So you’ve started dating someone new and it’s going absolutely swimmingly. Your last date was at their place and you both bonded over a third-date flick. Now, for the first time, they’re coming over to your pad. You just moved in, so shit’s a mess — books, CDs and DVDs are scattered all over the place. But you want to make the perfect impression. There’s not much time before they arrive, but as you quickly glance over at the stacks of DVDs, you think to yourself: “Shit! There are a couple of DVDs that need to get buried in a box right the fuck now. And some others that I gotta make sure are in plain sight.” And with that, you’re off to conspicuously place three DVDs on the top of the piles, while quietly stashing three others out of sight and out of mind so you don’t have to explain why in the hell you own these embarrassing things. What do you make sure shows, and what do you make sure goes?

I spent far too long looking over my DVD collection and pondering all sorts of issues, but here’s what I came up with:

DVDs to show: Freaks & Geeks, The Big Lebowski, and Leon (The Professional).

DVDs to go: Devil’s Advocate, Street Fighter, and The Powerpuff Girls — Down ‘n’ Dirty.

Three for Show and Three to Go
