    Hey yall just wanted to start a conversation about what I'm up to. I've decided that that I'm gonna start selling my DVDs and replacing them with VHS tapes. I love the nostalgia of the VHS. I recently bought you've got mail. Brand new sealed. I opened it and the smell took me back to being a kid. It also had four post card with images from the movie. It was really neat to see. I also am starting to record my shows on VHS. Just wanted to tell someone. Maybe yall can appreciate this

      That is interesting. I dig it. Would you (or anybody) be interested in buying used tapes by mail order? I know this store, they have hundreds of VHS movies, in the sleeves, for $4 each. Of course, shipping cost would have to be added on if you can't pick up in person (Chicago).

          When I read "Phasing out dvd collection", I thought you meant you were going all digital, which would be moving forward. VHS makes me nostalgic too, but I don't know if I could go back to dealing with tracking, rewinding, and stacks of humongous movie boxes. If that's what makes you happy then more power to you, I would suggest making digital copies of all your DVDs before you get rid of them, and keep them on a media drive in your home network.

            I understand completely. I know it probably sounds weird, my girlfriend even noticed yesterday. She said so you sold your DVDs nd came back with VHS?? I have PTSD from Iraq, and when I got back I kind of slipped into the past. No all I do is live in the past. I love VHS movies, cassette tapes, 80s-90s music. I've turned into an old man. Can't stand how the world is and how people act. Not to mention all the stupid reality shows that are on tv.

              Hey Will. I stopped into that store. See anything you like? Most of them are actually $3
              each. And of course, volume discounts are available.

                That's cool man, I'm glad you made it home safe. I became a nostalgia junky during one of my deployments, after I stumbled upon this website. I enjoy the memories, but these days I'm more inclined to embrace the changes. Especially changes in technology.

                In my own experience, I went through a short period of time where I was clinging and longing for the past, in reality I wasn't happy with my current situation in life, reminiscing about the past made me feel better. Just felt like sharing a little...

                  That's awesome you found a way to relax and enjoy things after coming back from Iraq. Devote a few saturday mornings to garage sale hunting and you'll have a treasure trove of VHS for next to nothing.
