Hit a Movie Collecting Goal Today!
« on: August 07, 2012, 02:33:11 AM »
With the package I got in the mail today I hit a movie collecting goal that I been looking forward to hitting for a while now! As of today I have just past 1,000 horror movies alone in my collection! There was 12 horror movies in the box of DVDs that I got today... and with those twelve I now have 1,008 horror movies in my collection!  :yahoo:

*sneaks in and steals 10 of them so that you no longer have 1,000*  :tease:
I have a collection.
It can be found here.
No need to check it often.
I update it only twice a year!


Never go to bed mad. Sleep on the couch instead.

There are a few broken branches in every family tree.

Congrats!

The bad news is: With all those TV-Shows you are watching you probably have about 800 of the Horror-flicks in your unwatched pile.
At least this makes sure that your forthcoming Horror-Marathon will reach a new All-Time-High.

 :cheers:

Have you accepted the fact yet, that you will never be able to watch all the discs you own...? It's what I overheard the other day from people talking about a similar topic, that a collector is eventually aware that he buys stuff to own, not necessarily to use :bag:

But then, sometimes I think it's like with an all-you-can-eat buffet: you're not supposed to get through all of it, t's just supposed to offer choice :D

That is actually how I have always looked at it from the very start.... it is about having the choice to watch something when I want to watch it. Not necessarily getting through every single title.

Having the choice of what to watch is how I look at it too.  And I like having movies that I've enjoyed so I can watch them again whenever I want.

Congratulations Pete!

Not me!  I've not watched everything I own.  But if I applied myself, I could easily fix that in a week or two.  Of course, as a result of that rule, my collection is probably much smaller than some folks.  :laugh:
