View Full Version : What do you collect?

Apart from NIN of course.

Mine used to be NIN, then I moved on to Tool. Now my primary collecting concerns are all to do with Danzig, and to a smaller capacity the Sacrifice era of Gary Numan's work.


I also collect anything to do with William Peter Blatty and his films/novels. They're my two primary eBay searches.

What about you? It can range from stamps to dildos.

I collect Ducati models, I have almost 20 so far, no duplicate models.
I collect old coins and banknotes.
I collect games. I have hundreds on Steam, Origin, Desura and retail boxes.

I may post pictures some other time.

What's your most prized item - either of you guys?

Mine is a recently-purchased 1992-era Lucifuge cross that Danzig threw into the crowd at a gig circa '92. Lots of replicas available; this one is the real deal, bought from a good mate of mine who was at the gig:

most prized records include:

ivy's day- in another time 7''
opera de nuit- opera de nuit LP/amour noir 12''
babel 17- celeano fragments LP
eskimos & egypt- the cold 7''
obscure by degrees- i'm dying 7''

or rather, those are the most expensive and hard to come by ones, as well as records that never leave my side when DJing...

Prints (Jacob Bannon, Daniel Danger, JC Richard, various other screenprints).
Vintage circus sideshow imagery, posters, etc.
Anything Batman related, statues, action figures, big on foreign stuff.

photography gear (Micro 4/3). think I might have a fetish. seems like I'm more of a collector of the gear than an actual photographer...

Apart from NIN, my only other music collection is Bowie, but only 1995 to present day. Singles, alternate editions, promo stuff, everything.

I also collect everything that has to do with the Sandman comic books (statues, spin-offs, etc) and everything from Neil Gaiman. If somebody has a copy of his Duran Duran book for sale I sure would appreciate it :)

We did accumulate a good amount of random comic book stuff, but only on a "whatever we like" basis, that didn't get obsessive and out of hand (thank god).

BTW, I'm VERY lucky, because my wonderful wife shares my collecting interest, and the comics/Neil Gaiman thing is something we do together.

I used to collect matchboxes. Clearly, not worthwhile anymore.

I collect birdy things - a bit more girly than some of the collections mentioned above...I love birds and, even though it seems really trendy right now, I don't care - if I see a cute bird thing that I have room for, I will buy it. I have a huge tree with perching birds wall decal in my stairwell and I love it. Was worried it was going to look cheap and lame, but it works.

My sister recently starting collecting vintage/weird salt and pepper shakers, which I wish I would have thought of, as I think they'll make a neat display once she's got a sizeable collection.

I collect Deadpool comic books. I might not have that many (only have around 30 or so) but I only started not that long ago either and I also have a few other comics like Venom, AVX and some X-Force.

Disappointment :(

I collect Norman Rockwell things. I don't go out of my way to acquire them, but when I find them at garage sales, thrift stores, things like that I buy em.
I also have a couple small Rage Against The Machine and Beastie Boys cd collections with a lot of promos and rare singles.

I don't collect them, but I have a ton of and will pretty much always buy creepy/strange knick knacks.. I have this hand painted poodle that's eyes are really weird... I like it.

fortune cookie fortunes, although I have not gotten chinese food in a while so the collecting has kinda stopped. The ones I have currently are mod-podged to the frame of a large mirror.
