Recently, James made a purchase off of eBay. It's a VHS tape from 1988 starring "Marlo Thomas & friends", including 10-year-old me donning pink Hong Kong issue glasses (thanks Dr. Li!) and a safari hat. The copy on the box sums it up this way: "An Emmy Award-Winning Special! Russian and American kids come together with talk, laughter and songs!" However, the customer reviews on Amazon paint quite a different picture, exclaiming, "This video is a total piece of crap... Worst video I've seen... I have not been this disappointed in a LONG time. Waste of film!!!!!" True art is always polarizing?

You know I tried to buy a copy of this tape off Amazon ages ago, but I never got it, even after I ordered it (with confirmation email and everything!)

We watched it the other day, and I definitely come down on the side of the exclamation points. Marlo Thomas' stylin eighties fashion alone...
