Any "Tape Heads" or "Spinners?" (VHS or Laserdisc Collectors?)

Tools    





do laserdisc players do typical RCA input for TV screens? I've been thinking about getting one because of this thread, haha
Yes, RCA. Yellow video and two audio Red and White. Plays best, (in my opinion), on original CRT intent... but I'm old school.

I got rid of my epic video collection about 10 years ago and have mentioned somewhere before it was worse thing I ever done, regret it with all my being. My favourite had to be my double vhs pack of night of the living dead and return of the living dead or The Rollerboys .. damn it hurts to even think about, I’ll never mention this again.
Awww. Dude. Sorry to hear that man. But it's never too late! Films never die/go away! I'm sure you can start a-new.



Took to watching this tonight, Hunger... kinda surprised that it made it to a Laserdisc transfer... seems more of a VHS vignette kinda deal. It felt like a student film. If your going to cover your bases here, narratively it was "meh," as far as aesthetically and through innovation it had "moments," but they were better covered in the French New Wave, and a technical stand point it didn't pave any new ground. So curious. Curious as to "why" it made this format? And two, since it "did" it certainly adjusts my eyes on the "range" of the Laserdisc format. Very interesting.
