    Soooo. To make a long story short: My husband has been viewing some old VHS tapes from the 80's which include some embarrassing moments which I would rather not be seen. I have asked him to destroy the tapes and he refuses.

    Help. Need advice.

    Sincerely,

    Sick to my stomach in NJ

    Pay no attention. Your indifference will kill the buzz.

    I share your pain. I soooooo share your pain. My Mom digitized all our home movies.... and takes great delight in facebooking little 'memories' expressly for the torture of her children. What kind of Mom would do this? LMAO!

    Dear Sick to my stomach in NJ,

    Relax, you're in good hands. As you may or may not know, President Obama recently appointed me the Embarrassing Home Video Czar. As such I have far reaching authority over all of the nations many many millions of home videos, so I am here in your hour of need.

    Now, here's all you have to do. Wait for an opportunity when your hubby isn't around and then gather up all those cassettes full of random embarrassing moments and send them to me for review. Once I have screened each and every one of them I will issue an official Embarrassing Home Video Czar's Decree that informs your husband I have destroyed any segments deemed worthy of causing you any embarrassment whatsoever.

    Simply PM me and I will be happy to supply you the address where to send your tapes.

    Sincerely,

    EHV Czar and Executive VP YouTube, Inc.

    Thanks for making me smile.

    Here's the thing. It's not just about me. There are some shots of our good friends doing stuff that they would not want their kids to see and/or could damage their reputations. My husband thinks I'm being melodramatic, but he wants to put them on DVD. I don't even trust the kids at the video store.

    I may have to take a class on how to do it myself. Or accidently drop them in the toilet. Hmmmmm. What to do????

    This may be embarrassing to you now but when you're older and don't care you'll probably laugh at it!

    My grandparents have passed away and I wish I had more info about them no matter if it was good or bad or embarrassing. Believe me, your grand kids will get a kick out of it, and maybe even be proud of you for it.

    "Look at Grandma and Grandpa! They were so young and beautiful and full of life! Wow!"

    Don't destroy the tapes. You'll regret it. If it's that bad just put it away and will it to your family.

    They've been on VHS for more than twenty years and you slept just fine. Changing the media shouldn't give you angst.

    How much do you think your H will sell them for?

    :)

    I didn't know they existed! I saw them for the first time today. Hubby loved it. I nearly had a heart attack. He kept saying "Look how pretty you were" and all I heard was "My God What happened to you?" Lol
