Zoom – just one look and then my heart went boom.
I remember when I could hear the opening to the William Tell Overture and feel the adventure. I'm not sure if I just got older, the constant comedic uses of The Lone Ranger theme, or I just can't tolerate the racism inherent in most old Western themed tv and movies, but every time I hear […]
A hair trimmer attached to your vacuum cleaner. What could go wrong? I was sadly disappointed and did not find many Flowbee mishap videos on The YouTubes. Likely, the vacu-trimmer was never that popular in the first place! I had a friend named Bobby Magee who thought the Flowbee was an amazing thing to break […]
When America was truly great we had truly great people on TV. Calvert DeForest was one of the best. Here's another clip:
One of the best children's shows of all time. This is what life SHOULD BE LIKE. Also, I love the themesong, Hey Sandy! by Polaris.
ZZ Top hit a Billboard's "Hot 100" charts at #8 with a song about a Sleeping Bag. Completing their transformation from 70s boogie-woogie blues band to 80s boogie-woogie synth stars. No one rocked the mundane quite like ZZ Top, "she's got legs" after all.
What would you do? Not much if you are my daughter. She offered me the remaining half of hers, not enjoying her few bites. I bought the Heath Bar variety.
Fun remix of Gerry and Silvia Anderson's supermarionation classic Thunderbirds. Thunderbird 4 would have been mine. MINE.

Aztec was pretty impressive in 1982. I played the hell out of this. It was one of the few games my Atari 400/800 using friends were jealous of. The video above shows the game in agonizing load-from-floppy-speed. Also, please remember Sneakers.
This was so much god damn fun.
No one else thought a talking dog teaching us about God's love was weird? I kinda enjoyed these as a kid but always felt something was off…
2013's Kool for the Holidays didn't really serve as the comeback I was hoping for.
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen.
He was a madman with an evil mind.
No office sounds busy without a dot matrix printer ripping in the background. Also: The HALO theme on 8 floppy disk drives.
SPINNING! The very earliest memory I have is riding my Big Wheel over a ledge and into a small, landscaped stream for an epic wipe out! My mom saved me. Thanks, Mom! Big Wheels are totally cool! No wonder I love motorcycles and cars. Here are other things we miss!
