Sometimes when I see stuff from 80/90's it makes me wonder how many people experimented with acid:)

"Experimented"... we didnt exactly have lab coats and clipboards. :) I started using a Toaster to VJ raves, but soon switched to using a lightweight WJ-AVE5 Mixer. Hallucinogens seemed a requisite among those doing the most interesting things with this gear back then.

I remember how impressive was Rundgren's use of LW in this from '93 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxW4U-SOqN8 The demon creature was particular cool when no one was making very organic stuff, and was mostly nerdly spaceships then.

Herbie Hancock, U2 and Oingo Boingo (Dany Elfman) also associated with Toaster use.

lol, that Todd Rundgren video (seriously cool in its day - before all the 3D animated movies by far) and Penn Jillette and Wil Wheaton (or was it actually Kiki?) almost got me to buy a toaster system back then. Thankfully, I just ended up holding out until LW 4.0 for Windows came out and didn't need the toaster hardware at all... I may even have like a 15minute VHS demo from newtek laying around somewhere...

I loved my digi-view. When I discovered I could scan the red filter, then shift the camera over an inch to the left and then scan the green and blue to make a 3D image I went crazy. I think I had over 100 images done in 3 days. ahhh simpler times :)

The Will, Penn & Kiki :heart: demo still gets me excited... Ken Nordine's voice alone would compel me to buy... mmmm, lens flares! :rock:

I've stared mesmerized and depresstalgic at that a few times this week. They beat me to it. I've got hundreds of VHS filled with forgotten TV from 1980 on, that I have no use for. Btw, can anyone recommend a very good quality, easy-to-use, VHS-to-DVD recorder? I have never found one that is well reviewed.

Thanks for that post. I never knew how much I missed that video and how much it excited me as a kid. I also totally forgot about Tony Hawk. And of course, remember digging that Kiki was hot and knew how to use the toaster :p

As for your VHS rips. I used a Sony DSR-11 and digitized NTSC or pal VHS tapes straight into premiere, it's hardware encoder to dv was really nice. And then rip from there. I guess you could go direct to mpeg2, but I didn't find any noticeable loss this way and the video looked great with the Sony...
