This week’s Tumblr collection is Tuesday, November 21: The 80s.

clevermankaI’ve posted a weekly themed collection on my Tumblr nearly every week since October, 2011. Someday I’ll compile a list of them, with links to the dates. That day is not today.

    Annie Lennox was my childhood hero, too. And although I only found out about Nina Hagen as an adult, she, too, is #lifegoals. We almost got to see her a couple of summers ago, but the promoter effed everything up (like, did not book the venue levels of effed) and then got ill so she cancelled. BUT.
