Okay… so it’s not really a movie room. It’s a room in my house that my kids have always called “the play room.” It’s got a TV, some game systems, our family computer, a big corner couch.
Last weekend I got a crazy idea for decorating it… looks pretty cool, huh?
Quick contest: Take a peek at the border of movies around the top (I’ll tell you how I did that in a moment). First 5 people who comment below with the title of at least 15 of the 19 movies displayed in this picture… I’ll send you any one of my books for free- your choice. Bonus offer: The first person who sends me the CORRECT names of the directors of all 19 films… I’ll send you any three of my books for free! (make sure you include your email- never displayed- when you enter the comment so I can email the winners)
UPDATE: We have all 5 single book winners: Brian Senecal, Ryan Klein, Ed Overell, Jeff Gin, and Chris Miller have each named at least 15. And now Mike just won the bonus prize too. Good job! Thanks all for playin!
The movies around the top border are actually laser disc covers. For those of you who aren’t total movie geeks like I am… Laser discs are those big silver things that looked like records before DVDs. They actually were the “hype” when VHS was still around. Laser discs had almost twice the resolution… so movie geeks owned them. Once DVD’s came out… movie geeks like me were left with a large collection of silver Frisbees!
But when I saw the covers the other day, I thought, “Hey, those would make a good border around the room!”
There you have it!
Pretty cool, huh?
