How Many Disney Movies Do You Own?

I love to see Disney movies, but I don't own many -- we just don't watch that many movies at home! eek But I know some of you guys are collectors, so I'm wondering if you own lots of movies, or if there are any mysteriously missing from your collections!

Mrs T collects the animated movies and currently has over 30 (around 60 to go), we have a few live action movies too.

I always go through this process:

Let's go rent a movie.
You know for the cost of renting it I can practically buy it.
Then I'd have to move it the next time we move.
Maybe I'll just see what I have recorded...

Are DVDs particularly heavy for you? silly

Maybe they're on Betamax; Laser Disc could be a pain to move too sarcastic

Funny guys! waiting

I just don't like amassing possessions, the things you own, own you, or something like that. If you wind up with a big DVD collection that's one more thing you have to deal with.

Amusingly, one of the things I've had to rid myself of was a GIANT, HEAVY early version of a BetaMax machine. I'm not sure if it was professional or just a really early version of a VCR, but it was literally too heavy to move.

A work collegue once said to me than he prefers to spend his money experiencing things rather than amasing posessions. He theory is that posessions can be taken away, but he will always have the memories of the experiences he's had.

You almost never regret making a memory. You almost always wind up throwing away things you buy. Plus just toting all those things around is a major hassle.

That's sage advice. I'm not huge on 'stuff', but there are some things I do buy because I get an awful lot of use out of them. I used to buy DVD's, but I have learned better. Now we have Netflix and use it constantly. Works out much better for us, especially now that you can watch movies directly on your TV (or in my case through your gaming console).

Many television studios (and the like) still use Betamax.

He'll have the memories as long as those experiences aren't at La Cava del Tequila laugh
