This is our living room area taken from the dining room. We chose to decorate with framed 27 x 40 posters from various animated films. (Check Moviegoods.com, Rick's Movie Graphics, Allposters.com and Pixpostercellar) I used to have up giant banners from mostly Michael Bay action films, but when my girlfriend moved in this was a compromise. The couch and recliner chairs face a 50 inch plasma wired for both HD DVD & Blu-Ray because I refuse to have a studio tell me what I can and cannot watch. There are also various game systems, CD players, DVD burners, DVR and the newly added 7.1 HD surround. Those are 25 dollar IKEA lights at the front corners. I take full responsibility for the plaid couch because it was cheap.

The kitchen which is off the living room is rather small, but it was big enough for another 2 framed animated posters. They used to have posters for 300 and Jessica Alba's infamous poster for Sin City , but once again having a girlfriend live with you put an end to that.

This is the spare bedroom where obviously dvd's dominate one of the walls. I used to have this in the living room, but I moved it to try and "class up" the living room when the other bedroom became a spare. I do not know how many there are, I lost count a few years ago. But my first dvd which was bought from Reel.com back in 1998 was the original dvd of True Romance. I used to have more, but lately I have enjoyed trading in boxes for HD or Blu-Ray discs. The shelves I had to build into the walls because they don't really build shelves that are this big, unless you shop with Boltz, which I can't afford. Bracket shelves are cheaper and you can get them at any hardware store. I need to build more which is why they are stacked on the floor as well.

Next to the dvd's is a revolving CD rack and in front of that is a giant NECA gremlin which I bought online. It actually came shattered and I had to epoxy it back together, but that's a whole other set of pictures. It's base is heavy and the shippers I take it dropped it every which way possible.

Here it is in an older location at my last house. Spy Kids 3D glasses added an extra Gremlin touch.

I started having a retro mood and decided to put out the packaged Star Wars toys that I grew up with when they came out back in 1983. I need to rework this shelf to make it a little neater. Surprisingly there are lots of stores that sell packaged Star Wars toys from the 70's & 80's. Jedi is the easiest to find. You can see on the surrounding shelves I have lots of random shit.

I know what you're thinking, "What the hell does a tiger have to do with three morbid individuals?" The answer is, "I have no idea, but why can't we all just get along?" This is on the spare bed next to the movie wall. M&M pillows are from the M&M store in Las Vegas , skeleton is from a campus bookstore, tiger from the orange country fair, Jigsaw at Aahs and Nightmare Before Christmas Boogie Man at Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash.

This is our main bedroom. You can see on the shelves a variety of oddball little things including South Park plush, Buzz Lightyear and a shark in a jar. Broadway cards are from when I lived in the NYC area.

Two of my favorite posters, mostly because I was able to get them signed. The first is Evil Dead which I got signed in 2005 at the Horrorfind convention in Baltimore , MD. The second is the Face/Off poster signed by both Travolta and Cage who appeared in NYC 3 weeks apart at the 92nd Street Y at a film series. I did have them in frames in my bedroom, but again, you can't hang the Evil Dead poster above your bed if you expect to get laid (when your girlfriend hates horror movies).
