" Collecting material things is stupid and a waste of time. I like to "collect" experiences. Visited countries, books read, games played etc. "And how is collecting the games or books that you read any stupider than collecting the experiences they provide?
I try to collect graphic novels but I'm kind of picky in what I like.
" I collect LP's (vinyl records). Currently, I have 31 albums, with 15 being Who records. "This i guess. Last time i checked i had about 90 LPs and maybe 20 singles/Eps.
I try to buy as much "underground" music from small labels as i can. Then i know my money goes to something i want to support
and they are almost always pretty limited and that's sweet.
" a bit of a music collector. im pretty disgusted by the habit of people these days to itunes download singular tracks. music never used to be about 1 track. what happened to concept albums? "I agree completely. Peoples attentionspan is really poor sometimes. I Know some who doen´t even hear a single song through.
Curse you modern culture!
Amusingly named products? Or just things what are weird. For example, this can of Pussy energy drink I bought. Sponsered by MTV (Y). Then on the way back from a friends we went into the Chinese to get a drink. I asked for Fanta and I got a can of Tango with the label thing upside down on the actual can :) im not sure if the picture turned out well.
Comics, although that has gone down over the years (mostly buy trades now). Have a crap load of Magic cards and other TCGs back home. And I used to buy RPG books by the ton, even if I never used them. I have a shelf full of 3 generations of Dungeons and Dragons and a lot of the Palladium Books stuff.
I only collect two things, and they're both worthless except for sentimental value.
One...concert ticket stubs from every show I've ever been to.
Two...corks from bottles of wine at special occasions or that were shared with friends. I get a pen, write the date on it, then pass it around with the pen and have everyone write their name or initials on it, or draw something on it if they feel like it. I have a giant glass jar full of hundreds now.
I used to collect comics, but I've moved towards Graphic Novels now. I only collect to read them, not to sell them on later. I've got around 300 GNs, no idea how many comics. 1600? I've got 5 boxes full.
I also have a small collection of Gunpla
My major collection though is books. I have tons and tons and tons of books. 5 ikea book cases worth of books. double stacked.
