Day 87-- on DVD overlaps / a conversation / a poem
Friday, December 01, 2006
Something I always laughed about: in college, you could go to various students' rooms and--if they owned DVDs--you were bound to find at least three of the following:
-Dumb and Dumber
-any of the Lord of the Rings films
-Remember the Titans
-Donnie Darko (if they're edgy students...edgy!)
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (if they're hipster students)
-something with either Chris Farley or Adam Sandler (except for Punch-Drunk Love)
What you have is basically 75% of Geneva's campus owning the same DVD collection. Awesome. Most of them are in Full-Frame, too. This is most certainly one of my exaggerations, but there isn't just a kernel of truth--it's more like a lodestone.
Why is this?
At the calendar kiosk:
"Day by Day Calendar, this is Jason."
"Is this the man of the house?"
"I'm selling calendars."

I didn't own any of these in college, and only own 1 (LOTR) now. But J. and I only own about 10 movies, half of which are VHS, so we're atypical.
