Holy crap RIP

I also really liked Remote Control. Kari shows up in random movies sometimes, which always amuses me.

Did you have Swatch Guards for it? I sure did...but one was lame, you needed a couple, so you could braid them.

But of course! You could not wear a Swatch without the Swatch guard otherwise the kids in school would make fun of you!

I had about five different Swatches in the 80's and 90's, but this Salvador Dali-esque one was definitely my favorite:

That is a nice one. I can't find a picture of mine.

I am looking at their website and I may have to revise my childhood and look at a new Swatch watch.

*sorry for derailing the thread*

My Jelly Fish Swatch! O, thou didst bestow upon me a lofty assurance that I was, indeed, thy shit and I didst truly love thee.

(I have no idea why I was channelling (poorly!) Shakespeare there. Must be the high school English memories brought on by my Swatch reminiscing. )

/real end of thread derail

I remember Remote Control, we used to watch it all the time. I wanted one of those cool recliner chairs on wheels that they had on that show! Does anyone happen to have any details about his cause of death? RIP Ken Ober.

Last I'd heard, Carek, he'd complained of "headache and flu-like syptoms" earlier in the weekend. I don't think there's been an official announcement, though.

Thanks. I wonder if it could have been related to that nasty H1N1 flu virus? Nasty bugs making their way around the globe.
