The clearout continues … but it’s leaving me with more questions than answers.
For example: why? WHY do I have four issues of ACM Press’s software engineering notes from late 1990 and early 1991?
And why? WHY do I have Deloitte and Touche’s financial reports on the Premier League for 1996, 1997 and 1998? Why did I EVER have them?
And WHY do I own a copy of FourFourTwo’s 1998 World Cup preview? And a matchday programme for Chelsea vs. Blackburn in September 1994?
And WHY do I have a copy of of Aitchison & Gilchrist’s guide to thesaurus construction that used to belong to the director of the Woodstock movie? This is true. My copy was owned by Mike Wadleigh, who directed Woodstock (1970), which won Best Documentary in the Oscars. Look it up.
And let’s not even TALK about my nearly complete run of issues 75-93 of the Millwall FC fanzine The Lion Roars. (And let’s not get sidetracked into wondering what happened to issue 80.)
And why in the name of all that is rational do I have TWO copies of issue 33 of Liverpool fanzine Through the Wind and Rain?
And why do I have an A2 size George Best poster? I didn’t even like George Best. I detest Manchester United. WHY DID I HAVE THIS?
And why, WHY, do I have three separate 3.5″ floppy disks with 1994-vintage SoundBlaster device drivers?
I am discovering frightening things about myself.
