vhsnest (Carson Ball)
It's almost February and we are feeling the love! We sit down with Carson Ball, a collector and media junkie and the man behind @vhsnest on Instagram and boy do we have some questions for him. How much would you spend on a VHS tape? For real? And do you hate The Goonies as much as Ben does or do you just love the Oregon coast too much. Do children in horror films give you the willies and scare you more than slashers? It's all for you Damien on this months episode of VHQUEST! Please join us on February 11th for our Valentines TapeGod Tuesday! Join us in celebrating our truest TapeGod at this VHS, physical media, and all things vintage market hosted at Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar on Capitol Hill, Seattle. 6-9:30pm. Bringing tapes to swap is encouraged and don't forget to tip the bartender.

Ben + Mike: Summer Recap
VHQuest hits Season 2! We are stoked for what the new year has in store for us.  This month, Mike and Ben share their summer finds and catch up after the long break. We dive into some odd tapes and how to find them, and bring it back to the christian tapes at your grandparents house. For some of us, a new season means finding a new place to live, and we all have felt the pain of moving all those boxes from under your bed. We recap on some of the latest VHS news, including an oddly costumed human putting odd objects on suburban doorsteps. Pop in that second tape because Season 2 starts now.

It's our season finale! And we wrap up our summer with great tapes and a great guest. We chat with local Washingtonian Jeff Glinski, lamenting the downfall of video stores and reminiscing on our first R rated sleep-over movies. What was yours?

D (Rewindtime1984)
We travel to Spokane, WA to talk with our friend D, and while his cat meows into our mics, and a WWF tape plays in the background, we talk about bootlegging, a church fire, and the 1998 classic "What's Wrong with Cherry?".  And why should never get pulled over with a trunk full of bloody melons. We rewind time with this month’s VHQuest! *We realized that when we said Matrix Reloaded we actually meant Matrix Revolutions. Forgive us.
