This is completely unrelated to anything else posted on the thread but...

I feel inordinately proud of the fact that I went for a full-on makeout with a guy just to cockblock him. Just to furiously, unstoppably, magnificently cockblock him with a girl he really fancied but was a bit too drunk for her own good. And it was hilarious and wonderful and I am far too proud of the fact that my first kiss was done in order to completely screw somebody else over.

If KoB is the Chorrol Forums' Lord of Spam, I am the Chorrol Forums' King of the Trolls. You are all wonderful and I love you. Every single one of you.

VHS... huh.gif

I remember those. They only have one redeeming feature nowadays:

All the DVD versions of Star Wars: A New Hope are the remastered ones, where Greedo shoots first. This is why I don't have the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD.

Han shot first.

Damn straight! I hate it so much when they re-master movies, not to mention re-re-re-master like Lucas does!! mad.gif

Han shot first because he knew Greedo was gonna either kill him or take him to Jabba alive, both options unacceptable. I have the trilogy on VHS and that bullshit isnīt there! biggrin.gif

VHS is superior to DVD on so many levels. You can fast forward anywhere you want which means you never have to endure commercials or DANGER!! notices. Also you can stop the movie anywhere, take it out and store it on a shelf for years (why you would do that is beyond my point) and when you pop it back in you continue exactly where you left off. Not to mention, VHS handles damage so much better than DVD because when that gets even one tiny scratch, the disc is practically ruined while the VHS just flicker and moves past the problem whitout stuttering or shutting down.

And donīt feed me that crap that the technology is old, like anything it can be improved. The latter NES games had almost Super Nintendo qualities while the first (and many others) almost looked like Atari games. My point is, you can improve something if you want to instead of scrapping the system for another. Not forever of course, but better VCRs can also be made.

VHS FTW!!!! IPB Image

VHS... huh.gif

I remember those. They only have one redeeming feature nowadays:

All the DVD versions of Star Wars: A New Hope are the remastered ones, where Greedo shoots first. This is why I don't have the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD.

Han shot first.

Damn straight! I hate it so much when they re-master movies, not to mention re-re-re-master like Lucas does!! mad.gif

Han shot first because he knew Greedo was gonna either kill him or take him to Jabba alive, both options unacceptable. I have the trilogy on VHS and that bullshit isnīt there! biggrin.gif


I still can't believe that Lucas thought it remotely believeable that a bounty hunter, who was obviously good enough to make Han nervous, could miss a stationary target from three feet away. Madness.

VHS is superior to DVD on so many levels. You can fast forward anywhere you want which means you never have to endure commercials or DANGER!! notices. Also you can stop the movie anywhere, take it out and store it on a shelf for years (why you would do that is beyond my point) and when you pop it back in you continue exactly where you left off. Not to mention, VHS handles damage so much better than DVD because when that gets even one tiny scratch, the disc is practically ruined while the VHS just flicker and moves past the problem whitout stuttering or shutting dow.


Yeah, I'll grant you, all the [censored] about piracy and such can be a pain, though you can usually skip the adverts with the menu button. And I only watch DVDs on my 360 since my DVD player doesn't like HD720p. The upside of this is that if I'm watching a film, and have to stop for some reason, if I put the disc back in later, as long as I haven't put another DVD in in the meantime, it'll resume from where I was.

As for handling damage, I can't really say one's better than the other. Fast forwarding, rewinding, and pausing weren't good for the tapes, so just watching them was bad for them. But DVDs are unpredictable when it comes to how much damage they can take before they stop working.

And donīt feed me that crap that the technology is old, like anything it can be improved. The latter NES games had almost Super Nintendo qualities while the first (and many others) almost looked like Atari games. My point is, you can improve something if you want to instead of scrapping the system for another.


And I wasn't going to. I've currently got a 3DS, so I'm still playing games that come on cartridges, so I know that technology can be updated and improved. And since I've been using Nintendo handhelds since the GameBoy Pocket, I've literally watched Nintendo do just that.

Just going to throw Blade Runner out there; original version had a rubbish ending and the remastered director's cut gave us a way better movie. It also came with an expanded version of Vangelis' soundtrack, which was absolutely superb.

In any case, while this may be a generational thing I really don't get all the fuss about Star Wars (specifically the original trilogy). They're not bad movies, by and large, but they hardly seem worthy of the near-messianic status modern pop culture affords them. Leaves me wondering how much of it is based on the actual merit of the film and how much of it is the films being viewed by lenses so rose-tinted they're blinding.

I canīt go past the DANGER!!! and all the bullshit menus, all I get when trying is that red circle with a bar.

Tapes can be made better and I still have many tapes from 20 years ago that I can still watch in good quality. I donīt want the super HD quality anyway, it hurts my eyes wacko.gif

VHS was a good thing and could be made much, much better if there wasnīt such a rush in getting everything digital. Makes me wonder what hidden agendas they have with that. I have my ideas though, remember when they scared people with the fake marsian attacks on the radio back in the ī30s or whenever? I feel that was just a test run.

Nuff said mellow.gif

Sorry. Gotta disagree with you Mirocu. There's a reason VHS is extinct and it is because DVD is superior in nearly every way. As long as they're maintained they have a longer lifespan than VHS tapes, which degrade over time and wear out from normal use. CD's last a looooong time if you don't play Frisbee with them.

DVD's have a clearer picture, scene selection that lets you skip forward in increments instead of waiting for the player to slowly move forward, no need to rewind, and of course they're lighter and more compact.

There's a part of me that misses VHS tapes but then I watch a movie that doesn't have dots all over the screen as it plays and I can remember why I've embraced technology.

I agree with you about Blu Ray. Waste of money as far as I'm concerned when it comes to movies. There is a very distinct benefit when it comes to video games though. It eliminates the need for multiple discs because Blu Ray can store so much more information.

I did get a Blu Ray instead of a regular DVD a few years back, I thought of it as an "investment". Turns out it canīt read any burnt disc, only store-bought ones.

My blu-ray player plays my home-burned dvds and blu-rays just fine. If you are burning files like mp4s or wmvs, the codecs they are encoded with makes a huge difference. Some players will only play divx encoded files, and so on. Likewise some will only play certain formats, like mp4s and avis, but not mkvs. It is just a matter of looking carefully at the specs of both player and disc.

If it is just a matter of standard movie dvds or blu-rays, I am at a loss as to why it would not work.

Everything works on it except home brews. Meh, not that big of a deal since I donīt really watch anything anyway. But still, it was expensive.
