I grew up to cassettes and VHS. Not sure if the early 80s 8track was still being used. I would assume yes, but for me I used cassette tapes and VHSs in the mid 80s through the 90s until CD became the next device. I happen to have a very very old karaoki machine that has two 8track and 2 cassette inputs with the very old and large input for microphones. I bet the thing still runs. Funny because a friend of mine used to practice with his band in my garage and used it as a substitute for a PA system. He left it and I later used it as a substitute for a guitar amp until I had a real amp. Sounded horrible for an electric guitar since it didn't have a mid, gain (distortion), or bass knob to it.

I started out with 45's on a cheap mono player at 11 years old,i couldn't play my music in the house for my parents hated rock,if it wasn't country or gospel music it was devils music and not allowed.I grew up in a bizarre world.Hehe

I stayed with 8track for quite a while after cassettes came out mainly because i had so damn many 8tracks but eventually i moved to cassettes for my autos.

Hehe,i love to see that karaoke machine.:D

 

It's exactly this one right here, except it's not in mint condition as this one in the image. And for some reason instead of saying Panasonic at the bottom left corner, it says National.

Here is another that most likely haven't seen either. It is a comedy.

another movie from Roberto Benigni

Night on Earth (Rome)

If you like old time comedy then you might like those. Also more than likely you haven't see these.

Roberto Benigni is an italian actor quite famous. he made mainly comedies but succeeded also in doing some great "serious" movies such as this one (here's the english version, but the italian one is better, sorry :P )

Okay, this makes sense. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_(brand)

Maybe they were under National before slapping it with Panasonic logo instead.

 

On topic:

I laughed hysterically as a kid to this movie and been wanting to see it as it's been a long long time.

Weekend at Bernies

English version. Not a good one though.

More of a drama. I think it won several awards when it was released.

Roberto Benigni reminds me of the KGB agent in Moscow on the Hudson with Robin Williams.

I think of him more as the Italian version of Robin Williams. :P

If some are confused, I moved the documentaries and other intellectual videos to a thread for such discussion leaving this for more light discussions of movies.
