I Watch VHS begins.
You can learn a lot about a culture by its trash, just ask an archaeologist. You could say that commercials are the trash of the 20th century, throw away pieces of video put together to advertise something in the moment. However I see them historically, as a view into what we bought, what we found popular, and what we watched. I sat through many of the commercials as a child, and when I salvaged these tapes I found them to be more interesting than the programs recorded on them. Here's my blog then, old stuff (mostly commercials) that I found on my old VHS tapes.
