  1. Past hour
  2. Yesterday
  3. Yes the lyrics featured on a programme recently and as soon as I heard them I recognised the song from 1991 but not the name or artist. I will try and listen to some of the words again and let you know
  4. By 'Hindu themed' do you mean it made use of sitar, tabla or other instruments from the subcontinent? Or do you mean Hindu in the sense of mantras and sanskrit lyrics?
  5. Is that Holiday Muzak at the Mall getting you down with Earworm after Earworm? Fear not, Vincent Price has just the cure for "singing dogs, clanging bells, and Bing Crosby." In a sort of "Christmas at Ground Zero," this Halloween classic will put you in the mood for "The Nightmare Before Christmas" or "The Corpse Bride." So plug in your Victrola voicebox, were gonna do dastardly things to insufferable professionals.;) "Weird Al" is in the house!
  6. Submitted for your approval, an answer to a question about "Techmoan's record speed war." What did those 1930's RCA Victor records sound like? Were these early vinyl disks as easily destroyed as alleged by rivals? "VWestlife" has a 1931 RCA Victor disk (Was $50, sold for $30) that will set the record straight on this alternative to the "maximum of five minutes" 78 RPM platters of the day. If you think that 78 RPM is/was mind-blowing-fast, take a look at the speed champ, a 1905 Pathe 120 RPM record!: Vive La France!
  7. Last week
  8. Trying to find out name of a song from 1991. All I can recall is it had a bit of a Hindu theme to it. Checked all Top 40s of 1991 but can't seem to find it
  9. Submitted for your approval, an "EA Kids" game, "Eagle Eye Mysteries." I was introduced to the game with this question: "Are you smarter/as smart/dumber than the average 12-year-old"? (I was a tad smarter.;) OK, "Sherlock," put on your roller skates and solve some nysteries around town...
  10. Speaking of LucasArts/LucasFilm, did you ever wonder what the "MM" of the "SCUMM" game engine was all about? Submitted for your approval, "Maniac Mansion" (1987), Amiga version. What is this "Purple Tentacle"?
  11. Submitted for your approval, an offbeat but serious take on Veteran's Day from..."WKRP in Cincinnati"!? Les Nessman is concerned about the "helicopter gap' that WPIG has over WKRP, and signs on a crop duster pilot for the morning traffic report. On Veteran's Day, Buddy the crop duster pilot reveals that he has a plan to honor veterans like himself. With a terrified news director in tow, WKRP makes aviation history...
  12. Submitted for your approval, a version of "Hallelujah" for Vetersns...
  13. Have you ever wondered why the Vinyl(ite) record world is divided into 33 1/3 and 45 RPM disks? Fear not, "Techmoan" takes us on a "Wayback machine" journey to 1949, when...well, you'll have to find out for yourself. Submitted for your approval, Columbia/CBS Records announces, RCA Victor grouses, and Philco cleans up like gangbusters, in a tale of THREE record disk speeds! No Shellac bugs were hurt during the production of this video...which lacks Puppets!
  14. Submitted for your approval, a song about now and tomorrow. Have an interesting weekend.
  15. Submitted for your approval, World War II from the Axis side. A disparate group of German soldiers are facing encirclement and death at the hands of vengeful Russians. The commander of the group is wounded and is taken from the Eastern to the Western front. There is a romance figuring in this tale, before the June 6, 1944 Allied landings, which threaten to wipe out the film's principal characters. Both the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes have judged the film "less than watchable," so you will have to render your own judgment on this Indie war movie. (Now I have to find a World War I movie for "Armistice Day.")
  16. I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information. run 3
  17. It is rare to see such as the post. I am glad to visit your site. Thanks for sharing the informative information through the article. and all the details are awesome and good in this post. t rex game
  18. Submitted for your approval, an "overly enthusiastic Irish gamer" tries out a "rat with wings," the Urban Pigeon. The company that created this simulator also have "I Am Bread" and "I Am Fish" simulations that are alternately hilarious and dramatic, depending on how quickly you finish a task. (What kind of task does "Bread" have? What kind of task imperils a Goldfish in a glass bowl/aquarium?) Have fun decorating the city and hatching the next generation of despoilers!
  19. Earlier
  20. I was looking at random YouTube videos and this full length/letterboxed movie appeared as a suggestion. Submitted for your approval, the reel West's laziest gunfighter.
  21. Submitted for your approval, a "Hertz rending" problem for UK Boffin, "Techmoan." The UK runs on 230V, 50Hz line power, while the U.S. and Japan run on 100-115V, 60Hz, which becomes a problem for "Techmoan" when he imports interesting/unique/decrepit tech. What to do? How about a battery-powered voltage inverter? It's a "humdinger" for "Techmoan" and this time, The Puppets Are Back!;)
  22. Graham Norton shows up on BBC America on Friday evenings for jokes, talks, funny asides, and a musical guest. When the local Spectrum cable TV digital-or-nothing upgrade arrived last year, I began looking at this variety show. (If I couldn't find something interesting on YouTube or TCM, that is.;) I didn't check check for a "Big Red Chair" spot at the end, but see if somebody gets dumped!
  23. Halloween horrors have passed and November has arrived. Is there something or someone that you'd like to come back? Here's the original Kapena "front three" asking an eternal question...
  24. Part 1/2 of Adventure Games by "PushingUpRoses" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQrwR_7SNNo&t=134s Part 2 (Plus Dynamix games) Submitted for your approval, suggestions for more than 11 PC adventure games of the 1990's. From "Whodunit?" to "Can you do it?" games across time and space...
  25. Like most artists, blink-182 have been rather cryptic about telling people what the song is about. Guitarist/vocalist, Tom DeLonge, said that the song was about vulnerability and being a guy trying to tell a girl that he loves her. Part of bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus' verse—the Nightmare Before Christmas line—is actually from drummer, Travis Barker. "We can live like Jack and Sally if we want." A haunting refrain about a loving couple living in a sinister world. One could be forgiven for wondering what demons Travis Barker was wrestling with at the time.The song's more about the vulnerability and kind of heart-wrenching pain you feel when you're in love and when you're a guy and you're trying to tell a girl, 'Don't waste your time coming and talking to me because, in my head at least, you probably already gave me up a long time ago. — Tom DeLonge (former blink-182 Guitarist/Vocalist)
  26. There was a song titled (I think) Boys and Girls somewhere between 1992 Nd 2002 by a group which had the lyrics along the lines of... Boys and Girls. We run the whole damn world... ... boys and boys and boys and girls... Does anyone remember such a song, and who the Group were?
  27. Submitted for your approval, a cheese sandwich! This culinary gem from "Techmoan's" kitchen is...hold on there, this is about electronics, not Food! Ahem, submitted for your approval, the Gixie clock, which simulates a "Nixie tube" display and comes in various colors. "For how long?" You cheeky plonker! What does it matter if this Chinese "appliance" is poorly built, displays substandard quality control, and raises the ire of "Techmoan"? You've just gotta see how this...thing disappoints in so many ways.
  28. Jazz instrumentalists "paint pictures with songs or tunes" instead of words. This suggestion popped up on YouTube and I followed the link to see if there were dancers on stage. Submitted for your approval, a performance that will set your feet in motion as if it were still Summer. Warning! This music may be too stimulating for Halloween.;)
  29. It's the weekend before Halloween, and TV is full of the usual suspects. (Vampires, Ghosts, Werewolves, Zombies, big business folk;) In keeping with the season, here's an ethereal performance from a local band... Streetlight Cadence: "Thinking of You" Justin Young - "Until the Morning"
