True...unfortunately, that number translates to other areas of one's life as well. Please note I am speaking solely for myself here and not judging anyone.

When your number gets as high as some of us (approximately 5000 total for me Blu-ray + DVD combined) and I have hundreds of others I haven't even bothered to log yet and now probably never will, you start to think about how much time in your life you spent researching, deliberating, purchasing movies and what else you could have done with all that time instead had it not been so obsessively important to you for whatever reason to constantly acquire more movies...always more. Talking with loved ones, just hangin out with your lovely bride, walking in the woods, watching a beautiful sunrise/sunset, reading a great book, volunteering to help out others less fortunate than yourself, etc.

Just one of many things that are rapidly crystalizing for me after a recent long string of tests and some grimly focusing medical exams/surgeries/biopsy results.

There is something to be said regarding everything in moderation in life vs. focusing intently on only one thing that makes you happy (or you think makes you happy).

Just one man's recent perspective.

Opportunity Cost - not a new concept. Don't know how old you are, but it sounds like your mind is trying to tell you that the cost you've incurred is too high ( 5,000 IS a mind-boggling number ). Perhaps it's time to sell off a bunch or donate to your local library, you know, open some windows, find some new roads. I know my collection (maybe a mere 1,100 discs) is a demanding mistress - but aren't all obsessions? First World problems, who says they aren't a b*tch? Good luck finding balance, pardner, or at least some good sturdy shelving.

I've gone from 1391 to 1355 in a month.
It's funny - it's like for every 5 new releases I get, I trade in 6 or 7. I'm also kinda falling out of love with big box sets and thinking of trading in/selling those to get the standard Amaray editions of some of them.
KINDNESS IS NOT DIFFICULT

There are people on this site that have no other joys in life, but to [try to] make you angry. Don't let them.

With 250 Criterion releases plus an otherwise good taste in other releases, I think proud would be right.

Good response. Handled very well. Still, the original post wasvery depressing, and it certainly got me thinking. But then again, I'm not that old, so I've got a lot of time to think this over

Just realised that i've gone past 1000. 1030 to be exact.

There's still so many more releases i need to get

And now that I've got a region free bluray player, i think it's only going to grow my collection more.

I have officially crossed the 1000 line. It took me 6 years to get here, with my first pair of Blu-rays being Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. #1000 ended up being the 1935 version of Mutiny on the Bounty
