 2012 Three Stooges NYE Marathon
We decided to stay in since we're skiing on the 1st and watch the Stooges marathon on Ch 38. The highlight this year was the gangnam style montage of the Stooges just after midnight. It was really funny! I'm sure someone will post it on youtube in the coming days.

Happy 2013 to all!

I wound up watching it off and on, too.

Even though I have all of the Stooges shorts on DVD, there's still something comfy and RIGHT about lazing on the couch on New Year's Eve and watching them on TV-38. It used to be such a thrill to watch the marathons as a kid, several blissful hours of the Stooges, hoping they'd play your faves. I love the fact that 38 still runs them on the weekends, 70-year-old comedies still as much fun today as they were when I was a lad.

I caught a good chunk of the marathon too. Unfortunately we missed the special montage. I came THIS close to picking up the Stooges box set when Amazon had that insanely low sale price, but managed to show some restraint. Of course that was probably partially because I had just dropped ninety bucks on the "In Search of..." set.

Last I heard, Best Buy had the set for between $30 and $40 just before Christmas.

Wowzers.

Shut up Mark! It was all I could do to NOT buy it from Amazon. You're an enabler, you know that? :wink:

I believe that my superpower is the ability to induce others to spend money.

You could make a lucrative (if evil) career out of that! You should work for Wal*Mart or Target as a "selling consultant" or something!

I prefer to think of it as helping the economy.

"My Life As A Shill", available soon at B. Dalton Bookstores.

I missed this year's Stooges marathon (I was sick with the flu and in bed by 9). I do have the third, fourth, and fifth marathons on VHS tape, but I don't even know the condition of those recordings. The third marathon has to be about 25 years old by now. How long is a VHS recording supposed to last? I should pop it in the player and find out.

My earliest VHS tapes date back to 1983 and the quality is still very good. It really depends on the type of tape that you have. Mine are mostly RCA tapes which I took from my dad's appliance store back in high school. He wasn't too pleased since they originally retailed for about $25 each. I also have a bunch of the RCA Video Discs, which will probably be headed to the trash soon.

The 2012 marathon was on my DVR which crashed a few days later. Sometimes technology bites you in the a$$.
