You Know You Watched Square One a lot as a Kid When... Sep. 4th, 2004 @ 08:52 pm
...the Fibonacci Sequence comes up in a seminar (on quasicrystals). The first thing that popped to my mind was that parrot saying "1, 1, 2, 3, 5... Eureka!" :)

Oh, by the way, I'm Rebecca. I'm a first year chemistry grad student. One of my classes is called "Mathematical Methods for Physical Sciences." Right now, I am learning about complex calculus. :) (Or :(, since I, like the other chemistry people, am fairly confused.)

Question: If you were to make a new and modernized version of Square One TV what kind of skits and music videos would you include? (For example, would you spoof the Simpsons or Six Feet Under? Would you use mathman or make a new video game? If Mathnet returned, would it still be based on Dragnet or would one of the newer TV shows, like CSI take its place?)

Square One Swag! Jul. 22nd, 2004 @ 02:31 pm
I apologize for having not posted in so long. I guess I should try tending to the commmunity I created, huh? :@ D

Anyway, I thought this would be an interesting opportunity to ask another fun question:

Has anyone in this community, or perhaps someone you know, ever found any interesting Square One TV/Mathnet merchandise out there? Say, in a collector's shop, used bookstore, or an online auction?

Or maybe someone you know appeared on the show and won a prize? Share your story, and if you're looking to buy or sell anything, be sure and let everyone know! (I for one try to buy those rare goodies out there if and when I can find them, such as some of the old 3-2-1 Contact magazines had Square One features in them for awhile.)

Happy sharing! ^_^

Mathman =D Apr. 28th, 2004 @ 10:48 am
Howdy everyone. thought I would join up here since I run a (or the) Mathman Archive :)
I know there are more episodes of him than are showing but can't find any and can't afford cable :/. That aside I'm trying to work on making a Glitch skin for Warcraft III, using sound clips I've captured from the movies :). Well thats enough about me, now does anyone have a glitch LJ Icon?

Things Look Swell, Things Look Great... Apr. 14th, 2004 @ 04:48 pm
If anyone out there is in or near New York City, here's something fun you might be interested in that's happening next week; Toni DiBuono (aka Pat Tuesday) is starring in a new musical titled The Two Svengalis. It's a limited engagement as of now, but I dare say if it goes over well, they'll do more shows.

More about Svengalis Here!

If you do go (unfortunately I think it's age 21 and up only...), let us know how it is! Toni's a great singer, and judging by the previews I've heard, this should be a good one! :@ )

If you can't make it, and/or would like to hear the previews, check here: Official Svengalis Page. A CD "Cast Album" will also be appearing later this Summer.

Just doing my part to promote the show. ;@ )

And if anyone else out there has had any sightings of other SQTV/Mathnet Actors (especially on stage), feel free to post about them here as well!

Hey everyone, I just joined this community -- the other day I was struck by massive amounts of nostalgia for Square One -- I spent hours downloading Mathman, Dirk Niblick and of course Mathnet clips.

Does anyone know if there are any plans for a Square One DVD set?

Since quite a few of you have joined up, but most haven't posted anything yet (and what fun is a dead community, right?), I thought I'd open up the opportunity for people to speak up. So, here's some questions you can answer just for fun! Feel free to answer them all, or just a few. Anything goes! ;@ )

How old were you when you first discovered Square One TV? (Point of reference: The show originally debuted in 1987.)

Did you watch SQTV and/or Mathnet in School? After School? Were you even still in School when it aired? (Well, some adults did actually watch it...)

What was your favourite skit from the show? (Can be a skit, mini game show, music video, etc.)

Which Mathnet Case was your favourite?

Who was your favourite actor on the show? (Can also be a specific character if you can't think of the actor's name.)

Anything else to add or share? Go for it! :@ )
» Announcing the Square One Recognition Drive!
As posted to the Yahoo! Group by Brian Hilley (who runs the SQTV Fansite):

Well timed site advertising

Happy New Year, folks... I'm pleased to announce that it's time to share our desire for more Square One TV with the world... the "Square One Recognition Drive" is now going on at SquareOneTV.org! We're gonna get creative and mail cool stuff to Sesame Workshop. We won't let them forget about Square One TV. We're also gonna spread word about the show to people who may have forgotten it. So come on and help!

I think Brian has a lofty task ahead of him with this plan, but why not give it a go, right? If you are interested in seeing more Square One (or rather, having the archived material re-released for public viewing), stop by the site and see what this entails. At the very least, we'd like to see some high-quality material become available for purchase (since I, along with many others, own countless VHS tapes that have since given way to wear and tear).

If this sounds like the project for you, do check the site out and have your say! Thanks! :@ )
» Hello Again!
Just wanted to post through and say hello and Happy Holidays! I realize not much is going on, although with people off from their studies and such for the Holidays, I'm sure more people will come by. :@ )

In case you're ever looking for anything related to Square One or Mathnet, such as books and/or videos, a great place to get started is over at Amazon.com. Although the books and videos are out of print (not currently stocked through Amazon directly), there are people selling used copies on there. You can't go wrong, in my opinion! Just a good way to get started if you're desperate.

Also, if you have a few dollars to your name, you might consider purchasing the "official" videos for sale at GPN Educational Media. They are geared towards classroom use, but I've bought and recommend them. They only have a small selection of stuff, but it's better than nothing, right?

You may also want to try eBay every once in awhile; there are occasionally auctions for stuff on there. Although if it's rare enough, you will have to fight me to win. -_^

Anyway, that's about it. Just wanted to share all that with the community and say hello!

May the Math be with You!
