    I just did release date order for my whole BD collection and I pulled all the multi film sets out and put them in alpha in the space next to the end of my Criterions

    I am so retentive that would drive me bonkers. Fox and the Hound I/II, for instance, are on the same BD disc...but two different DVD's...

    Think I understand what you mean, but I guess you don't have any that are actually different from that. I have some UK import titles that are basically upside-down-and-reversed of this, ie. rotated 180 degrees -- IIRC, they're mainly releases not produced by the major studios, eg. Artificial Eye. Doesn't bother me too much when they're standing "upright" on the shelf, but quite annoying when I lay them down w/ front cover facing up, eg. in a stack, because the title on the spine will then be upside-down-and-reversed. I'm not too sure at the moment (and too lazy to doublecheck), but IIRC, certain US releases might also be that way unless you opt to use the slipcover's spine instead of the actual BD case's spine -- I'm thinking Kino's titles off the top of my head.

    Would you have a link or model number or something like that for the cabinets? I'm going to be moving in about 45 days and there's a great space in my new house to hold movies if I can find something nice.

    Thanks Kevin!

    I can think of several similar ones on Asperger syndrome forums. ;)
    I mix Blu rays and DVDs together, but I should add that the only DVDs I have now are those for which there is no Blu-ray version. They are arranged 'library shelf' alphabetically (i.e. all the titles beginning with A are together, but within the As they're not in rigid alphabetical order, etc), with the exception of any taller than normal case size box sets, which sit on a separate shelf. The only quirk within this is where I have a lot of films by the same director (Bergman, Kurosawa and Ozu) these are grouped together by director surname under the relevant alphabet letter (i.e. all the Kurosawa directed stuff is under K, etc).
    I thought this was kind of over-elaborate until I saw some of the systems listed on here. I feel a lot better about myself now. Thanks guys!

    I think a terrific party game would be to invite one of the other posters here over to your house. Let them at your collection for about an hour. Then see how long it takes you to find a given movie.
    Hilarity ensues.

    I love this board. It's one of the only places that makes my obsessive compulsive approach to organizing my discs look less extreme. Not quite normal, mind you, but at least part of a tradition.

    Jason, I'll have to look up the model number. I have it in the cabinets and I can figure it out on Saturday.

    Glad to know the OCD is not only in my place but all over the place in this thread...
