I know this video is old (in internet-time), but it reminded me of how there are some really ingenious ideas floating around out there to motivate people to move a bit more. Having spent nearly two years creating and analyzing health and fitness initiatives for America's youth (for a $4 billion health company), I'm wondering why creative ideas like this, aren't implemented all over the world?
I applaud Volkswagen, an automobile company, for supporting a program "dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better." For big smiles, check out The Fun Theory for more inspirational ways to make positive change, fun!
About 15 years ago, a young cousin ran into our room and described how he had seen a television where you had to get up and turn a knob to turn the channel. He was freaking out describing the old monster. And I felt old. Then.
Watching the video above, I feel ancient. And why shouldn't I? At 39, nearly 40, when I was the age of the kids in the video, I thought 40 was old!
Technology moves fast, however coupled with being a new parent, everything now seems to move at warp speed! With a husband who works in video games, a career in new media, and a community rooted in technology across all formats, it's going to be funny to see what Lulu thinks of our relics in the years to come (as of course, everything tech will probably be implanted on her person in the future)!
I want to do this experiment with all the kids I know today. It would be great to show them copies of Star Wars on Betamax, VHS, Super VHS, and Laserdisc too (we have them all, somewhere)! Anyone local want to help me update this experiment?!

HAMMER Presents Fantômas Centenaire Billy Wilder Theater Thursday, January 13, 7pm
Co-presented by the Consulat General de France
The archfiend Fantômas was created by Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre in early 1911. The villain, in top hat and black mask, strode across the rooftops of Paris with a dagger in one hand, casting his murderous shadow over the city. Born via pulpy paperbacks, he quickly attracted high culture admirers. The Society of the Friends of Fantômas included Cocteau, Max Jacob, Picasso, Apollinaire, and Colette. Magritte and Juan Gris painted him; Kurt Weill composed music for him. In celebration of his 100th birthday, we will screen Louis Feuillade’s haunting, essential silent film Le Mort Qui Tue (1913) with live accompaniment by James Fearnley (The Pogues), followed by a discussion with Fantômas scholar Robin Walz, French director Jean-Pierre Gorin, Los Angeles Times and NPR film critic Kenneth Turan and moderated by writer Howard Rodman and a birthday party in the courtyard with music by Pink Frankenstein (from Bardot A Go Go!).
