership) to post comments. Most images come in larger versions: click through on each post then click the "all sizes" button to see your options.)

11:44PM - 'Malls Of The Past' (aka 'bored link of the day')

Been scetching all day and me arms are kinda tired, too tired to up the usual BB BS. So I'll just toss off a link to a page about and old favorite of mine, old shopping malls from the 60s-70s. This one is from an area JUST south of the bay area in California.

"Malls Of The Paaaaaaaaast!"

You can go back to sleep now,

7:00PM - A 8 Track documentary on DVD (who would of thunk of it?!)

From the folks who digitaly brought you 'The 70's Dimension' DVD, comes 'So Wrong They're Right'!:

So Wrong They're Right
by Russ Forster

SO WRONG THEY'RE RIGHT chronicles a 10,000 mile journey around the U.S. in search of “trackers” – fanatical collectors of 8-Track tapes, those funky clunky pre-recorded plastic cartridges from the 70s. Russ Forster and Dan Sutherland capture over 20 interviews, brimming with reminiscences, rants, political diatribes, fantasies, fix-it tips, sales pitches, and everything else that defines the skeptical yet inquisitive mind of the 8-Track enthusiast. More than a film about pop-music nostalgia, it serves as a statement of outrage from a population of consumers who are tired of being told what to consume.

"A deadpan tribute to people who refuse to consider the past as passed.” – Wired Magazine

"A forum to celebrate 8-track culture: the candy-colored Panasonic players, the KACHUNK sound of putting the tape into the player, hunting down a treasured copy of the Sex Pistols' ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’…" – Boston Herald

Special Features

This DVD is NTSC, Region 0 (playable worldwide).

As an VHS owner of this set, I can't recommend this set highly enough. A brilliant 90's view of the 70's. Let's see That 70's Show can beat this!!

12:03PM - Happy 4th o' July and anniversary...

I was reminded that this day is then 35th anniversary of 'American Top 40' with Casey Kesem! Thus I'l like to post the following as a tribute to this fine American tradition:

"Okay, I want a (expletive) concerted effort to come out of a record
that isn't a (nasty word) up-tempo record everytime I do a (expletive)
DEATH dedication! It's the last (sacreligious term) time, I want SOMEBODY
to use his (bleepin') brain, to not come out of a (bleeep) record that
is, uh, that, that's up-tempo and I gotta talk about a (censored) dog

Loving you back there, pal!
