Home Cinema

Well where did it all start then? I'm not actually sure to be honest. I remember buying a JVC micro CD system when I was about 17 years old. It was my first ever CD player and I was chuffed to bits but I also knew the time had come to treat myself to a new TV and VCR. I knew absolutely nothing about what was the best way to go here so I took a trip to the local Clydesdale store in Motherwell for a look-see. Now when you're totally ignorant about such things, all these things generally come across as being the same sorta shiny toys! In the end I walked out with a Toshiba VCR and 14" portable TV both of which cost me approx £600 believe it or not. Roughly £400 for the VCR and about £200 for this appartently top quality portable TV.....well I was young and daft afterall!! Anyhoo, I loved my new set up but I still had this little niggle in the back of my mind telling me it wasn't good enough.....I needed something with a little more kick behind it and then one day (bearing in mind my complete ignorance of ALL THINGS electrical) I was having a look at my little micro unit stereo and I noticed two plug holes at the back of it and remembered that my video had the same sorta plugs at the back of it aswell.

An Introduction to The Polsnulspace Blog....

Obsession, passion or just plain lunacy? Thats just a few of the words I've used when attempting to describe my movie based collecting habits over the past few years. What is at the heart of my collecting, you ask? Well As I've just said,its movies! Movies, movies and even more movies! This Blogamatron is a means to share with anyone who is interested, the story of my enjoyment of movies. From the early days of VHS, discovering I could link my VCR to my stereo, going Pro-Logic, Big ass Laserdiscs, going digital for the first time and then right through to the present day of home cinema, prop replicas and screen used props and both limited and rare DVDs.
Its been an interesting journey over the last 17 years or so and it has cost me a bloody fortune but funnily enough, that doesn't seem to be putting me off and there seems to be no end in sight. Anyhoo, have a wee look-see through my blog and see what I've been doing for what seems to be forever and a day.....Enjoy!!!
