    Thanks to Fox in California, my 1000th DVD was none other than the 2nd disc in this double-disc set!
    Woohoo!
    My 1001th disc was my autographed copy of John Landis' An American Werewolf in London, so that makes it even more special! [​IMG]
    I'm already up to #1006 (Startup.com)...only 8994 to go!! [​IMG]

    Congratulations, Dana!
    To put that total into perspective:
    1001 DVDs times 2 hours each DVD equals 2002 hours of watching movies (not including the extras). Or, to put it another way, 2000 hours is roughly equivalent to working a full-time job for one year! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    That's a LOT of DVD watching, my friend! [​IMG]
    Congrats!

    As for the bad rap about the characters--hey, I've seen space operas that put their emphasis on human personalities and relationships. They're called "Star Trek" movies. Give me transparent underwater cities and vast hollow senatorial spheres any day. --Roger Ebert on The Phantom Menace

    Thanks, Tom.
    Pretty soon, this will be followed by my post count (I'm up to 908 with this post)!

    $18.10 per...a bit higher than others' averages, but still far below MSRP!
    Got 7 more today below $100, so the average will go down more.

    It warms the heart to know that someone out there has a collection worth the value of a really nice automobile!

    Start with a modest purchase of a DVD player and 4 DVD's in November of 1997. Stir in a healthy dose of DIVX fear to kickstart the buying spree. Add a healthy dose of disposable income, and a pinch or two of 800.com sales, a dash of buy-4-get-1-free deals, and a sprinkling of $20-off coupons...and, most importantly, make SURE to remove any trace of WFG (Wife/Fiance/Girlfriend)! Mix well over four years, and voila! A 1000 DVD collection any enthusiast would be proud of!

    LOL!! I still gotta work on that income thing (I'm paying off my Sony WEGA KV-32FV27)...as well as the DVD buying thing. But at 25% off retail at Ken Cranes DVD Planet (I live only 10 mins away), I should resume my previous habit of buying 10 DVDs a month! If I get another raise maybe I could increase that to about 20 DVDs a month!! [​IMG]

    Well-the disposable income and WFG factor are the key elements here, I think. I have a bit too much invested in my hardware right now. My wife has sort of given up on curbing my DVD purchases though.
    Dana-we are moving at roughly the same pace. I purchased my first DVD player in December 1997 and about 36 away from the 1000 mark...but I don't have the digital camera you had at Scooter's.
