I always find books are the worst thing when it comes to moving. Pack them in anything larger than a shoebox and I feel like I'm on World's Strongest Man lifting the Atlas stones.

>>432180 I had a house full, borderline hoarder style, plus 8 20' shipping containers of storage, a very full industrial unit and a moderate size barn.
Enough that it was costing me about £3000 a month in rent, and moving / getting rid of it would be a multi-month operation. Still a work in progress after a traumatic house move two years ago.

Bloody hell, that is a lot.

That's actually one of those anxieties I've always been acutely aware of especially when I'm stoned ever since leaving my mum and dad's place.

Just the sheer effort it takes to move all your earthly possessions, and the worry of what will happen to them all if there's a flood or someone breaks in. What would you be left with and how much money would you be kissing goodbye if the whole place burnt down? If you find yourself needing to move quickly, how much could you manage to chuck in a van and how much would you just have to give up?

It sort of makes me feel trapped and burdened, as you say, so I've always managed to avoid hoarding too much for that reason. If I had to leave town tonight, I'd probably be happy if I at least managed to get away with the things that immediately surround me in my little nerd sanctuary.

There are some people, of course, who own scarcely more than their clothing and a laptop. Even though I generally detest consumerism, I can't say I'd find that a very fulfilling way to live.

Felt a bit shit going in to work, I spent about an hour deliberating whether or not to go home, but when I stood up out of one of the cars and I felt so dizzy I couldn't see for a few seconds, I decided I probably should.

I still didn't feel "ill", just a bit flu-y, so on the drive home I sort of felt like I was pulling a sickie and started planning what I'd do with my extra free day. Then when I got out of the car at home I had a coughing fit so bad I think I blacked out very briefly (I ended up on the ground, anyways) I decided I probably made the right call.

Anyway I've just slept since about noon. I feel grim.

What more do you need?

A year ago I went through a decluttering phase and made loadsamoney selling everything I don't regularly use. I realised that the only possessions I care about can fit in a small van: a few guitars, an amp, and a desktop PC.

I always think like this, I could get away with a minimal amount of stuff, but it all adds up and I keep accumulating peripherals - I have a cabinet full of tools for cars, bikes, soldering, all that, boxes of cables that I don't need now but are useful spares, literal empty boxes for stuff I own but don't plan to keep forever, so I can sell them more easily - and that's just the shed. I can often imagine living a minimalist life with just a laptop and a bicycle, but even then whenever I want to fix either of those things it's going to be an absolute fuck on without proper tools.

>>432188 What more do you need?

_need_ - nothing, I could start from scratch if I had to.
However, a fair amount of my stuff is company / work stuff that enables me to make a living, so I'd miss that. I could rent stuff, I guess, but having stock, equipment and tools makes me more valuable.
A fair amount more is related to my hobbies, and I'd miss that.
Some is toys, and I'd miss those.
Some is projects I'll probably never pick up again, that could go.
Some is just tat that I need rid of.

Most of my shit is "a few guitars", but if you're a halfway serious guitarist you will know that's a very generous way to talk about it. I've got a small practice amp, a big halfstack I used to use for gigs, miles of cables and spares, about a dozen pedals, mic stands, a good selection of SM57s and AKG condensers, straps, the transport cases and bags that all of the aforementioned stuff goes in...

Yeah, I like the idea of living with nothing but my clothes and laptop but I think anyone who's truly happy that way is either a properly boring cunt, an office hermit workaholic, a pub patron alcoholic, or possibly both.

I have the same problem - when I last moved, they all stayed in their boxes and are in a huge pile in the corner of the living room. I am entirely self-taught and reading is one of the main ways I learn things, so books are important to me, but I'm not sure I need them all on the shelves anymore. I think the next time I move I will probably get rid of most.

To be fair it amused me for a bit until their voices got grating. Their repertoire was impressive- They went through Don't Stop Me Now, Angels, Jingle Bells and Blue Da Ba Dee Da Ba Di before they ran out of songs everyone knew the words to.

I feel like this is a uniquely British thing. I bet you wouldn't catch an entire carriage of French women singing this obnoxiously.

I suspect that a good 30-40% of my substance abuse problems stem from having to deal with cunts on public transport either singing or playing a fucking guitar or worse.

If my kid turns into one of those cunts who takes a fucking acoustic guitar to every single party he goes to and starts fucking sing songs I'll disown the cunt before you can say James Blunt.

I'd rather he start doing pingers* and going to raves at 14 like I did.

*As long as he hooks his old man up, of course.

Of course it's nice to imagine pantsing Peter Hitchens at some kind of public speaking event, but there's always the off-chance he's got an eleven-inch artillery shell hanging between his thighs and then YOU look like the idiot.

It even tracks, because most women won't fuck with that and it could totally be why he's all weird.

The show has been off the air for ten years or so, so naturally younglad increasingly has no frame of reference for it.
