I DUNNO SUMTYMES
I'm using my freedom tonight to go through, one by one - this list of 'One Hit Wonders' from the 1970s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_1970s_one-hit_wonders_in_the_United_States) I am really interested in attempting to achieve an ambiguity in time, that is, to be so immersed in the defining elements of a time period like music, clothes, language - that essentially its like I'm living both in the past and now.
This sounds insane, I know. But it's what I've been thinking about lately - ultimately I want to get up in the morning and sort of be able to choose what period of time I'm in.. 50s, 60s, 40s... Now THAT'S what I call freedom. I mean something has gotta come from my hoarding tendencies - I have clothes from pretty much every decade in the 20th century and need occasion to wear them.
