Summer is always a quiet time blog-wise--schedules are less, well, scheduled, we're out of the house more and right now I'm focusing on shooting and working on a new magazine and book. Speaking of which, I have a research question: what bits of consumerism ca. 1985 make you feel the most visceral sense of nostalgia (e.g. Rubik's cube, Ouija board, Brady Bunch reruns, E.T., etc.) Would love stories around the memories--one of mine is swimming all day at the local pool, coming home sunburned (in the olden times before copious SPF use) and showering with Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific shampoo (remember that stuff?) followed by Tame conditioner. Afterwards I'd sit on the sunporch with my hot burned skin cooling under the ceiling fan and watch TV as it got dark out. I need to find a bottle of Tame (it's now discontinued) and have myself a madeleine moment (see Involuntary Memory).
