Note To Hollywood: How To Get People To Switch To Blu-Ray by Helen O'Hara
(from Empire States...)
Kinda what it says on the tin, plus general pros & cons of Blu-ray -- from the perspective of "actually buying and watching it", not all that theoretical "5x better picture" stuff you normally here. Loads of comments; some are stupid, as ever, but some are good, particularly #115.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

This week, a larger increase than usual these days, due to a fair few cheap DVDs from in aid of acquiring their limited 20th Century Fox book.

The book itself doesn't show up on my "outstanding orders" page. Still, it should turn up before the month's out; I'll try to remember to let you know if it does in a future update.

Meanwhile, in the running time, two recent Complete Series sets give it a nice big boost.

Number of titles in collection: 1,182 [up 7]
Of which DVDs: 1,094 [up 6]
Of which Blu-rays: 88 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 2,892 [up 8]
Number of films in collection: 1,246 [up 7]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,045 [no change]

Statistic of the week:

Total running time of collection (approx.):
202 days, 9 hours, and 18 minutes.
(Up 5 days, 2 hours, and 5 minutes from last month.)

See you next week, faithful reader.
