I collected stuffed animals and action figures as a child. Nowadays I collect anime DVDs, manga, and various other things related to my favorite shows.

I collect Starlight Express merchandise and memorabillia (including plastic shopping bags! :P ). I have 4 CDs now and I'm saving up for more, plus I just recently got an original London brochure, and I'm hoping to get an extremely rare early tour brochure soon. :D Other than Starlight Express memorabillia, I also collect fans, and I'm starting to collect masks.

I'm so happy because today I got my order from Amazon and so now my Everyman's Library Pocket Poets collections is up to date. I have all 72 volumes published so far. I've been collecting these for 8 years now.

I've found myself collecting computer games and some other software and storing it on CD's, thinking I'd find use for the stuff, but I probably end up only using a third of what I collect. Movies also of course, and haven't watched all of those either, it often feels like I'm not in the mood to watch some given movie or feel it will be bad anyway if I haven't seen it at all. I find it easier watching movies on TV with the forced pace - otherwise I just end up pausing a lot and end up not finishing the movie.

Today I'm starting a new collection - caps of the Kubus juice bottles. I have an anemia so I should comply with proper diet, eat more vegetables and drink juices. I decided to start drinking Kubus juices again. Now there's a promotion and all bottles have really cool caps, with the characters from Shrek painted on them.

I don't collect anything, I seem to gather instead, I have a lot of hard drives, the smallest capacity being just over 100MB, I forget exactly how big, a lot of mobile phones as well, plus my toolbox is full of bits of wire, and some electronic components of sorts, as well as a lot of automotive fuses and some other electrical related things

I'm more of a gatherer than a collector

Up. I'm sure some collectors would like to say something here :D

Now I don't collect anything - I mean , I still have my stamp-album (most of my stamps are Russian stamps) and my collection of postcards still exists but I haven't added any new elements for a long time. But I'd like to start keeping some new collection but I don't know what it should contain, it's the problem.

What do you collect now? And what did your previous collections contain?


At this time i dont collect anything, nor have i ever collected anything... but i would like to collect straps, problem with me is id have them all on me at the same time...

only problem is, they are dang expensive.. lucky for me the health insurance is paying for my entire powerchair

400-600 dollars for a positioning harness (like in my avatar) and custom ones can run up to 5000 dollars... for more strap-ular discussion head to the strap thread.

The Official Strap Thread

When i become filthy rich i will definitely have loads and loads of straps, you will see me with a lot of straps layered on top of me lol.
