Should we have everyone introduce themselves in their own thread? Or one big introduction thread?

BlitzKid in the house! For all that don't know or don't remember me from the old forums ... I am living in Vienna, Austria so one of the Europeans. I chose the nick because that's one of the name the English press gave to the clubbers going to Blitz Club in London late 70s and early 80s. The dawning of my favourite music genre, the New Romantics.

I Don;t remember my old password or e-mail but I'm here, older fatter and mellower
Don't matter Glenn, This is the new 80sxchange, the old forums are still in place, more or less as an archive. The old forums were not very "mobile friendly" . This one, while still a Work in progress, is intended to be both Mobile and Computer friendly. Welcome aboard!

I'm the former outofplacechild. I've changed my user name to reflect the fact that, because of therapy, medication, and a decision made upon my 30th birthday in 2012 to approach life in a more positive way, I've truly found my place not only online, but in the world. A major note is that I've change politically since my earlier years on the 80sxchange (EDIT: I originally wrote the Rewind in that previous sentence. I confused this with another 80s forum I was a part of in my young and unstable years). Whereas I was once leaned to the right politically, now I'm firmly on the left. That being said, I'm a lot more open-minded now and less quick to anger, so I go by the principle of kindness and treating others with respect, even if I disagree about their views.

I still love the 80s, and that love has only grown since my teens. It's now expressed via the writing I do for a website called Pop Geeks. Here's a link to my page on there with a list of all the articles I've written so far, with plenty more to come: Johnny Caps on Pop Geeks
