those who know me well know i have very few belongings. lately, i've gone from very few possessions to very, very few possessions. i like it that way and have spent the last few months in serious purge mode.
this morning i set out a bunch of stuff directly outside my office. i got some boxes, put some colorful tapestries over them, and placed a number of magazines (mostly the nation) on one box and a ton of cassette tapes on the other two.
above the boxes of stuff, i placed a sign that said, "free stuff."
there was some really good stuff up in there: led zep's houses of the holy and II, some pavement, bjork, and neil young, some tribe called quest, de la soul, and del, vivaldi's four seasons (!), and some great mixed tapes from some old co-op parties in the late 1980s.
nearly everything got taken within a few hours. i was somewhat surprised that the nirvana tape went unclaimed. i wasn't surprised that the two joan sutherland tapes didn't find a new home.
update: i forgot to mention that i was also surprised that janes addiction's nothing's shocking wasn't taken. that tape rocks!
