This interview is a little different from what I normally do, but since she’s just as talented as my previous interview subjects. I wanted to speak to someone whose online work I’ve admired for a long time. My newest interview subject, Karen Eng, got her start making videos on YouTube. In the years since she first started singing on YouTube, she has also become a noted Instagram model, and she continues to sing on SingSnap. Like Becky LeBeau, she has great musical talent and doesn’t look her age at all. Like Spice Williams-Crosby, she has a strongly felt set of personal beliefs that guide her work. Karen Eng is her own woman, though, and we discussed her history of online excellence on Tuesday, July 16th. I hope you all enjoy getting to know her.
For Your Eyes Only
Back in my RetroJunk days, many of my articles were list articles, and many of those lists pertained to the pop culture of the 1980s. As a lot of these articles were written in the 00s, they were part of the first wave of 80s nostalgia, probably best exemplified by VH1’s I Love The 80s trilogy. There were three installments, those being 2002’s original I Love The 80s, 2003’s I Love The 80s Strikes Back and 2005’s I Love The 80s 3-D. I was puzzled as to why they called it I Love The 80s when so many of the commentators were snarky and sarcastic about it, lacking the love of the title, but I watched all three installments anyway because of the topics covered. You can preface this article’s title with the words 10 Big Ones because these were big movies not covered on VH1’s I Love The 80s. Surprisingly, there were a lot of movies they never got around to, movies that spring readily to mind when you think of the decade. Whether it was clearance issues or just the fact that each episode was only an hour long, with an episode for each year in all three series making for three hours on that year, there was a lot they could’ve and should’ve covered. Prepare to be surprised.
