Odd things you collect
For me it would be coffee mugs, bookmarks, and towels.share
Nothing these days but when I was a kid I used to collect stamps. I don't know what happened to the album.share
Got too close to the post office?share
I used to know a guy who lived like a pauper but supposedly had a lot of valuable stamps and coins in his possession. I hope he was able to cash them in. He's a very thoughtful and humble person. One of the best.share
Nothing now. I despise clutter. When I was in my twenties I collected those books you get in the mail that are leather bound and classics..Little Women..Alice in Wonderland etc.. They were 50$ a book per month. I still have about 30-40 of them in boxes.share
You can donate them to a library and count them against your taxes. Maybe.share
VHS,DVD,BLU-RAY,CD,MOVIE MEMORABILIA,LOS ANGELES LAKER STUFF...AND DICE...I HAVE A BUCKET OF DICE I HAVE BEEN ADDING TO SINCE I WAS A KID.share
...DID I UNINTENTIONALLY MENTION MY STOLEN DICK COLLECTION???share
Nope, sorry i didn't catch that part. The bucket of dice caught my attention.share
STARTED AS A KID...DICE WERE CHEAP AND SMALL AND WIDELY AVAILABLE...GREAT SOUVENIRS...NOW ITS KIND OF A FAMILY THING,FINDING DICE AND THROWING IN THE POT.A RAINBOW OF COLORS,SIZES,AGES,STYLES.share
Dice have styles? What do you mean?share
I actually have a two "cells" signed by Chuck Jones of Bugs Bunny and Daffy. I really loved the Looney Tunes, and they are beautiful but probably not worth what I paid for them.share
Yah is 1200$ a piece cute when they're in a box in my garage. Oh I don't regret buying them. I wanted pretty things in my 20s.. Now I know that doesn't really make you happy.share
Hell yeah. Bugs is the man!! Er...rabbit. Whatever, he's still wicked cool.share
I had a fine collection of pro sports team hats.share
A Christmas Carol - when we first got married my wife and I got into discussion about how many different versions there were. We started picking them up. We currently have 64. Thank god for digital copies to cut down the clutter.share
Have you determined how many total versions there were? Are there still some that you're actively searching for? That's very interesting.share
We started this in 1995. Not counting TV series episode adaptations, we've found 87 different adaptations (4 are not yet released). To my knowledge, 6 of the original eight no longer exist in any form. The first was from 1901 which no longer exists except for a few stills. The earliest one I have a copy from is 1910. The hardest one I had trouble finding was John Grin's Christmas with Robert Guillaume. It was broadcast once in 1988 and never shown again. I looked for 12 years before someone put a copy online which I was able to download.
We're currently trying to find copies of the TV movies from 1947, 1964 (Mr. Scrooge), 1977, & 1978.
Note: I made a typo in my original count which I've corrected
Do you still watch them? Do you have a favorite? Are there any horrible B-movie versions among them? Sorry for asking so many questions, this is really quite fascinating to me.share
1970 Scrooge is easily my favorite followed by 1951 Alistair Simm. Thankfully converting them to digital saves the originals. Some of the older ones on VHS are sitting in a drawer since my VCR crapped out on me and can't replace it. Maybe I'll spend the money to convert them someday.
B-Movie? Maybe Tori Spelling's version could have been better & I've never watched Michael Moore's copy. Just picked it up to complete the set. Surprisingly one that gets a lot of flack is Karroll's Christmas but I actually like it.
