Since I just took this photo, I thought I'd share it... 14 years' worth of Wired magazine, every single issue except for the first three (1.01, 1.02, and 1.03). The vertical bookcase is a Sapien, from Design Within Reach (DWR). These magazines have been sitting in my closet for YEARS and I finally decided to bring them out into the light.

I really like that shelf! Thanks for posting it. Is that the tall or short one?

BThis is the tall one... there's really no reason to buy the short one, unless you need to fit it under something. (It's $250 for the 14-shelf* tall version, $200 for the 10-shelf short version.) I have a second Sapien (opposite side of the room) which is home to all of my hardcover SF novels. They're really well-designed shelves, and they're visually striking.

Anyway, other collections I have (some of which you may have seen): Art collection, Playboy magazine (every issue going back to 1988, save for a few which my Mom tossed when I still lived at home), DVDs, Microsoft polo shirts, CDs.

* 14 years' of magazines fit on 13 shelves because the first year was only 6 bimonthly issues and I have only three of them. At some point, I will have to do a bit of reshuffling to make sure everything still fits.

Nice collection. I have about 80% of the issues of Powder Magazine (Skiing) from the last 35ish years.

Two collections. One is my PC gaming magazine collection. Have a few PC gamer Magazines from 1997 to 2000 along with that, 60-some Computer Gaming World magazine from 1999 to now. The ones you see in the pic are the recent ones. The 2001 and older are tightly stored in a container that I don't want to disturb. Funny literature though. "OMG Quake I HAS THE TIGHTEST GRAPHICS!!!"

Then a nice Charlie Brown comic book collection that my father had accumulated back in the day. I think the oldest one is 1955 or so.

:eek: I'm a little jealous!
I had all the books up to, and including the 50th one.
But I lost them over the years lending them to people:(

I collect Mariah CDs (I have over 100 rare promos, singles, etc.). My whole CD collection is shown and some of my other stuff, but this is by no means everything. I have several autographs, posters, magazines, LPs, etc not shown.

And please, I don't really want your personal opinion on it if you happen to hate Mariah with every fiber of your being.

Not really. Just been collecting for 8 years and I buy every release, etc. It adds up.

Haha, I actually collect coins too! My grandfather sends them to me. Take up a huge amount of room.

And most of the M stuff is neatly tucked away; CDs in a CD tower, etc. Don't take up much room at all. And believe me, my collection is SMALL. I know many people who have 1000+ CDs.

You have to remember, Mariah has over 10 studio releases with 4-5 singles on each. Makes for a lot of CDs.

Yes, technically my MR name is Mariah related. Don't really like it actually; I thought of something quick because I use that SN a lot for "throwaway" accts, so I could remember it. I didn't think I would become a regular!
Lullaby is a Mariah song, btw.

My collection of Scrooge McDuck and Disney, TinTins, Snoopys, Taxi mag, numerous graphic novels and old history books (my favorite being Robertsons America).

The box set of Snoopy books I saw went for $300-400 at a bookstore several years ago.

I was never too impressed seeing that bookcase with a few random books.. but it looks really cool with those magazines !

I don't understand what's so creepy about collecting her CDs and magazine's for God's sake. I'm not going to try and defend myself...I'm just saying, I'm not stalking the woman.

I had the unfortunate oppertunity to be in the presence of the "Mariah" a few years back when I was working at MTV. A bit of a b*tch. And not in a good way.

Your obsession will one day pass...

The only thing i'm collecting at the moment is college bills... but I did have a large collection of EVO magazines once upon a time. Think I was only missing 8 or so.

Why keep wired magazine? It feels so much like a big ad mag to me. :confused:

I'm sorry I ever posted those pictures. Since when did a board of strangers get the right to judge me based on my collection of CDs?

Go ahead, think she's a b*tch. I personally don't care.

Wasn't judging you in the least.

My comment about being a b*tch was from first hand experience.
She treated everyone in the room with total disregard and rudeness. God forbid she had to be in the presence of people who actually work. And work to make her look good for that matter

Trust me, she would walk all over you in a second regardless of how much of a fan you were.

She doesnt deserve your adoration or your hard earned cash imo.

I completely agree. I don't dislike Mariah or judge you or anything, I just think you'd be disappointed if you met her. Oh, and a word of advice, people: NEVER show any large, not entirely normal (anything but CDs, DVDs, comic books) collections on an internet forum.
And lullaby, rethink the poster over your bed please.

Please tell me you listen to other music though!

Yes of course, I'm not crazy. I listen to all kinds of other music. And I don't love everything Mariah has done, there's plenty of her songs I hate. But she's my favorite.

And I've met Mariah on several occasions in several different contexts. She's human. Yes, like every other human, she can be b*tchy sometimes; and she's over-the-top and grandiose. She gets tired and stressed sometimes, like anyone. But to her FANS -- not necessarily to a stranger who is talking to her just because she's famous or they know "We Belong Together" -- she is amazing. She has extremely close relationships to her fans and treats us really well. And in general, Mariah is a really caring, beautiful person.

She treated everyone in the room with total disregard and rudeness. God forbid she had to be in the presence of people who actually work. And work to make her look good for that matter

I also hate that everyone assumes that because she is an entertainer, she must not work hard. And give me an example of her treating "everyone" with rudeness. And disregard? What did you want from her?

wow, I am really a boring guy. I have no collection of anything per se. I guess I have a decent size cd collection. However, they're all in binders, so it's not something to "show" in a thread.

My only 'collection' is my Edge magazines, plus the special editions and all ten covers of the 'Tenth Anniversary' issue. I've subscribed since issue 1, and about eleven/twelve years later it's on issue 168.

No pictures though, since the old issues are bagged and in the attic, and the current issues are under the bed.

Don't feel bad. I have no collections to speak of either. I thought I did until I saw this thread and looked around my place. :(

I've got nothing except a rather large collection of porn. No magazines or DVD's, just downloaded content, and it's probably not a good idea to post a screenshot of the folder in which they are contained... you thought mariahlullaby's post was freaky... :eek:
