AV cleaning kit, $4
When I choose to watch a TV show I’m not choosing to watch all those ads, nor am I always prepared to drop everything at precisely 8.30pm. Instead I set the timer on the VCR, watch my shows at my leisure - especially if there is a newborn in the house as there isn’t a lot on at 3am - and fast-forward the ads. This head cleaning kit represents my bid to keep the humble technology needed to do this in good working order, though sometimes, as I’m sitting there applying the scientifically-formulated alcoholic fluid, I do feel like a bit of a throwback. Fitting, I suppose, since the kit comes from an op shop with good stocks of Perry Como albums and a large assortment of Houndstooth apparel.
