This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.
The Emmy Award derives its name from the Immy–a slang term for the image orthicon, a tube that was used in television cameras until the 1960s.
Steve Martin honed his talent for crafting balloon animals, a staple of his early stand-up act, while working at Disneyland’s Main Street Magic Shop in the early 1960s.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
I remember Steve Martin and balloons in his stand up.
