The Vast Wasteland

If you are anywhere around my age and grew up watching television in the United States, absolutely the worst possible thing you could do is click this link. (Link removed, see update below.)

I'm not kidding. Don't do it.

And if you do, don't leave it running on your computer all day. That would be wrong.

UPDATE: The link connected to a radio station that played nothing but old TV theme songs, commercial-free, around the clock. However, it looks like that was just a short-term gimmick while they switched formats. Now it's just a plain ol' rock-and-roll station, and more's the pity. They had a good thing going.

Why, oh why did I click that link?

You know what came on as the first song?

"HR Puffnstuff".

I was hooked.

Stupid link.

ZOMG. My first song was the theme song for "The Muppet Show".

That was like a party on my computer.

If I get to hear the "HR Puffinstuff" theme song - while I leave it running on my computer all night (can't do days, luv, I'm government now) I fear I will die of sheer happiness.

Now THIS is what the Internet was made for.

OMG - "In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime/Like a streak of light, he arrives just in time!..."

OMG now it's "They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightening..."

This should be federally labeled. Maybe federally controlled.

You can always go to YouTube and watch the Puffinstuff intro. I've found YouTube to be a great resource for just about anything you can imagine.

Here's the link:
