Oh man, we saw some incredible footage last week from “Industrial Musicals,” a collection of Broadway-style corporate presentations from the 50s, 60s and 70s archived by our friend Steve Young. We may try to bring some of this footage on the road this year but in the meantime check out recordings of GE’s “I’ve Got A Wide Range of Features” and American Standard’s “My Bathroom.”

Over in Germany (maybe we’ve got that wrong) is a German graffiti artist who’s been collecting and showcasing a very important collection of audio cassette tapes and sharing them with the world over at Tapedeck.org. Last week, Gizmodo did a nice spotlight on the site. The piece starts, ”It’s hard to remember a time where our musical picks weren’t contained in a Spotify playlist.” No it isn’t. No it isn’t.

Read the Gizmodo store here and enjoy some of these pics, courtesy of Tapedeck.org.

Last night, Found Footage Festival played the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee and guess who was there? Tom Lewandowski of the Tom Lewandowski Show featured in our Volume 7 DVD! Tom is our all-time favorite high school talk show host. What an honor it was for us!

If only we knew whatever happened to Neil Duda…

In honor of our Volume 7 show in Miami, we commissioned Jacy Catlin to make a poster for us. Couldn’t be more thrilled with the results!

Contains the episode where Mike and Boner get offered cocaine at a college party. Score!

Been in the UK two weeks and I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface of British VHS. These tapes are a good start.
