Blast from the Past Vacation Photos

Blast from the Past Vacation Photos

I wanted to send some sort of electronic post-card from 1981 but of course since there was no Internet that wasn't possible. I did end up getting some snaps taken with a couple of my favourite bands from that time. Simon Le Bon looks so serious in this picture but he was really charming and funny (hence the fact that I couldn't stop smiling although the members of Duran Duran were obviously trying to exude a more sombre attitude here). Andy Taylor was rocking the Andy Warhol look.

You can see that I got into the spirit of Antmusic for my photo with Adam and the Ants. I admit I got kind of attached to the white stripe and walked around with it on for the rest of the day. Also, Adam humoured me by teaching me the Prince Charming dance and didn't even complain when I sang him my favourite line from Car Trouble in an embarrassingly off-key voice: “You don't need anything after an icecream.”

It was a fabulous trip and I highly recommend 1981 as a vacation destination. I wish I had more time to talk about it but I have to get down to editing here. I hope all my fellow Canadians had a most excellent Canada Day!
