    I dunno. There was the Betamax that actually was better quality but for some reason the VHS crushed it

    Oh bother...

    Before that though. Something old and ridiculous.

    I don't think there was anything before VCRs besides Betamax. I mean unless you are talking professional stuff, I think betamax/vcr was the first in home shit.

    And yeah betamax had better quality but was more expensive.

    Here in Cloud Cuckoo Land, there are no rules: There's no government, no baby sitters, no bedtimes, no frowny faces, no bushy mustaches, and no negativity of any kind. And there's also no consistency.

    I think that what we had before VCR's & betamax was re-runs.

    I mean specify more about "record shit" like I'm taking that to mean record things from the TV.

    Holy shit. My parents had these weird video things when I was very little that I don't remember that well, the way I remember them was sort as giant video playing 3.25" floppy disk. I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was called, and my parents couldn't remember what it was called either. What you posted just may be it. I remember we had a Charlie Brown one and a 49ers one.

    Congratulations 2010, 2012, and 2014 San Francisco Giants! Beat LA!
