It turns out that over the past two months Michael J has been spending an insane amount of time with Charlie, the proprietor of the antique shop that opened up in the strip mall where Press Play is located.

  • VHS LIFE: “PHANTASM III NON-VHS Video Commentary” -   This was supposed to be a VHS video commentary but unfortunately our source was in very poor condition. The way these commentaries work are we watch the VHS at John’s apartment and record our discussion as we watch. Then, back at Press Play, Michael J converts the VHS to a digital file, syncs the commentary up with it, and creates an MP4 file for release. However, due to the condition of our source VHS, the digitization process for PHANTASM III was unsuccessful. This is the audio file in which we talk and you hear the movie audio, so at least it’s something. You can try and watch with your own VHS copy or any other media format you own. Thanks for understanding and we’ll be back with our next VHS Video Commentary…PHANTASM IV: OBLIVION!
