Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

People Using Telephones

Hello again.

Today I found a truly bizarre, but fascinating item in YouTube: People Using Telephones:

It comes from the Huntley Film Archive, is 28 minutes in length, surely a record for YouTube, and is the worst piece of editing I have ever come across - by a large margin.

Nevertheless I found it irresistible and I hope that you do too.

After I got about halfway through I found myself regarding the telephone, an instrument usually taken for granted, in a detached way. An interesting experience indeed.

Until the next time.
