Happy new year!

  It's hard to believe it's been 3 years since I made this animation, but anyway, happy new year!  (I still have 5 hours to go before the clock strikes 12. :P )

ABBA Reunion doesn't mean singing

I believe I've blogged about this before, but I'm going to do it again because I can. ;) 

After their "break-up" in 1982, ABBA never reunited.  (They did technically in 1986 with the Tivedshambo video, but whatever.)  They never sang together publicly (there were a few private performances here and there, I believe).  And whenever they're asked if they're ever going to reunite, they always say no.

In 2008, ABBA "reunited", but the four of them never stood close to each other as can be seen in the image up there. ^

The closest we got to a "reunion" was at the ABBA the Museum opening with Frida, Benny, and Bjorn.  Agnetha visited a while later.

To ABBA, a reunion means all four ABBA members have to get back together and perform a song on stage while wearing the old stage costumes. That's why they all say to no to a reunion. But to me, a reunion is for all four ABBA members to appear at a public event, stand next to each other, and just be there.  They don't have to sing and they don't have to wear their old costumes.  All four of them just have to be there together.  And if they wanted to sing, they could.

Next year, the Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Sweden again, and I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, the ABBA members could reunite the Becky way.  :)

2015 - A Year In Review

I've noticed that this year I've been pretty lax on this blog.  My tumblr blog has sort of become my primary blog, but I still love this blog so so much.  Anyways, I thought I'd do a year in review sort of post because 2015 is nearly over.  These aren't in any particular order, BTW.

-I ranted a lot about tribute bands.  Like, more than usual.

-My blog and YouTube channel turned 3!

-My Agnetha and Frida dolls finally got their 1979 stage costumes

-I decided to completely redo The Story of ABBA for Young Readers because reasons

-I finally made part 5 to ABBA's Outdoor Adventures

-My collection expanded slightly with ABBA the Scrapbook and the Millennium Collection

-I made this really fascinating post regarding "Nina Pretty Ballerina" and "Dancing Queen"

-I compiled all the footage I could find and made two versions of a 1979 concert recreation using audio from the live album

-My BFF and I made an ABBA tumblr blog for teens called ABBA4Teens which runs on a queue. :P

-I made a few videos but didn't make any new animations. :/

-And best of all, I wrote to Gorel Hanser and I will be getting Bjorn, Benny, and Frida's autograph's sometime early next year!! Eeek!! :D

So that's basically all I did this year.  See what I mean by lax?  Hopefully next year I'll be more active and might be able to find the time to finish all my animations!

Here's to an awesome 2016!

Happy 69th birthday, Benny!

Today's his real 69th birthday! :'D  (Last year I mistyped and said it was his 69th birthday instead of his 68th birthday, lol.) 

Happy birthday, dear Benny!  I hope you're having a fabulous day!!  ^^
