    Default Throwing away your archives

    So... I'm in the process of moving studios once again. I have so much back catalog that is basically dead stock and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. I'm considering just tossing it all. I have a pile of test-prints 2.5' tall. I have piles upon piles of other people's posters I have acquired or traded for over the years. Shit tons of flatstock posters. This shit just takes up so much space and I'm tired of moving it all.

    What would you do?

    I've got a big set of shelves with 16 years' worth of dead weight on it. Some truly awful stuff in there.

    But then, just today, someone emailed me wanting to buy one of those awful 10-year old posters I had forgotten about. And I had one to sell. So I guess If I had tossed my archives I'd be $30 poorer.

    OTOH I've got loads of space, and I'm not moving.
    If I were, all that shit would go straight to the landfill. Because recycling is for pussies.

    I like storing things in the dumpster next door.

    Do an open house house thing and give away what people want. If the stock is heavy enough you could make business cards.

    Throwing it all away is a sure fire way to make sure that it's all going to be worth kabillions in 30 years. Goddamnit.
