I stumbled across this on the interwebs.  Man, this brings back some memories.  Back in the day when I was a kid, I remember sneaking to the living room after my parents went to bed and watching TV until they stopped broadcasting.  Yes, back then they would stop broadcasting and call it a night.  This was the network’s sign off.

Anyway, the last thing they would show is the little video and poem called High Flight.  I didn’t get why they would show it at the time, but I knew as soons as that jet got airborne it was time to go back to bed.  Anyway, brings back some memories.

I don’t know what the Dr. Phil crap is at the end of the video.  But I don’t remember the good doctor being around those days. :)

    Wow… what a cool blast from the past! You’re lucky… my room was too close to my parents’ room, and they slept too lightly for me to get up and watch TV. I had to resort to reading books in bed.

  • I can’t see the video!!! Nevertheless, I had cable. You don’t even want to know what I watched late at night. >:-)

  • Instead of burning a guy at the stake, what about burning him at the STILTS? It probably lasts longer, plus it moves around.
