BULLETIN: I Missed the 80s

Every once in awhile, I have these amazing Moments of Awareness.

This is to be expected. After all, I am a Feldenkrais teacher. Awareness is our Bidness.

So. I have become aware, in a flash of insight, that I was, apparently, in a coma during the 1980's.

There are isolated strands of melody, fleeting images, dreamlike, that waft through my consciousness from time to time. But I always say, "Naaaaahhhh. Couldn't have been."

Two of my 30-something-ish friends have recently posted these delightful mashups-- well worth watching.


I've been in denial all these years. My daughter was born in 1983, and my son in 1988. I've suspected this accounts for the fact that I remember the shock, sometime around 1995, when I saw a movie that DIDN'T have animated characters in it. I f@$%ing missed the 80's. Yes. I blame my children. Music, movies, culture -- maybe I even missed -- history. YIKES.

So, in the name of learning, and that it's never too late -- what did I miss?

Please include your links and synopses in the comments.
