Dot matrix printer serenade

I'm sort of punting today, as I'm getting further behind on things. This clip showed up on one of the Husband's favorite sites. The premise is that, due to the writer's strike, Fox is running an earlier pilot of "24" that was made in 1994. The title of the piece is "What if Jack Bauer used AOL 3.0?". I don't watch "24" myself, but I found this incredibly funny - it's another commentary on technology and things we generally take for granted these days. Oh, for the days of dot matrix printers with those irritating tear-off sides.

I made the Giveaway necklace last night. It looks quite nice (if I say so myself). However, since I'm so obsessed with resin-filled pendants these days, I'm thinking I may want to make something else for the Giveaway, so I'm going to go out and fiddle with the resin a bit now. Oh, and I made the last pendant that will go into the store - it came out pretty well, I think. I hope you'll drop by the store this weekend to take a look at it (and everything else, of course)!

In order to clear up some time to get everything done, I will not be posting tomorrow. Please come back on Saturday for my 100th post/Etsy store opening Giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sounds like it's all coming together for you just fine. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got in your shop!

That video was funny! Oddly, that period of technology passed me by, even though they were my college years. Amazingly, the years between 1991-1996 while I was in art school were quite tech-less for me. Too busy learning old school technology like kiln firing and felt making, I guess, lol!

Looking forward to your shop! squee!

Brilliant! And a good reminder of how frustrating life was before broadband!

And in Keifer Sutherland, I think they chose wisely :)

Good luck this weekend ....
