You know, now that I think of it, I don't really remember much in the way of what winters are like here in general. Tend to get more snow in the new year, but that's about all that's caught in my mind.

Now, hereīs two short videos from the man behind the Nerd; James Rolfe as the Bullshit man! These videos bring up all the complaints I have about DVDs! Everything that makes me wanna go back to plain-ass regular goddamn simple-as-can-be functional no bullshit user-friendly VHS!

-Iīm with you, Bullshit man!!!

DVD packaging

DVDs

Kiln's VHS commercial:

Journey with us to another time. A time when all movies had spotty pictures and had to be tediously rewound after watching. A time where scene selection involved fast forwarding through the entire movie up to the point you wanted to watch. Welcome to VHS. You can step back with us and experience the limited lifespan of tapes that are three times as heavy and bulky as DVD's.

A few warnings: Don't leave them in the sun or they'll never work again. All VHS movies will have damage to the edges of the picture after watching extensively. All VHS tapes have a grainy picture that is strenuous to the eyes, forget HD, real men strain their eyes every day just to get the headache.

You'd think so, wouldn't you?

I've thought the same about other things I've bought him over the years, particularly ones he's requested, and been proven wrong.

Kiln is wrong! VHS tapes are not heavy and they can have great quality picture, much as DVD can get one tiny scratch and be useless!

Furthermore HD is so vastly overrated and only made up to make guys such as yourselves buy the same Movies again and a new TV when your old is fully functional!

Just have to weigh in on this, the underlined part.

Was this not a notable feature of VHS? That they would wear out if watched too often, forcing you to by the same video again? biggrin.gif
mirocu
I have never had to buy a VHS movie because the old one was worn from watching it frequently blink.gif Itīs so much easier to destroy a DVD by accidently making a small scratch! laugh.gif

I have watched my Jurassic Park tape so many times itīd make your head spin, and itīs still as good as it was when it was new cool.gif

Funny, I've had more VHS break than DVD's. In point of fact I can't recall a single disc I've had that became damaged and unusable. I've had a 360 game break like that, but only because my dad inadvertently kicked the 360 while I was playing. And I got it repaired a few days later at Game for the princely sum of I think Ģ3.

But, as they say, your milage may vary*shrugs*

Of course the quality of the tapes varied, but still Iīve never had a tape gone unwatchable. Not a single one!

And I could always skip the commercial in the beginning by pressing fast forward. Try doing that with a DVD cool.gif

My DVDs let me skip the advertisements for other films by hitting the menu button on the remote. So much more convenient. Can't skip the piracy BS, but that's a small price to pay. Considering they take up less space, don't require a dedicated player if you have any games console from the last few years, and come with many more extras that you didn't get on VHS, the pros outweigh the cons.

At least, they do in my opinion.

Press the menu button, and nine times out of ten it works.

Face it, Mirocu, DVDs are superior to VHS; if they weren't, they would have lost out to the VHS through commercial natural selection. Instead, the DVD replaced the VHS. Plenty of attempted innovations have failed because they weren't as good as the current product, weren't bought by consumers and therefore weren't supported by companies because they weren't profitable (see the minidisc, a flop that has been outlived by the CD), but the DVD was an innovation that was better than the current product. If it wasn't, it wouldn't have succeeded.

Now back tot his essay. Again. Rassnfrassn...

Wrong. So many products are forced upon us by politicians and companies, not because they are necessarily better but because they want us to spend money.

Did you know that the electric car was a success in the late 1800s? It worked and was very popular amongst drivers. But because they could make more money out of petroleum based engines thatīs why we have the cars we have today.
Later on GM made another one and gave them away to famous movie actors and so on in a publicity stunt, and they loved it! Then out of the blue GM took them all back with no explanation and later the cars were destroyed, again with no explanation.

If your logic really was in place the gas powered car would have never seen the light of day.

This is a good point.

It doesn't support the claim that VHS>DVD, but it is a good point.

Look, Iīm not saying the DVD isnīt a good thing, Iīm just saying the VHS wasnīt as bad as you make it out to be. I prefer the VHS, amongst other things, because of its smooth running even when damaged. And I hate all the crap I canīt bypass no matter how many times I press FF or Menu on a DVD.

With VHS, I was in control.

And I think the minidisc should have survived. Its surface was protected, a CDīs isnīt.

I'll grant you, the anti-piracy spiel they stick on DVDs is annoying, mostly because I know that people who've pirated the DVD don't need to put up with it. mad.gif

But I've never seen a VHS that can match the amount of content on a special edition DVD.

And also, in physical terms, I can fit two entire series of a program like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or House into the space taken up by a single VHS. That works out at 12 DVDs, so a lot more content in the same space.

In my opinion there's no competition whatsoever. VHS might not have been [censored], but DVD outdoes it in every category, though personal experience may vary.

This argument is basically the only one I can buy regarding the DVD; itīs so much thinner than a VHS tape. If you want a collection on VHS tapes, put up an extra shelf or three! laugh.gif
