The Museum Of Endangered Sounds
"I launched the site in January of 2012 as a way to preserve the sounds made famous by my favorite old technologies and electronics equipment. For instance, the textured rattle and hum of a VHS tape being sucked into the womb of a 1983 JVC HR-7100 VCR. As you probably know, it’s a wonderfully complex sound, subtle yet unfiltered. But, as streaming playback becomes more common in the US, and as people in developing nations like Canada and the UK get brought up to DVD players, it’s likely that the world will have seen and heard the last of older machines like the HR-7100. And as new products come to market, we stand to lose much more than VCRs.
"Imagine a world where we never again hear the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 machine. Imagine generations of children unacquainted with the chattering of angels lodged deep within the recesses of an old cathode ray tube TV. And when the entire world has adopted devices with sleek, silent touch interfaces, where will we turn for the sound of fingers striking QWERTY keypads? Tell me that. And tell me: Who will play my GameBoy when I’m gone?
"These questions and more led me to the undertaking that is The Museum Of Endangered Sounds…"

Number Munchers!  My God!  Somebody else remembers!
But wait…portable C.D. players are endangered?

I was cleaning the house and stumbled upon these relics.  Nineties life and all that.

Now all you need is an Atarii 800 and Disc Drive.

These went to our I.B.M. P.C.  I think it was already obsolete when we got it ca. 1990.  And, in case you’re wondering, the dog in the photo is Alex.  He was adopted in 1989 by Judy Gerber of Bellmore, New York.

I loved Spaghetti-Os as a kid.  I tried a can a couple years ago and hated it.  It was nothing like I remember.  I bought and cooked another can on impulse recently.  It tastes totally different from the can I had a few years ago and the Spaghetti-Os I remember from childhood.
Has Campbell been tinkering with the Spaghetti-Os recipe over the years, or is my memory just very unreliable?
