Things that keep me awake
It's 1:55 am, and I'm wondering why, in the early days of video, it was thought necessary to disguise one's VHS tapes as leather bound books?
The faux novel storage cases were available in normal outlets like Woolworths and Timothy Whites, so they couldn't have just been for hiding porno, surely?
I couldn't find a picture of one of the boxes, but I did find this rather nice Philips top loader VHS Recorder with an analogue clock, just the thing for watching that uncut version of 'The Burning' your Dad rented you from the petrol station.
