Collector’s Corner: Collecting Cary Grant

It’s a well known fact ’round here that Cary Grant is one of my favorite actors. For this week’s Collector’s Corner, I’ll be taking a look at all of the Cary-related things I’ve collected over the years, and sharing my most-wanted list of Cary films to add to my shelf! Cary Books/Mags I own just…

Collection Update: March 2017

Though I took some time off from blogging in March, I didn’t exactly take time off from adding to the collections. Here’s what I picked up! Films Empire Records (1995) – DVD Special features include additional scenes, music videos, and filmographies. I loved this film as a teen but haven’t seen it in years. Excited…

Collection Update: January 2016

January turned out to be a neat month in collecting. I found some cool movie-related books and added a few films to the shelves, too. Here’s the update!

Collection Update: October 2016

Fall is in full swing (finally, after a too-long and too-hot summer)! I love to spend time outdoors in the fall, but there’s really nothing better than cuddling up with a pup and a mug of cocoa, and reading a book or watching a film on a chilly night. To facilitate my own blanket-wrapped reading…

Collection Update: July 2016

Another month, another DVD-free collection update! I never intended to put myself on a film-buying ban but somehow, I haven’t purchased a single DVD, Blu, or boxed set since April. APRIL!

Collection Update: June 2016

Collection Update: May 2016

This month’s collection update is ALL books. Mid-month I scoped out a used bookstore I’d never been to while visiting my mom and, of course, was able to track down a few film-related books. Later in the month, I visited another used bookstore (an old favorite) and found a whole stack of stuff to bring…

Collection update: October 2015

Apologies for not having a post up yesterday, folks. My excuse involves a midterm, an emergency surgery, and a three-part group project. I’ll spare you the details and instead just give you one of TMP’s monthly staples, the collection update! Here’s what I added to my DVD shelves and OH-related book collection in October.  …
