One thing you will notice about my Vintage Video feature is that it’s very guitar centric. My former boss pointed out that most of my favorite music that I’d flagged in iTunes was heavy on guitar and bass. So while it’s main focus will be guitar (Which I’m seriously thinking about learning to play since I’ve found out that electric guitars and amps aren’t all that expensive anymore.) with a slight dabbling into synthesizers/keyboards.

Next week I’m considering some Joan Jett. And maybe the week after that some Brothers Johnson. You can get a little taste by checking out the Now Playing tag on this post. Get the Funk Out ma Face has an uncanny similarity to, oh, Get the fuck out of my face.

So I’m trolling around YouTube and I had the bright idea for a new feature of my blog, Vintage Video. This week, The Clash. I always dug them since hearing “Rock the Casbah”.

This Is Radio Clash

Rock the Casbah

And who could forget this anthem, Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Where were these videos when I was a kid? January 2, 2007

This is just too funny. The good doctor gives a variety of techniques for communing with oneself, aka masturbation.

What I’d like to know is where the hell were these videos when I was a kid. I mean, we could have benefit immensely but I’m sure we all developed our own techniques, didn’t we?

In my time computers were strictly text based and in most cases on white on black, or green on black, or amber on black. You could do ASCII art but it wasn’t conducive to video. The of course a couple years later the first IBM PC’s came around with VGA. The only thing that hadn’t caught up was network speeds. I remember transferring a 1MB file via a 2400bps modem. That was when I found out that the phone company does their maintenance at around 2AM. Remember XMODEM? Yes, this was before ZMODEM came around.

Anyhow, here’s the video. Enjoy!

One thing I do note is the PVC technique. Considering that PVC didn’t really get going until 1960 or so, and widespread use didn’t happen until the late 60’s, it’s a pretty safe bet that this is in fact a parody video.
