  1. Today
  2. And now for something completely different (again). Have the current crop of Horror/Survival games got you wound up like a Timex wristwatch? Fear not, Xenon's intrepid Space Janitor, Roger Wilco, is back to tickle your funnybone. After his 15 minutes of fame have ended, Roger is back on the job...until he is whisked away by Pug Uglies! Who. what, why, WTF goes through our hero's mind as he is brought before a "Bond-worthy Villian." What will the mop jockey do?
  3. Yesterday
  4. The chaos pf Christmas/Holiday shopping is enough to drive one crazy, especially looking for parking or navigating The Mall. Take off those soggy shoes, set your packages down, pour yourself something to take the edge off, and play this "Meet Me In St. Louis" movie classic song. See you in 2020.;)
  5. It's that time of year again, Christmas parties, family gatherings, after work stops at the old watering hole, and PSA. Cash in your designated driver ticket, and call a cab if you can't remember where you parked your car. Save travels.;) On the other hand it doesn't have to be that way...
  6. Submitted for your approval, a movie about car trouble, scuzzy locals, and an unlikely "good Samaritan." "Dead tree" map reading skills aren't needed in these GPS navigation system days, are they? You are so wrong, kids, especially in the backwoods. Are you ready for this, "Sarah Connor"?
  7. Submitted for your approval, a survival tale in the deep woods on Earth. Where's the rest of the airplane? Where's my son? Where am I? It's "Daniel Boone" time, where you need to assess the situation, gather materials, find out if the natives (if any) are friendly or not. Who was that "red man" who took my son?
  8. Submitted for your approval, a Sony Compact Cassette player-recorder that ISN'T a Walkman! Decrepit, er, Classic Tech seeker "Techmoan' found a long piece of "needs repair/for parts" Sony portable cassette tape machine that also "does shortwave radio." As expected, a "disintegrated into goo" rubber belt needs to be replaced and the circuitous path that drive wheel and guides lie upon require hard work. Did you know that LED lamps interfere with radio reception? Oh well, two steps forward, one step back. Big news! The "Moan Family puppets" are back, and "tech talker Zack" makes his debut, along with the Higgs-Boson particle!
  9. Last week
  10. Once upon a time, a family of four lived near a lake. The parents and their sick daughter set out for town...and never returned. The sole survivor, Nicholas, was found at home alone, later by people of the small fishing village. Living conditions were hard, but the village decided upon a unique living arrangement for the orphaned boy. Thus begins a tale of the season, a bit early, but quite interesting.
  11. Earlier
  12. Nice! Thanks Carl...I knew I recognized the voice..just couldn't think of it at the time...
  13. I dig the funky stuff from the late '60s - "Cloud Nine," "Ball of Confusion" era.
  14. We interviewed him not too long ago! Very interesting guy: https://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/jesse-colin-young-of-the-youngbloods
  15. Thanks Edna! I will check it out when I get a chance! Did a youtube search and found it!
  16. Thanks Edna! I will check it out when I get a chance!
  17. Hey Temps fans..as this Legendary group heads towards it's[60th]year which grouping do you dig? do you go back to the early group with Al Bryant[1961--63]or the classic period of David Ruffin[1964-68]maybe it's the psychedelic 70's with Dennis Edwards or the smooth [80's]group of Richard Street,well which ever you like you can't go wrong with the-Emperors Of Soul!
  18. Submitted for your approval, a complete Spaghetti Western for dinner. Most of the time, even "premium" cable TV networks show a "fullscreen" version of this "wider than the Wild West" movie. That very broad scene where "Nobody" is "Noodling/Bashing" fish is one I've never seen. Excuse me, I've just got to see what happens when "Jack Beauregard" faces down "The Wild Bunch" alone...
  19. Submitted for your approval, an early 21st century TV series about time/space anomalies that allow ancient animals to run amok and gobble up unsuspecting moderns. First up, a fan video celebrating young animals frolicking through the modern world to "The Hamster Dance.'";) Then, it's "reduced/picture-in-picture time for this "midnight SF channel" show. The SF channel stopped broadcasting the series, so I never did figure out what was behind the "spacial anomalies" that allowed these post-"Walking With Dinosaurs" to run rampant across the UK. Get your "Jurassic Park" Tranquilizer gun out, we're gonna hunt, er, Run For Your Lives! Top Ten "Primeval" Creatures.
  20. What was I playing instead of "Leisure Suit Larry"? I was stumbling across space and time as janitor "Roger Wilco" in "Space Quest 1," that's what. (With Roger's dodgy footwork, escaping from danger was an adventure in itself!) What's different about this version? This player had/has a Roland MT32 sound card, which fully realized the soundtrack. (A Sound Blaster sound card was better than the PC speaker...just.) So, put away your mop, danger's around the corner!
  21. "The Fiddle Man," a song written for composer Sam L'ia
  22. Submitted for your approval, a 40th anniversary Sony Walkman without headphones and a never-ending "Cassette Tape" display for 400 English Pounds Sterling! (Say what!?) "Techmoan" imported this thing from Japan and got an Android without either cellphone nor camera. (WTF!?) Just play the video, Mr. Phelps, and imagine what the Impossible Missions Force at Sony has to do to sell this product...
  23. Ricky Nelson Remembered Ricky Nelson rose up out of his family's prominent TV arrangement, pret wear online The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet , to build up himself as a significant shake craftsman of the 50s and 60s.
  24. And now for something completely different. I saw this game at computer stores in the 1990's and...passed on it. (I'd rather get smoked by Sariens as "Roger Wilco" than play a "40-year-old-balding-Lothario" trying to bed a buxom woman.) However, if you'd like to swim in this part of the gene pool, be my guest. (Double entendres, Sexism, and "dirty old man moves" are rampant in this Sierra Online digital world.) You have been warned! VGA point-and-click version.
  25. The previous Gixie clock was a quality control mess: One tube socket not glued, the clock would dim if "shaken or stirred," and one tube was DOA. (Dead on arrival.) The manufacturer contacted "Techmoan" and sent: A replacement tube and TWO Gixie clocks! These "2.0" versions are much better built and no amount of "earthquake shakes" dim the display. See the video for particulars on the revised version...
  26. Submitted for your approval, a laid back song about a Significant Other.
  27. Submitted for your approval, a very long song from "Weird Al" Yankovic about a vegetable dish associated with Northern Europe. (I saw a song titled "Albuquerque Turkey," and another song about that town in New Mexico took over.) Original songs by His Weirdness are rare, and long ones are likewise uncommon. So take that head of fresh cabbage and "go Samurai Chef" on it while salting as the occasion moves you. (Just don't bring it to a Thanksgiving dinner!) "Albuquerque Turkey" (vocal)
  28. Good afternoon, fellow "running dogs" and "capitalist war mongers," our favorite Man from Ukraine has some "down with the U.S.A.!" posters to show you. Not quite as angry or threatening as similar "wall art" from Pyongyang, but of historical interest. (So far.)
  29. School days in 1931 Tokyo. What's that, you say? Where's the sound? It's a Silent movie by an early master of Japanese film who eschews "that new-fangled noise." Get in line, single file, march to the field!
