    Reversed channel RCA plugs

    "Techmoan" hasn't seen fit to post a video about audio/video foibles, so here's his sometime-U.S.A collaborator. Here is a public service announcement from "VWestlife" on goofy/strange/wrong RCA cords. I'm not sure if I have a problem of this kind, but Murphy's Law applies everywhere.;)

    I was looking at the movie listings on Spectrum when I spotted "The Ring 2" as something to see besides "Dunkirk." A quick Google! search for the movie "covering the same ground as "The Ring," made me realize that I hadn't seen the original. A YouTube search for "Ringu" led me to this movie, which was new to me. As usual, Beware of strange links or unlabeled VHS cassettes, something might visit you when you least expect it and...

    Bone Fone

    It's 1980, and your at-home stereo headphones won't stay in place as you go about Jogging, walking the dog, or mowing the lawn. What to do? There's an answer to this problem, the wonderful "Bone Fone." which channels radio through your body instead of speakers. "Techmoan" takes a look at the "bone conduction" AM/FM radio appliance for the young and mobile. Can this over-the-shoulder-and-around-the-neck audio device live up to the brochure's many claims ?

    Best Workout Songs

    And 15 years later, we finally have a category: https://www.songfacts.com/category/popular-workout-songs
  15. This commercial is actually old and was released on May 12, 2017. The URL is: www.TENAsamples.com. The song starts with “Dream by the...” or “Dream from a...” or something like this? I can’t really understand the exact words in the song in this commercial because the riff is so short between the time the song starts and the time the Narrator begins to speak. This commmercial begins with this song and shows a man and a woman getting on a motorcycle before they ride off. I really like the singer’s voice and the mood of the song. If anyone happens to know, I realize this may be a long-shot, the songwriter, name of the song and/or the name of the album, please reply. I would really appreciate your response!!!!! Thanks!

    The First Grader

    In 2003, 84 year-old farmer, Kimane Maruge, set out to enroll in school to learn to read. He faced an uphill battle with officialdom, resisting efforts to place him with less-than-studious adults. This film has Turkish subtitles, but this is the largest, clearest, non-fee version on YouTube. So, why does Kimane need to read?

  19. I felt that I really needed to post on this as my mum recently told me she wanted to have 'I did it my way " when she passed; it is a beautiful song and it does really reflect well on mu mum as she can be known to be... shall we say " Quiet Stubborn " lol. We lost my dad quite suddenly in July 2018 after a four month battle with cancer 😪 We were and still are shattered, my dad chose to have Macho Man by the Village people as he was taken from the church, the whole place was laughing hysterically; that was my dad though; always wanted to make the best of a bad situation, and as it was my mum and his second marriage, it was a fairly casual occasion and they had Macho Man as their wedding song lol, very romantic. LOL I miss you Daddy

    Thanks Ange. I'm like an Australian Abraham Lincoln - the father of his country. Nice pic of you and your Grandson. Hi to a lot of 'old' friends whom I see have posted recently, Dear Edna, Laurie, Carole, Tim, Ken..... special congratulations to you. I also saw EYEgor drop in briefly. Had to get my DVD of Young Frankenstein and watch it again. Hilarious. Pity that most of the actors in it are deceased.

    Old posts

    This place was *way* ahead of it's time. Songfacts was a kind of facebook before facebook was facebook, but for music freaks. Then a few things happened. We had a server change and the format of our beloved Songfacts boards changed. They weren't like what you see here. Then facebook came along, and with it a songfacts facebook thing. I think the posts became fewer and farther in between. I still come here, I don't always "officially" sign in, but I am usually here once a day. There was a tight vibe for quite some time. A tribal vibe, kind of a family type deal.
