Still under construction my film library...



Stored in media shelf's holding 200 DVD's each (40 quid each from Argos). It sits nicely in the little alcove of my living area and i have room probably for about 2000 or 3000 more with all my currently free wall space.

Hopefully will have these shelf's filled by the end of the year 

Some signed stuff i have



A Clockwork Orange signed by Malcolm McDowell and Superman Returns signed by Brandon Roth

Some DVD's i got today from HMV



Shadow Boxer being a surprise find as i thought it was OPP but appears they where getting rid of some stock they had for a cheap price so i thought i get it just for the novelty of Helen Mirren as an assassin 

As was They Shoot Horses Don't They?

Only had one copy in so i assume some dumb ass student once again put an in store order out on the shelf's. Would not be the first time i swiped a copy of Disco Pigs to only here a customer 2 mins later complaining waiting 3 weeks for it and they had sold it on opps 

Also i got The Girl With Dragon Tattoo. Yes it was chart but i love a slip case and having the trilogy with all the films with slipcases will be a nice thing to have in my library.



Also this nice certificate my parents got in some shop while holidaying in Scotland



I love them so much

Here's what min looks like currently.

All 3 sides facing in is mostly Anime and two rows of various BDs.  The side facting out is TV series.



Then the overflow going down the hallway.  This is mostly Horror, Sci-Fi, Kung-Fu and Samurai movies.    SOme TV series box set overflow is on top.  Only one open spot.




Trying to figure out where to start putting stuff until I actually get a new place.

Yeah that's right. I'm sure it's a great show, I'll get around to watching it one day I'm sure.

I've posted these pics on a few forums now. I'm looking at a new filing system that's going to run me about $8000 but it will be worth it. Still a year or two away...

A few members showed an interest in seeing the pictures of my DVD collection. These were taken December 31st, 2009. I've added a significant number more dvds and blurays since then and have also had to do some creative re-arranging to make more room. Given that it is still a work in progress I will hold off before taken updated pictures.



This is about as wide a shot as I could take given that my rec room is rather narrow to begin with. This is the bulk of the collection but I have more in the exercise/toy room as well as you'll see in the later pictures.




These first 3 shelving units are the movies that I have watched and are filed in alphabetic order. The 4th unit on the far right is the first shelf of unwatched movies.



You'll notice on the second shelf on the 4th unit has a movie sticking out sideways. I do that with the case of any movie that I have out on loan to friends or family so I remember which ones I need to get back.



Here is my new TV. Connected to it is my up-converting DVD player, my Bell satellite receiver, an Xbox, an Xbox360, a PS1, a PS2, a Nintendo Gamecube and my Nintendo Wii. (I've since added a 1000 watt Samsung stereo surround sound!) 



This is unit #2 of unwatched movies. It is shorter than the other units which pretty much go right up to the drop ceiling.



Shelving unit #3 of unwatched dvds. You can faintly make out on the outer right edge of each shelf a small white sticker which is a running number of my unwatched movies which increases with every single shelf. I then use my random number generator to choose which movie I will watch.



That's just the lower half of the same unit.



These two units of unwatched movies, numbers 4 & 5, are just small ones I picked up for this space as there is a window above them.



#6 and the last unit of unwatched movies in this room. Total number of unwatched movies in this room.... 2957. I'm unsure of the exact amount of watched movies.



Now we are getting into the exercise room. The unit to the left of the blurays and the shelf above are all movies that are sequels that I have not watched yet. When I randomly select a movie for which there is a sequel I will come here, pull the next sequel in the series and put it in the place of the one that I just picked.



The unit on the right is my 'Video Vault' unit full of all my trade bait. There is a mixture of blurays, dvds, games and music cds here. It's hard to tell from the glare but on top of the stack of blurays is the brand new Bluray of Inglourious Basterds, still up for grabs!   (I've since started keeping the blurays and have tripled the amount shown on that shelf. Due to a lack of space I've started putting my blurays into binders and boxing up the cases... 



This pic is of the upper half of the two units I use to store TV seasons and series that I have not watched yet. It's not very well organized yet. Once a tv season has been watched it gets filed with the regular movies in alpha order back in the rec room.


Lower half of the same two units. (I've since condensed both these units into the one on the right, putting the TV series two rows deep. It's jammed packed. I now use the unit on the left for more regular dvds... it's now right full too, again two rows deep.



This is the last shelving unit I have for unwatched movies. I ran out of shelving space in the rec room and so now I put each weeks acquisitions onto here. I don't have these shelves numbered so my range of numbers for selecting a movie starts at 1 and ends at 2957. Whenever a movie is picked, watched and filed, I bring a movie into the rec room from this shelf, grabbing from the upper right pile on the top shelf until that pile is gone. I then slide all the piles over and up.  (I now have my movies sitting on here sideways, two rows deep. By doing it this way I have bought myself enough space for a few more months worth of purchases. After that I have to get even more creative.  :headscratch:



This is the pile of stuff I picked up this past week both bought and through trades. It still has to be added to my DVD Profiler database and then put onto the shelf in the picture above. (Actually an old picture but it's not abnormal for me to pick up that many movies in a given week.)

That's it folks. Now you know why my wife thinks I am certifiable. Eventually, when the kids grow up and out I will likely completely take over the toy room for my movies plus I am looking at possibly knocking down part of a wall in the rec room at the far end and then extending a wall across through what is now a very large laundry room (much larger than it needs to be for laundry!). This will buy me about another 80 square feet of wall space. I'm also going to look for an experienced carpenter who can quote me a price for sliding bookshelves that will overlap my existing units, kind of like you see in large libraries.

Big plans that I have not disclosed to my wife yet and likely won't until I have completed several other, far less meaningful projects around the house for her.

As of today, August 17th, 2010 my dvd collection stands at 7010 dvds movies or sets and 231 bluray movies or sets.
