Space Patrol: a blast from the past.

This is a show I watched as a small child, and one that I’d forgotten completely until I came across the following a few minutes ago.
I was surprised how much of it brought back memories – the music, the voices, the sound effects and visuals, the character names…

It’s amazing how much the memory can store, locked away, apparently forgotten, ready to be restored given the right key.

  1. I used to like that, too. I ran across it a few times. If it was on regularly, like once per week, I never figured out when that was. Just now, it was fun looking at the intricacies of the sets and figures. And fun thinking about the sounds they decided to use. Thank you.

    Have you seen the latest Space-X landing? It was funny how the camera footage worked. It looked like a magic trick to me. Just looked like it with the flash of light and all that. I’m not one of those who think it didn’t really happen; another hoax like the moon landing.

    Hillary has brought up a promise to
    declassify UFO files (caveat national security).

  3. Thanks for that collection of information. (And direction to technology sites.)

    In the spirit of somewhat disparit related media,
    I have a collection of music I enjoyed while
    looking at the various links today. I had
    been spending a little time today in
    reorganizing some of my music
    playlists. Just happened to
    get to this one a bit prior
    to seeing you’d posted.

    I got somewhat of an
    interest in quirky music
    from my dad. And then I
    have five sons, and myself
    am probably slightly odd too.

    David Makalaston — The Les Claypool Frog Brigade
    The Kraken — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    David Makalaston II — The Les Claypool Frog Brigade
    Take Five (Previously Unreleased) — Dave Brubeck (Quartet)
    Missing Link Parade — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    Fat Cat Keeps Getting Fatter — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    Bedlam Ballroom — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    You’re Driving Me Crazy — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    Suits Are Picking Up the Bill — Squirrel Nut Zippers
    Cosmic Highway — The Les Claypool Frog Brigade
    Whamola — The Les Claypool Frog Brigade
    Lights in the Sky — The Les Claypool Frog Brigade

    I think my dad only knows of Brubeck (not so weird from the above). He, when I was very little, had the particular album pictured where one downloads these pieces. And I am not aware of my sons knowing of any of these artists. But, you know, you get the idea.

    I usually like to end a playlist with something more “positive” — so, one may like to include any or none of the following that I have at the end.

    A Thousand Years — The Piano Guys
    St. Louis Blues (Previously Unreleased) — Dave Brubeck (Quartet)
    Pennies From Heaven (Previously Unreleased) — Dave Brubeck (Quartet)
    Koto Song (Previously Unreleased) — David Brubeck (Quartet)

    [Advisory: I do think I’ve picked the best from Les Claypool, maybe from the Squirrel Nut Zippers as well. I know some of Les’s songs I saw were, shall we say, unclean.]

    {A relatively newish example, my dad likes “O Brother Where Art Thou” (movie and music),
    while he doesn’t in general like country music.}

    I will be reading more at your provided links.
