Reclaim Video Hauling, Episode 1

Tim and I finally started our VHS hauling video series that was planned out back in January, but never got off the ground. It’s understandable given we have been quite occupied with opening Reclaim Arcade and trying to keep up with Reclaim Hosting, which has been busier than ever.

But we did find an opening this week to go through the first of three boxes filled with VHS tapes (a very 1980s care package) that Dan Kinem has been sending our way monthly. Dan directed a documentary film about VHS collectors back in 2013 titled Adjust Your Tracking, and I had the good fortune of meeting him at the VHStival in Raleigh, North Carolina a couple of years ago. He is quite the collector himself and I bought a bunch from him at the festival. He mentioned he had far more at his home, but given my splitting time between the US and  Italy,—as well as a global pandemic—getting up to Northern Pennsylvania has been tricky to say the least. So on a lark I asked if he might be interested in sending me tapes via mail once a month, and I would then unbox them live and have fun seeing what craziness he sent along. Well, that dream has finally come to pass and Tim, as has proven the case for more 10+ years, proved to be an awesome collaborator (and boy do I have camera envy).
