Hello there!

I'm from Finland and I've been lurking around a year or two or so. I've mostly checked out cover scans and read cool VHS stories.

I decided to register as I have something to ask from one of the members and I've planned to sell (or trade) some of my international tapes away so this might be a good forum for it too. I might write something every now and then but don't count in it. So far I've been satisfied in just lurking around. Perhaps that's because of my voyeuristic nature or something like that.

Anyways, I've been collecting entertainment in different forms for years and VHS tapes are one category of interest. I'm not really good at collecting some special things (such as a tapes from a certain releaser) because my interests seem to be changing monthly, if not weekly. One day I might be interested in everything about Bettie Page and have zero interest in VHS tapes and the next day I have zero interest in Bettie Page but go and buy a hundred VHS tapes from the basement of the owner of some old VHS rental place. Sometimes I'm just searching for magazines and sometimes just video games. And sometimes I'm collecting everything.

In movies I'm mostly interested in everything that has zombies, time travelling or nudity in it.

Hmm.... what else....

I collect old Finnish "exploitative" magazines such as Ratto and Nyrkkiposti. These magazines rely on shocking and tempting people. One page might have a shocking story of satan worshippers while the next page has porn.

For years I've had the mentality that I shouldn't sell anything I own but lately I've had enough money problems to change my views on collecting stuff. I'm a student (currently studying film making) and haven't got a job as I'm too lazy for that and as I've been getting a bit overboard with my collecting and spending my money on everything that's fun, I've had to think of other ways to get money. So, for a few months I've been selling some of my tapes and video games (I've sold some to a few of the fellow Finns here, I guess).
But oh well, you know how it goes... Sell stuff and end up buying even more stuff.

Let's do a "quick" list of my interests:
VHS & DVD movies
I don't care for Blu-ray or anything like that. It took me a while to even get used to DVDs.
I mostly collect horror, exploitation and adult films. In adult films I'm mostly interested in retro and vintage. I'm also interested in porn versions of "real" movies.

Video games
Right now my interests are Commodore 64, NES and Philips CD-i.

Finnish "shock journalism" and erotic magazines (mostly pre-90's).
International porn magazines (mostly retro and vintage).
80's video game, music and movie magazines.

C-cassettes although I haven't bought them much lately. I mostly collect 80's compilation cassettes that were sold at gas stations and have odd covers of Finnish and international songs. These cassettes sometimes had surprisingly "dirty" covers with some naked ladies on them.
I also collect CDs. Mostly heavy metal and 80's synth music. My special interest is heavy gospel bands from 85-95.

Also, if I'm walking around some flea markets or checking out some sale bins in stores and I see something that has something to do with nudity and everything erotic, I quite certainly buy it.

Perhaps this is enough.
