With the long Halloween nearly over it’s time to commemorate the day the way we commemorate every great holiday, with a nod to one of the most under-appreciated shows of its time – neigh, of any time – The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Like the show did with New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day (and, as we’ll see in just a few short days, Daylight Savings), Pete & Pete refused to let a great holiday pass by without putting their very specific mark on the event. We proudly present, once again, “Halloweenie.”
See you 3am Sunday.
Pick me up
We dunno, we were kind of always under the impression he was a bit of a loose cannon.

Well, actually, all that needs to be said about Steve Jobs has already been said, both good and bad. So, instead, we thought we’d take this opportunity to share our earliest memory of Mac, what made us first want a Mac (a wish that took over ten years to come true, and then another five to be a proud owner of a brand new model): the 1995 sitcommerical, “The Martinettis Bring Home a Computer.” We recall watching this infomercial-scripted comedy-hybrid on Saturday mornings with the same rapt attention we offered Muppet Babies and Saved by the Bell. Much like the innovative products Jobs would bring to the world several years later upon his return to Apple, this “show” was pretty much the first of its kind. Starring Chauncey Leopardi, better known as Michael “Squints” Palledorous, it remains a symbol of the that quintessential visionary Apple spirit, seen before, during, and hopefully after Jobs.
(if you’re curious, our first computer was Compaq Presario with Windows 95 and we thought it was the most amazing thing ever ever).
