Dream Whip ad, 1982, showing that if you add instant froth and some pudding mix to a regular cake mix you can double the volume of the cake… basically by doubling the quantity of dry material in the dough.
Also: see the TV advertisement for Dream Cake!
written on the back (recently): “Gran Ma Cuthbert — Pocatello, Idaho 1937”
Two ways to look at life as presented in a 1981 women’s magazine, though I have seen these in the likes of Popular Mechanics. “Not a religion” (though the competing mindframe Dianetics is considered one by some) but like several other related studies that have been posted here it’s psycho-cybernetics to shape your worldview as a means of improving your status.
35mm negative movie film was the long-time standard for creating movies you’d see at the theatre because every theatre had a 35mm projector, where they may or may not have had projection ability for some of the other popular formats. With the popularity of digital projection in recent years, only about 30% of theatres still have 35mm projectors onhand. Kodak still produces this stock, but as of March 2013 Fujifilm has stopped. [Wikipedia]
I obtained about two feet of 35mm film negative today from a rubberstamp and vintage/antique paper dealer. I don’t know what movie this is (the information on the clapper is blurry because the focus is beyond it on the second actor), however judging by how the film is negative and that the clapper is visible in most of the frames, this was the stock originally shot for whatever movie this was going to be cut to produce. Also, there is no audio track that would be between the sprockets and the images running down the left side visible .
Maybe it’s because she’s friggin’ Wonder Woman? 1981
Actually, putting the paper back into the typewriter is much faster and easier than this. ‘Neat Sheets’ by Dixon, the pencil manufacturer, 1981.
Wind him up and he goes hoooome. 1982
But instead of his heart lighting up, it’s his lungs.
Tiger Electronics Massively Mini Media, 2006.
128mb flash storage (thus 2 hours of music or 1 hour of video), 1.1” OLED screen (96x64), plays AVI / MPEG / WMV (all when converted to AMV) / MP3 / WMA, views JPGs but you gotta be kidding on that size screen, has FM radio and the ability to record off the radio (and gets really good reception, you’ll notice the earbud cord is metallic for a reason), and has a Li-ion battery which charges through the USB and has a lackluster life of 4 hours for music or 2 hours for video but that’s still twice the device’s capacity so it’s okay, the MP3 shuffle function does not work right, and the best feature IMHO is that Windows sees it as a flash drive so there’s no transfer software necessary… even if you need AMV conversion software.
This was marketted to the ‘tweens, and all the free video available for it on TigerTube.com came from Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Never mind that detail, it’s fine for grownups (and grownup content). Video software came with it but I downloaded MyMPxPlayer.org’s AMV conversion software for more flexibility. And while I say the color is deep scarlet purple, the website calls this color “pink”. 128mb? I’m guessing that’s for price point, since that’s an absurdly small capacity for anything that’s supposed to play video…
As a proof that one can watch video ripped from DVD on this little critter (not just Internet porn which the average person has handy, or the Cartoon Network/Nickelodeon videos the maker offers on their website), I converted The Paragon of Comedy (Showtime special, 1983) from DVD to AVI then to AMV. The whole hour fit when encoded at lower quality. What a blast!
I remember these things. Pretty much the MiniDisc of cameras. ;)
Difference being you can still get MiniDisc media and play the discs. This blog is a fan of MiniDisc.
