I resemble that. I still have a TV in the house in an upstairs bedroom that has a built-in VCR player. The VCR player doesn't get a lot of use these days.
Reminds me of my first big screen TV. It was a projection model that had this giant walnut projector that had to sit almost in the middle of the living room. Talk about handy. That thing was like one of those huge monoliths in Dead Space.
The dog would constantly crash into it racing thru the house then I got to spend the next hour or so trying to get the Red, Green and Blue 'guns' focused again. It's what we did to have toys, back in the day.
