THANK GOODNESS these beta tapes were hidden away in some file cabinet or under some bed! YouTuber BACKPORCHVIDEO has posted videos made in the mid '80's of some sort of cable access show of the same name made by young punks (side note: Dino went on to be one of the New Monkees) showcasing hardcore shows that came thru town, their hilarious friends with hilarious facial hair, and alternative and punk rock in general as seen thru the eyes of high school teenagers from Detroit/Dearborn Michigan. What a time capsule! I started with the Scratch Acid clips (oh, look how young they were!) and am now addicted.... I can't pull myself away! WATCH NOW!

Oh, you need to get this. I have a few now because when I see one I am compelled to buy it... This is a micro-phonograph player... really. It plays these tiny thin one sided flexy-style plastic records that are glued to these printed cards. The cards give information about what the record is playing... In this case, these are all bird songs and each card tells you a bit about each bird as well as having a beautiful Audubon-ish illustration of said bird. They really are amazing. This one comes with a mess of packets of card/records too so BUY NOW!!!
