Archaeology of Pull Tabs

Alex’Sta-Rad Channel Launched!

Alex Morton is definitely a fan! He contacted me some months ago, I think after I had just made the video with Evan. He liked to connect, no, he NEEDED to connect fast and share what he was doing. Starting from a project at his day job at a school, he is rapidly on his …

Meet Evan Jaworski, from Austin Texas

This was really a nice one! I was contacted a few months ago by Evan Jaworski, from Austin, Texas, a 26 year old G.I.S. specialist and…proud owner of a genuine pull tab collection. It is rare that we encounter people who have their own collection, so I asked if he cared for a video interview. …

Ring Pull or Pull Ring?

This week we got an interesting e-mail from Gareth Stevens who informed us that using the correct historical name for pull tabs is actually quite a tricky thing, especially comparing the US with the UK.

See second 44 and on, but the whole item about this 19th century settlement is interesting to watch, of course. Good exercise for my rather rusty French.

Welcome back to hell

Guess who’s back! 😉We returned from a splendid holiday in Austria, slightly less ‘pulltabby’ than last year, and straight back into the mess of the office back home. A true killer for creativity. Time to clean up. Find the video on the patreon page, patron-only for now. but it will become public in a few days

I solved the mystery of these weird things!

I finally solved the mystery of the presence of these weird old fashion T-type pull tabs in my neighbourhood. I already had a sneak’n suspicion, but I didn’t want to indulge in my biases, but when I visited the Turkish (I think) grocery store around the corner, I actually bought a can with a T-IV …
