Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Here's a storage solution that is hardly ever utilized these days, hide all your unwanted junk behind the most discordant image imaginable. That way, when you get the urge to throw something out, the pattern will overload your senses, you'll likely wet yourself and forget your first name.

The 1966 Caped-Crusading Classic Starring Adam West Dashes Onto Blu-Ray Disc July 1 From Fox Home Entertainment

Dynamic Disc Features New, Exclusive High Definition Extras, Plus A BD Industry First,
Nelson Riddle’s Cool Jazz Score Presented As An Isolated Music Track In Lossless Audio

CENTURY CITY, Calif. – Citizens of Gotham City shall fear not when the heroic Caped Crusader and his crime-fighting chum, Boy Wonder, stop dastardly villains from de-hydrating the planet in the original full-length bat-film, BATMAN: THE MOVIE SPECIAL EDITION, arriving on high definition Blu-Ray Disc for the first time July 1st from Fox Home Entertainment. Starring Adam West (Batman) and Burt Ward (Robin), this 1966 spin-off of the popular “Batman” television series features all four of the hero’s most diabolical and cunning adversaries: the clown prince of crime, The Joker (Cesar Romero); the count of criminal conundrums, The Riddler (Frank Gorshin); the pompous waddling master of fowl play, The Penguin (Burgess Meredith); and the fiendish feline, The Catwoman (Lee Meriwether). Directed by Leslie H. Martinson (PT 109, Rescue from Gilligan’s Island), who later won a Golden Gryphon for his efforts, the colorful and over-the-top film featured a groovy and swank score by Academy Award® winner* Nelson Riddle.

Or possibly you would just take one look at the storage unit and throw the entire thing away without even opening it up. That would certainly save on storage space.

I know people who still have stuff like this in their basements.
