The poster and trailer for The Minimalists are here.
This documentary really interests me. I have a collector’s mentality. I collect movies (VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, Laser Disc), comic books, novels, Stallone-related items, original art and stuff. It’s sometimes hard to let things go.
I have trimmed my comic collection waaay down. These days I keep very few and trade the others in. I do have 6 book shelves of graphic novels (some of which I still haven’t read).
A few years ago my wife and I began to trade in novels that we didn’t think we’d want to re-read. With that said, thanks to the COVID pandemic, we currently have 8 packing boxes of novels to trade in. I have 7 book cases of novels that I am keeping (including dozens of books still to be read) and my wife has another 2 book cases.
I got rid of all my laser disc movies. In the garage I have storage bins of VHS movies that I haven’t watched in years. I have a bin of record albums. I got rid of my album cassettes. I have quite a few music cds and dvds / Blu-ray movies.
I have many photo albums of Stallone articles, press kits and boxes of memorabilia including movie scripts, books, sculptures and other collector’s items.
Yeah, I think I better watch The Minimalists.
They’ve built a movement out of minimalism. Longtime friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus share how our lives can be better with less. Directed by Matt D’Avella.
