Collection Count

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

Except for last week, when I was away from home, so this actually counts the last fortnight -- all the more Blu-rays to factor in to the monthly running time update, then!

It would've been a big week by any measure, but when you add in the week before as well... Well, there were 12 additions to my collection this fortnight (so much for "11 additions by the end of May"!), including one BD-to-BD upgrade, as well as the Ultimate Edition of Peter Jackson's King Kong, a single two-disc set that replaces the content previously held across three titles and seven discs(!)

And what all that jiggery-pokery does to the numbers is...

Number of titles in collection: 1,969 [up 8]
Of which DVDs: 1,186 [down 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 783 [up 11]

Number of discs in collection: 5,041 [up 17]
Number of films: 2,173 [up 11]
Number of TV episodes: 7,697 [no change]
Number of short films: 531 [up 1]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
372 days, 14 hours, and 42 minutes.
(Up 1 day, 8 hours, and 7 minutes from last month.)

Despite the mass of titles this fortnight (and a busy week last time, too), that's actually the smallest running time increase for six months!

See you next week, faithful reader.
