Commemorating My First YouTube Collaboration

Just remember folks, when I hit YouTube stardom and you start seeing me in cameos on all your favorite channels, it all started with a quirky teenage vlogger out of the UK asking irreverent questions of her fellow Small YouTube community.

Thanks, Christie! I’ll return the favor sometime!

90s Video Camera Demo Tape

Remember walking by those camera displays in department stores back in the 80s and 90s? You didn’t realize they were rolling, did you?

BEHOLD! I GIVE YOU, THE 90s! CANDID!

Memories of Adam West’s Batman 1966

This groovy theme from the 60’s Batman series always conjures up a specific image in my mind: one of eating breakfast on the “back porch” of the Yellow House (really the extended kitchen/dining room area leading to the actual back porch), an unfinished solarium where we had a small aluminum and plastic dining table. There was a small Sears color television sitting on the corner of the table that I was watching Saturday Morning Cartoons on. It was late into the block, and the last shows to air were on WXIA (Channel 11, the local NBC affiliate): Batman and Superboy. It was hard to get a decent picture, so I was constantly getting up to adjust the rabbit ear antenna to catch the broadcast signal as it meandered around the shadow of Kennesaw Mountain and bounced against nearby Lost Mountain.

WXIA stopped showing Batman reruns not long after that, replacing them with a block by producer Peter Engel that included Saved By The Bell and the knock-off California Dreams. I don’t recall what happened to that TV set, either. We may have given it to a relative in need or it may have just died altogether; it was the 1980s.

Also to be noted was the little family in-joke when my dad and I would get into his old 66 Chevrolet truck wherein one of us would start the familiar checklist and the other would finish:

This inverted poop emoji totally looks like Mr. Glitch from Square One TV

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who sees it.

LPT: How To Keep A Trash Bag From Ballooning In The Bin

Ever notice how trash bags balloon up when you place them in the bin? Here’s an easy way to fix the problem!

TRANSCRIPT:

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:01,680
Have you ever noticed how when you put a

2
00:00:01,680 –> 00:00:03,810
new bag in the trash bin, it does this

3
00:00:03,810 –> 00:00:06,690
annoying balloon thing and you have to go

4
00:00:06,690 –> 00:00:09,030
back and let the trapped air out and fix

5
00:00:09,030 –> 00:00:12,330
it all? Well next time you take out the

6
00:00:12,330 –> 00:00:15,299
trash, try this tip: grab your drill motor

7
00:00:15,299 –> 00:00:18,090
and use a half-inch twist bit to cut a

8
00:00:18,090 –> 00:00:20,490
series of holes along the bottom

9
00:00:20,490 –> 00:00:23,789
edge of one side of the bin. The holes

10
00:00:23,789 –> 00:00:26,670
will allow trapped air to escape when the

11
00:00:26,670 –> 00:00:29,070
bag fills, and prevent that annoying

12
00:00:29,070 –> 00:00:33,239
balloon effect. Don’t forget to like and share
