Sweet Thing is talking to you on the couch. Sweet Thing casts doubts on whether you are a true nerd.

"Oh, yeah?" you say, a little offended. "Well, I'll show YOU..."

You lead Sweet Thing over to something and point it out. "Here's PROOF that I'm a nerd!"

*****
What are you pointing to?

Me? It would be my complete set of original hardbound Calvin and Hobbes collections.

My complete collection of Star Trek calendars going back to the very first one from 1976.

(No, they're not hanging on the wall, they're in a box.)

Programs to Star Trek and Dark Shadows Conventions.

That should should shut them up!

Could you elaborate? We need to ascertain the degree of nerd-dom.

My 18-inch tall Kenner Alien.

Showing people how the jaws work cements the deal.

Wow, that's one of the early rare ones that Kenner pulled from the market.

The new ones are a dime a dozen, but this one is true evidence of nerd-dom!

Well, we've had many threads on how we arrange our collections. For example, if you go to this thread from 2001:

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=1785&forumID=1&archive=1

...and scroll down a bit to my January 5 response, you'll get the gist of it. It's 8 years ago, but with some minor changes, it's pretty much the same today.

Entire shelves of sci-fi books, DVDs (an entire double stacked shelf to Star Trek shows / movies alone), video games (the entire Wing Commander series, in order... with novelizations... game guides...four boxes of the CCG... a Pilgrim's Cross...) and my autographed soundtrack collection...

...and my original Crime SuspenStories #22. (Im afraid to explain that cover to anyone I know)

I know this is the off-topic side of the world, but the following is what gets me considered a nerd:



I showed that photo to one of the cousins I'm visiting in New Zealand at the moment, and he didn't feel so bad. Geekdom runs in my family, but unlike my cousin (he's a wonderfully sensitive soulrazz) I don't give a shit about what other people think of it.

Yes, that is truly nerd-erific. Have you ever had to move, and if so how did you transport them to keep them in order; or was it mass chaos when you moved and you spent months re-organzing them?

I officially envy you.

Proof of my nerd-itude:

Signed photos of the entire cast of the original "Star Trek", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (except Avery Brooks), and "Star Trek: Voyager" (save Jennifer Lien and Robert Beltran), and Scott Bakula and Connor Trineer from "Star Trek: Enterprise".

But my favorite items: first-edition hardcovers of "Dune" and "Nova", signed by Frank Herbert and Samuel R. Delany, respectively.

James Doohan gave a show in town about 30 years ago...all I had was my paycheck stub (the withholding part, not the actual check), so I had him autograph that. I still have it somewhere.

I've moved a couple of times, and I've tried to put them in the boxes the way they stand on the shelf (more or less), but yeah, I've spent some hours arranging them back.

Fortunately, I "only" have about 1000 CD's. I wouldn't know what to do if I had the amount that some of you guys have!

Not sure it's that interesting, but OK:

My collection has grown from 500 to 1000, Williams has grown from 100 to 200, a complete Goldenthal collection is now squished inbetween Elfman and Goldsmith, TV music has been "merged" with the rest of the film music, composer compilations and general compilations are switched around. I guess that's it. smile

It's more interesting than a lot of threads this side of the board. wink

Well... shelves of DVDs and Blu-Rays including Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek (films and TV shows), Babylon 5, Alien Quadrilogy, Buckaroo Banzai, Kubrick films, Planet of the Apes, Firefly/Serenity, etc. And I'm probably the only person in the state of Florida under 30 who owns the original Get Smart series.

A bookcase featuring such gems as The Stanley Kubrick Archives, several Star Trek novels (including the TNG and DS9 relaunches, the Titan series, the A Time To... series, the Terok Nor series, the Destiny Trilogy, the Mirror/Myriad Universe Anthologies, etc.), Battlestar Galactica episode guides, several trivia/reference books, biographies of Spielberg, Lucas, and Landis, making-of books (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, DS9, Firefly), etc.

And an iTunes library featuring the scores for the Star Trek and Star Wars films, the Superman Blue Box, the Indiana Jones set from Concord, the Alien films, the Batman films (save for The Dark Knight but including the Animated Series set from La-La Land), The 'Burbs, Capricorn One, Predator, Ghostbusters, etc.

You know, when Varese announced Short Circuit as part of their last Club selection, my first thought was, "Okay. This is the one. This is the one where people might start asking questions if they see it on my iPod." smile

Well, I don't know if this is nerdy or not, but I love collecting old skool video game consoles, along with games. Pointing toward the Telly: I watch cartoons everyday; forget the news, sitcoms, dramas, etc. Pointing toward me: I'd rather be reading or listening to music vs. socializing or shopping.

*In addition, I am happy to work from home with my operating system as the main interface vs. people. "The Brain" and I have a good relationship (^_^)
