I think the last VHS movie I got was either "Fat Man and Little Boy" (The story of the Manhattan Project) or "Quest for Fire". I got those both around the same time.

Today I got THE GRATEFUL DEAD LIVE ON NEW YEARS EVE 1986 (12/31/85 from Oakland Coliseum Arena)


www.dead.net/show/december-31-1985

It was recorded off analog cable (On USA network)

Excellent concert..... NO COMMERCIALS AND FULL SCREEN!! (I think USA is too greedy these days to air a concert of that length WITH NO SPAM ADS!! (Crap on the screen,etc))


Only thing is THE TAPE RAN OUT (But there was over 2 hrs and what WAS THERE was fabulous 80s grateful dead)

Always trust your instincts

Today I was @ salvation Army and I found Star trek 1-5 (Seperate releases not the newer 6 pak of all star trek movies together)

I have thankfully been able to replace my star trek copies (1-5 (90s releases)) months ago with original releases which are MUCH BETTER! (Nothing digital in the transfer)

Well today I got the box for Star trek 5 as I have the original 1989 tape but I didnt have the original box....

Something told me to HOLD ONTO THAT TAPE I HAD (Not blindly replace it with the brand new copy (Unopened) I got today)

Looking @ the label on the tape I could tell it wasnt exactly the same..... I put it in and it was crap (Like the newer star trek 1-6,recorded the same way)) They got rid of that stuff @ the beggining and the contrast was slighter darker....... I dont know if it was digitally transferred but it certainly wasnt as good as the other copy I found @ salvation army months ago!! (It was soaked,semi wet.. Left outside in the rain) -- I was hopefull I could save it...... I bought it and let it dry until the next day before trying it.........

So the copy I found today was a NEWER 1989 copy (Apparently after they started compromising the star trek movies)

Now the only one I dont have the original of is Star Trek 6 (1991) -- I dunno if its out there,probably not....... (Ill take the first 5 believe me -- MUCH NICER)

Its quite sad but Im glad I listenend to my instincts!!!!

At the local Blobfest today (The Blob was made a few hundred feet from my house) from a street vendor;

Star Wars Trilogy box set in widescreen.
MST3K The Movie.
Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (Goodtimes LP mode).
Gamera Guardian of the Universe.

Maybe we will live long enough to see VHS make the same comeback that vinyl has. There was another vendor who owns vhsps.com (VHS Preservation Society) picking up OOP VHS and xfering them to DVD.

And I met one Christopher Mihm who writes, produces and directs cheezy, original films in the style of the 50's horror and sci-fi. He is from Minnesota and has about 8 titles out there. I bought his DVD of "The Giant Spider"..."Eight creeping crawling legs of sheer terror!" Lots of extras and the audio is in English/Esperanto. Even the DVD case artwork is in the 50's screaming style of horror. If I can pull a few stills, I will post them in "off topic" with my review. Stay tuned.

Stay tuned.
I never knew, that classic movie, was made out East.
I think I have an original copie of it.
Until I got the movie, I haven't seen it, for like 30 years.
I think the people that were there, were more concerned about the small dog, than the people, that were consumed by the blob.

Scored a nice pile of VHS tapes today at the thrift store. Some are still sealed! Luckily, I solved my flagging issue--only some tapes were causing that issue, but I though it was the equipment.
Anyway, here is the list:
Laurel & Hardy-Utopia
The Matrix
A Clockwork Orange
Dial M for Murder
Timecop
Eddie Murphy-Delirious
Deep Blue Sea
Secret Window
Passenger 57
Late Last Night
Reality Bites
Alien (3rd copy)
Wall Street (my favorite movie of all time, 4th copy)
The Haunting
total price= $10.99

You scored some great movies there!
I looked high and low for Delirious. Finally found one about a year ago. The family cook-out skit, still has me cracking up.
