A Proposition: If any tape traders wish to put their collections online, I would be happy to share my web space with you. Just shoot me an email and I can set you up with a way to edit your pages whenever you want (just like I do). With the closure of GeoCities, I'm sure some of you have been caught by surprise.
Mr. City's TAPE and DVD Trading Post
Do you realize I've been at this for OVER 10 YEARS NOW? Wow, it escaped me that February 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of receiving my first trade! It's hard to say I've really been at this for 10 years, though, since I didn't really trade the last two years, but nevertheless here's a big Thank You once again to everyone I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Lately, though, I've been helping contenstants and their families locate copies of their appearances on shows.
A REALLY BIG LIST: Just so you know, this is not my collection: it is a searchable database of every TPIR episode produced since 1972. I made it to help catalog my shows with exact dates and production numbers, and I hope you find it useful too! (Season 42 updates will be made from time to time.)
MY TAPE LISTS:
Another update has been done on the new online database for my episodes as of 6/27; now there is at least a placeholder for every US non-TPIR episode currently in the catalog. The idea is that you will be able to browse and conduct advanced searches for episodes you are searching for. You'll also have the capability to see the information you want to see (like the contestant names), and hide the things you think might spoil the show!
- Episodes with next to them exist in digital form (on DVD or as a file). They can easily be put on DVD, Blu-Ray, or the Internet.
- The New Stuff list contains episodes from recently-completed trades or that I'm just now discovering in my own collection. Updated 9/9/12 with some really exciting stuff: Contains Spoilers!
- These are my Price is Right lists. Updated 4/20/13
Daytime TPIR - - Syndicated TPIR - -
756 daytime/special episodes of CBS Price is Right, with plenty more to come!
(If you have questions or problems using my TPIR episode search engine, please email me!)
- This is my Cullen TPIR list Updated 4/28/13 with some more detailed episode descriptions
- Below are my non-Price-is-Right lists, divided up alphabetically now: Updated 9/11/11
- The Joker's Wild Collection Became its own page on 4/6/08
- Non-TPIR list from A-L
- Non-TPIR list from M-Z
- This is a list of stuff, TPIR and non-TPIR, that I had with me at Northwestern University in Fall '05. Some of this stuff has yet to make it on the "official" lists.
- This is my Gameshow-Related Shows list Updated 3/29/08
- COMING Maybe in my next lifetime :-P The Non-Gameshow Show List - You like cartoons, or old newscasts? How about late-night talk shows?
- This is my list of shows filmed outside the US or Canada. Created 8/14/07
MY TRADING AVAILABILITY: BACK IN THE GROOVE - All settled in to the new place (or at least enough to trade). In an ideal world, I'd have gotten rid of the Gallery2 TPIR pages and gone back to my own super-simple HTML pages by now.
MY TRADING POLICY (Updated 8/16/09):
- POLICY #1: I WILL NOT cut original commercials from shows older than 1993. Period. End of story.
- POLICY #2: If it's at all feasible, please put only good-quality shows on DVD, and mediocre or less quality shows on VHS tape. There's a reason I have a $400 VCR that does video correction!
- I work a full-time job and do consulting and tinkering on the side. Please be patient with me; I'm a busy person.
- If you pick DVD-ready shows, the trade will still take me less time to complete. Otherwise, everything else can be dubbed in real time.
- I can put any episode on tape or DVD. Shows that are DVD-ready can be put on Blu-Ray discs as well, or I can also send episodes over the Internet in your preferred file format.
- If you want Win-TV, splitscreens, or voiceovers removed, I will require a trade ratio be put on those episodes in order to compensate for the significant time it takes to do those well. Otherwise it's just not worth the extra time I must invest.
- New: I've been doing this for a long time, and sometimes media degrades over time, especially when it's cheap. I'll let you know if I can't dub something for some reason.
