I never use netflix. But since its on DVD, I'm sure I'll just buy it sooner or later.

Im curious why you dont use Netflix? Why would you spend $20 on a DVD you may or may not like? I tend to buy things that I want/enjoy but I rarely buy something that I haven't seen before. Do you have something against Netflix in general or are more into owning things than borrowing?

For what its worth, when it comes to books, Im always buying. Even though I have a library card I seldome use it, as Id much rather own the text...

Nah, its not netflix in specific I have a problem with. I just like owning rather than renting. It started out years ago, when I realized that it was easier to just buy a video tape than rent it since inevitably I'd return it late and stack up late fees.

This is of course, not a problem for netflix, but over time I found that I really like having a library of movies. I don't like having to plan my movie watching around what has come up in my netflix queue. I much prefer to just buy a ton of movies and watch them when I get in the mood to. For instance, I bought "This Film..." a couple weeks before I got around to watching it, whereas the movie "Crank" I bought months before I got around to watching it.

I definetly get the appeal of a personal library. In fact when Ive been looking at houses out in the South Hills I keep visualizing 'well, heres where I can put the library, etc'. Although sometimes it can get a little overwhelming just the vast amount of stuff you can accumulate [for me its the thousands of comic books, hundreds of japanese wrestling tapes, hundres of books etc] and I keep thinking is it worth keeping this stuff [and sometimes being tied down to it] or should I just purge it all, just keeping the stuff I really want?

Plus the things with DVD's--I see enough films in the theatre, plus whatever's on the cable and such, that Id much rather just keep those films that I know I want to see over again, rather than just buy something on a whim that I might just watch once and then file away...

understandable. They certainly get unweildy at some points. But we all have our addictions. That is mine.

I hear you on the personal library space. I just put up a new bookshelf and still have piles of books blocking other books.

I keep a lot of my less accessed things in storage in the basement. It's a non ideal solution, but what is one to do?
