Earlier today I was feeling a bit nostalgic and decided to waste a few moments of my life by reading some of my older blog posts. I randomly selected March 2011 the archives tab and dove in.
Kids, on March 27th, 2011 I was dumping out all of my games from boxes and storage bins and shelving them in my new DVD tower. When all was said and done, it looked like this:
Now, besides the obvious differences compared to the state of the tower today (like the lack of shelving above the tower, the location of the Zelda poster, etc) you may notice a dark cubby towards the bottom. Don’t be alarmed, that is just something people commonly refer to as “empty space”. I remember being SO extremely disappointed by this empty space and the fact that I didn’t have enough games to fill the entire thing up that my gamer ego took a beating.
But today, as I type this, I laugh. I laugh a maniacal laughter for I would give my right ovary to have the tower be as organized and sexy as it was five and a half months ago. Now, it just kind of looks like I stood in front of the cabinet and barfed games out of my mouth.
That would be an awesome talent, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, here’s the tower of today:
And as if that wasn’t enough, I now have an “overflow” cabinet.
Yepppp. And as soon as that fills up, I’m completely out of room! Wouldn’t it be ironic if I had to resort to using bins again?
….that thought makes me want to cry, actually.
That is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.
Michael, YOU’RE the sexiest thing I have ever seen.
I’m good at carpentry, let me know if you need some built, stand alones or wall mounted.
I ummm need a wall torn out and a new room put in. ^_______^
Um… the simple solution is to STOP BUYING GAMES YOU DON’T NEED, but that just isn’t your way. Sadly, I have no other advice, but I wish you the best of luck in the future. Collector mentalities can be dangerous
PSSSSSSH TONY. Look at you trying to be all logical. Remember, you can’t be logical with a fanatical collector chick. Remember that.
Clearly the only answer to this is a *2nd* Woman Cave. I suggest using your bedroom. Really, who needs sleep anyway?
DUDE! I was thinking that! My bedroom is three times the size of my woman cave, I totally should move everything in there.
Gee and here I was feeling bad about my 30+ xbox games filling up my tiny DVD rack.
HAAAAAAAAAA. Hahahaha. HAAA. X_______X
My god, your collection and mine could be siblings.
Very nice collection. All that stuff should be worth a lot one of these days.
