    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?

    This 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.

    ->mariahlullaby: That's why I collect coins. Take up much less space.

    Edit: Hey! does your of MR name have anything to with Maria too?

    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 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...
    Its time to start moving on my Macintosh friend...

    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.
