What do you collect/What are your collections?

Recommended Posts

I'm done with physical media and have been for a while. I give away books after reading them, think CDs/DVDs/Bluray whatever are just unnecessary. They do look cool in a big collection but I'd never have one myself. I do have around 7 NIN CDs that look cool together, they are beautiful and have cool art.

I was always tempted to go down that NIN rabbit hole and collect all the halos.  I'm glad I didn't.  That's a lot of money.   But the fact that he actually numbered his official releases makes it really easy/irresistible to collect them all for fans.  Great strategy.

So, no, I'm not advocating treating a celeb like they're your bud, just....Chatting like you would someone you met in a casual circumstance.

I'd just wanna chat with them about what music they've been listening to lately, what they think of music nowadyas, that kind of thing.

I think this is the same thing really. I can't think of something more awkward, a conversation with a stranger you cannot really relate too. I cringe even at music journalists pining for something interesting to ask in an interview.

I am downsizing. My Wii I bought in high school doesn't have a functioning disc drive so I'm selling all my games. Somebody bid $20.50 for one game on eBay.

 

I also went to Goodwill and found Photoshop for $8.98. I have a bid for it for $9.99 with six more days to go. 

 

I kind of wish I didn't sell it but I don't have a computer with a disc drive now.

Soft mod the Wii and load from USB. I haven't used a disc in years.

I collect and grow plants.

My main interest is the Nepenthes or Asian Pitcher Plant.

Every viable window in my house has them hanging in and around them, and the house is full of plants in general.

 

I have a large collection of Sarracenias (trumpet pitcher plants from North America) Dioneas (Venus Fly Traps) and Drosera (Sundews) outside as well as tons of orchids and cactus, including some exciting ones like Echinopsis pachinoides (San Pedro).

 

I also have a bunch of Amorphophallus, including the notorious Amorphophallus titanum (latin for giant mis-shapen penis) or "Rotting Corpse Plant" that is the world's largest unsupported infloressence when it eventually flowers.

 

But the main interest/collecting thing for me is the Nepenthes- I'm always hunting for them and shuffling them around in efforts to make room or trading them or giving them away as an excuse to get more.

Did you read "White?"  I thought it was a fun, super breezy, entertaining read.

That sounds really cool.  I don't know how to do that.  I managed to kill a houseplant (Dracaena trifasciata) that requires almost zero maintenance.  I felt bad.

I’m sure you know what that looks like, after all, you see it each morning

Hey.  That was hurtful.
