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.

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

All these VCR's simply prove that there are no poor people. Fox News told me so.

VCRs are great for kids.

1.) Grab the purple tape.
2.) Push it into the VCR.
3.) Watch
4.) If it ends, go to step 2.

Can't do that with a DVR or DVD.

I use my VCR more than my poor DVD player that just gathers dust now. I'm happy I never put money into a blu-ray player that probably would have never gotten used. Streaming definitely wins in every category.

I still have one. It's in a closet gathering dust, but I have it.

I have two VHS, one S-VHS, and an LD player. I haven't used any of them in years, but I still have them.
