Sometimes You Wanna Go Where Nobody Knows Your Name
There is certain negative energy going on in my (down)town. Its really prominent some nights more than others. I don't want to focus on the details, because its useless. While I was out this song keep playing over and over in my head. Why is everyone so unhappy?
Check out this clever film, set out to have that 1960's Technicolor Vibe. Anna Biller is truly divine. She did production, costume design and set design. That beautiful pentagram rug, she hand made!! Yep, she did that rug in a hand-hook style. She did the paintings, the costume and all of "Elaine's" wardrobe. This film with lavish use of color was also, Written, Produced and Directed by Miss Anna Biller! Let's all applaud. ♥ The film is currently making its round thru the film festivals, not sure when it will be available to stream, but i'm keeping my eyes peeled.
Circa 1987. My sister and I would record songs off the radio, try to write down every verse, and practice our singing skills. Remember hitting "Play" & "Record" at the same time??? haahaa! So this song right here, I was so stubborn, I would practice till I pissed my sister off, because she wanted to practice her song(probably Paula Abdul). Its crazy at 7 years old I had High Hopes to sound as flawless as Whitney Houston. Thank god I never sang this at a school talent show.
Lately Ive been on the "Stranger Things" Netflix Binge. So ive been reminiscing on my childhood. Dude! Being a kid in the 80s was so cool. We played outside, skateboarded, roller skated, had club houses, told ghost stories, played Bloody Mary in the Girls Bathroom, ate Otter Pops, and had cool VH1 & MTV Award Shows. I could go on and on.... Yea, so that Netflix Series, Stranger Things, go watch it if your an 80's Babaye! The soundtrack is pretty sick too
Im not trying to say The Bravery sampled any part of Duran Duran's Careless Memories. Or that they sound the same. So please dont get your panties in a bunch. BUT!!! I must say when I heard Careless Memories, the first thing that came to mind was " Hey, this sounds like a Bravery song". I can hear the Shared Essence. Totally! So I figured I'd post to about it.
