Roberta X was talking about the big shift to exclusively HDTV, and I had a horrible realization: when that happens, my Panasonic TR-005 Orbitel (space-eggy Jetson TV) will no longer work.
I reserve the right to whine.
For many years I had no tv at all, and then once I was in a junk store with me ma and little Sis, and Sissy and I near had fisticuffs over who was going to get the little $25 cutie-pie of a tv. In the end, I trumped her, saying I, after all, actually needed a tv. Plus it went with my boomerang mid-century modern sofa.
Someone has one for sale on ebay, and they have this picture on the ad of the tv with some other mod pieces. The problem I have is with that ugly-assed chair. I hate to invoke such beastly imagery, but that chair looks like a maxi-pad. Or a commode. In a not-good way. Yuck.
What were they thinking?
