Well, the Ready to Wear videotape seems to have really fouled up my VCR. It won't play, record, rewind, fast-forward, or even eject the tape that's in it now. No more time-shifting for me. And I find that the only things I'm really going to miss are Angel and The Daily Show. That's something; I don't appear to be quite as addicted to TV as I thought.
Still, a VCR rockets to the top of my Christmas wish list.
