DVD the new VHS

I finally picked up my own copy of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows today.  On DVD.  There are like no extras, just a short that basically says "this actor is playing this character"
And the sound is so damned low. 

Remember less then a decade ago, it DVDs were the big bad and the lowly VHS tape was the one with the bad sound and no extras?
I keep telling myself that I'm going to get a Blu-ray machine.  Every month, I tell myself this and it's been two years and I still haven't gotten one.

I'm looking now at the collection of movies I have been gathering for the last 25 years, and when I finally do break down and buy a Blu-ray machine, I dread the fact I'll have to start collecting everything all over again on Blu-ray.

Damn, I think I just outwitted myself...
