Lucy Lawless Appreciation Thread

I was. I traded for ECW, Japanese stuff and old WWF shows. I had things like fan made vhs compilations of Road Warriors matches and promos, the Bobby Heenan show and compilations of Sabu in Japan in addition to tapes of WWF satellite feeds with all of the uncut promo takes left in. I had stacks of tapes but lost most in moves. I was mostly watching this stuff when I did homework as a kid through college or watching with friends if nothing was happening that day. Old Saturday Night’s Main Events and Prime Time Wrestling were mostly put on when winding down for the night in high school and college as it was comfort television. Enough of my dork nonsense.

Cornette’s insight into the early tape trading scene is great, but not as compelling as Howard Finkel’s porn archives.

This is really fascinating to me. I already had internet access when i was a kid so this whole thing you just described is really foreign to me. Access to the internet is nice but it also has spoiled us and makes us appreciate things less. We all crave instant gratification now. It makes us appreciate things less and makes us take things for granted. Sorry, i’m rambling

Back then all that I wanted was instant access to stuff. I HATED waiting for things. Schoolwork was brutal because you never knew if the library had books needed for papers. We had the internet but it was mostly text, midi and photo based. The videos that were out there were really small and grainy. I remember downloading a grainy video the size of a postal stamp of New Jack doing a dive in ECW arena on the Public Enemy. Internet wrestling dirt sheet sites existed and were the same as they are now minus videos and podcasts. Before websites we used Prodigy, AOL and Compuserve. They were basically bulletin board service providers and had Usenet access. On those three services wrestlers had their own sections and you could exchange posts with them if they were computer savvy. Audio shows existed but the quality was mostly shitty RealAudio captures. O&A audio was like that prior to mp3s, listenable but not anything sounding like Redbook audio. eBay had counterfeit items and you could buy blood stained war memorabilia on there as they only blocked CP then. If you used AOL chat rooms in the 90s you would immediately be emailed or private messaged CP. Cumia always mentioned the 90s internet being the “Wild West”, but he really meant how much child pornography he was able to view without jumping through hoops of any kind. Online gaming was very basic unless you were doing LAN parties for most of the 90s. Piracy of games & software were so common that they couldn’t stop it, even console games. Almost all consoles had third party backup devices where all you needed were 3.5” floppies to get and share games. Comic books were better then by far than they currently are. There was no real airline security until 2001, you were wanded and if they did catch it you were good. The 90s were a great time to grow up in, you could get away with a lot of stuff.

When AOL first put out instant messenger it was the greatest thing. Chatting with girls from all over the world was the shit. Digital cameras sucked back then but you could share pics with people through email and then message them to ask if they received your cock picture. I saw a lot of bush as a teenager from that. I kind of miss the innocence of contacting people from around the world for the first time as it was so damned cool to talk with them about their culture.

I remember as kids me and my siblings all got around half a hour on the computer each day, and instead of looking for pictures of naked chicks i played Zoo Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon, i  was am such a loser.

Still remember every little thing about these games. Only years later i learned they were made by Ron Gilbert.

I hate when this gets bumped and I click here to say my number of the day guess. You guys really motherfucked me.
I don't even check the validity of the post. It could be a days-old Lynch video that "happens" to match someone's guess. "Look, I've been right seventeen days in a row!"

Dave's been motherfucking me lately, though. Genuinely.
