  1. Today
  2. I was on YouTube and someone answered a post I'd made about PDQ Bach and Peter Schikele with a suggestion about a Country band that has outstanding players who "sound awful." I'll get back to that post and that band, but for some reason it reminded me of a most bizarre-looking Finnish Rock band, Leningrad Cowboys. If you like Vodka, Sauna, and plowing, this video's for you.;) Lester "Roadhog" Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys! "Alive at the Johnny Mack Brown High School" (1974)
  3. Yesterday
  4. Father's Day is coming up. and "Techmoan" has a doozy of a "Fix-It Felix" piece of tech that would puzzle most "all-things-audio" experts. Submitted for your befuddlement is a background music player for your local Piggly Wiggly or Wal-Mart of the 1970's. As a business owner, you could regale your customers with your taste in Muzak, sprinkle the day with limited time sales announcements, and drive your staff to distraction. But the behemoth "needs a few repairs." Will Matt be able to play the one 1/4 inch tape cartridge he has? Press "Play" to find out...
  5. "Techmoan" and "VWestlife" don't have an "interesting electronic gadget" video this Friday, that I could see. So, let's see what Irish people on the TRY channel think of "American State Candy." These Emerald Isle folks have been subjected to various foods from across the world including Durian fruit. What will they think of candy that's identified with certain U.S. states? Rip open the wrapper, the Irish are in the house!
  6. Some video games have a dynamite soundtrack. Is Unknown Worlds' soundtrack for "Subnautica Below Zero," without the growls, screams, and "things that go bump underwater" relaxing? Take the plunge, the undersea vistas of Planet 4546B await...
  7. And now for something completely different. "Younger than Springtime" YouTube video makers have been viewing/reacting to Classic movies from "Casablanca" (It's Black-and-White!) to "Blazing Saddles." To get the weekend off to a rollicking start, "India" takes on "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"...and survives! ("Alien" and "Aliens" are also popular reactor's movies, as well.;)
  8. Gab Smolders puts on her Nancy Drew detective's cap in this Japanese-language-with-subtitles 1988 game that's been modernized for 2021. Can you figure out what's going on? Who's doing what to whom? (Just the thing to come down from the drama/terror of "Subnautica Below Zero.";)
  9. Last week
  10. Uncle Joe was surely one of the good guys. Always funny and friendly to everyone. (Thank you to Edna for letting me know about UJ's passing). You know, this Topic is like an actual wake. You don't see family and friends for years until somebody dies...then you realize you miss them all. I do miss you guys.

  12. Earlier
  13. Summer is just over the horizon and you're itching to play your Classic "Beach Music" in LP form at the next "unmasking on the shore." Using Amazon Japan, "Techmoan" bought a retro version of the 1980's Columbia Japan GP-3 AC/DC portable record player. So, can this copy of a kid's/teen's record player make The Beach Boys come alive around the "Jaws' campfire" by the shore? Press "Play" to find out...
  14. Can you see who's calling you on the telephone? No big deal with today's SmartPhones? How about in the 1980's? Thanks to a Netherlands fan, "Techmoan" has two, TWO Sony video phones of the 1980's to show. Set the Wayback machine to "Space: 1999" and we'll see how this new-in-box, "Jetsons-era" tech works...
  15. The Wayback Machine broke down near Bethel, New York, and this was song was playing on 1969 radio.
  16. How well do you remember the events of your life? This short film has been compared to "Black Mirror," which I've never seen. But Rod Serling would recognize this tale.
  17. The Outlaws radio broadcast KMET @ Los Angeles Record Plant 11/22/76 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZZWZlajbyo
  18. And now for something (sorta) completely different. "Subnautica: Below Zero" was officially launched this past week, so YouTube has numerous gamers "playing with Robin." However, in search of humor and "the fun unhipness of Neebs Gaming," here we go again. Let's do a crash landing on Planet 4546B that would make Roger Wilco proud. Summer is approaching, so let's get cool with Appsro... "Jacksepticeye" shows how much he's forgotten about "Below Zero"
  19. How about the ultimate "all-in-one" audio package? "Techmoan" searched Japanese audio auction sites for not-found-in-the-UK MiniDisc/Cassette/FM Radio compact systems. He had three very different experiences with his imports, as you can tell from the title. How did this MiniDisc-loving electronics Boffin fare? Play the video for an imported adventure...
  20. Last Sunday, Turner Classic Movies' "TCM Imports" broadcast "Run, Lola, Run" as the first of two foreign movies. (The second film was "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner." which I'd seen a while ago.) Since EVERYBODY has seen "Lola Rennt," here's a very different German film, "Goodbye, Lenin!" I haven't seen this film either, and I found one with English subtitles, to boot! So, return with us to those Cold War days, when The German Democratic Republic was a confident, forward looking state, kept in "good socialist standing" by the STASI...
  21. Joe Perry of Aerosmith admitted he felt jealous when Guns N’ Roses got huge. I think he’s the only one being honest here. It’s sad how all these great artists are so threatened by and ungenerous about each other. I guess the massively talented are just as human and fragile as the rest of us…The only genuinely confident people I’ve known are kind people.
  22. I swore i heard a song on the radio a few months ago in the middle of the night when i was driving but i can't find it anywhere. The only part i remember clearly is it saying I'm sorry i didn't know me then like i do now. It sounded like a song about trying to leave after pretending to be happy for so long. It seemed to be about someone who lived their life doing what everyone else wanted them to do even when they knew it wasn't what they needed. Does anyone know what song it could be?

  24. Candle in the Wind - Elton John
  25. So you don't know where in the world Kolkata is? Fear not, "Techmoan" has found a "world turning" package to brighten the day of Geography-challenged folks everywhere. You DO have a SmartPhone, right? (I don't.) A trip to Amazon Japan will net you a lightly textured plastic world globe and a multi-purpose App for your Apple phoe or iPad. A virtual Political map overlay with national flags will make if possible to distinguish Albania from Zaire. Is the eight-year-old child in you mad about Dinosaurs? There's an overlay for that. Is this package worth $40 US? Can you use the App on another globe
  26. On October 19, 1987, Rick Sebak interviewed Fred Rogers in his "composer's apartment," not far from the WQED studios where "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" was produced. There are a number of interesting tidbits of information about Fred Rogers' "life before television" that shaped how he interacted with people. To quote a TV ad, "It's time well spent." Dr. Todd Grande looks at the mental health and personality of Fred Rogers
  27. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov0ulwyv_jg Last Sunday, Turner Classic Movies showed the movies of Satyajit Ray on what would have been his 100th birthday. "Apur Sansar" is the third and final "Apu" movie that began with "Panthar Panchali" in 1955. Apu is now a young man who has to quit University studies due to a lack of money. A college friend invites him to a relative's wedding, and Apu's life changes suddenly. It's a great end to the "Apu Trilogy" and reminds me of Stayajit Ray's last movie, "The Stranger" (1991).
