    Dudes!!! (My poor Charles Band impersonation).

    My HD Projector has shit the bed so I decided to hold off on getting it fixed to see if the higher rez ones come down in price, if not I will get it fixed but in the meantime I came into posession of an old school cabinet style RCA floor model tv that is near virgin, never has had cable or satellite hook to it or any vcrs, dvds, or game systems, the tv has been used strictly to watch Murder She Wrote, Matlock and 60 Minutes and local news.

    So I had the weekend to myself and broke it in with an all night viewing of some of my VHS, rarities etc.
    Here was my playlist...

    Abomination - 1986
    Nightlife - 1989
    Mindkiller - 1987
    Invasion of the Mindbenders - 1987
    Beasties - 1991
    Venus Flytrap
    Buford's Beach Bunnies
    Hot Moves

    I did have surround sound and watching these in the dark on the set up they were meant to be seen on was really great.

    That's awesome. I'd love to have my parents old console TV set up but sadly, it's probably in a garbage dump somewhere.

    Rock on! Those old style RCAs were built to last, which definitely cannot be said for the pieces of shit they've become in the last decade since becoming a Chinese brand.

    I still have more VCRs than I do DVD and blu-ray players. I even have one of those old combo TVs where the VCR is attached at the bottom.
