Happy Last Year
By Kelly (Originally posted on December 31, 2016 on Durandipity) Cancer. It is something ugly that I dealt with in 2014. But that was then and this is now. When the big C hit me in January 2014, there was still a Happy New Year Balloon dancing around the house, all cheery and colorful. When… Continue reading Happy Last Year
Duran Duran Sits Firmly at #4
By Heidi What does Duran Duran mean to me? The quick answer to this question would be ‘everything’. Period. But wait a minute. That’s not exactly true. Though Duran Duran has been a constant in my life since 1984, they do not mean everything to me. If I ranked what’s most important to me, Duran… Continue reading Duran Duran Sits Firmly at #4
CD Signing: I “playfully punched” Simon
By Larry This is a story that I never get tired of telling. Back in April of 1995, Duran Duran was having an in-store CD signing event to promote their newly released album, Thank You.

Give It All Up: Sublime
By Heidi Heavens, this is a sublime song. There is something celestial about Give It All Up. Not only does the lyrics point to this with its manyreferences to the universe, but the instruments also refer to space. These I believe we are to understand metaphorically. The beginning sounds like static noise which makes me… Continue reading Give It All Up: Sublime

When John and Renée Spent Christmas in Aarhus, Denmark
By Heidi I have met Duran Duran so many times. At least in my head. The thing is I’m torn between wanting to meet them and being afraid I would be disappointed if I did meet them. Just a few minutes of saying hi and getting an autograph seems like too little and the same… Continue reading When John and Renée Spent Christmas in Aarhus, Denmark
The Vicious Cycle
By Nat Duran Duran just announced three September Hollywood Bowl shows. Some of us thought theband should commemorate their fortieth anniversary with a special event. Several band membersexpressed their thoughts on the matter. Then, Duran released the Anniversary video which feltcelebratory of their lengthy relationship. Perhaps these shows could suffice as a quasi-anniversary show or… Continue reading The Vicious Cycle
Hall of Fame?
By Nat My part of the world is experiencing 15 inches of snowfall today. This storm triggered a “work from home” day and 45 minute intervals of shoveling. After round 1 of shoveling copious amounts of snow, I discovered that Duran has the opportunity to enter the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. My first… Continue reading Hall of Fame?
Invisible Review: Like Medazzaland
By Heidi After weeks of anticipation, Invisible arrived in our midst in times of lock down and not much happening. I was working from home and needed a break – or perhaps I just took a break the moment Invisible was released. At first, I was mildly puzzled thinking ‘What?’, then ‘Hmmm…’ then ‘this reminds… Continue reading Invisible Review: Like Medazzaland
