Retail historians, Peter Blackbird and Brian Florence decided to take Pete's hobby and make it visible to the Internet.
Fascinated by the ever-changing face of retail, Pete has researched and learned as much as he could about the many facets of the retail industry. Having himself worked for Hills department stores during their transition into Ames, along with Brian who worked at a Caldor, as well as other various retail-oriented contacts, they find themselves captivated by the current trends in the retail industry, and have seen first-hand the demise of many of these great giants of retail.
Thanks to the power of the internet, we have been able to compile information from people all over the web, contributing invaluable information to our cause!

The Quirky Japan Homepage
Are you tired of shrines and temples, reconstructed ferro-concrete castles and tea ceremonies? Do you like to get off the beaten track? Would you like to meet Japanese people who do not meet the conformist stereotype? Japan, behind the conservative grey suits and formal bows, is a country quirkier than you can ever imagine. The Quirky Japan Homepage provides information about oddities such as the The Meguro Parasitalogical Museum, the Thousand Person Bathtub, love hotels, temple lodging, and the Yakiimo man (the ice cream man's evil twin).
Strange Things from Japan
This website documents all kinds of weird products, services, or other items from Japan. I adore the Japanese people - But they are very strange in many ways. I would like to see this website understood as a celebration of their strange but enjoyable culture.

Penthouse 27B, Stamford Marque, Sydney, Australia — VizzVox
VizzVox - Affordable and rapid video ad creation
IF you're shopping for a new home, it's easy to take a virtual stroll through the ranch house at 640 Hobart Avenue, San Mateo, Calif., asking price $1,049,000. The house has its own Web site, complete with a soundtrack (www.640hobart.com). Click on it and a real estate agent welcomes you in the voiceover, as crisp digital photographs of the sunny rooms flow past on the screen, with each photo neatly dovetailed to the narration.
The commercial may make you want to move in instantly. But, too bad, that house is sold. Joanne Norris, an agent at Alain Pinel Realtors in Burlingame, Calif., who created and narrated the commercial, found a buyer within a week of advertising it that way. She sold another house, too, within a few days of posting a Web commercial, despite an overall slowdown in the local housing market.
To make the commercials, Mrs. Norris used a new Web-based service, VizzVox (www.vizzvox.com). For $149 a year, VizzVox offers a package that includes domain name registration for the property, hosting of the commercial on the Web site for a year, and the use of the Web-based software that lets real estate agents create the presentation.
Tsukuba's Original English Newsletter | Alien Times, Tsukuba, Ibaraki JAPAN
In Japan, all foreign residents have to register at the local city hall and carry an "alien registration card" at all times. We used to be referred to as "aliens" (rather than foreigners) on a regular basis, but thankfully, that has dropped off in recent years.
This newsletter was started before there were many foreign people living in Japan. Tsukuba now has over 7000 foreign residents. (That's a lot for a Japanese city, by the way.) While some people find the name "Alien Times" to be a bit strange, especially now that we are not referred to as aliens very much anymore, we decided to keep the title of the newsletter as it was in 1987 so that we remember how it all started. (Besides, we went out and got the alientimes.org domain and everything!)
Tsukuba is a city of 200,000 people, with access to many kinds of foreign foods and books and a schedule full of international conferences and events -- but it wasn't always that way. The pages of Alien Times serve to remind us of the history of our city: where we have been and where we are headed. We offer a unique -- if not exactly alien -- perspective on what it is like to live in Tsukuba's ever-changing landscape.
Whether you are planning to come to Tsukuba, you already live here, or your sojourn in our fair city has come to an end, you are sure to find some interesting and informative articles in every issue.

iMovie ’08 on G4?
As in angry? Let me guess...
You watched Fearless Leader's (Steve Jobs', that is) announcements on Tuesday. As soon as it was over, you hurried on over to Apple's web site to check out the iLife '08 demonstration video.
You had to have it. So you ran right out and added $80 to your already huge credit card debt in order to keep Apple in business.
Of course, you didn't even consider looking at the system requirements, now did you? Well, did you?
After all, your Mac is only 2 years old, right? Apple wouldn't (couldn't?) release software that would render your G4 based Powerbook, Mac Mini, or iBook obsolete.
Or could they?
Well they did.
Boy that sucks.
I know. From personal experience.
So I did something about it.http://www.teksanity.com/iMovie/iMovie_08_on_G4/Intro.html
