Do You Still Have a VCR?

You might be surprised to hear that I still had VHS tapes as recent as two years ago. I actually only got rid of them because, when my boyfriend moved in, he insisted they go. It was quite the geeky tug of war!

But it wasn't about me thinking the technology was still viable — I was just hanging on to movies I hadn't bought on DVD yet and it was kind of sentimental. In the end, I knew he was right — they were just taking up space and I couldn't stand to watch movies in that level of quality anyway. So heave-ho, off to Goodwill they went.

But then, of course, I had to decide what to do with my VCR. My family hasn't converted all our home movies from VHS yet, and I was worried I'd need it for something. In the end, I was the one who got rid of the VCR (mostly because I was having a Monica Gellar attack).

So do you still keep one around? Either for just-in-case purposes, or because you still watch VHS tapes (promise I won't judge)?
