The Betamax Rundown  The World Sucks Now.

The Story of Barbara (19??) Family vacation in Door Co. Wisconsin. Took a $10 gamble on this at the antique store. The checkout clerk had a comment for the hot wheels my son was getting, but didn't have anything to say about this one. "For Personal and Party Use Only". Hoping this is worth it. #thestoryofbarbara #erotic #vinyl #vintageerotica

I'd pay like $100 for a print of this Livingston family portrait from Storytelling. Seriously, the denim, the bare feet. It's this attention to detail that makes Solondz a champ, despite some questionable films of late. Imagine asking Goodman, @markwebber , Hagerty to all show up for this portrait session. Was this ever released as a press photo? #johngoodman #markwebber #juliehagerty #jonathanosser #noahfleiss #toddsolondz #mikeschank #storytelling #paulgiamatti

Wrapping up #vhseptember with #shelflove and some sadness. My current media storage area allows for about 40% on full display, 30% on the shelves below with doors, and the other 30% in crates in a storage closet. It's not perfect, but it works for a home that also includes a lady and a toddler. Sorted by title, short spine out. Grouped by box type (slip beta, slip VHS, book boxes, clamshells, small hardcase clams, etc.). Google doc spreadsheet with title and label. My collection stands at around 1800 tapes, almost all Betamax. There was a pretty heavy purge in 2015 and one prior to that in like 2008. Everytime I purge I usually just end up getting more afterwards.
I love watching fucking movies. This isn't about showboating or trends. Movies have gotten me through my depressed 20s rotting in my mom's basement, my drowning in debt and booze 30s, and now as I enter my 40s there's a great sense of comfort when I sit down to watch a tape. This is fun, you guys are fun. Someday someone is going to have to throw all your shit away. Enjoy it, and those who tolerate your hoarding, while you can. #betamax #vhs #videocassette #vcr #vhscu #feedyourvcr

The Miss Nude America Contest (1976) This movie man... Obviously the 70s we're a wild time. #vhseptember #treasuredtrash #wizardvideo #dickdrost #nudist #nakedcity #beta #betamax #vhs #feedyourvcr #nudism #jamoutwithyourclamout

Blondes Vs. Brunettes: Texas Strip-off (1988) Remember when society associated hair color with sexual prowess? This was the same time they associated lack of tan lines with sexual prowess as well. Thank God we've come so fucking far. #vhseptember #treasuredtrash #strippers #blondes #brunettes #texas #stripping #beta #betamax #vhs #feedyourvcr

Ladies Night Out (1983) Peter Adonis was an interesting character in the male stripping world. Starting up his own traveling review as competition for Chippendales. #vhseptember #treasuredtrash #peteradonis #malestrippers #beta #betamax #vhs #feedyourvcr
