40 Years in 40 Days: 1974


Me in 1974

I’ll be 40 in 40 days, so I’m going to look back at the last 40 years. But not for long, because let’s face it, I’m getting old and 1) it can’t be THAT long until my memory goes, 2) do we really need to remember some of the years for very long? I mean, the disco years? 3) I’ve committed to 40 posts in 40 days, let’s not push it. And I’ve decided to include a photo of myself from each year, maybe.

A lot of stuff happened in 1974. I’ll be giving you the Wikipedia version followed by my personal thoughts.


Is it weird that Carrie came out that year and my parents named me Kerry? I think so. I think my obsession with the Watergate Scandal has a lot to do with it happening the year I was born.

For fun, here’s my favorite song of 1974:

And you probably know The Godfather Part II came out in 1974, but here’s one of my favorite clips from The Great Gatsby.
