what goes lurking under the bed

With the renovation of my room going on, it is inevitable that things would be moved around. Since my room’s wooden floor needed some major repolishing to match the citrus colors of the walls (didn’t get the Mediterranean sunset palette I first thought of), my bed had to be moved, too.

And as you know, things go lurking under a growing boy’s bed – not the Boogeyman or some geisha-faced-boy from that Japanese horror flick, Grudge – but things that make him, ehem, a man.

I have no idea, or have forgotten, that I have accumulated quite a stack of prurient VHS tapes, which have been left ignored and dusty all these years, thanks to DVD technology. Apart from that, those traditional prurient publications that proved to be handy in some occassions eons ago have also been unearthed.

And it is not exactly funny when your mom finds them out for you. Thankfully, my mom passed them on to me as if they were some old textbooks, neatly stacked in big plastic bags. Now I just don’t know what to do with them. I don’t even know if they could still run or if they’ve turned moldy that they could kill a poor, jurassic VHS player. I most certainly wouldn’t be bringing them with me when I move out, but it feels so wrong to throw them away just like that. I’ve put in so much money and research before I procured those. Yes, research. Research for a supplier, research to see if the movie’s any good and worth putting my money on. What to do, what to do?

While we’re on the subject, I was thinking of buying an external hard drive, with a capacity somewhere in the 100gb territory, to store recent movie downloads that are too big to be burned in CDs. I’ve been searching high and low for a Mac-supported software that could break my 1gb+ movie into two smaller movie chunks so I could easily burn them in two separate CDs and save some precious space from my rapidly-depleting hard drive capacity.

Darn those hung huge Active Duty movies!

P.S.
If you’re in Manila and would like to adopt my babies, please drop me a note. If you’re abroad and interested, you can send me money for shipping and they’re all yours for free! Given that you still own and operate the trusty VHS player we all once loved.
