Subject: BS: What should we bring back again ?

Everything old is new again, eventually.

Its absurd to bring back clean coal miners, buggy whips and white male dominance over everything but there are some wonderful vintage solutions, seeds and ideas we need again. What are they?

Movies that have something to offer other than visual effects and noise- such
neglected structures as: coherent plotlines, realistic characters,plausible
motivations, some depth of thought on the part of the screenwriter; and, oh yes, once in a blue moon, a happy ending.

Knobs. I would so appreciate knobs on my radio, which of course
has been combined with a CD player. I so miss the ability of finding a
station with ease, or just sampling stations up and down the bandwidth,simply by twisting a knob. I don t need or want a computer
in my radio demanding me to program a station! Just give me a knob!

Halibut that costs less than $22 a pound. And that tastes like
halibut.

Certainly knobs on radios. Especially car radios. Change channels / bands / tracks without taking eyes off road. Unfortunately microchips and tactile switches are cheap while concentric controls are expensive.

So RDS radios are infra-dig? I don't want to change stations, I just want one that can find the same station on a different frequency as I drive around. Knobs is fer nobs.

Movies that have something to offer other than visual effects and noise- such

An interesting TED talk on the subject showed a sequence where one frame in 20 were sequenced. Old B&W movies from (say the 30s) compared with modern fare.

The message was: scene changes are at least twice as often. Less time to absorb the message. And I find that there is a lot of assumed knowledge which is surely part of that. No time to provide all the information before the scene changes. It is a fashion born out of the ease of editing, and why I don't go the the cinema as often as I did. See it on TV and you can re-wind &/or switch on subtitles. Some movies the latter is advisable anyway.

You knew a thread with this title
would inspire some irony and sarcasm in responses,
not to mention all-out satire.

So, not to be left out,
here is what Flanders and Swann said
(but did not record in the recording studio --
only left a recording of a live-on-stage performance)


o dear... can't do this yet.
What I want to do is make a blicky of a Mudcat thread with music/lyrics.
It's Threadid=158265, "Bring Back the Birch."

At least now you know it's there.

Irn Bru concentrate for Sodastream machines - in fact do Sodastream machines still exist? If not, bring them back too! Our nephew in Canada loved Irn Bru and the concentrate was a good way of taking it out in the hold luggage: you'd never get away with it these days I suppose if the XR machines picked up all your secreted bottles of orange liquid! Can;t stand the stuff myself, but many Scots swear by it as a hangover cure!

Bonnie Prince Charlie. Showers that don't have low flow on them (I am in and out of a shower in under a minute so I don't waste water). Plastic bags, maybe 20 total per lifetime, that are made to last for years and years and we used to get. Horrible fines if they end up in the ocean. Latin Mass. Pretty songs in church (Catholic). Occupational education for all high school students, including those with superioristic attitudes. WPA programs. Jobs for all. People who respect other people's celebration, like St. Patrick's day..did I use my apostrophes correctly? Oh yea..ice cream with shamrocks in it. Peppermint ice cream for christmas. Shorter advent and lent and less giving up and more adding in. Mutual respect and appreciation between men and women.

i really miss the ladies underwear adverts on telly. they only do ladies underwear adverts for for people who are incontinent these days.

i suppose most of us are of an age where we go round pissing ourselves, and that a touch of reality does us all good.

however - i find them a wee bit less alluring.

triumph have the bra for the way you are, and the lady in black tights and a playtex girdle are no more, and i miss them.
