Show Us Your Shit #35
If you've got a cool collection of DVDs, movie posters, toys, comic books, figurines, an awesome home theater set-up that you just have to share with the rest of the world of movie nerds who reside on this very site, then drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with pics, videos and commentary about your nifty stuff and your collection might be the next one up here.
Please include any basic personal info on yourself, so others know who you are. Age, sex, geographical location, what you do in life, etc....
Take some pictures or videos of any cool shit you have in your pad, and send it along with your message to us. Make sure that every picture/video is explained and you don't just send us a bunch of pics and say "Here's my shit!", cause that's not what we're looking for. We need some words attached to the pics, what they are, where you might've got it, shit like that.
Try and zone in on a couple of your FAVORITE AND UNIQUE ITEMS and point those out as well. If possible, let our readers know WHERE you might've bought them, etc...
Name: Frank (InvaderZim)
Where: Long Island
Hello people. My name is Frank.... lets leave last names outta this. I dont want any thefts! I live on Long Island and just turned 30. I love movies.... no maybe you didnt hear me right... i LOVE movies... Every kind, every style, every year. My dvd collection started from just a few select dvd's and now is at 1,686. I bought my first dvd player when they cost $600. Since then i have bought every disc i can even if im not in love with the movie. The more rare the better. And now of course my buying frenzy is as evil as ever since blu-ray came out. I currently have 99 blu-rays and about 70 HD-DVD's. I am just an average guy. I work for a heating A/C company.. am married, and bought my own house.. All other cash goes into movies and getting those items signed when theres a cool convention around. Or when i mail stuff out which i only do on a rare occasion. I dont like usually getting covers signed. I fi can help it i try to get unique items signed... which youll see in the enclosed pics. Without further delay, here we go.

The first picture here is of the time i got to meet my favorite author, Stephen King. I really love this item. The picture next to it is of a Pinhead picture i got signed when i met Doug Bradley. And the picture under it is when i mailed my 12 Monkeys cover to get signed by Terry Gilliam. He has a really awesome signature
The next picture shows my huge banner of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, my favorite movie. And i also have a picture of a frame i made after i met Frank Miller and got my sin city comic signed. He also signed my REAL license plate of Sin City.. his publicist took a pic of me and him which ill also include.
Next is a Cross i got autographed by Linda Blair.. I love this item. She refuses to sign religious items but after talking to her for a while about dogs, she caved.. Nice lady. Next to that is a pic of my Travolta pic i got signed below it is license plates i "obtained" off the cars used in the shootout scene at the end of Departed.. i was in talks to buy Leo's mustang but then they decided not to sell..
The next two images are of a wall that i plastered up with stuff i love, posters of games and movies but my biggest treasure is the chainsaw.. I got the blade signed by every single living cast member from the original texas chainsaw massacre and the remake. Also its signed by the leatherface from the second movie. I love it.. there are a ton more signatures on the other side.
The next images contain the bulk of my dvd collection. On top of the shelves i have more of the odd box sets and action figures. The laptop is used to find a movie when i need one! I use Movie Collectorz software.
The next pic is of the Blu-Rays.. in the corner of the picture is the blu-ray of Dark Knight.
The next picture and the one after it is where you see alot of my posters and my home theater.. its not that special. I have a 60" Sony 1080p tv. A Stand alone HD-DVD player, a Up converting Sony DVD player. A 6.1 Sony receiver. A HDMI switcher. A Xbox 360 Elite, Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii and a hard drive thats hooked up to the 360.. oh and a Hi-Def cable box. On top of the entertainment center shelf.. I have one of my prized possessions. Its the Japanese Alien dvd set. all the dvd's come inside the head. I got this signed in person by Michael Biehn. Theres also the collectors version of Halo 3 and the Limited statue of my favorite game, Bioshock. Also theres the Pewter statue from Doom 3.
Next is a picture to the left of my tv. Its my wall covered in many signed pictures and one of my favorite movie posters to Rawhead Rex. On the wall is pictures signed by Wes Craven, ADAM West, Stephen Chow, George Romero and others. The Chucky shirt is signed by Alex Vincent.
The next pitures include my rear wall which had my signed Sin City plate and a drawing i did years ago of some of my favorite movie characters.. it sucks, i know.
The next one of my far right wall.
No we go upstairs for the last few pictures. The first is of three signed posters.. The first by Thomas Jane, the second by David Arquette and Silent Hill signed by the man who was in all those creepy costumes, Roberto Campernella.
The next picture is of my Grindhouse poster signed by about 15 people. No, not by Kurt Russell. The last is my 5' banner of the Dark Knight.. 2008's rightful Best Picture winner.. we all know thats true.
Well... i hope you enjoyed my sick addiction... Any questions just e-mail you. JoBlo is the best movie website ever!
