80s ☆ High Gear ☆


Quechua Book II is still in the works and it’s coming along somewhat nicely. It’s a beast of a project ‘cause there’s a WHOLE LOTTA translating and remixing to be done.

Quechua Book II is a wee bit more complicated than Book I ‘cause this time there’s phrases and sentences involved. Being equipped with loads of Perseverance + Imagination is very important when taking on a massive project involving various languages, and also, striving to make it an enjoyable experience for the reader.

The General Lee & K.I.T.T.

And now, for our feature presentation.

Rewind back to the early 80s, when I was a T.V. maniac, these two shows + cars: K.I.T.T (Knight Rider) & The General Lee (The Dukes of Hazzard) captivated and mesmerized me like no other 80s cartoon could. 

Both shows offered memorable, funny and great characters as well as music that has never stopped playing in my subconscious. My love for the Synth 🎹 and that infectious 🎸 Twang can be traced back to these two amazingly entertaining T.V. shows.

Oh yes, I still randomly watch both shows and they’re charming and immensely enjoyable.
