You're right, dude, that is sad. Great story, though! I felt your pain quite keenly.

I wonder about those poor souls who got caught in the middle of the transition from VHS to DVD. You've got a stash of tapes with entire seasons of TV shows stored away in them.

How do you cope with the fact that DVDs offer more storage space than analogue tapes?

Or that the transition from physical media is all but complete?

It’s a brave new world soldier.

Yeah, that is true. I still like the tactile nature of physical media, though.

You and me both. The only time I ever purchase digital media is if it's the only option (or if it's a book in the public domain that I know I'll pretty much never find scouring bookstores high and low). There is something really special about looking at your shelves and seeing your collection. Even more so, there's something special about taking something off your shelf and giving it to a friend.

Plus box sets look really cool on your shelf! There's something satisfying about owning a complete series on DVD or Blu-ray, in my opinion.
