    My family didn't have a color TV till 1976. My kids have no idea...HD flat panels in almost every room.

    Someone want to pass me that reel to reel?

    Well, she still has a chance of doing just that (she's still a kid) :)

    But I know what you mean. I once told a not so terribly young student about the widespread fear of HIV when Freddie Mercury died, and got a blank stare in response. Then I added 'you know, Freddie Mercury....Queen...We Will Rock You' only to get another blank expression. Kids :p

    Of course, but I didn't see your movie until just a few months ago. You were very good. And then I heard about your show and watched some parts of it on Youtube. Were you all on drugs?
