MTV: that's probably a throwaway aside and you totally know because of your work, but it poked a memory.

I remember because my cousin's household had cable. MTV started in 1981, but it didn't gain visibility (even amongst cable-subscribers, which required nontrivial $$ compared to recently) till 1984ish. There weren't enough artists making neat videos, either; compare A-Ha's "Take On Me" and Olivia Newton-John's "Twist of Fate," both from 1984. Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna" has to be in here, too; it's from 1983.

I had a hard time caring about The Secret History as a book and a story. Premise: interesting. Execution: maybe I'm too much a Californian or something. Also, I tried SH in my mid-thirties, but Dean's Tam Lin will always be the high-strung Classics major novel for me because I met it a hair before college.
