The VCR Is [Officially] Dead 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
The VCR is dead, dead, dead.

I feel like breaking out into a Bauhaus dirge: "The VCR is Dead"*

Magnetic tape reels in a black case
Back on the cutout rack
The VCR is dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Hollow-eyed black box
The VCR is dead
Undead undead undead
The virginal brides file past the tomb
Strewn with time code's dead hours
Bereft in deathly blue
Alone in a darkened room
Tape count
The VCR is dead
Undead undead undead

* With apologies to Peter Murphy and company, of course, for "Bela Lugosi's Dead." Okay, it was funny for about 30 minutes.
