    "No Man's Land"

    https://tubitv.com/movies/348453/no_mans_land Submitted for your approval, a tale set in 1993, when Serbia and Bosnia stared at each other over loaded guns. Said to be an antiwar film, and a (sorta) comedy about how a simple tale gets blown up into a major international incident. The UN peacekeeping mission comes under fire, and two of the protagonists trade accusations of "you started this war!"

    This Is Life Here

    A bright, down-to-Earth song about living on the Windward side by "Musician/Poet/Farmer" Paul Izak. This "Old MacDonald" must have a pretty happy farm, eh?

    "Idaten" NHK Taiga drama

    "Fast Runner," NHK's 2019 Taiga drama looks at Japan's trail to the 2020 Olympics. This trailer hints at what TV Japan has been broadcasting for Japanese-language-savvy viewers. (Double whammy for me; TV Japan is a Tier 2 Premium channel, and there won't be a version with English subtitles.) Oh well, NHK's 1983 "Oshin" is playing on KIKU TV, twice a week, so it's no big loss.

    The real PB&J sandwich!

    Have you ever wondered why foreign born folk, (especially Europeans) turn green when Ye Olde Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich is mentioned? Submitted for your approval, The Real Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich consumed by ex-Brit Laurence Brown. Trail Mix!? What does that have to do with a PB&J sandwich? Laurence also thinks a PB&J using Pita bread would be good. (It is!)

    Pioneer PL-88FS (for parts)

    Submitted for your approval, "Techmoan" tries to fix a "basket case/for parts" Pioneer slide-loading direct drive turntable. Warning! Machines were hurt, the shipper was incompetent, and the result is...a Photoshop fantasy. Psst! wanna try to do better and become a YouTube "repair video" star?

    The Cattywampus Zone

    Submitted for your approval, Forrest Serling's below-the-Mason-Dixon-Line tale of the South. Watch out what you wish for, Instant Grits are terrible!;)

    Rhythm Of The Ocean

    Submitted for your approval, a local "blast from the past." In the 1990's, The Hawaiian Style Band was an ever-evolving group of musicians who sang about all things Hawaii, from surf, to food, to Life. This is a relaxed version of an early local hit about the sea around us...

    "Hurricane"

    Submitted for your approval, a tale of a time long ago, when the fate of Europe hung in the balance. A group of Polish pilots get to Britain in 1940, spoiling for a chance for revenge against the Germans. Initially mistrusted and denigrated by RAF, they struggle with the English system of "gallons, feet, and pounds." Not to mention that their aircraft don't have fixed landing gear. But, if you've seen "The Battle of Britain" movie, you know that these "undisciplined, rowdy, cocky" lot "take it to the Germans."

    "Fire"

    Submitted for your approval, a hot, energetic instrumental from Taimane. With Jazz on guitar, Taimane serves up some Spring spice.;)
  10. Submitted for your approval: Moan Family Puppets! Seriously, "Tenchmoan" has dug up a little-known battle in Europe between Philips and Grundig over tape cassettes in the early 1960's. Would the musicians (Grundig, Telefunken, Deutsch Grammophon) prevail in the markerplace over The Dictator (Philips)? In addition, the puppets are back! A YouTube copyright strike has been brought against "the old geezer." How will the sometime YouTube video maker fare against the Mighty YouTube Monster? Tune in for details.;)

    Everything Will Be Alright

    Submitted for your approval, something a lover says when things are FUBAR. Aidan James sings! And he's got other musicians to play along in the Hawaii Theater.;)

    "Sunflower" by Post Malone

    Usually, I find something that "Techmoan" has unearthed some unusual/unheralded/justly forgotten tech. This time, I saw this video by Post Modern Jukebox, and I figured that Music is more interesting than Tech. Submitted for your approval, some Bossa Nova to remind you that Summer awaits...

    Walking On Sunshine 2017

    Winter has been defeated, and Spring is trying to arrive. So here's a blast from the past, courtesy of Philip J. Fry. A spirited performance at Children In Need Rocks the 80s. Here comes the sun...

    Mr. Rogers on Discipline

    Submitted for your approval, almost 30 minutes with "Mr. Rogers," kids, and a gathering of parents. When "discipline" comes up in the family, were you sent to you room? Were you spanked when you "misbehaved"? Mr. Rogers and a several family members talk about "because I say so!" to "I'm disappointed in you" approaches to parenthood and self-discipline.

    Maggie Delaney's story

    Submitted for your approval, a tale of an Indentured Servant in Colonial America. When the phrase "Indentured Servant" comes up, I picture a minor child serving a master in the 17th or 18th century American colonies. This tale is somewhat different, as a family of evicted Irish tenant farmers sign Indenture papers and end up in Philadelphia for sale to the highest bidder. If you have an ancestor who was an Indentured Servant, this tale will open your eyes to the "Pre-Steerage" Irish before the Irish Potato Famine. Warning: The "Onion cutters" are ready for even the most stalwart descendant.
