Let’s All Go to the Lobby and then Watch Some Movies?

Bart Miller pointed to a site I love and reminded me of all the good movies there.  And then I thought I might take some of my favorites and put them onto the ever cool streaming movie platform, Synchtube.

And after you have gone to the lobby to get yourself some food, settle in and watch some of these awesome movies.

  1. As a documentary junkie, I appreciate this muchly! I watched the typewriter one – what a way to save such a lost art as typing and typewriters! Plus, of course, his immense talent. My mom was a secretary for thirty years; I am sure she can attest to its acuracy. When they first switched over to computers, she typed so fast that the computer could not keep up.

    Thanks, Terry. You inspire me.

    1. Yeah, I have that on my listen wishlist. Seems I am listening as much as reading. Just finished listening to a trilogy by Ben Winters called “The Last Detective”. Pre-apocalyptic and an oddly appropriate listen for the holidays on the theory that you don’t miss the water till the well runs dry.
