A whim craving to watch SPT Layzner which drove me to eBay where one of the few offerings were two LD Memorial boxes.
This was the push I needed to go ahead and order a LD player, a RCA to HDMI adapter and 2x 150USD LD boxes that will arrive at some point, COVID-19 willing.

That was yesterday and here I am today!

Though my collection is starting from scratch I have had some happy LD-experiences in the past.

A friend of mine had an LD-player back in the late 90s
Later in 2010 while I was in Japan for a semester abroad me and my dorm-mates got a nice collection going purchased from our local Hard-Off.
However while our intention was that it be left for coming generations, I would later learn that everything got carried back to Hard-Off.
Hopefully they inspired someone else later.

I already have a couple of purchases going with some good people in the shops but am also looking forward to just hanging around, as it's fun to have a community that is not rooted in contemporary culture.

Thank you so much for keeping the flame of media alive and specifically thanks the many excellent resources on this site!
