DVD & CD vs. VHS & 8-Track

Russ Forster fires off a “useless angry raving” on “the DVD Craze”:

“They are trumpeting that DVDs deliver better picture and sound more reliably than any analog formats. It all sounds so alluring, but after having to suffer through a rented DVD that had scratches rendering sections of GOSFORD PARK unwatchable, I have a greater appreciation of VHS tapes (as I do 8-tracks) as being jerry-riggable if not fully fixable when problems arise. “

I’m not saying I agree with him, but, hey, this is the dude who helped reinvigorate 8-tracks, for Christ’s sake.

Listen to an interview with Russ from the July 19 edition of the mediageek radio show.
