I'm not one to go around shouting that I've had epiphanies.
But if an epiphany is,
as Wikipedia says,
finding the last piece of the puzzle
and now seeing the whole picture,
I had one this morning.
but I have come to appreciate
I've always been fond of people born in the 80s,
but aside from the first season of Saved by the Bell,
an occasional Molly Ringwald movie,
and a strange fascination with Pee-Wee's Playhouse

Enter "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper,
and the tide begins to turn.
Not only is this a great song
(well-covered by the impregnable Phil Collins as well),
the video is
And I realized that I have just the palate
for awe-inspiringly strange.
There it is.
The puzzle is complete.
I love the 80s.
You've got to admire the audacity with which they did things in the 80s.
