From retro themed poetry to moments scrolling down memory lane, I truly love what I do as a writer. When I started http://www.vintageretroman.com, I began a journey of self realization and creativity through writing. I am aware that I do not think or operate like many people. I enjoy everything from Christian Hip-Hop to Pac-Man. I like to wear masks and costumes. I am entertained by everything from Nascar to Marching Bands. Most importantly I love the vintage and retro cultures of the past.
I never would have thought that 100 people would actually see my vision. For many years I did not showcase my writing ability because I simply thought that it was not good enough. I purposefully try to surround myself with other bloggers who are much better than me. It keeps me humble, and I learn so much from them. As I continue on my mission to provide the best content possible for the masses, I want to take a quick moment to hit the pause button and say thank you.
To my 100 followers on my blog, and almost 1000 followers on Instagram, I genuinely appreciate your support. I have been through so many things this year that were negative, but my blogging community has been a true blessing in my life. When I lost my father in March, you have been there. When I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago, you encouraged me. Thank you for being patient with me. Thank you for understanding me. I may not be the best at many talents, but rest assure with me you will always get sincerity and authenticity. It is how I live my life and how I will continue on.
Thank you for every like, every kind word, and every thought and prayer. You are appreciated. Please remember, my only goal is to make you feel like a kid again. Operate with passion. Structure your heart with love for others. Remember not to take life too seriously. Lastly, never let life dictate how far you can make it! On to 200 followers! 🙂
Ok vintage retro fans out there, time for another retroquiz! Let’s test your soul music knowledge and see if you can name that singer/group!
They convinced the whole world that “ain’t no woman like the one they’ve got!”
They pose the question, “Could it be we’re falling in love, with you baby?”
This soul singer compared his woman to a “starship”, which happened to be the name of one of his biggest hit singles.
If you are looking for “sunshine on a cloudy day” this group feels this about their girl.
This soul singer stated that “Love and Happiness” will make you do wrong or do right.
This soulful duo asked “Sara” to smile.
This particular group asked the question “Have you seen her?”
According to this group, “La la la means, I love you.”
In the 1970’s, this legendary singer made us all question “What’s going on?”
According to this singer’s perspective, things are finally going his way “For once in his life.”
This group was so excited about their ladies, they couldn’t help but sing “Betcha by golly wow! You’re the one that we’ve been waiting for, forever!”
“What you won’t do for love?” That is the thought provoking question that this soul singer probed his audience with.
She expressed her secret crush via song by stating, “If you only knew, how much i do, do love you.”
She stated that she only wanted one thing from her significant other, which is “RESPECT”
This soul singer did not feel respected in his home. Therefore he made the classic hit, “If you think you’re lonely now” to express that men feel used sometimes as well.
