And now for something completely different

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Nice 10 minute interlude for a Friday. Hard to believe this is real. (Hint: The voiceover is very typically from the 50’s. If that grates on your nerves, it’s just as entertaining to watch without the sound.)

Wow – the Internet has changed a little since 1984. Here’s how you get email in the ’80’s: Check out the password. And the “software transmission” at the end of the broadcast. Psychadelic.

Wannabe – Spice Girls
