So what am I supposed to do with my stash of 200+ tapes?
I love vhs. I made a thread ages ago about it being better than dvds and everyone made fun of me :(
magnetic tape produces such bad quality sound
guitars and pianos sound so good recorded on tape. all sort of brilliant. Listen to daniel johnston.
and as far as video goes, I like it. I'm sure if you wanted to get all psuedy you could write an essay on why tape is a more "authentic" format for watching films than a dvd cos it reflects the continuity of the directors thought process whereas with dvds it's too easy to skip scenes and all that junk. And I just don't like them.
I ain't falling for that bullshit. No siree.
tape was the first medium which normal people could use to make their own stuff and distribute it. It's got a nice warm sort of fuzziness to it that I like, and plus it gave us you've been framed and this show
and it's not as if youtube videos are any better. In fact they're horrid, charmless, and encourage terrible people to do terrible things.
were the first engines used to power automobiles
they have a nice sort of warm fuzzy sound when they BURN OIL
The rest - rubbish.
