The album The Dream of the Blue Turtles by Sting was released 30 years ago today. The tracks are slower and more like jazz than what Sting did with The Police. But it is still a great album with lots of good tracks. The video above is a great song you probably remember. But what a crappy video!
Using this computer, I have written lots of programs using Basic and machine code. You can do a lot using 48k of memory. (This is more than the Commodore-64 which had only 40k of usable memory.) I have also made some music using the MIDI interface that was also donated. Some other gadgets I donated was a light-pen, two joysticks and lots of games.
The ZX Spectrum was a very useful computer. Now it has found a new home. You can visit it at the Internet Museum.
I can still play may old favorite games using emulators. There are web-based emulators and emulators for lots of operating systems. There are also emulators for your smartphone running on Android. We must perform a Quirkafleeg!
Today it is 30 years since the release of the album Welcome to the Pleasuredome by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. In my opinion this is one of the best albums (maybe the best) in the 80’s with lots of hits and a lot of other good tracks. Some of the tracks was covers, but FGTH’s versions was really good.
We are now back from our trip to London. More images can be found at the berka.se blog.
