They Still Sit Collecting Dust
Back in the 1980s when VHS tapes were the rage and home recording of movies and shows was becoming more popular, I had a VCR and I had a great time recording shows with those blank VHS tapes that were available in stores. Since I liked the original Star Trek, I made it my mission to record each episode. It lasted three seasons and had 79 one hour episodes. Each blank VHS tape could hold 6 hours of recorded material. So, I had around 12 VHS recorded tapes of that show plus I had recorded a few other movies and shows.
I was proud of my movie library. Then DVDs started coming out and VHS became more obsolete. And also, VHS tapes have a tendency of warping and can break.
Now, my husband and I have a DVD player for movies and we do have an older VHS machine that works ok, but since we use the DVD player more most of those VHS movies are sitting in the closet collecting dust.
