Vodka Friday: A Special Thank You! - The Daily Duranie

Vodka Friday: A Special Thank You!

Throughout the last ten years of writing and keeping up this blog, we have praised the band, at times, and criticized, at other times. Each and every post, though, has contained love, even if sometimes it is hard to see. We would not keep up this blog if we didn’t love the band and if we weren’t grateful for being their fans. Recently, we have been feeling a little sad at what seemed like a disconnect between them and us, between the band and their fans. Yet, Thursday was the exact opposite. They made the day special for all fans through band members participating in Instagram and YouTube and the video premiere of Five Years. Fans, including us, felt the love and the connection. Yet, Rhonda and I were lucky enough to receive an additional gift in the form of a personalized thank you. Our words of gratitude are inadequate but we attempt to share all of that and more in this week’s Vodka Friday, including a hope that others received the same.

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.


  1. Wow! What a surprise, and if this isn’t the single best validation for you that what you do matters…then nothing is. Congratulations!
