Yeah, you read that right. It’s VCR day. Remember those? They look big and bulky now, but when they were new they were a marvel of technology – hard case, magnetic tape, and you could actually record live TV to play back later, when you were ready to watch. Top of the line stuff!
Believe it or not, I still have a working VCR and several lovely VHS tapes. If you’re as lucky as I am, then pull out your favorite VHS, plug in the VCR, and celebrate today with (what will obviously have to be) an old movie, popcorn, and the works.
“What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
and if that’s the human lifespan, imagine what the life of the VHS, CD, or other technology.
