So the other night I did something I hadn’t done in years. I recorded a TV show to watch later… on my VHS recorder. Yup, the 15 year old TV with built in VHS player included was given to me as a gift for my 13th birthday and has survived a move cross country, four years of college, and now lives in my kitchen. I honestly don’t recall when or why I stopped using it but I did. And now its back.
I know DVR is better but really, how many hours of television shows does one really need to watch? Zero. So my 6 hour VHS tapes should be plenty.
I admitted this to friends on Facebook and got asked if I wanted to listen to some of their awesome mix cassettes. Yes!
If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it or better yet don’t upgrade. I dare you.
