I collect people

Interesting ones.

You're one of them.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

In 2013... back again... I am "collecting" those by the new dozens (everybody ought to do the same, whatever they can afford - a little will always be better than nothing).

Oh yeah.

It is not too late, folks. But, for how much longer?

Stay safe.

Thanks for your wonderful insights~

Reminds me of a passage in the book of Proverbs, chapter 10:14.
"Wise men lay up knowledge..."

I enjoy collecting and organizing information that could be helpful to myself and others in the future. With the internet and youtube there are so many different formats people can learn from.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

.

.

Nothing.

I have a fear of becoming a horder like those people on TV.

Probably stems from the OCD I used to have.

Stuff I collect

Metal lunch boxes, vinyl records and concert posters.

Practice targets.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Pottery

The wife and I have travelled all over, my collection actually pre-dates our marriage, but we make a point of getting a piece or two where ever we go.

I just sort of backed into this because I found something that I was drawn to.

I know where I got most of my pieces however I should have been / should be more diligent in keeping track and writing down the date and location where I acquired them all. There's a good memories that go with each piece. Right now I'm in Saudi Arabia...and will surely track down a piece or two.

For example I was in Bharain several weeks ago...stopped in a pottery place that we'd seen signs for along the road, in a place where we really shouldn't have been given the religious / political strife in the country. The pottery was of questionable quality, most of it unfinished, and nothing I really liked or was unique in any way. Pottery Barn rejects. It was sad because in almost every place I visit there is at least one piece that catches my fancy and says "Take me home, I'm like you." You could tell this place had suffered the effects of the civil tension...the heart had done out of the place; whoever the real artist was, he had taken his soul elsewhere. I'll go back...just to get a humble piece that tells that tale.

Years

I have almost 60 of them now & I can't seem to stop collecting them.

Ha!

Better to keep collecting than stop, eh?

I collect vernacular photography

I go to flea-markets and rummage through boxes and find snap- shots of people and their families from days gone by. Most of the ones I find are from the 1960's and 70s, but sometimes I find some from the WWII era.

Here is a website that shows samples of vernacular photography. If you go through the archives, there are lots of great and funny photos and shows what real people were doing, wearing and eating a long time ago:

I collect guitars

Hoping that one day I may find a magic one that I can actually play well haha

Like this?

Probably some normal things...

...like most people, but I have one weird one. I just love bi-centennial quarters! I don't know why because they aren't worth more. I don't have a ton of them, but when I get one, I have to save it.

My hobby is Thinking

and I collect thoughts.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Hahahaha!

That's cool! I like that one!

Stamps. Fun. Cheap. Great way to learn American History

Fun fact:

The price of postage went down from 5 cents to 2 cents until 1932, the depths of the depression, when the priced was raised 50% to 3 cents - The largest ever percentage-wise rate increase ever.

OMG PANDAS!!! LOCK UP THE CHILDREN!!!
