Interview Interaction: Life’s a Beach with Simon
I’m going to start out this blog post with a confession. I think I suck at being able to keep up with fandom and have thought that for quite awhile. Years ago, when I first noticed it, I blamed it on teaching. After all, who can check in with the world while they are in… Continue reading Interview Interaction: Life’s a Beach with Simon
It’s Thursday! I am growing to love this day of the week. While I try to bring a part of myself and my own love of this band into most any post – these are special. This space is where I am just me, and I share whatever I’m feeling that week. This week, I’ve… Continue reading Feelings

The Week in DD History: Sept 5-11, 2021
Hard to believe we are already in September, and that this very week marks two years since the last time many of us saw one another in person at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

It was also the final album for… Continue reading Someone Else Not Me
Is He Having a Seizure?
Recently, the memory of the 2009 show at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa (at the OC Fairgrounds) came up on my calendar. I was there that night with Amanda. If my memory serves correctly, we had met up in Las Vegas and it was one of those times that just worked out brilliantly. I… Continue reading Is He Having a Seizure?
Still In My Heart: Remembering Live Aid & The Power Station
By Jason Lent Another Live Aid approaches and, as always, a few will people have their annual chuckle about Simon LeBon missing a note during Duran Duran’s indifferent performance on the momentous day. For me, Live Aid arrived only four days after my first rock-n-roll concert and my ears were still ringing. As much as… Continue reading Still In My Heart: Remembering Live Aid & The Power Station
Random Fandom: Acknowledgment
For today’s Random Fandom, I’ve got a little story to share. Back when the lockdowns in the US first started – at least here in California on the Central Coast – I started spending more and more time outside during the day. It was just at the point where our weather here was beginning to… Continue reading Random Fandom: Acknowledgment
Poll: How do you listen to Whooosh!?
A few weeks back, I was listening to Whooosh! (If you are unaware, you should run, not walk, directly to Spotify and look up “Whooosh!”, and give it a good listen!) On that particular program, Simon and Katy were explaining that if for some reason you didn’t want to hear them chat in between songs,… Continue reading Poll: How do you listen to Whooosh!?
