Dammit. Why is there no 'archive'? A national poster archive for the gigposters people that made the last 20 years fun? At some point I will be having a more suitable place (read owning a home) and at that time I want to put some time and energy into building such an archive. Everyone give me their posters and trough API set up some sort of a museum/archive.

Mother fracker, I'll come get em. Im in SF!
Was just cleaning out my refrigerator and got rid of a shit-load of condiments- it reminded me of this thread. It was quite satisfying. I found like 3 half bottles of Worcestershire sauce, and like 50 different hot sauces. When i moved from San Francisco to Providence I trashed a ton of old prints and other artwork. It was hard at first but once the first print was in the dumpster I could hardly stop myself. Sooo many wannabe hot sauces.

Last year I threw out 15 appx 60X 80" painting due to damage . Didn't feel it was worth restoring em since I had no place to store em
i'm about to move out of the country again and am doing the same thing.
if anyone in the houston area is interested, i'd be happy to arrange some sort of grab bag situation, like, any 3 posters for $20 or something. send me a PM if you're interested. there's a ton of stuff i just can't afford to lug around any more as much as i love 'em.
Realizing you've burned hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars and hours on prints you'll never sell- priceless.
