…Songs and Life

Some songs and artists mark us for life. They become engraved into who we are. Into our soul. This artist brings me quite a few memories. Just to list a few moments that included his music…

1. Mending a broken heart and becoming whole again (his music was around while going through the process)
2. Driving the stunning Lisbon bridge, windows wide open, listening to Heavier Things, following my British Council exam
3. Finishing my degree and getting two different job offers before leaving school (confidence sky high)
4. Experience the adventure of leaving my home country and starting all over
5. Finding love again

He needs no introduction…

His trio drummer (Steve Jordan) gets me every single time…

Gaming in the 80’s…

Celebrating it in German… Marteria (Endboss)

Ich spring von Level zu Level zu Level
Spring von Level zu Level zu Level
Spring von Level zu Level zu Level zu Level
Bis der Endboss kommt

Where are they now…?

Some of us born in the beginning of the eighties, end of the seventies, will likely remember some of the amazing TV cartoons that captured the imagination of so many. I clearly remember getting up on Saturday mornings to turn the big boxy TV and watch cartoons with my brother. We had a great collection…

From the fantastic He-Man (around 1988 it was also the first movie I watched in a cinema theater)… he-man …to the amazing Roger Rabbit and wife Jessica Rabbit… Roger Roger 2 Jessica Rabbit …the handy Inspector Gadget Gadget …to the Thundercats (I absolutey loved this series)… Thundercats …and I could never forget the initial Ninja Turtles and their love for Pizza. Ninja Turtles So it was an interesting experience to come across this video which depicts all my childhood heroes enjoying retirement… It’s fair enough to say that some are better off than others.

“Time is linear, memory is a stranger…”

Ohh, but I do…

I really enjoy leaving home with the camera. Even if for a simple stroll around the city.
The unexpected does tend to take place. A couple of shots came out that I’ll be adding to my deFocuseD series.
