CrazyKelvin's Weekly Thought for May 1 to May 7, 2002

I have noticed that so many items of the 80's are back in style today in 2002. About 20 years later!! Breakdancing is back in the clubs and breakdancing fashions are back in stores. Puma has even released all the same clothing lines that they were selling before in the 80s. ALF and Mr. T, both HUGE television icons of the 80s, are presently doing 1-800-COLLECT commercials. The TV Networks are also paying attention to this retro fad... FOX's successful "That 70's Show" has followed up with "That 80's Show". And yes.... even one of the biggest pop culture icons of the 80's was pro wrestling with Hulk Hogan. He's actually back wrestling today AND the current Champion! Music also has resurfaced with 80's inspirations. The whole electronic dance music craze has exploded into a world wide phenomenon. Many of the same beats from Micheal Jackson, Duran Duran and David Bowie are remixed into hypnotic trancendual beats.

Is that the main course of my thought for this week? Nope... but its something that I'm thinking about. Right now I'm living my FIRST WEEK in Orlando, Florida. I have no clue what to expect and I don't know what my future has in store for me. Last year, my new life started in Miami. I am already looking back when I moved into my place on the water of Biscayne Bay. My now famous studio apartment in downtown Miami. *sigh* I just left the place yesterday and now I'm here in Orlando. What a change. I don't know how long I'll be here... CrazyKelvin is always relocating.

Has anyone received that crazy message from Hotmail lately? Get this: If you don't access your hotmail account within 30 days, they will delete all your saved e-mails and folders...UNLESS you pay them $29.95/year. Can you believe this?!?!? How much MORE money does Microsoft want?? I remember when Hotmail was called - "The World's FREE Web Based E-mail". Now.. I guess that's all gone. I have been a Hotmail member since 1997. Back actually around the time when Microsoft didn't take over Hotmail yet. Geeez..... Bill Gates must need a new downpayment on an island in the Pacific to ask people to shell out $30/yr just to keep their email accounts safe from deletion.

All the best,
