Straightforward and approachable in its presentation, MOQN shelves a quirky collection of audio and video relics rescued from television’s short-term memory. Some clips are priceless glimpses into dusty old Americana (Buster Keaton shilling for Pure Beer), some seem surreally disturbing (Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble sucking on Winston cigarettes), and a few beg for modern-day deconstruction (commercial footage of Ken and Barbie on their first date). Our only wish is that site proprietor Kevin Gendreau had included the clips’ correlating dates. As it is, this feels less like a museum and more like Grandma’s attic.
