Okay, it's official, ViCtoRia the VCR is ONLINE. This idea came to me in a late-night deep meditation. I was thinking: what can I do that's a cut above the rest? My Ancient Aliens review was a blast. Perhaps I could find something that would be a little less obvious. So, anyway, here it is. I got this RCA VCR on eBay as well as a few VHS tapes to test and I got started. Out of sentimentality, I am continuing the UFO theme with a two-tape set documentary called UFOs Miracle of the Unknown. It was more interesting than I had anticipated.

I started computing around the time that the Amiga crossed over into cult following--or so I learned when watching this. I've always had a casual interest in retro computing in addition to gaming. I even have an Apple ][ in my possession and have visited my share of BBS back in the day. I'd honestly never heard of the Amiga though until I checked out this documentary called Viva Amiga. Let's talk about it.
So, I've been wanting to sit down with this show and see what it was all about kind of recently when I was working on my space theme. If you're unfamiliar with the Ancient Aliens program from History Channel, let me explain it a bit--most likely you know of it though. The idea is to take a regular historical documentary, throw in a thesis that aliens actually had a major role in ancient civilizations on Earth, then sit back as an eccentric level ensemble of experts deconstruct your entire reality, and it is epic.
