Friday Finds: How Do We Top Last Week? Edition

Friday Finds

It’s called a Video Home System cassette- apparently, there was a time when you couldn’t watch any movie in the universe by tapping into an amorphous system of interconnected computer networks. You had to actually go to a “movie store” and “rent” a “VHS tape” which you would then have to physically stick into a Videocassette recorder.

This particular cassette contained the 1982 movie Blade Runner, which looked ahead to the dystopian year 2019, when genetically engineered “replicants”, ordinarily relegated to menial work in space, were sneaking around Earth and being chased by Blade Runners. How prophetic!
