I just came across a site in which you can order dvds and VHS tapes of old commercials. Lionel has put a ton of effort into archiving and preserving old commercials. At one point he was looking for some old commercials and really couldn’t find anything good. So then he started trading and buying high quality videos of old commercials to sell on the web. These old commercials will bring you back to yourt childhood. I only wish I could find an area on his site to view some samples. It seems like a very unique idea. Some commercials are really well done and they are only on TV for a short period of time untill they disappear. I always wondered where these classic commercials went to. Apparently Lionel took them. http://www.80scommercials.com/ There are old toy and electronics commercials. Aslo lots of candy and food commercials.

It can be a huge hassle trying to find a safe way to get rid of old electronic parts and accessories. It also can seem like such a waste tossing out used ink cartridges, old CD’s and video tapes, etc… We are in an age where we go through electronics very quickly because the technology advances so rapidly.
There are various new companies that can recycle and reuse these materials. GreenDisk.com offers lots of options for recycling. You can send them your recyclable items yourself or they can mail you a box. They even sell the recycled items they make like Cd’s and cases.
They can recycle
* CDs & DVDs, diskettes, and their cases
* Video and audio tapes and their cases
* Inkjet and toner cartridges
* Cell phones, pagers and PDAs
* Cords, cables, mice, printed circuit boards
* Computers, monitors, and peripherals

Crafty people can find all kinds of great uses for old video tape. I found some great tutorials on how to make bookends using old cds and vhs tapes. By stretching VHS tape you can use it for designing bracelets and creating flower and other designs to use for decorations. There are so many old VHS tapes going to waste and this seams like a great way to reuse some.

Some bored High School students found 3,000 blank vhs tapes and decided to put them to good use. They set up the vhs dominoes to run all through the auditorium up and down stairs and all around the halls and some classrooms. The video is on YouTube. I couldn’t imagine working hard on that and then accidentally bumping into one and destroying everything. Hopefully that didn’t happen too many times.

A VCR mail slot seems like it would be great for any Netflix subscribers.

I found this over at Instructables. It seems like a great idea making an old favorite VHS tape into an external hard drive. Credit card info and personal data could easily be hidden from burglars. The LED light looks cool too. VHS External Hard Drive

This may be more elaborate than the average person can construct, but it’s still worth pointing out. Intstructables contributer, lemonie, has come up with a nifty solution for what to do with his old VCR… turn it into a toaster. On this site, you can get a full description of how he did it.

Want a giant new high definition flat-screen television? I know I’d be more likely to make the switch if they looked more like the sets for sale at New Era Antiques.
