Show Us Your Shit #36
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: Andrew Cremeans
Where: Tampa, Florida
My name is Andrew Cremeans, I'm an Art Director at a Video Game company in Tampa, Florida. My collection is pretty much the result of giving a 19 year old with no responsibilities a decent paying job, and then it snowballing to buying every bit Star Wars crap he could get his hands on well into his late 20's. I bought EVERYTHING!... figures,... Colorforms, toothpaste, sheets, especially all the stuff I had as a kid. I had interesting friends, from movie theatre workers to people that worked at Pepsi, and they all loved giving me free stuff after they had seen the collection.

The closet behind the main picture here is full of plastic bins of stuff. Eventually it got out of control, and after Episode I let pretty much the entire planet down I decided to cool my heels and lay off a bit. So basically it sits in the room like a museum. People who come over like to sleep in there because it's like sleeping in a toy store. Someday I hope to put my kid through college with it, or spend a really long time crying about how much I wish I had the money I spent. It is fun to go in every once in a while and tinker with things I had completely forgotten that I had bought.
