I was still buying VHS tapes up until about 2014 or so (when I finally got tired of being burned on chewed up or snowy used tapes)-- they were 5 for a dollar at the thrift stores, and you could get some cool oddities, and a lot of the Hollywood stuff I would never have rented for $2 back in the 90’s. Even recently I saw a Kieslowski complete Dekalog box set on VHS for cheap and briefly thought about buying it, even though I don’t even have a player anymore.

You have to load it from a cassette tape, I’m afraid.



That was amazing. The “just like that” moment had me in tears. A perfect “IoT is the same thing but worse” realization that we’ve all had with appliances that didn’t need improving.

Also Aubrey Plaza :heart_eyes:


This is a religion I could get behind.
