There is a slight scent to the disc, and particularly the sleeve and liner notes.

Clutter is my friend. Still buy tons of DVDs & get excited to find some old school CDs around - still have a collection of albums and cassettes too. I like having bookshelves filled with books and media. I just do. I love to find a bargain at a garage sale, library sale or for cheap on ebay. I like to look at it and it gives me a sense of satisfaction to see everything I have on shelves without having to scroll and scroll and scroll and forgetting what I have or having to be near a computer or TV to watch or listen to something & trying to see anything on a phone drives me nuts. Have lost wifi signals, have lost on demand -been unable to access it at times -but have never lost the physical copy of something or been unable to play something I wanted to watch or listen to when I wanted, where I wanted. Of course we have portable DVD players and CDs players too. Plus I can lend it out to someone and we can swap things. It is a collection. A collectible. I like a home that feels lived in and shows possessions of things we love. I always felt bad for minimalists - it seems such a barren and sad existence. But I understand the millennials are all about experiences instead of products so I guess that comes with growing up in a digital world. I guess to answer the OPs question - it is a big yes. And from the way I see people hoarding media at thrift shops and garage sales etc. - I'd say there are a LOT of physical media people around here too.
