The kitchen of the future

This is a Google Video I found this morning from a 1967 movie called "1999 AD." It's a look into what 1967 thought 1999 might hold. Hilarious! This is also the first time I've ever tried to embed a video in this blog. If it doesn't work, try This Link. HTML is fun kids, try it some time.

Anyhow, I'm old enough to remember the Brave New World-like predictions about what life would be like in the year 2000. I remember thinking that 2000 was so far in the future that anything was possible. I think a lot of people felt that way. All of those forward thinkers did get some of details close if not necessarily right. But one thing all of them missed was how much we'd have to work to pay for all of this life-enhancing stuff. I guess I'm present to both; the future and working a lot, because it's a Sunday afternoon and I'm working on actual kitchens of the future.

I've getting e-mail blitzed with new stuff and ideas for homes all week and I'll start sorting through it and posting a lot of it here in the next week or so, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, the movie 1999 AD is available through a website called AV Geeks. Man, you gotta love 'em for the name alone. Sniff around on that site --all of the old, ridiculous films and filmstrips from High School Health calss are available. I'm actually glad someone saved them.
