Convert VHS to DVD Before It's Too Late

Production Stops On Last-known VCR Production Line. Convert your family treasures to DVD before it's too late! Remember that box of old VHS tapes you have in the closet?  The magnetic material that makes up your tape is slowly rotting away.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  This happens due to fluctuations in temperature, humidity and normal wear and tear.  The tape is gradually disintegrating with every use and slowly losing it's magnetism.  Eventually you will start to see signs of this in the form of noise and distortion in your audio & video signals.  Check out the video above to see which VHS to DVD video conversion method is best for you.

Joe was awesome enough to let me feature his old VHS tape in the video.  I'm glad he did.  I think we all can agree it made things a little bit more fun.  This is my first ever YouTube collaboration video and it was a blast!  Joe and I go way back.  In middle school and high school we played in a garage band called Unauthorized Use.  Joe is stilling rocking out.  If you're in Boston, look for Joe Greaney & The Chasers playing live music at John Harvards Brewery.  Looking forward to doing more collaboration videos in the future.  Send me a message or leave a comment below if you have any good collaboration ideas.

Let's Make Prime Day The New Cyber Monday

Well today is Prime Day.  According to Wednesday July 15, 2015, "is a global shopping event, offering more deals than Black Friday, exclusively for Prime members... new and existing members will be able to"

1). Shop thousands of Lightning Deals
2). Deals of the Day
3). Receive unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping

It sounds like Amazon is trying to redefine cyber Monday. In reality they're trying to get more folks to sign up for Prime which I think is smart on their part. Hang with me for a minute. Black Friday is the traditional brick and mortar, shop til you drop day that is now attempting to take over the entire Thanksgiving weekend here in the USA.

I've definitely noticed some Black Friday backlash in recent years.  And for good reason!  With the deals starting on Thursday afternoon you've got people talking about heading to the mall before desert has even been served. Don't mess with desert man!  Or two-hand touch for that matter.

I'm not convinced anyone needs another excuse to buy more stuff but if there must be a Cyber Monday my vote is to move it to a random Wednesday in July so that it doesn't infringe upon family time during Thanksgiving weekend.
