MCM Vacation


Puerto Rico - 1963 8mm Reel from Trawin on Vimeo.

OK, it's Friday, you've had a long week, you are already one foot out the door. How bout we start this weekend off right. I stumbled across this found footage of a 1963 vacation in Puerto Rico. It's full of all sorts of great mid century architecture, vaca-wear and beautiful vintage video defects.  The only problem is, no sound. So here is a little game to play.


1. Start playing "Puerto Rico - 1963 8mm Reel". The first 30 seconds are an intro screen.

2. When you get 30 seconds in, hit play on "Full LP: Bossa Nova - New Brazilian Jazz - Lalo Schifrin - 1962 Audio Fidelity"

3. Switch "Puerto Rico - 1963 8mm Reel" to full screen.

4. Sit back and enjoy your own little tropical paradise.

5. Rinse and repeat.


Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
