Welcome to GopherCentral.com

For well over 20 years, GopherCentral.com, called “Shagmail” back in the day, was the place to go for free newsletters. With numerous publications, covering a wide array of topics from humor to household hints,
Gophercentral was a juggernaut. Even after the dot-com bubble burst in the early 2000s, Gophercentral has soldiered on with new publications, an extensive archives covering over 30 of our popular publications, and a new generation of subscribers that not only read, but interact with our editors with questions, comments, and content.

Today, GopherCentral.com is the place for email nostalgia. Its most popular publications are still there, like the clean joke list Clean Laffs, the adult joke list Laff-a-Day, the home-cooking column Daily Recipe, and Bizarre News – all written and published in-house by PulseTV staff, with a core audience of fans who forward their favorite issues around to their friends and still patronize PulseTV.com.

Now GopherCentral.com is starting to grow a social media presence as well. If you have never read a GopherCentral.com eZine they are all free, like they have always been, and the editors are just waiting to say hello. Subscribe Today!

DVDs and Blu-Rays and CDs, Oh, My!

With the streaming age upon us physical media is becoming a thing of the past.

Books, CDs, records, tapes, DVDs, even Blu-Rays are all forms of media that are being abandoned for tablets, smartphones, and other devices.
The convenience of gaining access to, purchasing, and enjoy an endless supply of entertainment is quite enticing, but come on, you don’t really own that media…think of it more as a rental. What happens if a server goes down, your account gets hacked, or you can’t gain access to your accounts? You have to re-purchase the media that you had acquired in the past. What a pain!


Now, I do appreciate what streaming and handheld devices do, but physical media is where it’s at! With physical media you always have the desired movie, show, song, or book ever accessible. No buffering. No low battery. No incorrect passwords. You can put on a movie or show, flip open a book, or spin a record and enjoy without having to rely on a paid service to let you enjoy these forms of entertainment.

Now with Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox they have announced that many of the Fox titles are getting put in a vault and will not be available through streaming. WHAT!? Now is the time to stock up on DVDs, Blu-Rays, and CDs before some of your favorites become unavailable for the foreseeable future. Here’s one title that could possibly disappear…

Watch Around the Clock: 24 Hours of TV in Color – DVD + Digital Collection – Relive a Day-In-The-Life from Television’s Golden Age with this 24 Hour Lineup – IN COLOR! – This incredible 4-DVD collection, plus a BONUS holiday disc, features nonstop programming from the Golden Age of Television as if you’ve gone back in time, but this time IN COLOR!

I’m Tired of Hearing, “I’m Too Old.”

I’m almost 58 and well, I embrace it!

Aging isn’t a dirty word, it is something to be celebrated.

Go “Team Red!

redforwomen

We may be a small family company, but we have a big heart. That is always the case when it comes to supporting members of our team.

Today, being Valentine’s Day, is the perfect day to share this story with you. Maureen, one of our number-crunchers, asked the office to join her in support of “Go Red for Women”.

Go Red for Women” is the American Heart Association’s initiative to increase heart awareness. Heart disease is the number one threat to women and 80% of heart events are preventable. Maureen asked us to wear red to honor those we’ve lost, and to support those who survive, thrive, and inspire, like her daughter Caitlin, who’s been living with heart disease since her diagnosis of long QT at age 16.

As you can see from the photo our hearts go out in support of Maureen and Caitlin. We care about each here no matter what. And that’s what makes PulseTV a great family!

Thanks, “Team Red”!

Let’s Play Ball!

Before the sun set on the summer, PulseTV made sure to enjoy America’s pastime. We made our way to watch the Windy City Thunderbolts take on the Schaumburg Boomers; and Anisa had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. She’s got an arm!

Our time at the ballpark was definitely a Home Run! And The Thunderbolts won 6-1!

PulseTV is 1,000 Strong!

Are you ready for this? PulseTV has recently made a huge milestone with the creation of our 1,000th product video. We can’t believe it either!

One might wonder how we have managed to go from selling VHS and DVDs in catalogs and TV commercials to producing our very own, in-house product videos.

Khalil Ali, Creative Director, Buyer, and Video Editor here at PulseTV, has created a two-part virtual tour of our company’s history.  Click Here for Part 1

Learn about what led us to making our very first video, finding our voice and ultimately why we do it.

From selling videos to making our own, PulseTV has certainly come a long way…
