VHS Memories and What Nostalgia Means to Me

Cinemassacre is ultimately about nostalgia. Movies, games, retro topics, sometimes music. Everything I’ve loved in my early years, to the point of building little museums of nostalgia such as the Nerd room and the fake VHS “rental store”. But today I wanted to dive into different memories. VHS ones. Filming things off TV, my favorite VHS tapes, all that sort of stuff. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now.

This year, I’ll be making more videos like this, including movie reviews, gaming, various topics. For most of these, I will be going back to my traditional scripted format, where I write/organize what I’ll say, rather than doing it off-the-cuff like the podcast format. I feel I’m at my best this way. Unfortunately that means the podcast will not be continued. But Justin and Kieran will continue producing and editing. Justin will mostly be focused on Screenwave projects and Kieran is focused on his streaming channel.

    Absolutely loved this. Brings back memories of when I first went to a video store with my late parents and choosing a video to watch over the weekend. The Mom and Pop stores as you called them were simply the best, especially if you went there every week to pick a film and the people who owned the store would instantly get to know more about you and what you liked to watch.

    Thank you so much for bringing back those memories James, and really look forward to your next video

    Hey James,

    I just wanted to see if you’d please do an Angry Video Game Nerd review of 8 marbles 2X. It’s a PC fighting game, but not like any other fighting game you’ve probably ever played. The anime fighters in this game really know how to cut one loose with their special combo moves ;). I think a review of this game could actually top the review you did for Big Rigs Over The Road Racing. I hope you’ll consider making time to review this one of a kind fighting game.

    This warmed my heart so damn much. I’ve been with you since the beginning and everything you do connects with me in such a great way. Keep up the great work James.
