Tonight my VCR ate Tape 1 of The Sound of Music just as I was about to re-watch the scene when the captain hears the children singing for the baroness. Right after this, my VCR died and I think I died a little too. I love my VHS/DVD combo deal. It's been real good to me for the last 3-4 years. I guess that's about how long you can expect one of these things to last anymore. Boo hoo hoo!
