I did all the ordering of older movies for our customers also. But I worked for a distributer so I had to take home the movies/screeners we didn't watch at work. We had loads of older first print videos I loved taking those home. We would buy out the libraries of stores that were closing. I bought a lot of older videos in original clam shells.

I don't watch horror shows, yet I thrive on the bloodiest, scariest books - murder mysteries. I guess it's a matter of how much time they spend showing blood, explosions, etc., and how much time figuring who the bad guys are, why, etc.

I'm fascinated by the technology: DNA? Who woulda thunk it?

I have one VHS left...a copy of "Destination Moon." I will not part with it. But, at one time we had well over 800 VHS movies, because of buying them cheap at rental store closings.

I do miss the video store...but not the pay!

I have a much smaller collection of DVDs.

I got rid of the VHS when the last player died. I love being able to walk to my shelf and pick out whatever movie I want.

I had to see Beaches flying somewhere a long time ago. It's because of that movie that I will never watch a movie if Bette Midler is in it.
Just sayin'...
