    My fancy bookcase is full before I even by it!

    I think he should embark on a nationwide tour to unbox in a home near you.

    Back in the day me and Sherilyn Fenn had a thing going only she didn't know about it. And I wanted to see that movie but some asshat spoiled it for me by spoiling it. Also, the plot sort of reflected the one sided relationship I had going with Sheri (it's what I called her on our "dates") and it hit too close to home.

    Homeowner: "I woke up and this guy was in my living room standing in front of my bookshelves with this huge knife!"
    Cop: "Did he threaten you? Did you feel threatened?"
    H: "No . . . mostly I was bored and frustrated."
    C: "How so?"
    H: "Well, I just wanted to see the f**kin' book he was talking about but he was going on and on and on about some other sh!t and I couldn't skip ahead 'cause it's live right there in my living room."
    C: "What an asshole."
    H: "Book was super cool though."
    C: "What did he do with the knife?"
    H: "Other than almost cut off a finger? Nothing. Just cut the tape on the box. I think he overcompensating for something with that knife, if you want to know what I think."
    C: "Hahahaha what a loser!"

    Almost. I'm happy to share more as we progress.

    A few production notes: We're getting Mike Flanagan to direct!! We were going to have Idris Elba play me but the social media reaction was just awful and the producers caved to the pressure. It wasn't a racial thing like it was with DT. The public just felt he was wrong for the part, being toooo damn sexy to play me convincingly. So now we're having tough time casting for my character. I might have to play myself.

    Has this thread been irredeemably derailed?? I do this in meetings all the time.

    I said I would try to snap some photos of my Billy Bookcase display shelves with lights. I am gradually replacing a mishmash of different bookcases. Currently in the Den I have a desk that runs one whole wall with shelves on the top. That will not change and everything I do will need to blend with that. The room also has some rather strange dimensions. The Bill cases will allow me to better use the space. I currently have some oak cases from Costco and some Sauder cases mixed in. They will eventually be replaced with more Billy cases.

    Sorry for the quality of the pics. I probably will not take the time to get quality photos until I complete the transition:

    The top shelf on the Billy cases is a glass shelf with LED lighting. I will post side by side photos with flash and without:

    Very nice, Martin! I really like the lights in the case. It's starting to make me rethink my decision! Thanks for posting the pics.

    All your photos look very nice to me except for a couple here which are clearly darker making it harder to see all the books. Cap
    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.
