I have a very complicated blend of genre, era, creator, franchise, and my interest that borders precipitously on "system" and "chaos".

I have a seed of a crazy idea in my head that I'm trying to figure out, which is to organize my collection chronologically. I tend to get into moods where I want to watch a movie from a certain time period so it would be cool to have them arranged that way on the shelf.

Of course, there are complications with that and I'm still trying to work out how I'll handle certain box sets, but I can probably just have a special shelf dedicated to stuff like that. Anyway to be honest I enjoy re-arranging my collection about once a year anyway, it's fun.

Its like my horror section goes like this.

Shelf 1: Universal, Hammer, Price, Romero, Kong, Godzilla... anything "classic" or associated.
Shelf 2: Carpenter, Craven, King... my favorites, the ones i grew up with.
Shelf 3: Assorted 70s/80s.
Shelf 4: Assorted 90s/2000s.
Shelf 5: Assorted others like mega packs or Masters of Horror.

Its messy. Somehow Peter Jackson's Kong, Godzilla '14, and Skull Island all sit next to the classics on Shelf 1. Cloverfield moves back and forth. Jason ends up with my favorites even though I hate him because Freddy vs Jason kind of demands it. Shelfs 3 and 4 are starting to expand to 5. Its ever changing and kind of alive but it works for me and I almost always know where to find something.

I found myself wondering if the people who own/work the store were concerned about the crazy person spending half an hour talking to himself or if they recognized what was happening and that its like the store's primary advertisement.
