I Remember the 70's...

Just finished watching part one of a three part series on PBS produced by the BBC called "Electric Dreams". The 13 year old family member had never seen a vinyl record before, but thought it was neat to actually have something "physical" to hold for a music purchase, unlike downloads. The family home was outfitted with strictly 1970's technology, meaning no microwaves, no cellphones, no computers... and each day was a new year in the decade, with new gadgets brought in.

Now me... I could probably spend 10 days with 1970's stuff, because I remember the decade well, didn't even have a color TV in the house until 1975. The boy however, he'd probably implode after a day without his games and satellite TV. In the 70's, a "mix tape", recording songs onto a blank cassette was a new concept... even though I was doing that well into the early 1990's, before recordable CD's were affordable.

After 10 days however, I'd be WAY behind catching up on emails, posting to this journal, etc. The TV thing still wouldn't bother me much probably... if nothing was on worth watching, I'd just read a book.
