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?
