Listening to a lot of radio serials, you see how much that style of performance informed the vocal range of the era.

I mean a lot of the vocal range stuff is technological- Golden Age radio broadcasts and early sound recording tended to use carbon mics which cut out a lot of the low frequencies. It's not that people were actually speaking more nasally for the most part (though I imagine vocal training pushed them to pitch a bit higher to remain legible.)

Yeah, back when I was in college I had everything alphabetized because I ran a rental service out of my dorm room. Nowadays, just taking a look at one of my shelves (this one is vertical) ... I have Watchmen above Logan above Independence Day above Heat.

I had mine ordered alphabetical by title. But then I decided I wanted my kaiju movies together. Then samurai movies together, which I turned into a Japanese movie section. Then I ran out of space and just jumble everything together now.

My video games got the same way. Obviously but console. I had my DS games organized by publisher, then organized alphabetical by series. Again I ran out of space which made it difficult to keep that organization scheme.

Like I've got movies that are in specific series shelved together (if they aren't already in a box set), but yeah beyond that, it's chaos.

My genre sorting is definitely unintentional. When I don't know what I want to watch I usually pull a bunch of stuff that's all in the same vein, so then I put it all back together. Naturally everything just kind of falls into genres because of that, but the ultra-organized in here would be aghast at these messy stacks in my record cabinet.

I think colorization was a stopgap between what we consider to be digital restoration. Films that went through colorization had to be stabilized and smoothed out or else it would be impossible to keep colors consistent. For that matter, many of the tools developed for it are the same ones used for early cleanup processes by MTI Film.

For B&W films, though, just having a quality image makes the option of monochrome akin to artwork created with charcoals vs oil paints. Or a musical piece performed with one instrument vs a full band or orchestra.

I actually got a new TV stand (using a BESTA frame plus shelves), but they were out of the glass doors for the front, so I'll get those later.

The actual BIlLY bookcases were in stock, but they were out of additional shelves, plus I'll probably add the extensions at the top while I'm at it.


For organization, I tend to keep labels separated since the consistency looks nice (especially since a big chunk of my library are Criterion and Kino Lorber), with larger box sets and stuff on top for extra room.

I just go by genre per shelf, and then if there's an output by a filmmaker and studio that I care, I place those first by release order (e.g. Pixar or John Carpenter). And for the remainders, alphabetical order unless I really don't want to bother (Then it's just by "stuff it randomly in the shelf" order).

Honestly, this is sort of what I use the most often. I use a record cabinet because I'm an ~aesthetics first~ dummy of a decorator, so there are just vertical towers packed in there since I don't like displaying Blus. Generally I remember that something is in the rear left pile or whatever and I'm right more often than not.

I should add that only the movies I have behind the vertical stacks are alphabetical. Rest are just kind of where ever they fit after I bought them because I'm too goddamn lazy and I can just read the spines. My records, however, aren't organized at all beside a tiny section that was the earliest part of my collection. So frequently I spend a good five minutes looking through hundreds of discs over and over until I find the thing I actually want to play. So I get you.

WE ARE THE SAME, YOU AND I.

Organization by genre at least makes some sense, but that's just too difficult for me so it's 100% alphabetical with series lumped together based on the name of first movie.

Are you my roommate? I can tell whenever she's watched one of my movies because she'll just put it back on a shelf at about eye level. Took me forever to figure it out initially because I was looking at the shelf and just knew something was wrong, but I couldn't quite pin it down. When I finally inspected it, she had shelved Ghostbusters in the middle of the B section.

ehhhh that's not enough to shift a record player so no harm no foul. vinyl is also better stacked that way because they'll warp if they're stacked horizontally. The real solution is to buy enough dead format physical media that they sit securely in a shelf, so securely you can never get them out because they're packed in too tight and you just end up listening to stuff on spotify anyway.

I used to organize by genre, but ran into the issue of what do you do with poo poo that doesn't fit into a single genre? Do you just put horror comedy with horror? What if it's funnier than it is scary? Then does it go with comedy? Do you just make a new section? In the end it was just easier to go alphabetical.

Yea this killed me and made it impossible to organize by genre. The one exception is horror, because I was able to come up with a very simple standard, "Is this movie something I would want to watch in October?" If yes, it goes on the horror shelf.

I also have a hard time sorting by director because doing that fucks with too many series. Like I own every Alien movie, so do I really want the three Ridley Scott films on a separate Ridley Scott shelf and then the others on their own on a different shelf? No of course not, that would be madness. Same for Jurassic Park, Terminator, Halloween, and a bunch of others.
