No More Blank Tapes archive, vol. 2

There’s nothing quite like an end of year round up, so like the veritable Wonder-Woman-lasso-meets-sheep-dog-from-the-hit-animatronic-film-Babe that I am, I’ve fetched and bundled you the No More Blank Tapes archive, vol. 2.

Back in April, when I presented the No More Blank Tapes archive, vol. 1, I had industriously collected 21 themes over 2 and a 1/2 months. Here, in volume 2, I present 11 themes lackadaisically collected over 8 months. Depending on what aspect of my life you’re looking at, that either equals a productivity slump (on You Tube) or boom (in real life). Either way, there’s always a positive out there. Go put your tongue on a 9 v battery and feel that crazy tingle if you don’t believe me.

Merry Christmas.

No More Blank Tapes archive, vol. 1

The wonderful thing about vids is that you can play them over and over and over again, FOREVER – until, of course, they stretch, and lag, and shed oxide, and delaminate, and, well, show’s over quicker than you can say ‘Ghost of Christmas special past’.

I’m in the ungainly process of moving continents, so won’t be around for quite a bit – three or four weeks, even. So, here’s a good chance to dip into the No More Blank Tapes archive, vol. 1.

I can’t quite decide my favourite theme so far. It might be the one about the robots, or the bicycles, or the drawn-out descent, or that game called SIMON.

Catch you on the flipside.
