The Thornbirds

Rachel Ward - Thornbirds - ABC - 1984

This archive is not important to me, but it reminds me of a time I spent with my best friend. We were drinking and dancing around, and I made the SAME movement into a dance move. It was hilarious because we were both so drunk. Fun moment!

I do not remember any show from the 1980’s really, except the Cosby Show. When I did my research, I read that Rachel Ward is an actress who stared in the show ‘The Thornbirds.’ She played Meggie Cleary, which was a leading role. She was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award because of this show.

Artifact

These Gif are quite amazing, I love all the little details. These photos are actually from a museum( Brighton Digital Festival) . The spray can moving like that is quite creative if you ask me.

100,000 Digitized Art History Materials from the Getty Research Institute

Going through all the beautiful archives I chose 100,000 Digitized Art History Materials from the Getty Resea
http://blogs.getty.edu/iris/100000-digitized-art-history-materials-from-the-getty-research-institute-availble-in-dpla/
The reason I picked this picture from the article because it showed an art piece within another art piece. The picture was taken in 1969 of Barnsdall Park in Los Angeles, California. And it was provided by the Getty Research Institute, I really loved looking at this picture because it brought a lot of emotions forward the black and white, the symbolic enigma of it all> I consider this a masterpiece!

Can Personal Collections Become Public Archives?

I read the “Personal Collections Become Public Archives” and it was quite realistic and something that some people can relate to, and of course that depends on your age or which era you are from. Earlier in the 90’s I personally was one of those persons who would get up early on Saturday mornings to […]

I read the “Personal Collections Become Public Archives” and it was quite realistic and something that some people can relate to, and of course that depends on your age or which era you are from. Earlier in the 90’s I personally was one of those persons who would get up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons since if you missed at that on that date and time then your chances of seeing it again is almost NIL or perhaps in another couple of months.

 

As mentioned in the piece, in the 70’s and in the 80’s Youtube was not available for you to catch up with the cartoons that you missed this morning. Also, with Netflix available people no longer have to stay awake until wee hours in the night or get up early in the mornings to keep up with their shows.

As the writer in “Personal Collections Become Public Archives” said, in the 70’s and 80’s you were lucky if you had a tape collector where you can have hours and hours of your shows recorded if you were so fortunate. From the artifact that was given I thought Battle of the Planets was the most fun and endearing one.

Throwback. I am Getting Old

As I was looking through the sets I stumbled upon one called Tv Series Show Intros. When I opened that link all my childhood memories came flooding back to me. As I scrolled through I saw tv series intros from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. One of the videos that got me super excited was […]

As I was looking through the sets I stumbled upon one called Tv Series Show Intros. When I opened that link all my childhood memories came flooding back to me. As I scrolled through I saw tv series intros from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. One of the videos that got me super excited was the intro to Jem. Whenever it came on Tv I would watch it. It was just one of my favorite shows to watch on Cartoon Network. What I find so interesting is that back in the days cartoons had more details in the features. You can tell that the artists took their time in making their vision come to life. Nowadays anything can be considered a cartoon. I could draw a blob and make it a cartoon show. I appreciated the quality of the cartoon. You can see that they put time and effort into making the cartoons.

Jem  first aired in 1985. The animated series revolves around the lead singer of band named Jem. The rock group is called Jem and the Holograms. Jem also has a secret identity. She is also known as Jerrica, the manager/owner of Starlight Records. Using hologram technology named Synergy  she is able to disguise herself. She is able to use a hologram over herself by the earrings that she wears. The episodes mostly consist of Jerrica trying to protect her double lifestyle, while managing and being apart of a band. What I did not know was that in 2015 they will be making a Jem and the Holograms movie which I am super excited about. Hopeful’y they stick to the animated series story line and not try to add something new.
