Independently organized VHS swaps and screenings seem to be spreading like rewind-inclined wildfire, Tapeheads. Events like the annual Severed Horror VHS Collector’s Unite convention, Lo-Fi Video’s Buy or Die VHSwaps in L.A., the influence of Tape Eaters in the mid-west, and most recently, the Night of 1000 VHS hosted by Horror Boobs in Brooklyn,...
UK-based VHS collecting offers a decidedly different historical scope both past and present, e.g. the Video Nasty controversy and recent VHS value misrepresentation, and if you’re looking for an insightful, lovingly-built window into VHS culture across the pond, Darren J. Perry and Mark Williams’ VHS FOREVER? PSYCHOTRONIC PEOPLE documentary offers...
If you’re going to be in the Brooklyn, NY area on Friday, August 19th and are looking for an incredible explosion of analog excitement, look no further, Tapeheads. The video vindicators at Horror Boobs are teaming up with the Brooklyn Fire Proof Summer Screening series to host a monumental rewind-inclined event entitled “Night of 1000 VHS” which...
A while back here in Lunchmeat Land, the totally awesome illustrator Tavi Veraldi (aka Poor Milk) and I debuted the first installment in a series of VHS-driven comic collaborations that were created to explore the many musings brought on by a fervent affection for our favorite format. We decided to title it MAGNETIC MEMORIES (see what we did there?),...
I’m going to go ahead and venture a pretty safe guess that there are more than a few Videovores out there who frequent Lunchmeat Land who also dabble in the world of table top RPGs (or have at least thought about it). If you’re fitting this description, then you’re in for a treat because the groovy rewind-inclined folks over at Lost Cat Games...
Heads up, my fellow Videovores! Legendary New York-based underground filmmaker Lisa Hammer (director of Pox, The Sister Plotz, and cult favorite Puss Bucket, as well as the voice of Triana Orpheus on the animated series The Venture Bros.) is currently battling cancer. In order to help raise funds for her treatment, the rewind-inclined analog enthusiasts...
The Teenage Videovore Johnny Dickie is likely to have already invaded your VCR with his 2012 VHS-centric, low-budget trashterpiece Slaughter Tales, and now, thanks to the rewind-inclined crew at Australia-based indie film distro New Wave Independent Pictures, Dickie’s punk rock, gore-soaked neon nightmare City of the Dream Demons is ready to unleash...
Here in Lunchmeat Land, we don’t do politics. In fact, I think that may be the first (and only) time the “P” word will ever appear on this slice of analog-obsessed internet. However, as most of you Videovores know, we’re expressly dedicated to spreading the rewind word in every way imaginable. So, with the recent surfacing of the following image...
The advent of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things has the streaming-inclined masses of binge watchers absolutely abuzz with awe and excitement, and for good reason. Taking cues from seminal productions like E.T., X-Files and The Goonies (though I would say Explorers!) Stranger Things offers viewers a Speilbergian kind of world peppered with...
Staunch fans of our favorite analog format were met with some historically heartbreaking news yesterday, as confirmed by a Mental Floss UK article. Japan-based consumer electronics company Funai Electric has announced that at the end of this month, they will discontinue manufacturing their VCR units (which were produced in China) due to decline in demand...
