    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    My collection isn't a patch on many other members of this forum. But I think I would be surprised if there is a member of the HTF (who has a substantial disc collection) who hasn't gotten some attitude from family or close friends about said collection--especially in this day and age of...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    At least you learned it at a young age. I'm too old to do much about it. Although my thinning-out project is due to begin soon. :thumbsup:

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    That's an interesting article, Carlo...with a very interesting take on the topic. Although it might be better served in one of the threads on physical media vs. streaming. Personally, I'm hoping to do a complete overhaul of my collection in the next few months (a good winter's project!)...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    It surely speaks right to the point of the essay embraced by RAF (in the OP)! Thanks, Brent!

    Bill: If you haven't checked out THIS THREAD, Robert Crawford is one of the biggest noir fans on this site. If you don't want to wade through all 114 pages skip to the last dozen or so and you'll get the idea.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    This is from the OP of this thread: This is straightforward, yet it seems some members cannot help themselves...especially since I just tried to nip this in the bud a few posts ago. A number of posts (just above this one) have now been removed and members have been banned from further...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Sure. To each his/her own. There are, for sure, many people outside this hobby who would read this thread and not understand what the heck we're talking about. I would hope that they would not want to throw stones at us, just like we shouldn't throw stones at others. The point of this...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    :welcome: Kevin: That means a lot to us at the HTF! Hope you stick around and take part in our discussions. We've got a lot of Flicker Alley fans around here...and especially a huge fanbase of members who love old films. [ RAH (the self-proclaimed "old dude") continues to abide! :D ]...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I don't think I have much new to add on the subject, really. I get the question a lot. I used to get it more when I had most of my movie collection on shelves in our living room (where our HT is located). After we became empty-nesters, Peg convinced me to relocate my discs (both music and...

    The "old dude" liked his movies. And couldn't wait for the next new format to arrive.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I just found this quote in an old RAF post from 2002 in a thread about disc storage. He was going on about how he was storing his LPs, LDs and 4000 DVDs (at the time) when he realized this: :D

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Oh my gosh. I had forgotten about that! I think that's absolutely correct.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I realize that there are many newer HTF members who aren't familiar with RAF's legacy on the site. Robert died just about seven years ago. We created this thread to announce his death and gather as a community to remember him and all his contributions to the forum. Some newer members might...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    In the early days of the Home Theater Forum, moderator Robert A. Fowkes (RAF) posted an essay entitled "Why Do I Own So Many Movies? It's hard to believe, but that essay was written more than 25-years-ago...in 1992! But a lot of the ideas contained within are still valid for many HTF members...
