Lost and Found second Edition

If it's something you watch or hear or read, this is the general grab-bag for it.

Lost and Found second Edition

Postby Anna » Fri Oct 17, 2008 8:29 am

Sorry for starting a new "Lost and found"

The german TV in the old days was especially in the ARD a bunch of different broadcasters, every german state has his own TV and Radio Station.
NDR, WDR, BR SR, SWF, RB, SFB, and so on...
To create the program schedule of a whole day all these stations are working together, ARD means "Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Rundfunkanstalten Deutschlands" ahm, "working pool of the broadcasting companies of Germany".
And if a show is over they switched to an other station, and that meant often a break an intermission.
Normally you had a sign picture on the screen, "PAUSE", ok, time to go to make yourself fresh, he he he...
Then they showed to audience little pictures, films, nothing exciting, just a film.
Today: modern technics, digital..., there's no need for an intermission

On Youtube, there are some examples, and I give to you the links.

intermission of the NDR

You will watch, through the §$%#*+ WDR sign the "Emperors Train" a hundred year old monorail train, Emperor Wilhelm II. did used it once at a visit. This little film is maybe from the late 70's or early 80's

No intermission
This one

1967
ARD colour TV was new, everything was black and white, and if a colour show or movie started everyone had to know "FARBE!"
Maybe no one didn't noticed it otherwise.

That first guy in your last post reminds me of Stelarc. He does demostrations very similar to that "estim-face" type thing.

I'm having a look at the first item you listed, those German TV station breaks. Wow! I find it hard to believe that they had to put in filler programs while they changed stations - it sounds like a very complicated way of doing things.
It also reminds me of these. For some reason, test patterns always used to... freak me out, a little.
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

Changing stations, the good old times of analogue TV, these intermissions are gone

Interested in german TV? (No, I don't think so)
ARD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARD_(broadcaster)
This link doesn't work because of THIS sign ) - it will not be read, you must put it manual by hand into the address line, or you must search for ARD.
I really want to know why links sometimes aren't be read correctly?

The treadmill goes on the street.
Simple running, bah, that does everybody!

A german webpage
http://www.spreeblick.com/2008/11/12/di ... -der-90er/
It shows some german pop, and some not german pop, the worsest, of the nineties. (mostly german)
I don't translate the german text, it would only influence your opinion.
some of them are still popular here, some other... who the hell are they?
Ahm, some clips are not as bad as they are described.
(Hey what do I write? You can't read german!)

Allright, two examples of the worsest.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL_Dkly0CBM
"Dolls United", gone and away. - One hit, that it was
They used the main theme of a childrens TV classic, a marionette theater, but before you think: "hey, looks like the german version of thunderbirds"
NO! The metallic outfit is only for the clip, the TV series was "Jim Knopf" based on a book by Michael Ende (yes, the same who creates "The Neverending Story)

It's Cool Man
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yWTQlM1KO8
Not german, Switzerland.
There was once a commercial, swiss chocolate - the violett chocolate bar, and they needed an old man like Heidis grandpa.
This guy, Peter Steiner, was nearly ninety years old and the spot became cult.
"Clever" as some producers call themself, they made a music clip with this old man, and so he traveled from disco to disco, really!
Meanwhile he died. (Not because of his disco visits)

Enough, - I have to clean our cat trays. (4!)
bye, bye

The old Finnish mark, before Euro. Yes, it was an anti-EU statement.

Well well...
The time will come that Greece and Italy will get their old currency back,
they are nearly, ahm no, not bankrupt, but they have biiiiig problems.
And I think the EU will throw them out of the Euro zone.
Well, if Finland will be also handle the economy much worse like them, you will get back your old finnish mark sooner as you think.
Ahm, good luck!

I like the Euro, because, I wouldn't like to pay 40.- for a DVD!
700.- for a complete set of colour laser printer toner :wink: :mrgreen:

Edit: I mean Deutsche Mark hehehe 1DM ~ 0.50 Euro
Herrje, laser toner is still expensive

What comes next?
Science Fiction *?!

There exist a german SciFi series "Perry Rhodan" since a very long time
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Rhodan
No I don't explain more, read by yourself...
If you had read Perry Rhodan you would recognize several things which you thought it should be originally Babylon 5, or the Borg from Star Trek.
The Psi Corp for example, the concept of higher intelligence like the Vorlon and the Shadows/Schatten which want to lead other civilizations to a higher level.

But that's what I want to presenting you
There were fans and they couldn't be stopped.
They made a fan movie, in the 70's and the 80's and the 90's and...
and it is still not finished, I'm sure it will never be.
Here is the english subtitled trailer.
And what you see is trash, finest trash, and very ambitionous.
Follow to the future that never was.
http://www.zeusfilm.org/Trailer%201%20e ... index.html
Ooops that is bigger than on the webpage - Picture is not in the trailer
but doesn't it look funny with the "wolf"?
