I got the movie Basic Instinct Today (1992)

Luckily its the original release of this movie as the one in 1996 was recorded IN SLP (EP) MODE!! (Probably horrible quality) The one I have is in SP mode...

I looked it up on amazon and that copy was recorded IN EP!! (YUK!!)

I've never heard of a production movie released in SLP. That's really strange.

EP can look pretty good. Though it is highly dependent on tape quality, recorder quality, player quality, and the degree to which the calibration of player and recorder agree....

I still time shift with my VCR today .I'm not fond of using my DVD recorders because I dont trust them and I dont need anymore coasters or mini frisbees from it.

Thank goodness that Walmart still carries blank VHS tapes.BJ's stop stocking them a year ago.

For pre-recorded tapes.I cant recall what was my last purchase.I got dozens given to me and purchased used ones at the fleamarket over the years.

For new VCR's s .It was back in 1998.I picked up a tons of used working VCR's at the fleamarket.

Also VCR's that were given to me plus ones I found in the trash and at the curb.

Since I was in repairing them I probably have 200 plus here in my garage,basement and shed just for parts.

I dread the day when the stores stop carrying VHS tapes and I got to use the DVD recorders.

I'm glad that some of the TV nets or places that have complete episodes of TV shows that I can watch online.

I got THE HOWDY DOODY SHOW today @ salvation army

There are 4 episodes on this tape! -- When I saw yesterday it was put on the tape in 2000,i didnt wanna get it as I didnt know if they just put the digital master of it on the tape (GARBAGE) and I dont want that,i can see enough of that compromised analog stuff on cable TV or DirecTV,when i get VHS i want the nicest analog quality!!

Today When I was @ salvation army,i figured i would give it a try since It wasnt put on by one of the big companies that might do that... It was put on by NBC HOME VIDEO and its georgeous!

The Original 35mm master WAS USED!!!!!!!!! -- IT EVEN HAS THE ORIGINAL NBC TONES @ THE END OF THE SHOW!! (Ya know it goes bong,bong,bong...... While displaying NBC on screen)

I havent ever seen 1 episode of this show before today......I watched 2 so far

Who knows when I'll be able to watch mine, I still haven't serviced any of my VCRs. My tape collection is still quite small.

A few nights ago my son and I bought the movies ' GONE WITH WIND ' and ' SON OF FLUBBER '. Son of Flubber was never opened. Gone with Wind is two tape boxed set with a booklet. Plan is to copy them to DVD for my wife.
