What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.

Share some /nos/talgic VHS memories!

How about Alex Sax!??? It's better, muuuch better.


When I was around 3-5 years old I watched the first star wars trilogy almost every day. It was recorded on vhs off of a TV airing in the early 90s. There were commercials for Easter candy. Must've been around Easter when it was recorded. They're probably still in my mom's house somewhere.


Found a box with taped nights of Adult Swim from 2002-2005.

Haha, for the ones who dont know, the first one originated from cigarette commercials.

I mostly watched Benjamin Blümchen, Augsburger Puppenkiste and a recorded version of neverending story from TV.

I collect VHS today got over a hundred of trash movies and animated series.


I was at the right age to enjoy anime and fansubs from other college kids abusing the AV room. I wanted the buy the TV series releases that started to roll out soon after, but at $30 a tape… 90 episodes… this broke college kid couldn't afford $1200 a whack for the habit (and studios usually gave up on releasing it a couple seasons in anyway).

Torrents and cheap DVD box sets saved the day later in life but I got old at some point and stopped watching anime.

Back when 4chan (and the internet in general) was better.

I wish 4chan was never taken over by feds after they spammed it with captain planet

I miss you guys and think of you often. I really miss the comfy boards on 8chan. I haven't posted in years, but I'm so grateful that all of you are still here.

Happy New Year! Because of the maintenance, we couldn't post for a while but now I can, it seems. So I want to see this year being better for all of us.

Thank you! And Happy New Year to you, too! Merry Christmas, if you celebrate, or just happy day, week, and month to you and your loved ones! I spent Christmas day alone and working on some things…used to spend Christmas and new years on IBs and/or playing TF2…and it just got me thinking about all of you guys again.


I wish I started lurking imageboards sooner. I only started going to them in the early 2010s and feel like I missed out.

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.

This is an unused song from the game Suguri, one of my favorite shmp doujin game franchises from the 2000s. Whenever I hear the soaring dream trance I feel like I'm happily soaring above the clouds and exploring a beautiful level they always wanted to make but never got around to doing. It might have been the best level in the game.




Actually this melody feels more nostalgic: https://youtu.be/xJHlI4yszkc



The Boys Are Back in Town. Well, classic rock in general sounds nostalgic now since its so old, but this song with its lyrics and melody especially.

This is another thing I found on YouTube. I'm not really nostalgic for the track playing, but just the sights in this video radiate that nostalgic energy that I don't know how to describe…

I'll never feel nostalgic for suburbian hell.



Back when we still watched old animations in MS paint and flash didn't look primitive either.

Gotta get rid of my old games.

Selling my childhood games is something I consider one of my greatest regrets. Think carefully, anon. I'm sure you're going to try to get top-dollar for those games, so I won't make any offers here because I'm not sure what they're all worth, but if you do sell them somewhere like ebay, feel free to post a link, maybe?


File: 1550979433695.webm (3.03 MB, Bernie the hedgehog.webm)

I really feel like it's time for me to sell my old games and move onto playing new games.

Regrettably I have already sold Kirby: The Crystal Shards for N64, but do you have a SNES? If you still want Kirby's Dream Course for the SNES I'll mail to you if you live in America. You don't even have to pay me directly, just promise me on your honor that you'll donate $25 to either Bernie Sander or Andrew Yang via secure.actblue.com/‎
to fuck the corrupt capitalist 2 party system and then post your address somewhere and you'll get the game. Just so you know, it's a mini-golf game. (Kirby's Super Star and Kirby 3 are probably the best Kirby style platformers for the SNES, but I only have the first one.)

Alternatively, I'll mail you Kirby's Super Star if you donate $30 to one of those two Democratic candidates. (And I'll mail both of them for a $55 donation.) Shipping is free because the Ebay or Amazon conglomerates would charge me that much for commissions, and my total price is cheaper than what I've seen on ebay or Amazon. Fuck the capitalists, I want to make free college + universal healthcare or universal basic income happen. (Yes, I've become an ideologue who would rather spend my time screaming at Bernie Sander's enemies on, than to play video games. You can play these games, while politics will be my entertainment until Bernie Sanders wins, or dies trying.)


Eh nevermind, I think I should just sell them to be honest and volunteer for the Sanders campaign. Money isn't going to be enough to win the election.


I really wish Bernie Sanders would have won in 2016. He was screwed out of his nomination so bad. I'm honestly worried that he's just simply the "Ron Paul" of his party now.


Having to start doing this is making me sad. I just listed one of my rarest games online the other night. It's worth several hundred dollars and I know I'll never see it again in my lifetime. I just wish my kid was old enough to play it with me before it's gone.

Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

Oh i've used /ic/ quite a lot few years back. It's honestly a horrible place. And while they say they are harsh on people to give constructive criticism, frequently it's just bullshit. I understand not like someone's art, even if he's skilled. I do that too, but I never would shit on him personally. I wish a cozy place for art existed online, but nothing so far found. And I have no clue how I should advertise my own stuff. I don't even feel like I can because it makes me feel like an snake oil salesman

As a side note, I have a really cute story to tell. When I was posting my art to insta some (I assume) little girl liked my post, and she often visits my page to see what I've made. She also makes lots of cute fairy, witch and magic art and seems to have made a small clique of art friends there cause they like their stuff and tell themselves positive things. It warms my heart everytime I see it on my home page.



Creative projects like Densha Otaku (2ch) and Katawa Shoujo couldn't have happened on image boards today. Far too much has changed and are way too many assholes going to imageboards to crusade about politics for that level of collaboration now. The main thing 4chan is still good for is some kinds of anime porn.


Intrusive politics has almost ruined everything that's good.


I finally took this advice earlier this year. I feel much better already.

This thread is to remember all the sites that don't exist anymore, are inactive nowadays or went downhill.
I start with a site that was like a home for me, one that messed me up severely and yet the place I had the most fun with and the place where I found the greatest friendships I ever had.
Of course it was an imageboard, Krautchan to be precisely.
Known as the alternative to 4chan it was a mainly German imageboard, but also had a /int. I spent most of the time on /b which was truly as random as random gets. Thread 1 about the German videogame Gothic, thread 2 about Haruhi, thread 3 about drinking booze and talking about everything possible, thread 4 some circle wanking about Hitler, thread 5 someone asking about what to cook, thread 6 someone asking how to neet in Germany, thread 7 ranting about your job, and so on. It was so contradicting, people peacefully drinking beer with each other, posting pictures where they cheers to each other, to others telling you the usual kill yourself and whatever. Everyday was just so exciting to see what is going on now and I even found friends in the booze threads. Friends that turned out to be the best friends I had so far, friends that I miss dearly.
Unfortunately the entire site went to shit when less and less friendly threads showed up and those got invaded by the rude folk, having nice talks was impossible and moderation did nothing. In fact you got even banned when you said something about it. I didn't witness the last years of it because I took a break from imageboards for multiple years, then all the fucked up stuff there messed with my head. When I came back it was gone and my friends too.

I liked 8/atheism. It went downhill gradually as some /pol/ types came in and made it unpleasant, and eventually it bled members and died (like most of 8chan.)

I used to really like a small-midsize image board called Mewch, guess some people should know it. It was hated by some other communities but at its core was a nice place to comfy post share memes and simp for cute E-girls. I have yet to find a place to comfy post with as much activity and pph as Mewch, it was nice while it lasted even though it was not perfect.


All I remember about Mewch was one girl kept posting nudes of herself on other chans to try and get people to go.


I remember her. She posted on here too. I think she was greek.


Megamilk was a piece of shit and I'm glad a lot of the anons there turned on that namefagging son of a bitch.

I'm really nostalgic about older technology.

Let's talk phones, for example.
They were really high quality engineering masterpieces.
>High build quality, metal parts
>made not in China (in case of Nokia that was Finland)
>week battery life out of 900 mAh
>physical keys, so you don't swipe screen like idiot
>repairability. Nokia did supply schematics, with all test point signals and such.

What happened? Why modern devices are so inferior and, well, boring?


Modern devices are made to be disposable like their owners. The collapse of the Soviet Union unleashed 3 billion cheap workers. That's when this all started.


I've been back on Nokia for a few month. A really old one. It holds up well, and my mind is at peace.
No tracking, no notifications, no permanent internet.


Yep, nokias were rock solid compared to any modern phone.


Can't anymore now that they're banning 3g and forcing everyone to 5g. Which means more dead zones in rural zones because 5g doesn't travel as far and they won't bother to expand the network.
