Girl photographed in a neon airbrush art-T-shirt shop at the Berkshire mall, 1989⚡️ I just realized that I never got around to posting this pic, this was last year in July! Hopefully will be able to go back soon 🙌🏻 if I do I’m definitely buying something from this store, I’m currently obsessed with airbrush art especially since I got that Camaro shirt made last August ✨
When @lizmoughon stopped by the other day with a bag of cameras for us to look through, she didn't expect a Le Clic to emerge from the depths of the assortment. To be fair, neither did we. ⠀
The Le Clic is an interesting footnote in the annals of film photography. Sold by the Keystone Camera Corp, it was introduced to the world in 1986 as the Swatch of the camera world. In other words, it was meant to be a fashion accessory, tucked into the pocket of your Jordache jeans or clipped stylishly to your belt. We really cannot describe this any better than this excerpt from the Chicago Tribune dated May 14, 1986.⠀
"At a soiree befitting the introduction of a swanky new car or a status-y new chocolate, Keystone Camera Corp. last week introduced a nifty little (3 by 4 1/2 by 1 inch), lightweight (6 ounce) camera that`s just too much fun to leave at home. The camera (which comes in a variety of pastels and later will appear in patterns such as paisleys and zebra stripes) can be worn around the neck or attached to a belt, or it can simply hang around in a coordinated pouch.⠀
Keystone invited some 500 retailers, fashion press and designers (they all came and brought friends) to a party in Astor Hall at the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue to celebrate the launching of the disc camera.⠀
Upon arrival, each guest was presented with a Le Clic. After the usual chitchat and the unusual refreshments (champagne and caviar), 20 waiters dramatically came down the glorious, castle-like staircase of the historic library, each carrying silver trays. Instead of the expected hors d`oeuvres, the trays held film discs. Guests, quite naturally, grabbed the film and started shooting away."⠀
For that day at least, it seems like the Le Clic and Kodak Disc film sat upon a golden throne in the fashion world. That lofty perch wouldn't last too long but thankfully we have the memories.⠀
Whenever we feature a Disc camera, we always like reminding folks that we can not only develop Disc film, but make true optical, analog prints from it as well! Just sayin' in case you have an old Disc or two lying around.

I didn’t move my body for so long. No exercise. No PT. No running. The more time that passed the harder it felt to get back into it. I had this huge mental block that manifested itself as fear, and the fear stopped me from taking that first step. But something clicked and I did it. I booked a class so I was committed. Thought I’d try something I hadn’t done before. I felt so uncomfortable stood looking at myself in studio mirrors - still do a couple of weeks in - but I told myself I had every right to be there. I am worthy. Worthy at this size just as much as at my slimmest. And I loved it. I loved moving my body, feeling my heart pounding in my chest, working up a sweat. I loved the music. But what I love most of all - EXERCISE MAKES ME HAPPY :) #piloxing#barre#aerobics#1980s#exercise#moveyourbody#healthyliving#goals#happiness#selflove#bekindtoyourself
For Valentines Day last week, we decided to stay in and have a Patrick Swayze double feature. I would pick a film and so would Lianna. I knew she was going to pick Dirty Dancing (I’ll post it on Sunday), so the logical choice would be to pick Ghost. That would give us a doubleheader of true romance, but I didn’t pick Ghost. I picked a #patrickswayze film she’d never seen... Road House. Straight out of #1989 , #roadhouse is a sublimely surreal action movie that is near and dear to me. Swayze plays Dalton, the best cooler in the business, who is hired to work security at the rowdy Double Deuce, “the kind of place where they sweep up the eyeballs after closing.” He is the epitome of badass and he gets to work cleaning up the place. His car is constantly vandalized and he has several injuries subjected to him during the film. One forces him to go to the hospital, where he meets his love interest, Doc, and gives her one of my all time favorite lines, “pain don’t hurt.” The villain of the movie is Brad Wesley ( #bengazzara ) and he follows that grand #1980s tradition of action movies where the rich bad guy doesn’t really need to act as crazy as he does. You wonder how they ever made the money to begin with. There’s not much of a solid reason, but he terrorizes the businesses in town. He runs afoul of Dalton when he refuses to back down. Dalton has to call in his old buddy Wade Garrett ( #samelliott ), looking slick and grizzled. It’s a bizarre and nonsensical blast of a great time. You know what you’re in for the moment goons show up in a freaking monster truck. It’s a truly marvelous film to watch on Valentines Day. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
