TIL Isaac Asimov died of AIDS.

*T* *I* *L*

Honestly, I'm not living in the dark. Very online, real big nerd, full of scifi knowledge, and plenty of awareness of queer-linked history, such as the AIDS epidemic. I don't blame myself for not knowing this, I blame society for keeping it hidden.

I'm sorry @pelagikat but I am currently trying to stop myself from dancing along (at work too) to a live version of "Action This Day".

Thanks to those who make liberal use of for things they are tooting about a lot to allow us to filter them out if not interested. That's excellent fediverse etiquette.

P.S. Back to the Future is still a timeless masterpiece and Doc Brown still my friggin' icon.

Did anyone ever bother to do a Battlestar Galactica-themed "OK Boomer" meme?

I've blown like a litre of snot out of my nose this morning.

Swears. Stuff that might get me in trouble if the Religious feedom bill ever gets passed 

My eldest child is graduating from my old uni today. His degree will have (hons) after it because he is both smarter and harder working than his father.

Female lead singer. If I remember rightly, she was darker skinned but I had no clue about ethnicity in those days so that probably doesn't help.

There was another song I remember that had a line along the lines of "I want to be a millionairess..."

I'm thinking it would have been released 1985 (I went to Bali end of that year and that's when I would have got my copy) though it could have been a year or two before.

Aussie Brains Trust, I need you...

I've been looking for this band for ages and I know some of you are around my vintage so may have heard of them. They were an Australian band, called "The Tribe". They won some competition (I'm thinking New Faces but I could be wrong) and then released an album. I'm pretty sure the album was called "War Cry" (and if it wasn't, at least one of the songs on it was). I had a Bali-copy of it on cassette back in the day but that's long gone.

I love letting rip in the toilet when someone else is using the bathroom as their personal phone booth. Yeah I hope you are having a job interview you Langer.
