Barenaked Ladies Comedy Concert Clip

The Barenaked Ladies are celebrating 25 years of making music. We saw them at The Santa Barbara Bowl on June 22, 2013. It was a GREAT concert. NOTE TO YOUTUBE: This is just talk and NO copyrighted music, so please don’t hassle me! That “note” eludes to the reality that YT cracks down hard on any of us who post any unlicensed music. Personally, I don’t get it when it’s recording a “live” event, but I can’t risk having them shut me down. So, this clip is in the middle of the Barenaked Ladies performing “If I Had a Million Dollars” and is simply a comedy bit – a very funny one. I hope you enjoy it!

The Evolution of Technology: Home Movies

by Professor David E. Weber and Bruce Sallan

Our technology series continues a bit more on target by remembering the early days of home movies. We mean “movies” like in film, like in 16-mm, 8-mm and Super Eight, which were the primary sizes/forms when home movies were introduced. Professor Weber will lead off with his recollections and memories of this long-gone technology:

A projector casting flickering images onto a flimsy portable screen in a darkened living room: we called it watching home movies, once the only way an amateur filmmaker or chronicler of family life could work with the moving image.
