Done With VHS

I wanted to watch one of the movies I had on VHS the other night. It turns out my VCR I had since I was like 14 had died. I’m not 100% sure it was the VCR but it’s not like I can go buy a new one.

In light of this I have decided my VHS days are over. I have quite a few movies on VHS I have to rebuy on DVD. I hate that. One of the reasons I don’t want to buy a blu ray player. It’s pretty not cool that we have to keep buying the same movie over and over because they switch formats. I’m glad one format won in the blu ray vs HD war.

Anyway, here’s a list of all the movies I had on VHS. I’ll probably try to sell all of them for like $20 on craigslist or something this next week.

  • Star Wars Trilogy (originals, episodes 4-6)
  • Star Wars Trilogy (digitally remastered, special edition, episodes 4-6)
  • Planet Of The Apes (old, all movies, movies 1-5)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (old, all movies, movies 1-3)
  • Indiana Jones, Raiders Of The Lost Ark
  • Indiana Jones, The Last Crusade
  • Isn’t She Great
  • Niles Loves Daphne (a tape I made with all the great moments of Frasier and Niles & Daphne)
  • mini tape to VHS adapter (for my old camcorder)
  • a head cleaner (LOL, remember those?)
  • Not Another Teen Movie
  • Drowning Mona (the movie I wanted to watch)
  • Jurassic Park
  • Fatal Attraction
  • Ordinary Decent Criminal
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Big Business
  • Clue (already bought DVD)
  • Bad Company
  • Dick
  • Mr. Holland’s Opus
  • Fried Green Tomatoes
  • 9 To 5
  • Driving Miss Daisy
  • The X Files (movie, first one)
  • South Park Bigger, Longer, & Uncut
  • Junior
  • What Lies Beneath
  • Presumed Innocent
  • Austin Powers (first one)
  • X Men (first one)
  • Last Action Hero
  • The Sting
  • Grumpy Old Men (first one)

Ahh, VHS. You were so good to me. I don’t have any way to record shows now… not like I have done it in years. On Demand has covered me in that department. We don’t have TiVo or DVR or whatever. But, I guess I won’t miss you.
