I’m tinkering around Youtube last night watching misc woodworking videos and, of course, Norm shows up in one. I lean over to my wife sitting beside me and tell her how much I miss the NYWS and wish it still aired. She replies “I still have your tapes.” Huh, what tapes?
A decade or so ago I watched Norm every chance I got and recorded the NYWS on my DVR. Back then, DVR’s didn’t have the capacity they have now though and I was traveling extensively so my wife would burn the episodes of the NYWS onto VHS tapes for me so her ‘stories’ had room to record on the DVR. Well, she never threw the VHS tapes away! What a gold mine. I pulled out the first tape last night and started the process of burning them onto DVD’s. The quality is not the greatest thing in the world, but it’s still Norm. It looks like I know how I’ll be spending my next few days. Just wanted to share my rare stroke of good luck with the LJ community, I’m sure there’s a Norm fan or two on here.
