Hm, I sense a theme here. Waxing nostalgic perhaps. It makes me smile to see the younger set referring back to the 80's for their fashion and style inspirations, but it also makes me feel old and curmudgeonly. Anyhoo, these two lovely little ladies will be available in my Etsy shop this Friday, August 3rd at 2pm central.
I don't really get super excited about the Olympics, but I do like watching the opening ceremonies. I like a little pageantry and pomp as well as anyone, I suppose. I really did enjoy Friday's event; good music, cool visuals--it was fun. I think that's what I came away with anyway, a sense of fun and good-will. Isn't that what this is supposed to be about anyway? I wish it would last longer than a couple of weeks every few years, though. We need more of that feeling in our world. AND I discovered some new music (I'm always excited when that happens). During the filmed sequence of Beckham on the speedboat with the torch--which I thought looked awesome, by the way---I heard something vaguely familiar-sounding playing in the background. I turned to tha interwebs (which reminds me of the horribly frustrating times I had trying to identify bands and songs in the 80's and 90's. Just one way in which my life has improved, haha) and discovered it was someone I'd never heard of: David Holmes. The song is "I Heard Wonders". Here's a video someone made with footage from Bullitt:
