So I finally found a contact with the whole UMG (Universal Music Group) debacle and I asked for proof of Capcom music from an NES game under the fair use copyright law, then being claimed by UMG that it’s owned by them and in their catalog. And I received a one…
PROBLEM 1: I have a shitload of anime wall scrolls and posters that have been languishing in closets and under my couch. I don’t have the wallspace to put them up and as I am old enough to be the average DA kid’s parent at this point, I don’t really WANT to plaster my walls with anime anymore. (I have about twelve up. That’s not PLASTERED. Don’t judge me.) Point being, I don’t need the entire collection.
PROBLEM 2: As I am old, these posters/scrolls are mostly of older anime. Finding someone still interested in Trigun and X/1999 and similar things sounds unlikely.
PROBLEM 3: I don’t want to just hit something like Freecycle, because I really, really want these to go to someone who will actually use and appreciate them, not just chuck them on Ebay. I can fucking chuck them on Ebay myself if that’s what’s going to happen, thanks.
PROBLEM 3: Some of the posters are dry mounted. I did this in an effort to keep them from getting so badly damaged in moves (didn’t quite work as some of the corners got crushed anyway.) This means some of them can’t be rolled for shipping and have to be packed flat.
CONCLUSION: I guess what I’m saying is…would anyone be interested if I made a list of what I’ve got? Would you be willing to pay shipping to get some of these things if you want them? (the items are free to a good home, the shipping is not.) Or is it more likely I’ll just have to keep them socked away in case my nice or nephew end up weirdly into ancient anime when they get older?

Vanessa belongs to valesbloggingadventures still… it was an adventure trying to get a short round-faced twenty-something to look younger than a tall angular-faced teen (and I think Haneko still came out too babyfaced, but I like how Vanessa’s facial proportions came out).
Haneko you are a psychic how are you so bad at telling good ideas from bad ideas
Two episodes in and I’m loving the show, but… Mamoru’s just walking around town in a tuxedo in what is possibly the worst civilian disguise ever. So…. was the orphanage that raised Mamoru just run entirely by orchestra conductors? I like to think that tuxedo was the only piece of clothing he ever owned growing up and he’s just now actually growing into it.
"Am I an Orchestra Maestro? That would explain a lot!"
