I have been on a bit of an artsy fartsy kick lately which obviously means I am still jobless. But that, my friends is not the point. The point is, in my search for the perfect images to satisfy my little collage heart, I finally found a used bookstore in our neighborhood. The selection is far from vast but I did manage to find a few gems including a 1973 National Geographic. Not only did this NatGeo provide me with some good clippings, it also led me on a bit of a stroll down memory lane. Though 1973 is a few years before my time, I still feel like these pictures are a part of my past. That, and some of them made me laugh hysterically so I thought I'd share. My how far we've come....
|Not just Chromocolor but SUPER Chromacolor. WTF is chromacolor?!?! Hey, but how could you ever turn down a TV that came with its own white plastic stand and a faux wood finish?|
|Tee hee. Think this pretty much speaks for itself. Yep - that's right....there's a projector involved.|
|Ah - the good ol' flying "W"|
|The "Accutron" - bringing technology....and awkward design elements to a wrist near you.|
