Flashback Friday

“This home movie clip begs the question, why did we ever stop playing with baby raccoons? My husband found this vintage cute on YouTube where it says, “This is from a collection of 16mm home movies purchased at a flea market. It appears to be 1960s era Kodachrome.” -Megan M.

“Kodachro-oh-ome! You give us those nice bright colors, you give us the greens of summers, makes you think all the world’s sunny day. Oh yeah!”

If you don’t know what Kodachrome is, it was color camera film. And if you don’t know what camera film is, well, get offa my lawn! (shakes cane).

Lyrics by Paul Simon, and if you don’t know who that is then – gah.

All Right, Here’s the Plan

Leroy, search all the garbage cans and collect as many banana peels as you can carry. Carl, get me a bucket with all the oil you can scavenge — canola, 10W-40, doesn’t matter. Then we spread it all out on this blind curve…


and wait.

“Hi Cute Team, I thought I’d seen it all. But then I found this little winged jellybean with bright yellow floof! (I’m seeing kind of a cat face thing. You?) And its name is Squeaking Silk Moth! They actually make little “squeek” sounds if you touch ‘em. Help me decide – cute, weird, or both? Squeek and thanks!” -Kathleen C.
