385 – Movie Night

385 – Movie Night

Nothing says “movie night” like crappy tracking on your VCR.

… nothing says you’re old like owning a working VCR…

‘Nuff said, it’s time for Lion King.

    It’s only a VCR if it can actually…Record. One of my oldest memories is my parents getting me my own player (at 3 years old) because they were worried about me breaking their VCR. My dad had one of those old video cameras where he carried that VCR on his hip and the bit with the lens up on his shoulder to record, and if one broke the other was useless.

    At first I thought that was a skinny necked person fiddling with the vcr

  3. The One Guy says:

    And to think, I felt so technologically advanced when my family first got a DVD player.

    Lion King FTW!

    BETA !!!……
    Have anyone else even seen a Four-track tape. (Yes, actually existed)

  6. drmike says:

    Four track tapes are still around. The Library of Congress uses them for their blind readers. (My father was a big user.)

    Of course knowing what a VCR is just makes Jenny sound like an older woman. :)

    Bam! Just read through the entire archives in 4-8 hours i think? I lost count, anyway to my favorites comics now!

    Ahh, the good old days of VCRs…

    Just had an impromptu movie night in the DCC the other day. Those classroom projectors are awesome.

  9. drmike says:

    And I thought you were going to do a follow up to Lethal Weapons. :)

    We still have VHS tapes at my house. We have a massive collection of them

  11. Lukkai says:

    Still got some tapes around here as well.

    Jewels like “Ten little Gallforces”. Don’t know if that even ever made it on DVD.

  12. Raven says:

    Um yeah worst part is i can happily say that I not only know what a Beta player is but i actually have a working one and the entire starwars trilogy on Beta as well… soooo yeah…go me.

  13. FreeFlier says:

    So, have any of you young’uns ever seen a laserdisc?

    Think of a DVD a foot across, only without the resolution.

    It was a real improvement over Beta or VHS, though . . . similar to 1-1/2 inch reel-to-reel VTR quality, though the 2 inch RTR VTR beat it. 2-inch? That’s what the networks recorded their shows on after the creation of the video recorder. (I worked at the campus TV station.)
