Good point there, but, if you look into the 90s, household-tech wise, the "grandpa-box" computers were far clumsier, and slower with less capacity and dial-up modems, the TVs were all CRTs (like the computer monitors), you had mainly VCRs with VHS and the DVD's in the late 90s were more exclusive and cutting-edge technology. Also, musical CDs were top yet mainstream tech, and musical tapes were still around and plentiful.

Idle thought for the day:
The automobiles from most of the 70s, it may have been the malaise period in automotive history (especially in the USA), with tightening emissions and detuning to save fuel, due to lack of available tech, as well as tacked-on looking flat-bumpers to comply with standards, but, you gotta admit, those cars still did look good on the cop-shows, popular at that time.

Idle thought for the day:
Pee Wee Herman always quipped, "why don't you take a picture, it will last longer" (though that line's been used elsewhere), but now, with cellphone cameras being ubiquitous, that line has great credibility.

Idle thought for the day:
Isnít in funny how when David Banner (Bruce Banner in earlier versions) transforms into the Incredible Hulk, he busts out of all his garments except his pants, just like when Charlie Brown is on his pitcherís mound, and a line-drive whizzes by and he gets flipped by it, and of all his clothes fly off, but his pants manage to stay in place?!

Idle thought for the day:

Is this coincidence or Murphy's Law...

At any given social situation, from anything from a gathering, to a bar or club, or a car cruise-night meet, I could be hanging around at times and feel invisible, and no one appears to pay attention to me (so it seems) - but... the minute I take my iPhone out, to either look at something, or to text, or even be on a phone-call, people start coming around me to ask questions, want to talk, or want my ear.

Is this just coincidence or timing?!
Any of you get this, too?

The Simpsons and Futurama, sort of today's answer to The Flintstones and The Jetsons.

Here's a little idle thought:
I do miss the days when you had basic TV cable, and didn't require a cable-box (as Cablevision had it), just the coaxial-cable set in the TV & VCR, and you used the set's remote. A clean and simple system.
As a matter of fact, I dearly miss when you didn't need cable at all, and just 7 stations of VHF and a couple of UHF, and didn't have monthly bills, let alone a Doctorate to install and operate componentry!

Here's an idle thought for the day...

I recently caught a TV news report where young, early-elementary school children, in a certain school, were being exposed to The Beatles for their music-appreciation class. The reporter followed-up and stated that "it's their grandparents music". Yes, that was a bit freaky to hear, and it really measures how time marched on. I stopped to think that my grandparents music is 1920s ragtime and whatever was recorded on thick 78-rpm record-albums. My parents music would be big-band era, 1940s swing up to 1950s pre-rock & roll.

Here's a goofy idle thought for the day...

How come on The Simpson's, Maggie stays an pacifier-sucking infant, between 1-2 years of age, who still doesn't speak (but occasionally babbles) through the entire series run (so far), but Quik-E Mart owner Apu and his wife's octuplets who were born later in the 1999-2000 season, have grown to pre-school toddlers.
