Today marks the 2-year anniversary of me and my family finally getting into DVD. I knew about DVD coming before I knew my wife. When it was out and I explained the concept to her, she was all for it. Nevertheless, we waited until the market "matured". And we could investigate what we wanted. On Sept. 11, 1999 I went to Best Buy and, for $299.99, bought the same Panasonic A120 I have today, as well as our first DVD: Exorcist - Special Edition, which is still the only version we own today. We chose that title because...we'd never seen the film! I took it home to my wife, who had stayed home with our son, and hooked it up in our apartment to our 13" TV!!! Sharing it with 3 videogame systems! By the time 2 months later we had got in by mail the 5 free DVD's that went with the player (LiS, LW4, 6D7N, SG, SMom), we already had bought 55 DVDs! Two years later, in a new house with a 32" TV dedicated just to viewing (not playing videogames) we stand at the brink of a sort of landmark. Today we will purchase the 3 animated Tolkien movies and the 3 Dr. Who discs. These six discs will bring us to a total of 850 DVD discs! So 2 years, 850 discs, and $12,244.32 later (wow...we could have bought A CAR!) we find that the state of the DVD world has changed dramatically. But our love for the shiny little discs has not. And I wanted to take the time to thank all of you on-line, here at HTF, but also at sites like DVDFile, The Digital Bits, DVDTalk, DVDJournal, DVDReview, and VideoTropic for enhancing our enjoyment - AND our collection - over the course of the past two years. Long live DVD! ------------------ DAVE/Memphis Widescreen is Family Fun!
