It doesn't look too bad. I thought I had an open one but I looked and I don't.

Thread Resurrection.

I cleaned my cardboard room and turned it into a 3/4 studio, 1/4 box room. Some may remember what it looked like before from that youtube video I posted before. This is what I did all day on Christmas. Also re-arranged my living room. It was a very busy day.

Today. Girlfriend says: Where do we put this box?
I: Give it to the neighbour's kids.
She: No way. Look at it: It's for 18 years old.
I: Oh... donate it to... ehm... old people? Like ...
She: (...)

Every time I go into my game room I have to fit through this.

Sorry the pic is grainy, I had the cam set for portrait (I'm new to digicams).

I think the hardest thing about cleaning this room is not necessarilythe amount stuff but rather you would sit in the middle for a day going "... ooh I remember that!" "...ohh look at this." "...i wonder where the other one is..." etc...

Oh you like my balding Mario? My roomie is going to sow his hat back on. She might be moving next door and then I'll have room to pull some of this out and do proper sorting, I mean you can't even see half the room from that pic. Oh and the think with a black sheet under the speaker box is the WEGA. :twisted: Faced outward so I can still play games on it.

We aren't saying whose appendix it was, but it's safe to say he displeased us.

A bag of charcoal in your game room is used to keep strange odors away from your games and boxes. Even a noob collector knows that!

Actually I figured no one would notice that and I do sometimes move it out of the way, I just put it in there one day and never put it in it's proper place.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons why it's taking so long. I wasted a good amount of time the day I took that just looking for a stuffed sonic because I had one but couldn't see the other.

The nightmare is real: Cleaning out the store now. Should I ship the Nintendo later? Hmm. No, I'll just cram the clothes in further! Does the PS1 comes down now? Damn it... what about Dreamcast?

With six days left, I'm trying to make sure the items that will sell stay out.

Ok I said I was going to pull out all three and take another pic, but Rolling Thunder is really buried deep now so hopefully just a pic of the sealed Virtual Boy game will do.

Well things are better, I can see my chair again. Several boxes (neatly organized) are in the livingroom though. That big red SONY speaker box is permanently gone now. :)
