I've just been down the gullet of an interstellar cockroach. That's one of a hundred memories I don't want.

How does one go about intentionally forgetting something?

I read a graphic novel a couple of years ago and I still think about on a regular basis. Unfortunately, every time I do, I get depressed. And because it was a comic book, I can fixate on the ideas AND the pictures.
There are very, very few things in my life that I don't want to remember -- even most of my failures are good to reflect on from time to time. But this can go. I would love to just reach into my brain (all Locke & Key stylee, for my geeks out there) and just yank this little bastard out.
Barring that possibility, has anyone done a good job of forgetting something like this?
