Collection Count

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

This is the first post-Christmas update, as I'm sure you could have guessed, and is also handily time for a four-weekly running time update. It's also the last update of the year, and, even though there's still a few days of 2014 left, I'm not expecting anything in that time... so let's also look at how things have changed this year.

Number of titles in collection: 1,719 [up 5 this week; up 75 in 2014]
Of which DVDs: 1,205 [no change this week; up 8 in 2014]
Of which Blu-rays: 514 [up 5 this week; up 67 in 2014]

Number of discs in collection: 4,303 [up 24 this week; up 184 in 2014]
Number of films in collection: 1,852 [up 3 this week; up 80 in 2014]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 6,452 [up 135 this week; up 354 in 2014]
Number of short films in collection: 438 [no change this week; up 32 in 2014]

Those are all smaller increases than during 2013 -- except short films, which is exactly the same. Bizarre.

And finally for 2014...

Total running time of collection (approx.):
311 days, 6 hours, and 59 minutes.

(Up 3 days, 21 hours, and 12 minutes from last month.)
(Up 15 days, 12 hours, and 9 minutes from last year.)

The very-high nearly-four-days increase is thanks to those 135 TV episodes, while the 15½ days increase is lower than last year's 19-day leap. So there.

See you next week, faithful reader, when it will be 2015. Happy New Year!
