Boast About The Collector's Spirit In You

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

????[/tab]hulunes from Xisto had started a similar topic out there - on boasting your collectibles.. I found it quite an interesting thread and thought of starting one here too. This will serve as a good introductory thread for newbies to get to know the hobbies of other members and tell us about their own as well.

 

[tab]If you have that collector's spirit in you and have built up a decent collection of anything under the sun and the moon, feel free to share your story with us :D

 

Here's what I collect / used to collect:

Stamps

Coins & also Currency Notes

Antique Software

Telephone Cards from different countries

Small statuettes of Lord Ganesha (the elephant headed Hindu God) - I got well over 300 different statuettes of Him.

Had a sizable collection of butterflies & moths, but gave up a few years back as it was getting incresingly difficult to maintain in absence of spare time.

A massive collection of Psychedelic & Goa Trance tracks (MP3s) spanning well over 40GB at this moment - all tracks being at least 160KBps encoded - and ever increasing.

That's all I can recall at this moment - I've always been into collecting stuff (since childhood) and am sure there are more weird collections lurking around in every nook and corner of my home.

 

WHAT'S YOURS ?

 

Regards,

miCRoSCoPiC^eaRthLinG :D

I used to collect the generic stuff, baseball/hockey cards and the like. I collected coins for a short while but never got too into it... I dunno I think I enjoy seeing different things but not that interested in holding onto them. I more like exploring into different collectibles' realms but not actually caring if I own them or just get to see them for a short time. (that came out weird, but I am not awake enough yet to reword it better haha)

Stamps for me. I've been collecting stamps since the eighth grade. If I see an envelope lying on the street, I instinctively reach for it to see if it has any stamp that I don't have in my collection. I'm just crazy about it B).

I used to collect stamps, but I gave up that, now I can say that I am collecting music. I have been doing it for about 2 years and currently I have 10GB of 128kbps mp3s.
