Anyway I am much more looking forward to this documentary. This actually has VHS collectors and is much more raw.

Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector

Rewind This! has VHS collectors interviewed, I know more than one of them that are featured in the documentary. Sounds like you just wanna see collector's talk about their collections, and not learn about the history of the format...

Adjust Your Tracking is being made by the guys that run VHShitfest and are indeed youngins, born in 1990... So yes, it will be much more amateur and low-brow, but potentially still entertaining and interesting.

Although I saw a brief shot in that Rewind This trailer of a familiar tattoo that I didn't like. That "Never Forget" tattoo...the only person that I know who flaunts that tattoo like its a goddamn purple heart from Iraq is that douche bag running Massacre Video. Hey that's cool, he has plenty of time to model his ugly ink for this documentary, yet hundreds of people (including me!) are still probably waiting on fucking merchandise they ordered from this dickhead. Fuckin' A.
That is not Louis from Massacre with that tattoo. That is Zack Carlson, a now ex-programmer from the Alamo Drafthouse family. Lots of people have the same or similar tattoo. I have a VHS tattoo myself, which can be seen in the Tattoo thread.
