idiots organize dvds

After receiving our stuff yesterday, we set forth on what would be the greatest challenge of our move in...

ORGANIZING OUR MASSIVE DVD COLLECTIONS.

As you can imagine, this was quite a chore. It all started with a late night trip to Ikea, where we purchased three of their "FARK" shelves. Brian, Angel and Patrick quickly put them together, which resulted in Patrick building one the wrong way. Oh well. But once this space was cleared up, we spread our DVDs across the floor...





We quickly realized we had a lot of doubles, and even triples. For instance, we had three copies of the 16 disc "Superman: The Ultimate Collection." We also had triples of the entire run of "Arrested Development," "Predator," "Galaxy Quest," "The 40 Year Old Virgin," "Mallrats," "Die Hard," "Pleasantville," and many, many, many more, including "Big Trouble in Little China"...




We decided we'd only put one of each DVD on the shelves, and our doubles would go in our respective rooms. But the biggest challenge came when we arrived at one of our many quadruples. We even shot a little video to show the dilemma...

Finally, after hours and hours of setup, we organized our DVDs, wrapping up somewhere around 2:30 in the morning. Our apartment finally looked clean...








We did it!

We don't have an exact count, but there is about 700-800 DVDs. Possibly more. I personally have 408 (including many of the doubles the other guys have).

I have to know - do you ever put your Seinfeld DVDs on to watch? Or are they just something you had to own?
