Kinder-Gallery:: The Fine Art of Vestron CEDs

February 23rd, 2017 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

Now I might be kind of obsessed with VESTRON flavored SelectaVision CED cartridges. I’ve always appreciated a good CED (Capacitance Electronic Disc) as a decorative wall hanging (I’ve got a few like the often paired together EVILSPEAK, POPEYE and CRUISING) but the VESTRON type takes the coolness to a whole new level on account of it features that groovy futuristic rainbow stripe framing device (kinda like the side of a KEY VIDEO VHS tape)! Here, allow me to share some fine examples I scrounged up (mostly) on ebay…

    Very cool! Wonder if they fit into those LP picture frames. That eroticise is the best! I remember the first video store in my hometown played some steamy aerobics tape on a projection screen. It was quite something back then.

    Yeah the rainbow border is very late 70’s early 80’s. I think disco popularized that. The 80’s grid put an end to that nonsense… Thanks Black Hole…

    If you Really wanna geek out on CED check out TECH MOAN on Youtube. He’s this historian
    of consumer technology, especially obscure formats. CED pretty much gutted RCA.

    Tomb,

    Haha I had to include that stunning Eroticise cover! That reminds me of the famous Aerobicise show that is features in Friday the 13th 4! They used to show that show and a half hour of music videos every morning one summer on a local channel- probably (1981?).

    I now I had a navy blue sweater that had that rainbow stripe across the chest back then. It also reminds me of the arm band from the Buck Rogers TV show. I think during this time period there was a great collision between that sparkling-future-disco thing and that grimy-grind house-sleazy thing. It’s such a cool combo!

    Thanks for the tip on TECH MOAN I will check it out! I see there is a video on music cassette tapes and I love those too! I wish I had the money to buy all of these CEDS… I’m going to add images as I find them too.

    I kinda get the feel of the rainbow sweater. I’m west coast, styles were still regional

    It was much like that sweater! It’s for people who are surfing and skiing on the same weekend!

    The Black Hole has brought only joy into this world. I love that movie so much especially that opening theme! It’s always in my head!!

    Hail the green grid!
