Is that a dishwasher?
no, that’s just an xbox one. it just looks a bit funny. must be customized…
Seeing a lot of people in the notes call this a “VHS player”. Like, was I just around the wrong people?…
Thanks, Dario! I would be willing to help out with the Wiki. I think I tried to add things to it ages ago, but couldn’t figure out how to use it. If you could PM me a quick guideline for that, I’d love to help out. Also, if anyone else wants to add any and all info or pics that they see on my Tumblr, please do. (A small credit somewhere is all I’d want.) Thanks for checking out my page! :D
I ask myself the same thing! :-P
Seriously, though, and to make a long story relatively short: I got swamped with a massive and stressful work project in June, followed by a lot of theater (including a show that goes up in early August), and am hoping to post Gulliver week sometime in August. After that, I’ll need to find some way to celebrate hitting 200 followers (five months before I’d expected to!). I’m also considering opening a personal Tumblr page for my other interests, and maybe also returning to web videos as well. And if, for some crazy reason, those plans don’t pan out this year, my retirement from community theater next year will allow me some catch-up time. At the very least, I’ll be recording some cameos for others’ projects within the next month or so. My apologies for the delay(s)….
I’d love to help. Which movies/cartoons do you own and are wanting to show? Let me know. In the meantime, here’s a Wiki list of films currently in (or generally thought to be in) public domain:
(I would take the Warner Bros. list with a grain of salt, since all public domain based releases have stopped releasing Looney Tunes shorts.)
Since these cartoons were mainly straight transfers from old prints, I don’t expect things like the speed, color, etc to be perfect. Comparing different sources over YouTube (PD print vs remastered official release) has not shown a pitch difference (In this case, Falling Hare and To Duck or Not To Duck). Do you have some examples where the audio pitch sounded strange?
Needless to say, I’ve pushed “Gulliver’s Travels Week” to July. The last few weeks have been very work-intensive, and my spirits outside of work have been less than stellar. Make no mistake, it will happen, but I’ve got to find my groove again first. Not sure about VHS-mas in July II yet. I may hold off on the Christmas theme until, you know, Christmas. Advance thanks for your patience.
If anyone has any Sears, Avon, or other catalogs (from the late eighties to early nineties) that might have listings for (and pics of) public domain cartoon related VHS tapes in them, let me know. (I could swear that there’s a late ‘80’s Sears catalog or two with UAV/Funtime Kid tapes featured in them, and I remember Avon selling VHS tapes of Gulliver’s Travels and other multi-cartoon sets in the early ‘90’s. Sadly, I no longer have the proof at my disposal.) If you collect such things and can do any scans (or if you just want a reason to finally get rid of some old catalogs), let me know. I will give credit for scans, and if you send me an entire catalog, I can reimburse for shipping (or send you an extra cartoon tape from my collection). Advance thanks!
I don’t have it, but there are eight copies available on Amazon. The prices vary depending on the seller, but since you found your copy at the Good Will, you probably got the best deal for it. :)
I had yet to take a closer look at the Anchor Bay and other 50 cartoon tapes, so thanks for pointing that out (especially the over-50 part). I still have my doubts about Superman’s cartoons going back out of public domain (despite WB having the original prints), but you may still be onto something.
