    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 ?

    70s Missing Lyrics Quiz

    Quite an interesting site for music trivia from the 1960's to the present. The Cat quiz took me back to "reel" cartoon felines of the past.;)

    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?

    Bone conducting headphones

    You were a "gotta sit in front of the speakers to get the complete music experience" at concerts last century. Now you're "deaf as Peter Townsend" but still like to "experience the music." Rather than upset a bus load of riders with Kirk Thatcher's "I Hate You" with the "volume at 11," "Techmoan" has a non-invasive solution to "EH?" syndrome. Stick one of these "bone conducting headphones" and you could listen to Twisted Sister or Megadeth while everybody else is taking in "Lucia di Lammermore.";)

    3000 video games!

    It's 2019, and it's not safe to wander the streets yet. "Techmoan" has just the answer for people rusticated by weather, circumstance, or the after effects of new year revelers: 3000 vidoe games at your fingertips! (That includes copyrighted games from major video game producers, too.) Set your browser on "seek" and Amazon will deliver a boat load of illegal intellectual property in the form of ROMs. This tiny console that can be hooked up to your state-of-the-art TV complete with the proper 4:3 display ratio in "senior citizen fuzzy" resolution for true nostalgia geeks. Have at it, if you don't have a post-celebration hangover...if the console works.;)

    Another "behind the music/song" video about a swept-under-the-rug problem then...and now.

    Something to sing about on the train, on the way to work.;)

    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    Strolling around YouTube, looking for something else, I ran across someone who has Something Significant To Say, musically.

    Here's a year end song for everyone who "got a year older but none the wiser.";)

    One Of Us

    I was musically strolling around YouTube when I came across a 1980's band playing a Significant Song of The Time. Then I looked at the details...July 18, 2018! (They still Rock!;)

    Charlie Brown Medley

    "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is making the rounds of TV this December, which made me look at covers of "Linus and Lucy." This one, featuring a lively audience and enthusiastic musicians will even move a statue!;)
