Too Much Stuff
I am going through a somewhat complicated reckoning with the fact that I’ve spent my whole life enamored with...stuff, for lack of a better word. I am, after all, a collector.
So much changed when our twins were born in 2014. We didn’t have a very large apartment, so I copied my entire CD collection into iTunes and boxed it up—giving away a large number of duplicates and things that I didn’t care about. I also had several dozen bankers’ boxes of documents (from years of running the FSM business) that I scanned and shredded.
Also, truly, having children altered my mindset. (They say that tends to happen.) I’m far more interested in their stuff nowadays. Mine is old news.
In 2015 we moved to a very nice house in the suburbs but I didn’t see any reason to un-box the CD collection. It now lives in boxes under the stairs—but I don’t want to sell it. I worked on many of the titles, many others were personally given to me, and it doesn’t feel right just to liquidate them as a cash-grab.
But there are some things I’d like to find new homes for...and if I can get a few bucks here or there, that sounds good too.
When we had the FSM office, I framed a bunch of photo reproductions that we had made and scanned in the CD packages. Above are storyboards from The Towering Inferno.
So are these:
And from How to Marry a Millionaire:
Anybody want these? Anybody close by, so I don’t have to spend a fortune shipping?
I have a few other, smaller pieces too.
I truly have no idea what a fair price would be. They are reproductions, not originals, but the frames are nice—I used to get them done at Frame 2000 in West Hollywood.
Anyway, if you’re interested, drop me a line. Thanks!
