12:01 am - What?

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

...that we can hope for. I'm going to try out for Metropolitan Opera when I get through screwing around with this stuff. That ought to fix the little bastards for this evening. Now we will have no pauses in between in case. I hope they don't slow this down.

I remember this from when I was a kid and I watched the Electric Company. Possibly the weirdest thing they ever aired!

Current Mood: weirdweird

The Electric Company was Sesame Street on drugs (not like that detracts from it, that makes it better IMHO!)

Just like Boobah is Teletubbies on acid. (That's the *only* explanation I have for that show!)

Ha! Looks like that joke stayed private for about thirty years. Makes me wonder what Alvin & The Chipmunks have been saying behind my back. ^.^

I wonder where the guy who recorded that is now. I'm picturing him finding this clip on YouTube and laughing and saying "Finally!"

And since it was aired on TV, the only way anybody could've found what was going on is if they had professional video equipment; basically only the people in the industry. I'm sure they didn't even think of the possibility that personal computers (let alone the Internet!) would be powerful enough to decode the message.

This was, in fact, the first thing that settled over my mind. I was a huge fan of the Electric Company, and now, three decades later, the one intelligible word from that whole bit, "What?", has been answered.

The Hivemind is making it harder and harder to be sly. ^.^

Hi, This is Rob. That is just completely mind blowing. who needs illegal drugs when you have people messing with audio/visual equipment, or who animate cartoons on tv? Heh, Heh. Remember folks, hiding naughty messages on kids' entertainment can cost you your job. please be careful with your jobs. Thanks for the info on the backwards stuff, KT, that is a lot of fun.

Or it could be Rob Landley, the guy who ran Linucon, a sci-fi/geek convention in Austin I went to once.

Lately I've been thinking of it as the Animaniacs of educational children's television (yes, even above 'Hysteria!') because of the fun anything-goes attitude they had while making it.
