Probably off topic: I have a "What Is Scientology" VHS

Post by d1684 » Wed Feb 09, 2011 1:38 am

Probably off topic: I have a "What Is Scientology" VHS from 1986. There's one scene in there where the "interviewer" (i.e. good Scientology zombie) asks Elron about the costs of Scientology to which Elron replies in true Orwellian fashion about some courses being free, and others "cost more". How much is more than free? A penny? A million dollars? lol. I don't think that quip is in the colorized version. Plus the video has a much more "cultic" feel about it. The opening sequence has a shirtless bust of Hubbard while Roman trumpet music blasts away. Then the zombie Scilon introduces the video and says how great L.Ron was. musician, philosopher, photographer, explorer (and apparently emperor of Rome from the opening sequence). That part isn't in the new color version either. :xenu:

If anyone wants it, I'll gladly send it to you. I don't have time or resources to digitize it.
"[If] anyone wants a monopoly on Dianetics, be assured that he wants it for reasons which have to do not with dianetics but with profit." —Dianetics by L.Ron Hubbard..who made $640 million dollars from Dianetics. Just a Coincidence.

Why on earth would you want to get rid of it? Upgrading to Blu-Ray? :wink:

I'll take it, if no one else wants it.

I still use VHS (gack! I know---old school)...but I have a very

difficult DVD player, so still haven't made a full change over.

Let me know, please.

Best :alien:

No, I just want someone to make good use of it, like soundbytes for YouTube. I have too many things to do already, and I figured someone here would know how to best utilize it. :wink:
