No, it doesn't burn when I eat peas. I hate peas.
At what point in movie-collecting do you stop? Between the DVDs I’ve bought, movies I’ve recorded off of cable, movies people have given me, and movies I’ve downloaded (all unavailable through any other means, of course), I have more films than I will be able to watch in a lifetime. And then there’s all the films available for streaming. And all the movies I’ve never heard of or have yet to come out. I have broken all these titles down into these categories: the movies I can’t wait to watch, the movies I am too excited about to watch*, the movies that I dread watching, and the movies that I know I’m never going to watch. So if I quit my job or get laid off (and never work again), I might have time to at least get through the first two categories. I may have to consult with my wife about those options.
Obviously, I am a compulsive collector when it comes to films. Instead of buying myself horror figurines, posters, or other memorabilia, I put it all towards getting more titles. Hmm, I guess I buy a lot of books about horror movies but that’s just another way to find out about more titles. Oh shit, I just remembered. There are all those TV shows I own and all those Anime series. Man, I hope I live for 200 years.
*Do any of you have this problem? I get a movie in the mail and my feelings of excitement and anticipation are almost unbearable. And yet, I put the movie in its new home on my shelf and watch something else.
