Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

A 1980s Meme for my Penance...

Enbretheliel at Sancta Sanctis has tagged me for an 80's meme, so just as a final indulgence before Lent begins, I shall accede... Beside, this kind of public humiliation is probably good penance!

Favourite 80's TV Shows:
(In no particular order)

1. Dynasty (only because my mum was watching it and forbade me so I sneaked downstairs to see what the big deal was!)
2. Transformers (this is the best thing ever!)
3. He-Man & She-Ra (What awful names!)
4. Full House
5. A-Team (my grandfather watched this with a religious intensity...)
6. Growing Pains
7. McGyver (because every little boy needs a hero!)
8. Knight Rider

Favourite 80's Movies:

1. Stand By Me
2. Big
3. E.T.
4. Splash
5. Return of the Jedi
6. Back to the Future
7. The Name of the Rose
8. Mission

Favourite 80's Music:
(In random order... and more like what I can remember!)

1. Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler
2. True Colors - Cyndi Lauper
3. Karma Chameleon - Culture Club
4. Friends Forever - Michael W. Smith
5. Up Where We Belong - Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes
7. Wake Me Up Before You Go-go - WHAM!
8. Arthur's Theme - Christopher Cross

Well, now that you've gotten your first penance out of the way, it can only get better, right? :P

Thanks for picking up the meme. I hope publicly reliving the memories was as fun as it was embarrassing. (You may even get some fellow Transformers fans coming out of the woodwork!)

They are more than meets the eye, after all.
