Around this time every year, I celebrate my Duranie anniversary. In 1984, around April, I fell in love with the song and the video for the Reflex. Since then, I use the song’s release as the official date for the beginning of my fandom. That’s right. It means that I can now say that I’ve been a fan, a Duranie since 1984, for 34 years. Ouch. That makes me feel old. Today, then, as part of my celebration, I am going to post songs, videos, pictures or whatever that I love connected to this crazy fandom of mine.
Let’s start with my favorite song from a tour I adored:
The Paper Gods Tour, on the other hand, was simply amazing for so many reasons. Here are a few highlights:
Speaking of New Moon on Monday, let’s include a couple of my favorite videos!
I always enjoy screaming for these two!
And these two!
Of course, my fandom has brought amazing times. Sometimes, when I am really lucky, the moments are both amazing and amusing.
The best part of fandom, though, is friendship.
I suppose, as I end this little mini-celebration, it would be logical to acknowledge the video that solidified my fan status.
34 years and counting!
