Breaking News: The perpetrator of this currently-defunct blog, one John Glenn Taylor, has recently been spotted in Oregon. He is operating under the alias Bon Bock (bahn bahk) and was last sighted playing hashtag games on Twitter. Subject has two arms, so he should be considered "armed." However, he poses no danger, so approach with a complete lack of caution.

Fred and Barney Sell Cereal!

Duke University Libraries is home to AdViews, a humongous archive of vintage commercials. When AdViews first made an online presence, the commercials were only available for viewing on iTunes. The collection is now also available for viewing here at the Prelinger Archive. Sites like YouTube have made lots of vintage commercials available, but I am impressed by the high quality of the AdViews spots. Here is a Post Pebbles cereal ad from the 1970's.
