Blogstalking: Movie night

Welcome to weezaflix! Would you like a tour of our collection today? Well of course you would, follow me please.

Here you can see the beginning of our embarrasingly large DVD collection, which begins with the first two seasons of Alias. Alias was a kickass show full of fantastic chick spy adventures and nail-biting, hit your husband in the arm cliffhangers. But alas, it sadly fell into ruin when they foolishly shelved the escapades in favor character development, realizing later that nobody wanted to see that.

These are just two box sets of many television show collections that no one in the weezalana household has ever actually cracked open, but somehow felt a burning desire to buy the moment they landed in the store.

Right this way please...

Here we have just a few examples of Hubster taste (and I use that word loosely) in film. No, you are not hallucinating - squeezed between the two fine cinematic features North by Northwest and Notorious, is in fact an actual copy of North Shore. Hubster is a strange experiment in duality.

Here we see another favorite of Hubster's that weezalana was unable to slyly toss in the Goodwill box when they moved - Hudson Hawk. weezalana still does not understand how this film made its way into the house. weezalana still does not understand how this film made its way into the theater. Lucky for Hubster, he'd already hooked the weez by the time he purchased this. It could easily have been a dealbreaker. Sadly, the Greatest American Hero lunchbox is not quite large enough to hide it.

Not to be outdone, weezalana does fully admit to lackoftasteitis as well. What's that? You can't see the archaic VHS copy of Danielle Steel's Star behind her Scooby Doo Mystery Machine?

Towards the end of our collection we have a handful of Disney movies on VHS that nobody watches because, well, they're VHS, but for some inexplicable reason are not lying at the bottom of the trash can, their gargantuan cases having been replaced with higher quality, thinner, less space hogging DVDs.

As you can see, several new DVDs have been stacked here due to complete lack of additional shelf space (DVDs being Hubster's equivalent of yarn stashing). Lying on top of this stack are two Netflix DVDs that will probably sit around for three months like the last two Netflix DVDs.

Pardon? Oh, no, they do not sit for that long because weezalana and Hubster are busy watching all of the other DVDs in their massive collection. There are only perhaps a dozen or two that the two ever actively watch.

Yes, they watch the same ones over and over again.

No, we do not understand why they keep buying them.

I love your collection! We have a vast collection too, and we watch maybe a dozen of them very frequently, most of them never even once. We don't understand it, either.

Yeah, when you watch a show for the kick-assedness, you don't want to get bogged down with too much chatter. Less talky, more punchy.
