I get more annoyed with damaged dvd covers than with scratches. I don’t know why, but I’m obsessed with covers. I go into a deep outrage when I buy one of those damn Warner Bros snapper cases and tear off the cover when trying to remove the sticker. I even re-purchased the same friggin dvd cause of this. Scratches don’t bother me that much if there are only the occasional one or two and if the dvd is still playable. I mean I’ve rented some dvds that had the surface full of a thousand scratches and they still play perfectly on my player.
Haha, I’m exactly the same. It takes me like half an hour to open the plastic wrapping they use to cover DVD cases. Why the fuck do they make it so hard to open? The bastards!! I have to be extra extra careful not to damage the DVD case. After buying all these DVD and opening that many see-through plastic covering, I still haven’t managed to figure out the best way of opening them.
Once, I bought Apocalypse Now Redux on DVD. Anyway, I was in love with it (Well I’m in love with all except one or two of my DVD’s). So I was being very VERY careful not to damage the case. Well as usual I was having trouble trying to remove the plastic cover. So I used the pointy bit of this Eiffel Tower model we have in my sitting room. So there I was carefully trying to tear the cover off to then slide up and over the DVD case. I succeeded. I used the sharp tip to carefully jab into the side of the dvd, wrip it and take the cover off. Then, as I was going to pick up some of the torn off plastic cover up form the floor, I accidentally jabbed the Eiffel tower model (which I was still holding) in to the back of the DVD case. There was a FUCKING HOLE in my DVD case and it was pretty big. I was fucking furious. I didn’t know what to do. I thought about going to have it replaced. Anyway, after 10 minutes of sulking, I decided to put a sticker over the hole. It still looks shit though.
Haha, I will probably never look at the back of a DVD case once I have bought it, but I can’t sleep at night knowing there is a hole in my DVD case :’(
i’m extremely careful with my DVD’s, the cases, the discs, the slips, everything, i never touch the surface, always hold it with my finger through the hole in the middle, even though it doesnt really make a diffrence i even get pissed when there are fingerprints on it, it should be clean totally, when i buy a DVD on ebay i always make sure it’s sealed, unless it’s really rare and used, then i’ll make an exception
dunnu what to do about scratches, never had em send it back when it’s not playable anymore, if not keep it, too much trouble
That’s got to be bullshit. No matter how careful I am, one of my CD’s/DVD’s always gets scratched. I don’t know how the fuck that can happen. I always put my finger through the middle hole like you do, I never touch the surface, and it goes from the DVD/CD case, to my DVD Player/Hi-Fi and back into the case, where the fuck do the scratches come from? I swear someone goes down into the room where I keep my DVD’s at night and then scratches them just to annoy me. Wankers.
