What a pleasant day it has been listening to Melbourne’s Triple M/ EON FM.
The station turns 28 years old today, and they’ve been playing nothing but 80s music. Not a Nickleback or Pink in sight!
Not that all eighties music was good. It seems that with the right amount of time, nostalgia can make up for what was thought of as really bad at the time. Certainly Johnny Diesel and the Injectors sound a lot better to my ears now than they did then. Or, is it just a that compared to some of the trash on the radio now days, the trash from the eighties sounds better?
It can work in reverse as well, leaving you to wonder what you ever saw in a particular song or band.
Also today, the iPhone 3G is available in Oz. Is anyone planning on getting one? I think I may wait for the next generation and the price to come down a bit.
Note to spammers: A subject heading like ‘We have video of you naked ccope’, is just stupid. Even if I was stupid enough to believe that and open the email, the fact that I’m being referred to as ccope is a dead give-away.
I’m also really tired of the ones that tell me how stupid I look and that I have a stupid face. That’s just uncalled for.
