About me: It is in my nature to collect things. It most likely came from a gene that each of my parents gave to me. They both are "collectors" as well, so imagine the result when paired into my DNA.
My collections: The good thing about my collecting habit is that once I start focusing on one collection; I discontinue any others. They don't follow any order other than my life's path. I can remember my very first collection. Garbage Pail Kid cards. I still have them. They range from the first series to the sixth or seventh (over 800 in my collection). I was briefly into stamp collecting. I then moved on to collecting baseball cards. I still have those too (10,000 or so). I counted them, and kept them organized by team, player, manufacturer, and year. In high school, I became a fan of a rap group called Cypress Hill. I don't have all the memorabilia from that time, but there was a lot to begin with t-shirts, keychains, posters, and stuff from the fan club. Jurassic Park came out in theaters and I started my dinosaur collecting including books, fossils, and figurines. I didn't have much of a budget. Then came the Witchblade. There were comic books, snow globes, posters, and figurines. My favorite items being two limited edition statues. I became a fan of an Aracely Arambula and collected magazines, posters, CDs and DVDs. Then I started collecting memorabilia related to the band Tool. My favorite items being an RIAA issued platinum record and an album signed by all the band members. I bought a new car and after really enjoying the way it handled I collected as many Dodge Magnums toy cars I could find. That also led into die-cast model cars, but that died out very quickly when I realized how many cars that were out there that I wanted. I have tamed my collecting desires quite a bit. But when I visit Disneyland I can't help but over do it on the pins.
My interests: My main interest is photography, and now I collect items that allow me to take better photos.
