Movies

This week's blogstalking assignment was to snap pics of your movie collection.

This assignment did give me a reason to organize Chunky's movies. They went from looking like this:

before

To this:

after

I think there's every Pixar movie in there ever made (minus Cars--that will probably be a birthday present to him). Plus some essentials that I had to impart upon him--The Muppet Movie, The Muppets Take Manhattan, and the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factor (that Johnny Depp one made me want to go take a shower. That man needs to stick to pirating--he gave off the biggest pedophile vibe to me in that remake!)

Moving onto the grown up movies. On the top shelf we have Season 1-3 of Scrubs, Seasons 1-4 of Seinfeld, Season 1 of Arrested Development, and my Xmas movie collection. Christmas Eve on Sesame Street anyone? I've got that one memorized line-for-line. Any sibs reading will know why.

Second shelf is basically all comedy. Wayne's World 1 and 2, Old School, Animal House, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike back, etc. The top two are The Mad Scientist's movies: Lord of the Rings (gag!) and Army of Darkness (insert eye rolling here).

bottom

Third shelf is the entire Future's Yama (Futurama for those of you that don't speak Chunkiese). Chunky loves to watch these all the time (with the stipulation he doesn't repeat any of the words Fry or Bender say!). Him and The Mad Scientist used to watch them all the time when we were all living together. I think it's something Chunky's sort of glommed onto as a connection to daddy. We also have VHS tapes there, most of these are home videos--my brother and SILs wedding, Chunky's first birthday, etc. I wish to god I could say I had some rubber rat porn to add to that collection. My sister T. in high school made a dirty video of those giant rubber Halloween rats doin' it. I was promised the tape. It's about five years late.

A majority of the VHS tapes were left with The Mad Scientist to watch since he was left with a TV/VCR duo. They would include basically the rest of our Kevin Smith collection.

Finally, did you see that final shelf on the last picture there? Those are various scrapbooks/albums. Since this post has left me pining to see The Mad Scientist (watching movies you watched all the time with your husband alone sucks!), I'll leave you with a page out of our wedding album:

awww

Good god we looked like we were 12 years old.

Oh the rat porn! It really is a feat of cinematic genius. Rest assured, as long as no one taped over the University of Alaska Fairbanks Experience tape, you will always be able to see that video some day. AND, I still have those rats and sock monkey (don't forget it was Rasputin and Attila the rats and Mojo the sock monkey who starred in the film) at home in boxes. Because it was a low-budget film, it would be easy to recreate.

Oh, come on. You look at LEAST 13. ;^)

I nearly forgot there was a Wayne's World 2. Huh, I can't believe I don't have it in my collection.

I'm with you on the eye-roll for 'Army of Darkness', but I'd like to counter that 'Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn' is a tour de force performance by Bruce Campbell. 'Army' doesn't hold a candle to it.

My compliments on your good taste in owning 'The Man with Two Brains'. "O pointy birds, o pointy pointy! Anoint my head, anointy nointy."
