Echo Beach: On my radio 75-85

As I get near my travel date back to the US, after a long sabbatical in Lisbon, I am enjoying greatly the things I miss most when on the other side: the Ocean and Family. Having my old vinyl collection for this time and listening to it near the Ocean, made me of course go down memory lane. Interesting that some of the things that echo back to mind from the past are not necessarily the things I did most when younger. These echos are what I had in mind when I prepared this long mix. These are sounds that echoed this year back to my mind from the years between 75 and 85. The point was not at all to catalog those years, as I ended up not including artists and tracks that meant a lot to me back then and still do (Miles Davis, Eurythmics, Prince, etc, etc.) But these echoed back, and here they are. I am going to miss this life.

Rede social, baby

Inês Pedrosa em "O livro dos rostos" diz que não entra "numa coisa que nem sequer consegue ter um nome na minha língua". Ficamos a saber que não anda da automóvel ou autocarro (Volkswagen, BMW, Smart, Citroen, Ford, Volvo, Toyota, Honda...), não usa computadores (Apple, Sony, Dell, Microsoft, Word, Photoshop, Internet, Web...), não anda de avião (Boeing, Airbus,...), não usa telemóvel (Nokia, iPhone, android, Motorolla,...), etc, etc.

Minha senhora, Facebook é uma marca como estas todas que refiro; o nome da coisa, do conceito, em Português é rede social. Assim com os automóveis e computadores têm geralmente nome de conceito em Português e marcas nas linguas que os inventaram, também é esta a relação entre rede social e Facebook.

Realmente, é a isto que estão reduzidos os velhos e velhas do restelo: traduzir nomes de marcas. Vá lá então usar o seu Maçã na Interrede, e na Teia de Mundo Inteiro, talvez guiando o seu Carro do Povo...

Já agora, para mim o Facebook é muito útil para manter o contacto com a família e amigos quando estamos do outro lado do Atlântico.
