If you are looking for a break from all the heavy reading regarding world events and politics I came across a really cool site called RetroJunk that would be of interest to those of you like me that grew up in the 60’s/70’s/80’s.
Do you remember Sigmund & the Sea Monsters? How about Inch High Private Eye? This site has clips and articles from these and hundreds of other shows, movies, cartoons, and commercials from the 60’s thru the 80’s. Check it out but be sure that you have a few hours to kill. Beware, a broadband connection would definitely be a plus if you plan on watching the videos.
