I have roughly 13,000 VCRs, in a warehouse full of racks.  I'm tying them together into a chronosyncretic esthetonic ion relay network, which takes over 5000 miles of cable.  I'm still finishing up the power supply for this--it involves a surreptitious dam on a river whose name I'm afraid I can't mention--and my partner, Indiana Bill, has been working the ebay market for copies of tape 1 of season 3 of The Golden Girls.  It should be about three months or so when we can finally pop the last tape into the last VCR, turn the whole thing on, and then...


Put your affairs in order, is my advice.

THere's a VHS/DVD player sitting in a box in my basement somewhere. We still have it because my wife refuses to part with her childhood collection of Disney tapes that she doesn't watch.

I've still got one, but only because Radio Shack refused to transfer all my 80s homemade porn to DVD.

We stayed at a vacation property last year and they had a VCR and a few tapes in one of the bedrooms.  I felt like a damned archaeologist.
