Portion of child's street chalk drawing, Catskill, NY, 4/14/10
Me modeling the couture at Mike's Hodge Podge junk shop, Leeds, NY
The stairs to the basement... "Les Yeux Sans Visage" leads you down...
It's the most mind-blowing movie store that you've ever seen and never want to leave... all in your basement
Appropriately, this hallway contains every episode of "Dark Shadows" ever made (in 3 formats, incl. pre-Barnabas Collins years)
I finally described their collecting habit as "Anal Film Hoarding" I think I'm onto something
1,000's & 1,000's & 1,000's of titles... A random selection
"Carnal Knowledge" on CED anyone? They have a working player, of course.
Not only do they have over 500 laserdiscs, they even have a massive collection of CED's, a way-obscure pre-laserdisc format
When Curtis 1st told me about their collection I said "neat." Then I actually saw it & had Stendhal Syndrome...
A Joe Dallesandro book Curtis contributed to...
One room of the basement holds every film book ever written
This basement holds *mutiple* Agnès Varda and Hiroshi Teshigahara boxed sets, but also the entire Leprechaun series & "Roller Coaster" on laserdisc. What's not to obsess over?
Also have a memorabilia collection that rivals Remember When & Bill's (shout out to 80's Dallasites!)
Imagine having the entire Netflix (& more) stock in your basement?
Their basement houses a massive haul that rivals Kim's in NYC (or should I say Salemi, Sicily in Italy?)
Now, Curtis & his partner Jeff are OBSESSIVE collectors of films and film memorabilia
Feminism... Barbara Heinemann Landmann-style
Fantastic wood columns in here...
The Amanians have a hold on the woolen industry & also make kick-ass food. Mittens to hold your schnitzengruben?
