Isn't that "when we had VCRs"?

I haven't as much as seen any dusty old VCR for at least ten years. I haven't watched a movie on VCR tape for about 20 years. Most of my friends have ditched even their BluRay collections (and obviously DVD and CD as well) and rely exclusively on streaming services.

Every now and then I watch (on my PC, digitized versions of) either old family movies or analog born commercial movies. The image quality is so bad, by today's standards, that it is a pain. I watch them for one of two reasons: Either, they show my family, or the soundtrack has some great music.
