Re: throw away society/now Disney movies

Kitty: I am one of those people who collect Disney movies...tho' having
kids is just the excuse I use...when I was growing up we lived right
across the street from a movie theater that showed nothing but Disney
movies but we didn't have any money so we could never go...it was
torture!! I didn't see my first Disney movie until I was in nursing
school and Pinnochio was re-released into the theaters and I've been
hooked ever since. My kids tease me that the only reason I had them was
so I had a legitimate excuse for buying as many Disney movies as I do! I
suppose one of these days I'm going to have to break down and buy a DVD
player and copies of all those movies on DVD so I can have them for many
years to come.

Aren't you glad you didn't choose Beta? ;+)<br>I don't buy movies. I do
rent on occasion, but my main use for a vcr is to<br>tape shows I won't
be home to watch for later. When I buy movies for gifts,<br>the psople
that want them have DVD players, so it's not a problem. I
have<br>friends that collected every Disney movie tape so they'd have
them when they<br>eventually had grandchildren. But tape doesn't last
forever. Industry<br>standard under regular storage is 15 yrs. You'd
then need to copy them to<br>keep for another 15. Or, now I suppose they
could copy them to DVD.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message -----
