Today I realized that since I moved almost three years ago I hadn't watched a single laserdisc in my collection. So I boxed up 30 of my LDs, hauled them off to my local Half Priced Books, and traded them in for a paltry $35. I kept the player (I figure I can craigslist it eventually for a few bucks) and a handful of LDs that I have framed for their cover art (Star Wars faces and various Criterions) but everything else is gone. The once rare widescreen Dragonslayer and Young Sherlock Holmes discs, those glorious DTS titles, widescreen versions of The Shadow and Innocent Blood that put the DVDs to shame, the theatrical cut of Last of the Mohicans, Matinee with the Mant short feature, etc. Fortunately I got into LD well after DVD so I never paid much for the discs I had. The best part of the story? I traded in LDs and bought HD-DVDs -- one dead format swapped out for another. The store had a bunch of clearance HD-DVDs for seven bucks a pop so I couldn't resist. I guess in a few years I'll be starting another thread just like this one entitled "My farewell to HD-DVD."
