i wonder if they're both in secret denial about the prequels?

"i hope he doesn't notice that i hated the prequels..."

"i bet she thinks I liked the prequels... oh well, anything to make her happy...."

"Apparently Gus & Pam enjoy the Star Wars films."

There's no evidence of that. All we can be sure of is that they enjoy collecting Star Wars things. No, wait, there's not even any evidence that they enjoy that. Perhaps the voices in their heads are big Star Wars fans.
posted by Plutor at 11:17 AM on February 6, 2006


they have them because the records are Star Wars ephemera. Theme from the Cantina on Mos Eisley, etc... Where they got them is anyone's guess. The two full rooms devoted to prototypes of products make me think these people might have a line on some inside goods when it comes to the world of The Force.

One question: where did they get all the gold records and why do they have them?

There are entire stores which specialize in music memorabilia. I know of one in particular next to the Aladdin Theatre in Las Vegas. You can also find them from time to time on eBay. Gold records are generally cheaper than other memorabilia , but they're not exactly cheap.

Official gold records are not awarded in any traditional sense of the word. First, an audit is conducted (paid for by the record label seeking gold or platinum "certification") by the RIAA. Once an album is certified, awards are ordered by the record label and are purchased (just like stars on the Walk of Fame), so you can buy as many as you'd like when your record goes gold. Many of these make it back into the marketplace after a while.

Imagine that kind of passion with a budget. Check THIS out. This was a project that I was in charge of at a company that I used to work for (Dillon Works)

This theater was awesome. 2 high quality fiber optic starfield walls, automatic sliding doors and a large media room with Han Solo in carbonite as a door. The outer hall had a gantry with a mirror effect on the floor and ceiling to create an up/down infinity effect that really looked like ten stories of catwalks. They REALLY let us go nuts with the details.

Also, check out the designer's name on this one...I was actually was in touch with him for a while during the initial build design phase. Not a bad resume to have designing your home theater.

You must lower yourself to view the world through the eyes of a Star Wars fanatic. Once you do so, the the house ceases to be empty, but a loving shrine with required sacred relics.

I once had a bedroom that began to border on appearing normal in their house. Call it maturing, new additions, or intervention, I've moved on from that time in my life. All that remains is a Boba Fett pez dispenser and a small rubber statue of Yoda. Erm.

I started to get scared at the cereal room. I vowed that if it was the only bed left on the planet, I'd never sleep in the guest room. I reeled at the life size Jar Jar statue. I became uneasy at the high school and college yearbooks. And I finally lost control of my unease and terror at the life size guy-with-the-red-and-black-face (sue me for not remembering his name) in the cast and crew section of Prototype Room 2.

I'm sorry if it makes me unpopular, but I find this disturbing and sad and pathetic all at the same time. To spend that much time and money and effort to stack up unopened paraphernalia from terrible movies. . . I honestly don't have the words to describe the nineteen different kinds of "bad" this makes me feel.

Eh, I doubt it. I think the bad prequel trilogy killed the Star Wars collectible market, aside from maybe vintage items. There are probably thousands of fly-by-night Star Wars collectors crying over the serious money they've spent "investing" in new Star Wars crap, only to see it sell for pennies on the dollar on eBay (if it gets a bid at all). That said, I bet his collection's into six figures valuewise.

As a collector, I don't understand all the hate flying around here. It's pretty obvious, reading some of their personal info on Gus's site, that he and his wife have worked very, very hard to be able to afford all that stuff. Why some people care if they choose to buy a bunch of Star Wars merchandise and decorating their house with it instead of buying a sports car, expensive clothes, a giant McMansion or something more "normal" is beyond me.

Frankly, I think people that don't collect or at the very least have a fannish enthusiasm for something are pretty bland.

to clarify a few misconceptions:

-- there's no actual cereal in the boxes. some of these are from the 70's, folks. however, the cereal room has approx 300 different cereal boxes, but most of my boxes don't even fit in the room since I have over 1200 different star wars cereal boxes. see: SWCA cereal box list.
-- the house was not built recently. it was built in 1903.
-- almost all of the memorabilia is opened. in fact, the only sealed in package collectibles are the carded figures in the (everyone's favorite) guest room.
-- the death star was not blown up in filming the first star wars movie. there's this cool trick in visual effects where they superimpose footage of an explosion on top of a model.
-- yes, the address posted on my site, 1111 E. Madison St. *PMB* 256, Seattle, WA 98122 is our home address and we publish this address to the whole world because we're totally clueless and we actually live in a private mail box.
-- regarding some of the personal, mean-spirited, prejudiced, and ad hominem remarks aimed at me and Pam on this thread, well, Pam and I abandoned the endless pursuit of hipness a long time ago, but my advice is discover your inner geek and you'll be free! or spend all day in mom's basement insulting people on the internet who differ from you. whatever turns you on, but methinks doth protest too much.
-- and finally, yes, even Pam hates the friggin' Jar Jar statue. I, on the other hand, think Jar^2 is really the messiah.

Gus, my feeling is, if you're going to do something, then, dammit, do it well. You and your wife have chosen to do something with your money that's different than I would--but you've done it astoundingly well. And like MegoSteve says, you haven't spent your money on stuff to impress your neighbors; you've spent it on stuff that makes you guys happy.

You clearly are too comfortable with yourself to need the approval of some random stranger on the Internet--but for what it's worth, I've always thought the truly cool people are the ones who follow their own bliss and don't care whether anybody else approves. That's you.

One thing I'm curious about. What do you DO with all that stuff? I mean, do you take a tour of your collection every once in a while to look at things, or play with the toys? Or is it just enough to know you've got it?

I ask because I am not at all a collector; in fact, I hate having too much stuff. So the psychology is a little alien to me, and I'm interested in knowing more about it.

to answer a few questions:
-- although I splurge on collectibles now and then more than I did when I was a student, I do not spend as much as you might think on star wars. most of the items I find are through networking and tracking down people who worked on the films or the toy line. or other fans in 70+ countries who are nice enough to search supermarkets for cereal boxes I need. I know quite a few people who can and do spend way more than I do on this stuff.
-- yes, we have a few security measures in place.
-- I give private tours to friends and family. part of the reason to show this online is that it's not feasible to give public tours so we offer the virtual one and created my site where many collectors share their best items. I also have the Death Star and a few other pieces currently on loan to the Experience Science Fiction Museum in Seattle so that people can see them in person. They'll remain there for at least another six months.
-- neighborhood in Seattle is Capitol Hill
-- I like the prequels, each one better than the predecessor by an order of magnitude. Many Star Wars fans hate the new films though.
