Friday Happy Hour

Higgins has been on fire lately. First he sparked an engrossing conversation about which authors inspired you to read all their books. Then he asked what song you've listened to the longest, on repeat. These posts will make our greatest hits album.

BackToTheFuture.jpgLet's borrow from his bag of tricks and talk about movies. I had a decent VHS collection before the proliferation of DVDs, which came during my college years. Movies I've owned in both formats include the Back to the Future trilogy, Animal House and Tommy Boy. (My wife has replaced some higher-brow titles. And since the advent of Netflix, we don't buy many DVDs.)

Today's topic is this: which movies did you feel the need to re-own on DVD? And, as a follow-up, is there any film you've owned in any three formats? VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, HD DVD or Laserdisc. Or any formats I may be leaving out.

Go on. Chat it up.

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
