Something original every month.

Just because.

October 2018

Welcome back one and all.

Every month, I like to give something away. Typically, it will be an item that has been out of circulation for a while, and more often than not, it is an item that was created, never used and archived. Sometimes I just like to create something unique for all of you, simply for the joy of it.

This month’s free download is called Outtasite History: October Julia Child. It details something that used to be solely the domain of foreign films on the art house circuit that we all take for granted now: closed captioning for the hearing impaired. Interestingly, it is also my very first piece to deal directly with persons of a specific disability: those who are deaf and hard of hearing.

The subject of the piece is the cooking show classic The French Chef, hosted by Julia Child. In the fall of 1971, it became the very first U.S. program to be captioned for deaf and hearing impaired persons.

This may be a semi-regular feature on this site, for future reference.
