    1991. A tribute.

    Was quite a special year, for me at least.

    Still wasn't a teenager, but through older siblings and friends was introduced to new albums such as:


















    Freddy Mercury dying.


    Saddam and the war in Kuwait and Iraq.


    The fall of the soviet union.


    Terry Anderson and Terry Waite released.


    Rodney King repeatedly hitting police batons with his body and head caught on video.


    Birmingham 6 released.


    Terminator 2, Robin Hood prince of thieves, Thelma and Louise, silence of the lambs, Wayne's World, Bohemian Rhapsody re-released.


    Compared to say, 2015.


    1991. A short tribute to a tremendous year.

    25 yrs ago, as it happens.

    Strange, I remember in the 90's my parents talking about the 60's and 70's and them being dismayed that it was 20-25 years ago, and thinking that such a period of time was almost impossible.






    Fok.

    The nineties actually resembled the sixties somewhat...Hard as it may seem to imagine...

    San Francisco was the center of the universe then, innit?...

    Kamloops?

    Is that some sort of rare Pokemon Go?

    See my new thread on it Luig-io...

    Getting to the Centre of the Universe:


    The trip from Kamloops takes about 2 hours and the drive follows beautiful Kamloops Lake, up through the equally scenic Deadman Valley and on to Vidette Lake. Worth combining in a full-day trip would be a visit to an abandoned gold mine, Deadman Falls and an old pioneer abandoned homestead near the top of the Deadman Creek road. Tours should be arranged at the Vidette Lake Gold Mine Resort as there are no signs identifying the Centre of the Universe site, falls or homestead.


    Please contact Vidette Lake Gold Mine Resort to arrange a tour.
    Please note there is a $20 admission charge to view the Centre of the Universe.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Some good music around at the time, it must be said. Saw Nirvana at Reading in 91, halfway down the list (during the daytime). Music papers such as the lamented UK rag "Sounds" were touting the band, so made an effort to load up on uppers and get down the front of the stage. Glad I did as well. Dinosaur Jr were fucking great as well. -Also well down the order.


    91 was also the year I got the job that took me all over the world, and why I reside here. Also the same year I bought my first house and then got divorced.
