Clydeart,
You must have been part of the wealthy people we heard about when I was young, (wink, wink, nod, nod) we didn't have TV until the early 60's. You ain't much older than me... I enlisted in the Army in 71 and my last hurrah was Operation Desert Storm. Keep ranting brother

@tmartinback Not "rich". My dad was a radio announcer (rural station WFVA) at the time who was looking to secure his future with acquired knowledge. Radio Shack had a closeout on DIY TV kits which weren't selling well and he and his employer were able to get the kits at a steep discount in exchange for some radio advertising spots.

@belew
Hmmm ... maybe my rants would make good blog or other posts for drawing attention to my Etsy site. (?)Kinda quirky but maybe cool?

"Alfred Hitchcock made his three most popular films three decades into his career, at ages fifty-nine (Vertigo), sixty (North by Northwest), and sixty-one (Psycho)."

@Belew

Alfred Hitchcock also appeared in most of his own films. How he accomplished that (from shadow, to photograph, to newspaper ad, to man who missed the bus) is a testament to his brilliance.

I appear in most of my content. Does that make me brilliant @rev? 8-)

My "ranting" would be more like historic anecdotes that describe history as sen through the eyes of my grandparents and parents, aunts, uncles etc. tied to growing up and "coming of age" in the 40's and 50's, then my flash through the hippy period, takes on architecture and art through the late 1990's. Hopefully my target audience would be the millennials who have little knowledge of those times, but who might be enticed by catchy headlines to read. Items like barnstorming flyers renting a fallow farm field along a road and putting on a show while the 10 kids of the farmer get to fly with the barnstorming pilots free. Wing walkers and the like. Perhaps a bit from grandfathers youth about John Philip Souza's band coming to town and playing on the village green.

@Clydeart - y, what's old is what's new again..

If you go into hipster store, Urban Outfitters, you'll actually see record players and vinyl showcased next to iPhone cases and laptop bags instead of discounted on eBay as junk..

Similarly, there are musicians like the Black Keys who have made a name for themselves by rebooting 70's style music.

While "those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it," maybe those who take a cue from it can avoid reinventing the wheel and refine what's worked!

30-smths are saying more and more to the 60-smths.

"Would you plz say that again? I wasn't paying attention earlier. I am ready to listen now."
