Show us your Shit #4

This latest column on our digital confrere site DVD CLINIC asks YOU to be participate and yes, ladies and germs....SHOW US YOUR SHIT!! 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, this column is for you! Just read the requirements below and drop us a line at [email protected] with pics, videos and commentary about your nifty stuff and your collection might be the next one up here.


1) Please include any basic personal info on yourself, so others could know who the f*ck you are. Age, sex, geographical location, what you do in life, etc....

2) 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.

3) 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...


Here is My Shit, JoBlo! Hey now, I’m Cole Rothacker, I live near Philly PA, I am a dude (not THE Dude, but a dude none the less), and my job is that of a juvenile delinquent. So let’s begin, right at...


So, right off the bat you can see some neat stuff on my door. A Death Proof mini-poster, a Blaxploitation style Jackie Brown poster (found in the JB DVD), a Halo 3 poster, a Jay and Silent Bob bumper sticker, and some Clerks InAction figure boxes, and various little things I printed off the internet over the years (Stinkoman, DoVG3, etc).


Now, right next to my door is my book shelf, home to dozens of TPB and HB comics, as well as normal books.

Some DC stuff, and Bone. My normal comics are hidden in my desk.

And those normal books, including the “Making of Grindhouse:, The biographies of Bruce Campbell, Stan Lee, AND Quentin Tarantino, in that order, Kevin Smith’s books, and a few of my Stephen King hardbacks (paperbacks not shown) .

And on top of all that lies all of my Clerks InAction figures, bought in various places (Amazon and Wizard World). They include Bartelby, Loki, Randal, Brodie, Kevin Smith, and Jay and Silent Bob. Sadly I also have a Spiderman 3 poster. Last time I buy a poster to a movie I haven’t seen, the exception possibly being The Dark Knight.

Last on my bookshelf corner lies this Toy Story Litho I got YEARS ago. I probably got it at a Disney store for a pretty penny, as a gift. I must have been 5.


Here’s where a lot of my cool shit resides.

Right over the desk, looking down at me as I toil, is what I call my “Tarantino Wall.” Yes, I’m such a huge fanboy that I dedicated about 1/3 of this wall to Quentin Tarantino and his films. I got that big ass poster on Amazon, as well as the Grindhouse and Pulp Fiction (slightly torn, but I thought it made the poster have more character, more “pulpy”). The Reservoir Dogs poster I got in some little knick knack store in Ocean City , NJ . I like going there because we sometimes pass Bruce Willis’s neighborhood on the way over.

Here you see a framed letter I received from Jean Schultz, the wife and current (I guess) owner of all thing Peanuts and Charlie Brown. You can see most of the Snoopy Watermark. I love me some funnies.

Now here are two things I love: A Superman statue and a Batman DOLL (I can’t use the ol’ “They’re not dolls, their action figures” excuse) designed by Alex “hyper realistic superhero painter” Ross. They are obviously designed after their first appearances in the 30’s. I wish Batman was a statue too, but he has a bat-a-rang and a flexible cape, so he’s really more like a GI Joe.

I’m a huge South Park nerd (seen, literally, every episode). I won that Tweek doll in a claw grabber (seriously!) and I bought that Cartman ornament in a Christmas shop in Canada .


The meat and potatoes. The reason I exist. All of my movies that I love so much (except for Ultimate Avengers). Blu-Ray be Damned.

Here are the top rows of the main rack. The second Rack (to the left of this one, seen in previous pic), contains all my comic book movies, zombie movies (I was obsessed when I was 14), comedies, miscellaneous, and VHS tapes.

Similar to JoBlo himself, I categorize my movies by director/loose chronological order. It goes from Kevin Smith, Edgar Wright, Tarantino/Rodriguez, David Fincher (FC is being borrowed), Spielberg/Zemeckis, Christopher Nolan (the only comic book movie NOT in the comic book movie section on the other rack, along with Sin City), Stanley Kubrick, Sergio Leone, Scorsese, Darabont, Die Hard Trilogy, and the Pixar Films (Ratatouille is being borrowed as well…I make friends with moochers). You’ll notice that I put Death Proof before Planet Terror, and both of those before From Dusk Till Dawn. That’s because that’s how I see the “Earl McGraw” saga goes, in order, (KB, DP, PT, and FDTD). Yes, I honestly think about how I place all my DVDs. I need new hobbies.

The second row is all Animated TV shows, including nearly all things Parker/Stone, some Simpsons, Mission Hill, the seasons of Family Guy that were funny, Adult Swim stuff, Beavis and Butt-head, Afro Samurai, and the Transformers Movie, the “Oh SHIT what are we gonna do now!?” Version.


The penultimate stop on this sad little tour.

Yes, every morning I get to wake up looking at Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pimp away from a burning village, armed to the teeth, as well as Clint, Eli, and Lee. Both of those posters I got at Wizard World Philly 07. That steel map of Scotland I found in an attic, probably because I’m half-Scottish. There’s also a shitty Bartman mask I got when I was 10 for All Hallow’s Eve. I hung it up back then because I thought it would look like how Batman hangs his costumes and stuff in the Batcave.

You can’t get this anywhere. My Papa painted this for me a couple years ago. Simple, yet cool. Currently I’m trying to get him to paint me a picture of Bruce Campbell.

My Framed rarities Wall. A storyboard segment of that “Feel Good Inc.” music video (none left in stock), an autographed picture of “Ed, Edd, ‘n Eddy”, signed by the voice actors who do their voices (Matt Hill, Sam Vincent, ‘n Mike Sampson, respectively). They do voice work for tons of other cartoons. Canadian born cartoon. Also, a bootleg Snoopy wood thing (my Dad got it at a school fair in 1970).

Also, you’ll see in that picture are:

A signed “Oni Presents: Jay and Silent Bob” comic book, signed by the Snootcher of Bootchies himself, Jason Mewes. Neat, through Six Degrees of Separation, me and JoBlo are connected, cuz this was signed by Mewes, whose touched Kevin Smith’s hands many times, whose shaken the hand of JoBlo. Cool...See what you can learn from ‘LOST’?

And also:

Signed by THE HULK hisself, Lou Ferrigno. I don’t know what it says. My friend thinks it says “To Cole, From Incredible Hulk”, but I dunno…nice fella though.


Here it is, the last 2 awesome things I own. I’ve literally saved THE best for last. The first thing is awesome, but the last is just…Just.

Oh yes, one of my Ultimate mementos of how great summer 2007 was, aka, the Summer Judd Apatow saved the Comedy Genre. This thing is 8 Ft. Tall , and was quite a hassle to get home (as you can see from the slightly bent “S”), but I love it. One of the Best Films of 2007.

Last, but in no way, shape, or form is this least, I give you the best, most coolest thing I own, in good condition, and one thing any fan of animation would love. I think this could even beat JoBlo’s 7 Ft. Jack Skellington. I give you…


Yes, the very couch you saw in every movie theater all of May and last Summer, is mine, and mine until I’m nothing more than worm food. You pretty much can’t get this ANYWHERE. My friend’s mom bought it for me, for reasons I don’t know. It was bid on for a month, and eventually she had to pay north of 1,000 greenbacks, but man, is it worth it. I own a piece of pop culture history in my garage. You wanna know what’s even better? The movie itself was awesome. This was brought to my house from my local Regal Eagle, and by now you’d be pretty hard pressed to find one, as most of these were shipped back to the manufacturer. The “Simpsons Movie” sign was taken by the family who bought it for me, so I covered the holes up with two posters. Just as good.

The Superbad standee came along with this for free. You can tell I had a pretty awesome summer. I’ll stop gloating now.

So there’s My Shit, JoBlo.com. I hope you enjoyed skulking around my room for a bit, looking at all my good fortunes. Have a great week.
