From the "things we shoulda thought of years ago" department: Our old pal Scott Neumyer recently decided, for fun, that he would donate 100 of his own DVDs to American troops stationed overseas, but then upped it to 200 after he achieved 2,000 "followers" on Twitter. But then the idea got a lot bigger -- and then more people wanted to donate -- and then Scott found himself the ringleader of a very large Twitter movement: Get our troops some movies, dammit! We're now calling it #TroopFlix.

I jumped in to donate five Philly-philmed phlicks (Rocky, The Sixth Sense, 12 Monkeys, Trading Places, and Mannequin), but not before Scott netted support from classy outfits like RottenTomatoes, Funimation, Shakefire, and Miramax Films -- andthenthemoviegeekcollectivespokeup, whichresultedinevenmoredigitaldonations. But, like most hardcore movie nuts, we're just so damn greedy. We want more! Imagine how good it would feel knowing that YOUR old copy of Finding Nemo is making a special ops dude weep just a little. Or if YOUR extra copy of Knocked Up could help take the edge off after a particularly miserable day. Or if YOUR copy of Shawshank could lift the spirits of an unhappy medic...

Anyway, you get the point: To get involved (or just read along with the donation drive), check out Scott's Twitter page right here. And since you're on the site already, look at my Twitter as well. I'm funnier than Scott. And raunchier.
