Total randomness brings back the 20th century in this last month of the year. I’ve been reminded of former muses too much lately! And not only because I meant to put them in Da Strip…
First a Google Alert on Muse K showed the grown-up daughter of a former muse who for some reason uses her mother’s name… but whatever! 😉
There’s the immortal boys of 1964 who haven’t changed much – although one I have sorta lost track of, since the last movie I saw is You, me and Dupree (2006), but I recently rewatched Beautiful Girls (1996) for some inspiration.
The other I follow on Facebook, got his solo album and I know they’re both as immortal and unchangeable as Muse K! 😉
And then trying to remind myself what the 1980s muses looked like, I stumbled upon the man from whom I stole my pen name… boy, he still looks good! Pity that the second best voice of the 80s (after Morten Harkett of A-ha) has moved on to other things.
Can you believe he was the inspiration for Gaurishankar, whom Daniele calls… with his real name, even though I wrote Technological Angel years after he was famous as the singer of a pop band (and in fact Gaurishankar looks like the guy in the video of Home is where the heart is, LOL)?
Anyhow, he’s a composer and filmmaker and he even won a BAFTA, so I’ll have to get meself a DVD or two in January! 😉
And speaking of movies and the 1980s… I was 15 when The Empire Strikes Back came out, and I saw it in theaters before Star Wars (that came back into theaters after the second movie came out). I love the original trilogy.
Will I see the sequels? No more than I watched the 4th Indiana Jones. Nope. Sorry. I’d rather remember Han Solo and Indiana Jones in their thirties… 😉 Have a great weekend!
