The batteries looked like motorcycle batteries and lasted about a half hour. Just the camera setup was about 45 lbs. of kit.

I also have a large collection of 8-track tapes, including Deep Purple's "Machine Head." I have SCSI cables up the yingyang for all my SCSI peripherals, and a few Magneto-Optical drives lying around, because we all KNOW those stupid CD-ROMs will never catch on.

How about your LaserDisc player?
