Well it's almost Christmas kids, and a long-standing tradition of mine, after having my cocoa and counting my presents, is to relax in my fake-wood-paneled basement and enjoy some classic retro TV Christmas specials in glorious 480i resolution whilst eating Twinkees. No, no, I don't have a time machine, well I'm sort of working on one, but it's years from completion and I still don't know where I'm going to find a high enough grade of plutonium for the...ummm...yeah...so since I DO NOT HAVE A TIME MACHINE I just plop down in front of my home computer, log onto the information super-highway, fire up Netscape and visit BetamaXmas.com. Complete with a ratty but comfortable couch, and what I'm pretty sure is a Bo Derek poster on the wall, BetamaXmas serves up past-time holiday goodies and retro commercials in a totally rad 80s style, complete with a VCR which perpetually flashes 12:00 a.m. There's even a TV Guide and channel changer available if you feel like surfing and make sure you adjust the antennas on top of the TV to ensure the best possible reception. And in case you're wondering, that's Ethel Merman in the screenshot singing "The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow" on an old Sesame Street Christmas special. Crazy. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Well today is December 21st and I guess the world was supposed to end. Billions of deaths, mass hysteria, the fall of man and his stupendous civilization...interesting, I suppose...I guess I liked it better the first time it happened when it was called Y2K. Now, I'm off to troll the 2012 doomsday sites - see you guys in 4 to 5 billion years when the sun runs out of gas!

Imagine a dystopian universe in which all the world's industrial assembly robots have been replaced by clumsy people. Horrific image, right?
Now imagine that the world's consumer electronics assembly plants (staffed with the aforementioned fleshy, human laborers) have been moved overseas, and relocated in the United States of America. It's not a futurist nightmare, it's the past bitch!
Spend 4½ minutes on the Ms. Pac Man assembly line in this newly-digitized raw news footage from the Bally/Midway plant in Chicago, 1982.
