Cool DVD, VHS & Betamax heaven

As they say if you live long enough you get to see everything, and maybe collect everything. Remember the line from comedian George Carlin about a house just being a container with a lid for your stuff? Anyway, which unique or particularly loved items do you have? Charlie Sheen was winning in The Wraith, lol.

The Wraith

The Gumball Rally

Seven Nights In Japan

I heard of someone that made a coffee table out of an '80s metric TRX wheel.

In the 1983 movie Nightmares there's one story where Emilio Estevez plays an obsessed gamer that gets trapped in his fave videogame. Don't think it has ever been released on DVD.

Thanks unfortunatly I had to change it due to a request from the artist the current one is not quite as good. When I was in primary school I got the nickname of melmac due to my love for the show and my laugh being like Alfs. When I needed a nick for Usenet/ICQ in the mid 90s it popped into my head and I've been using it ever since, there is still a lot of love out there for the show as I get comments on it all the time.

My brother had one of those. He still does and says it's the best thing ever.

I wonder about him, sometimes.

I still use 3.5" floppies -- plenty of room for text files and spreadsheets. And they're a pain in the butt for someone looking for unauthorized access.

I still use audio cassettes -- the quickest way to record audio "on the fly." I use them for audio note-taking, not "hi-fi" applications.

I have a couple of minidisc recorders -- I'd still be using them if Sony hadn't designed them to be intentionally frustrating.

We used our video recorder (VHS, not Betamax) just last week -- my daughter was nostalgic for some old videos.
