Here’s a new idea: VHSs are the best thing in the world.

Each year, new innovations and advances in technology inevitably come and we can’t help but notice that people are trying too hard to move forward, even at the expense of everything we, Chris and Kyle, hold dear, not the least of which is watching movies. We are tired of it. DVDs, Blu-Rays, computer movies, projector reels, wires, plugs, HD stuff—what happened to the good old days of just putting in a movie and hitting play? We want to go back to those simpler days of movie watching that required no thought, intelligence, or technological savvy. We just want to watch movies, not think about complicated stuff like technology! And don’t even get us started on the complicated movies. If you have to read the words at the bottom of the screen, it’s not a movie, it’s a book. If we don’t want to think about technology, we sure as heck don’t want to think about reading the words or figuring out complicated plotlines!
Without a doubt, VHS videocassettes provide an alternative to the complicated, technology-filled, boring experience of watching movies of today. If we wanted to be that bored, we’d probably just sit around and talk to each other. But we don’t want to do that, we want to watch movies! So it all comes full circle to VHS videocassettes. At almost any thrift store or yard sale, you can find cheap, entertaining VHSs and VCRs that require little or no thought to use or watch. Even better, most VHSs you find are kids movies or star Jim Carrey! Alright! Where else will you find the most epic movie quotes to date? “This house is so full of people, it MAKES ME SICK. When I grow up and get married, I’M LIVING ALONE!” – Kevin, Home Alone. “I am feeling very Olympic today!” – Sanca, Cool Runnings. “You wouldn’t believe it if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows.” – Forrest, Forrest Gump.
