    It was about 1971 and I was in a high school class that I think was called "Visual Arts". Our assignments consisted of writing and producing videos of various types. This was back in the day when a videotape recorder was the size of a large suitcase.

    I remember one of the assignments was to script and produce a video of yourself reciting a poem, and I had fun with that, doing a sort of '50s beatnik scene and me, all dressed in black, sitting on a trash can reciting Lawrence Ferlinghetti's 'Junkman's Obligato'. Another time we had to create a commercial, and I remember doing a takeoff on Artie Johnson's 'Laugh-In' foreign man character, advertising a brand of Polish vodka.

    One of my classmates, who happened to be the School District Superintendent's son, recorded a commercial for a lip balm, and I'll never forget the last line in the commercial was, "It comes in two flavors - seafood green and $#@! pink". We all thought that was pretty funny, including our female teacher, who was pretty cool, but he had to do the commercial again with a slightly different ending. So he recorded it again, but read it exactly the same way the second time; then the screen goes black and you hear him say, "Oh man, I forgot!" Which in a way was even funnier. Then I guess our teacher forgot about it.

    Later a group of school officials, including our classmate's Superintendent dad, came to the "studio" - yeah, we had a real studio - during a school open house, and in addition to watching us film some things, the teacher played some of the tapes we'd made earlier. You can probably figure out the rest of the story yourselves.

    I remember being shown a bright baby blue house like that in VA. Inside and out. I told the agent that I was not going to get out of the car if he showed me another one like that. Next house he brought us to was puke green and sure enough we get inside and it was puke green inside.

    We were polite and looked at the other 2 he had lined up and said; Thank you but we are going to try another agent.

    There's always one or two in every town. That's what's lost with HOA's and Articles. The podunk area I grew up in you'd drive the country roads and BAM!! it'd hit you - some way out color. Because they liked it or someone gave them the paint or it was primer and they hadn't finished it...

    Because you cleverly deduced that real estate agents are responsible for people painting houses in unusual colors.
    Actually if the cost of repainting the house plus a discounted price for the house is less than the market value, it could be a bargain.

    MY grandmother had a long time neighbor and close friend that had pastel colored appliances. I thought they were so cool looking. My daughter is excited about the new Barbie movie. She has told me all the minutia about it.....WHen I taught PE and played music on Friday my gals loved the old Barbie song. One told me it was bad as her mom had informed her. They loved to jump rope to the song......
