Salvador Dalí Explains His Famous Mustache

Even if you were never curious about Salvador Dalí’s mustache, it’s still interesting to know about it from the man himself. I had no idea this video existed until today. The Name’s The Same is apparently a game show that aired between 1951 – 1955 on ABC. Via: Open Culture

The Big Bang Theory Call Me Maybe Flash Mob

The Big Bang Theory did a surprise flash mob. Some more video, apparently taken by someone in the audience can be found here. The real gem of the whole thing is in the background: Sheldon never breaks out of character. Dr. Sheldon Cooper FTW indeed. Disclosure: I’m a CBS employee. This blog however is not […]

Mr. Wizard’s A Dick

Yes it’s out of context, and he wasn’t really mean (but he wasn’t as soft as TV hosts are today). I still thought this is pretty funny. It’s probably not a shock to anyone who reads this blog, but I loved Mr. Wizard’s show growing up. Later on I also really enjoyed Bill Nye. I’m […]

“Johnny Carson: King of Late Night”

It’s almost 2 hours long and it went by in about 5 minutes. It’s worth watching. Also: I never knew Johnny Carson was the classic introvert. Via John Gruber

DuMont Telecruiser

Here’s an interesting piece of history. Almost nobody knows that there was another broadcast network in the US other than the CBS, NBC, ABC, and more recently FOX (which launched in the last 80’s). DuMont was gone by 1956. It was the original home to The Honeymooners. It’s a slightly strange but fascinating time in […]

Age In Media Years…

Here’s a great little tidbit to make you feel old(er): In 4 years, the Back to the Future movie will be as old to us as 1955 was to us when Back to the Future came out. – @joedrew And to top it off: The Wonder Years aired 88-93, was set 68-73. A modern Wonder […]

Number Based Consumerism

Number based consumerism is when a consumer bases their buying habits on one or more numbers typically part of a products specifications. You likely see this all the time, and perhaps even have been guilty of it yourself. It’s most prevalent in technology though it exists in other sectors.

Phil Plait’s Bad Universe

I’ve mentioned Phil Plait and his awesome Bad Astronomy blog a few times here over the past few years. Way back when (early last decade) we were using the same web host and support forum. He’s now getting his own show: Phil Plait’s Bad Universe on the Discovery Channel. I can also say that I […]

Sitcom Homes On Google Maps

I always thought it would be fun to locate some classic TV locations and find them on Google Maps. Here’s some of the more interesting things I’ve found in my research. Each photo is a link to Google maps with the actual location should you want to pan around your favorite neighborhoods.

Steve Wozniak On Dancing With The Stars

I couldn’t resist the awkward screen grab. 😉 I knew it would be all over the web a matter of minutes after it aired. If he survives a round or two it will be due to fans not the judges. I think that will be more interesting than the actual dancing. Judges didn’t seem to […]
