The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Nowadays

Earlier this week, a friend of mine sent me an email that is floating around on the internet talking about the youth today having it so easy. For instance, when I was in college, I spent endless hours in front of a typewriter completing assignments. Today, we have laptop computers that students can take to class or even the library. Did I just say library? How many students spend that much time in the library like I did? Believe it or not, there was a time when the internet did not exist!

Remember “The Brady Bunch” episode when Greg was taking sideline pictures of his football team? Afterwards, he developed the pictures on his own in a dark room that he set up in the family bathroom. Nowadays, cameras are digital. The pictures are uploaded from the camera on a computer and then printed out. Do they even sell film any more? Remember the flash cube?

On the subject of photography, Greg completed a school project filming his family depicting the trials and tribulations of the early pilgrims settling into their new homeland. Greg used a movie camera. For sound, he used a tape recorder. Nowadays, video cameras come with sound. Most video cameras are designed with small TV screens so you can view what you are actually recording. You no longer have to break an eye lash straining to see through the camera lenses.

The Brady kids used to talk about going to the pizza parlor. Do pizza parlors even exist any more? Who actually goes out for pizza? I heard a young person recently say that the only way to get pizza is to order it over the telephone.

I remember only having access to five TV stations on a black and white set. Do they even make black and white televisions any more? Nowadays, most youths think nothing is on TV unless you have cable or satellite with at least 200 stations.

Nowadays the youth have it easier – and Greg Brady has a blog!?!
