It occurred to me that there have been many blog posts of serious import lately. Perhaps it’s because there’s lots of stuff going on in the World, and in my life.
To remedy this, I bring you a link which is both humorous and a little depressing. (Okay – I’m not perfect at this!)
“Imagine a world where we never again hear the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 machine. Imagine generations of children unacquainted with the chattering of angels lodged deep within the recesses of an old cathode ray tube TV. And when the entire world has adopted devices with sleek, silent touch interfaces, where will we turn for the sound of fingers striking QWERTY keypads? Tell me that. And tell me: Who will play my GameBoy when I’m gone?”
These questions led Brendan Chilcutt to embark on a mission to collect and preserve these sounds in The Museum of Endangered Sounds.
Enjoy, and reminisce!
