Ha Ha Ha!
You want ‘dated’???? How about this – I used to record with a BETA! Not only a Beta, but one of the first BETA-MAX machines made!!!! LOL! That machine was a big Brick/Box and the ‘remote’ was tethered to the machine…. with a 25 foot cable! LOL! Great Times!
Lol!! I’ve heard of Betamax! They were around when I was growing up; my parents just backed the VHS pony. I feel like I remember seeing the tapes for a beta somewhere in my life. Perhaps an uncle’s house? Not sure, so don’t quote me on that. 😉
However, I definitely remember my paternal grandparents having a 8 track! I played with the cartridges whenever I visited them. Thankfully I always knew better than to pull on the ribbon! And my dad, to this day, still has his turntable. I bet I could find my fairy tale vinyl record in his collection, if I looked. Definitely good times!! 😄August 10, 2019 at 9:03 am #1576690
I remember recording via VHS too! It could be such a pain. I so don’t miss those days! I also used to go to cons and buy the bootleg fan-subed VHSs that had been copied and recopied like 50,000 times just so I could get my fix. Because Funimation made molasses in January at the Arctic circle seem fast with their release of that series. Kids now-a-days have no idea how good the have it! XD
I’m like that too! No idea why I like Veggie, because I know that if I’d met him in person, I’d probably hate him. I think it’s because he speaks his mind regardless of how others may feel; a trait that I wish I had bit of. I also love how much he grows in the series. He goes from this evil bad@$$ to a…not evil, but still a jerk at times bad@$$ family man! It’s really impressive. Future Trunks is another fave of mine and then Goku because he and Veggie are just such good foils for each other. Love their dynamic. 🙂
I have seen a tiny bit of Super (still in the Beerus fight) and I like what I see, just not as much as Z. ^^; I’ve watched a few other anime (some of Full Metal Alchemist, Saiyuki, Fushigi Yugi, Slayers, some Naruto), but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m REALLY out of date when it comes to the current stuff. What anime have caught you? 🙂
Sounds like an awesome collection of plushies, but oh God, a plushie of poor Nina?! I’d cry every time I looked at it! T_T
Nice about your car! Sounds similar to my Geek-mobile. It’s a purple Honda Fit covered in TMNT, DBZ (and DBZA), scifi, and RPG stickers, plus my license plate reads “LUVTMNT.” Seen more than a few smiles on the faces of the people behind me. XD
But, you got to meet THE Kevin Eastman! Ah, so jealous! That is so cool!! 😀 My latest bit of luck was grtting to meet all four of the voice actors for the Turtles in the 1987 series. I totally cried on them, I was so overwhelmed. ^^; My favorite TMNT character is Donatello. He is the reigning Turtle King as far as I’m concerned. What about you? Who’s your favorite?
Yay! A Donnie fan <3 Donnie is great and he does not get enough love. He’s always been pegged as the “least favorite turtle” and it’s such a shame. The team would be nothing without him. LOL! I still have to stick with my boyscout Leo. He was my favorite since I was a kid. I got attached to him when my father passed away. I was only 5 and for some reason he reminded me of my dad and I was obsessed when I was a little girl. As I grew up I kind of realized my dad was probably more like Raph though. ^_^ Have you been reading the recent comics? They just introduced a new female turtle to the team named Jennika. After Venus I didn’t think they would touch that with a 10 foot pole but she seems to be doing really well so far with fans. I’m still on the fence about it.
I haven’t been keeping up with anime like I should. I have so many DVDs on my shelf I have still yet to watch, it’s terrible. Loved Fullmetal, not sure I’ve ever met anyone who has watched it and said it was bad. Huge fan of Saiyuki too. My favorites range from cute titles like Fruits Basket and Ouran Highschool to more savage ones like Berserk, Elfen Lied, and Deadman Wonderland. I could never get into Bleach or One Piece, but I love Naruto. I actually made an intense 9 tailed fox costume that went viral for a few years. I’ve even seen memes of it, LOL.
You car sounds amazing! I would have probably squealed like a little girl meeting the voice cast. Meeting Kevin was awesome. Such a nice dude. I had a thousand things I wanted to say and literally got so nervous I blurted out “I like turtles” like an idiot and he kind of gave me the pet on the head like he totally knew I was too nervous to even talk and calmed me down so we could have a short chat. Peter Laird wasn’t there but I drove to Maine where he was doing a signing and he was so cute and nice he came outside and saw my car and signed the dashboard, which them prompted Ben Bishop and Steve Lavigne to come out and also sign it! Most surreal experience ever, but now I can’t ever trade it in! LOL!
