.: Get Ready to Blow your Mind.
This TV takes you back to 1979. See rare footage captured from Warner QUBE (thanks to permission from former QUBE writer Jack), edited by Burt Dubrew and host Michael Young, when production for experimental two way television moved here, evolved here, and took off. The start of what kicked off the entire cable industry! See rare footage of Rocky Horror Fans at Graceland Twin Cinema, Wolfman Jack, and Arnold Schwarzenegger when they appeard on the show, and there is footage from the launch of Flippo's Magic Circus when he got QUBEd. Are you ready? (Password for WHS Reunion video: 19792009)

.: From QUBE to MTV
Relive a few memories of Worthington High School, and see what the students are up to now, on MTV. Yes on MTV! The show "Made" did a shoot about a student wanting to learn break dancing, at Thomas and other Central Ohio Locations back in the Spring session and the show (Episode #38) has been airing on MTV (as of late August 2006).
