» Siblings

My brother wouldn't let me watch the TV show I wanted...
So I stole the remote control and changed the channel through the window outside after he locked me out. The neighbours thought it was funny.

» Redundant technology

It's still good to have a VHS player
some things are never going to be released on DVD/Blu-ray and are a lot cheaper to source on VHS.

It's complete bunk that the video store told you to rewind tapes, real archival places tell you not to as it preserves tension on the tapes better and gives you a chance to warm up the playing heads.

Trash Video in Brisbane closed this year and still has a 10K+ tapes in its collection.

I recently purchased this fine piece of work

And also this

Trash Humpers used VHS footage to make itself look authentic if nothing else (it's mainly just Harmony Karmoine and his friends dicking around.)

Mark my words, its going to end up like Moog or C64s, people will want to go back to video footage just like film SLRs even if it is just to do re-enactments of supposedly "found" footage.

» I don't understand the attraction

Nick Cave
I had the opportunity to meet him once, but passed it up as I almost vomited hearing the people suck up to him so much. Even the music media thinks his shit is gold. The real reason he had to bugger off to Berlin the 80s as he owed too many people money from his smack habit (allegedly).

» Childhood Ambitions

I knew where I was going at least...
When I was twelve and still in primary school our family drove past a major university and I was heard to say "I'm going there one day", 10 years later and I had graduated from that same university.
