Re: Jennifer Lien Was Arrested in July???

The only Trek video I now own is a Star Trek: Generations preview cassette given away in very limited numbers prior to cinematic release. It must be worth up to two whole English pounds by now.

Re: Jennifer Lien Was Arrested in July???

There was a short ran sitcom last year "Man Up" where this was said...

"Let's watch Star Wars HOW GOD INTENDED IT! On an original 1982 theatrical cut betamax video cassette."

We had a Betamax first up. The first two movies we rented were American Werewolf in London and Condorman. I think it's obvious which is better, if you haven't heard of the latter.

Re: Jennifer Lien Was Arrested in July???

Betamax was a superior machine with inferior marketing.

I spent years thinking that Gene Wilder was the star of Condorman, and then shit a brick when I figured out how in error I was.

According to Creation's web-site, Jennifer Lien is going to be at the Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas next year. I'm guessing that means she wouldn't be serving any long jail time after her arrest. That's a good thing!

How does that work?

Re: Jennifer Lien Was Arrested in July???

It's not free to me.

They are luddites.

One of the worst experiences of my life is when they asked me to sell a car for them on ebay.

Most music is free online somewhere.

I should have made a list of things people have asked me to sell them on ebay.

What's going to die first, all the Star trek video tapes or all the video players?

It's amazing how much it costs to convert videotape into dvd/digital media.

Not the same thing, but my step father was told that for just 500 dollars that he could convert all his old cassette tapes into cds, and he thought it was a good deal because he had a "fantastic" music collection.
I got a program from BESTBuy for $80.00 to convert my Cassettes to CDs, CDs you can buy a stack of 50 for about $10.

Got a VHS to DVD burner from Walmart for $150.00 to burn my VHS to DVDs (Though some store bought VHS, especially Disney fail the conversion process, so, I still have a boatload of classic movies on VHS)

I converted my entire adult collection to DVD's. That is all I managed to do with my dvd recorder. I still have it too.

Re: Jennifer Lien Was Arrested in July???

The idea is is good, and the tech is good. it's just that you're sitting there with this tech after you've converted all your old media and you suddenly start to calculate how much you'll charge assholes too lazy and stupid to buy this tech for themselves and use it themselves.

The real question, is how much would you charge a stranger to convert their audio tapes and their video tapes for them? How much in labour and how much in proccess, and at what point do you start to feel llike a grifter when the price you come up with is mulitiples of the cost of the hardware you bought to undertake the process?

Believe it or not, there's talk of remaking CONDORMAN . . .

More amazing trivia: CONDORMAN was based on a novel by Robert Sheckley. (The title escapes me.)

It also inspired an Baskin & Robbins ice cream tie-in: "Condorman Crunch."

Strange but true!

I remember that, it was followed by an ice cream flavor for "Herbie goes to Monte Carlo"
