TODAY IS VCR DAY
They were the hallmark of movie watching in our youth, carrying films home from our local Blockbuster for a night of family fun and entertainment. Together we’d gather around the huge cathode ray tube TV’s in our living room, not even thinking to complain about the static lines that occasionally would run across the screen from a movie that had been worn with love from rewatching. VCR Day comes each year to remind us to take some time to appreciate the nostalgia of the tech of yesteryear.
It was really the 90s kids who really had the full scope of the VCR evolution and were the first ones to really grasp the concept of taping, recording, rewinding and we all have stacks somewhere of our old VCR tapes that housed all our favorite 90s shows.
