I recently threw away all of my burned anime CDs (it was thousands). While they were essentially just being stored, we tossed them from the second floor to the trash can and watched one after another shatter on impact. It was a bit of a catharsis. Technically, there probably wasn't anything on them anymore, since recordable CDs lose their data, but it was the idea that I would never watch it, and hadn't watched any of it after 8 years that struck me. Why was I keeping something so useless for so many years?

I bought a lot stuff this year from Comiket 75 :D I never used to be interested in doujinshi, but the quality of the publications, along with the fact that they're so many illustration books and not just fan comics has really rekindled my interest in it all.
That, and January has been a slow month for art books...

I was thinking the other day about scans I did years ago and saved on CD. Yes, compact disc. And looking at them all, most scans are smaller than anything I would use nowadays. They look positively tiny. Some were even scanned as low as *gasp* 150 DPI!
In the back of my mind, I know I should re-do them if I ever want to use them (or really upload them here). But then I think, who's to say that in another 4 or 5 years 600DPI won't seem just as small as 150DPI seems today?

I remember a few years ago, before Animepaper and Minitokyo began, high resolution scans were a lot harder to come by. As a result, a lot of series never had any wallpapers made of them, or available. And the popular shows would get walled over and over again with most people using the same two or three scans available (see Shingetsutan Tsukihime, FLCL, Kiddy Grade, Air etc. XD)
