I have about 225 titles and I've been "collecting" for 5 years now. After I fill my latest DVD stand I'm going to throw a title away for each one purchased. Enough is enough!!!
I volunteer to be your personal garbage can when you throw them away.

No I do not own a store, but I will be selling off parts of it. Many of the titles are op and will not be reissued on DVD. About 250 will be posted shortly.

First one going is one called "Druids". I've got some real stinkers taking up DVD rack space.

You might call it an obsession, but I consider it an archive. Most places are not saving obscure movies. I know that I have a considerable amount and when I am done organizing find them
You are seeing pictures while I am in the middle of organizing, but I am ususally not this bad.
I buy cheap and hunt around for bargains (I just paid $16 for the criterion edition of Silence of the Lambs). Many of the videos were under $5. If you hunt around you can find bargans.
I am a librarian by the way.

Aren't librarians usually somewhat more organized? Suddenly I'm reminded of Mel Gibson's hideaway/apartment in the movie Conspiracy Theory!

I don't know how you're keeping track of what you own, but if you don't have one, you need to get a bar code scanner.

Okay . . . after some redecorating, etc. I finally have gotten the chance to get some pictures of my setup (click on image for bigger picture).

TV and HT System (the rear speakers and the sub are "off-screen")




Boxed Sets (on newly installed Ikea BENNO shelves . . . special thanks to *RG3* for the inspiration )




All other DVD's (flourescent "bar" lights installed above and on either side of the door frame)

You have two "Now Playing" stands. Do you watch two DVDs at a time? You run the risk of confusing yourself and your friends.

Nope . . . the one on the right is a "Coming Soon" stand (look at the larger image to see) . . . great for "Double Feature" nights.

How do you have those shelves mounted to the wall? I've bought one of these shelves to see how well they would work out for me but I have no clue on how to mount these suckers on a wall.

How easy are those BENNO shelves to mount on the wall. Thinking about getting some over the summer.

1) I found the studs in the wall and marked them,
2) I used drywall anchors to mount the shelves, using the pre-drilled holes, in the location where I wanted them on the wall (I had that measured out first),
3) I drilled new holes in the shelves where they lined up with the studs, and
4) Used some large wood screws to anchor the shelves into the studs using the new holes.

It worked great . . . I could probably hang on those things and they wouldn't go anywhere.

Reminds me of my favorite tool related joke . . .

"I bought a new stud finder the other day at the hardware store and it works, but it's essentially worthless. Every time I try to use it, it always ends up pointing at me."
