Comedian Mark Malkoff has slept with celebrities, brought a goat into an Apple store, and moved himself into IKEA.
Now he wants to make the most of his Netflix subscription -- and he needs your help.

Over the course of one month, Malkoff aims to watch 250 movies -- that's 400 hours of streaming video. "I'm curious to see how many films a Netflix subscriber can watch in a month," he said. "Even more I want to see the best value I can get for my $7.99.
"If I watch 250 films, that works out to about 2.9 cents per film."

Malkoff has said he will devote an entire day to movies picked by Mashable -- so let us know what he should watch in the comments.
Another video saw him trying various outrageous acts in a vain attempt to get thrown out of an Apple store. And another project: "Mark Lives in Ikea." It follows Malkoff as he moves from his apartment, while its being fumigated, into an IKEA store. "My apartment is 80% IKEA anyway; it'd be like living at home," he says in the video.
He's documenting the Netflix project on his blog and will post a video in late May on the website, "My Damn Channel." The project started on April 16 with 15.5 hours of classic films such as Harold and Maude, A Clockwork Orange, and The Graduate. Nice way to spend a day, right?
Wrong, says Malkoff. "After a few days of watching movies 15 hours a day it's been challenging," he told Mashable. "A few times I've watched entire scenes and then instantly forgotten what I watched.
"It also doesn't help that I've slept five or less almost every night. I haven't left my apartment since I started the project four days ago."
Malkoff is asking people on Facebook and Twitter for film suggestions that are available on Netflix streaming. Two of the documentaries he watched on Wednesday came from Twitter and Facebook suggestions.
He also wants to get some company while watching the movies.
"I'm hoping to get a some well known actors to come to my apartment to do live commentary on their films," he said. "I would love if F. Murray Abraham would watch Amadeus with me and bring his Oscar." He also said he'd like to have Steve Guttenberg over to watch Diner.
He's organized the movies into theme days. Monday was 70's films. Tuesday was 90's films. Wednesday was classic comedies. Thursday is documentary day. Friday is for 80's films such as St. Elmo's Fire and Dirty Dancing.
Documentary day is my favorite so far of on my Netflix Project. Currently watching # 29 "Page One: Inside the New York Times".

"I'm doing a day of the worst films ever made which will feature titles such as 'Cool as Ice' starring Vanilla Ice as well as 'Troll 2,'" he said.
"I'm also doing a day forcing myself to watch stuff I would never watch such as 'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never' and 'Sense and Sensibility' -- I might have to medicate myself to get through that day."
By the end of the project, Malkoff says, he wants Netflix to declare a "Mark Malkoff Day" -- and hopes Netflix CEO Reed Hasting will invite him to visit their corporate offices.
"I hope Mark enjoys his time watching movies and TV shows on Netflix," was all Joris Evers, a Netflix spokesman, would say.
Malkoff said at first his wife wasn't thrilled about the idea of him watching moves for 15-and-a-half hours a day, but has enjoyed watching some films with him. "When I initially pitched her the idea I tried to spin it that we could have a 'date night' every night watching movies, but she wisely didn't buy it," he said.
What movies do you think Mark should watch? Remember, it has to be something that's available on Netflix. Tell us in the comments.
