How about some alphabetization, Dennis? Damn.

You’ll see a My Demon Lover poster just above his head. I vaguely recall the movie, starring Scott Valentine (Nick from Family Ties) as a dude who literally turns into a demon when sexually aroused. I fear I may have seen it in the theater.

    Is there any organization at all in this mess? He has four copies of One Crazy Summer in there, and no two are even next to each other!

    Between Sixteen Candles and Lion in Winter is Westworld. Between On Golden Pond and Labyrinth is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, as well an Conan the Barbarian. Just to the right of Hannah and Her Sisters is The Jerk.

    Revenge of the Nerds. Possibly a couple episodes of The Prisoner. 10. Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie. Sleeper.
