It’s Oscars day today. So I’m of a good mind to just camp out at home first in the morning and, at the very least, watch Billy Crystal do his spiel as it unfolds. Gosh, Billy Crystal. My students these days wouldn’t know who he is, but I’ve sat through his Oscar spiel a number of times before, during his roll from 1989 to 1992, and then sporadically through 2003. He used to look lean and mean. Today he kind’a looks like a grandmother. Then again, notice how when guys age, they start looking like grandmothers?
I used to religiously record the Oscars. On videotape. Back in the mid ’80s I had a Beta Hi-Fi unit which was my pride and joy… even if it broke down quite a lot. Beta Hi-Fi was the first video recording technology that actually recorded audio in true hifi-quality stereo, using FM tracks. Prior to this, Beta and VHS recorders simply laid out tinny mono tracks with pathetic sound quality. And of course VHS eventually aped Sony’s tech by coming out with VHS Hi-Fi too.
Getting senti here. A bit closer to current history, here’s what we had last week…
