I must confess....

When I was a kid I loved collecting stickers. Had many a sticker book. The scratch & sniff were my favorite.I'm picturing a Pickle as I type. Not to leave out the googly eyed ones!
Was really into the Castle of Grey Skull ~ Orko Rocks!
As I got older I collected MAD magazine & MAD libs.
Now it's the GOGD among other music & books. Who knows what the next decade will bring, but Im sure it will come with a Kick Ass Sound Track :)

oh yeah, I almost forgot ~ I had a stint with Camel Cash too.

I have really enjoyed reading about the thing's you've all treasured, great topic Hal!
PK ~ your soo funny!!

PEACE

No doubt pk!

Amongst other random things I collected...I had a really nice Rock Collection from all over the world, which slowly built into seashells and coral. Twas fun.

Being a golf pro, I actually have a huge collection of golf balls of all the places I've played. It amazes me how big it's getting!

Hey folks I`m Stu

I used to collect cassett tapes , been to to many Dead shows then I can remember (unfortunatly ,the drugs where good but oh so BAD) .. As a little kid I always wanted to be a big truck driver or a train conducter.. so after following The Dead , I took a break got clean and went to truck drivivng school . then I really got to travle ! and remember it .. I went from otr driving (over the road or long hual) to local driving in N.J. where i grew up at .. got back into going to Dead shows in the north east .. Then we lost Jerry , and I just lost it , quit my job ,sold my car, sold all my electronics ( forgot to mention that I also had a cb radio repair shop ) .. I bought a motorcycle travled the country . That really helped clear my head . Then I ended up living in Cedar Bluff Alabama for like a year or so . It was the dead of winter 20 degrees and snowing . I decided to head further south and yes I was still on my bike in the snow .. I finally landed here in Jacksonville FL. in 1996 .. at that time I only had a very small collection of music . I got married in 2003 , my wife had a computer but i was soo old school , I did`nt want anything to do with these things .. about two years ago my mom gave me her old laptop (this one) , I found Dead.net and thats it , I was finally ready to get back to the music , and I have been downloading and vining non-stop ever since !! well vining for little over a year ..
my collection has grown so big that I really don`t know what I have ..lol .. I got a 500 gig hard a few months ago and it`s almost full !! not to mention everything i do have burned to disc ..
with that said , I have to give HUGE Thank you`s to everyone that has helped me back to what I love so much !! Thank you Bob , who put my name on my first vine (the KFFM vine) . and thank you Tim and Rick and everyone who has seeded vines and everyone who just sent me music out of the kindness of their hearts !! This truley is the most beutiful place on the internet ! I have never met a kinder person then the people I have met here at Dead.net !!
So Thank you everone !! Much love for all of you !! I wish nothing but the BEST for all of you !! Thank you oh so much .. Peace and sunshine to all !!
(i know there is a typo somewhere and i can`t find it now) oh well post..

Hi. My name is pkpotter and

Hi.
My name is pkpotter and I am a gratfulholic.
I know, it's a problem...it's a good problem though.
Has a nice ring to it.
Searching for the sound.
So you buy American Beauty on lp when it comes out, buy it again when it gets scratched at your friends party, buy it again when you scratch it yourself, buy it agian when the cover is "worn", buy the cd when the new format comes out, buy the japan import cd to get better sound, buy the remastered hdcd when it comes out, then the dvd audio when it comes out, then buy the Golden Road box set to get "the full package", then buy the rhino remaster lp, then........realize you are a gratfulholic.

I used to collect dinosaurs, monster models, comic books,

Creepy magaizines, Famous Monsters of Filmland, and then much later wandered into this wonderful world of the Grateful Dead. It used to be tapes (like with Birdsong, I still recall that 9-20-70 tape, hissing as I strained to listen to an acoustic Truckin') but now it is these tasty soundboards, delightful audience, and marvelous matrix. And I have been able to add in many other artists and bands (Neil, CSNY, PinkFloyd, Jackson Brown, Rowan, Sam Bush, etc.) thanks to my growing obsession and all of your fine help. My wife shakes her head at me (I haven't told her my ranking as a vine slut yet however, that will put her over the edge) and laughs but she was there with me at so many shows/roads. AND I can't tell you how many times you (MITD, & crew) make me bust out laughing.

Grate tunes, fantastic friends, fine brothers AND sisters!

The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.

Hi I'm Birdsong1969NJ

Well, since I have now been coined a top 10 vine slut, I should probably say hello in this forum.

I am Geoff. I have a wife, 2 very small children (as of today 20 months (boy) & 16 weeks (girl). I am a chef running a restaurant in New York City. I live in Westfield, New Jersey in a mortgage, I mean a house.

I love every aspect of the Grateful Dead. I am proud to be a Deadhead. I am not nor have I ever been a hippie. I was a teenage tour rat in the mid-80's. By my 18th birthday I had crossed the country 5 times. I had made residences in places like San Francisco, CA; Newark, Delaware; Lawrence, KS, Boulder, CO; and Burlington, VT respectively.

I saw my last Dead show in 1990. I was absolutely torn by Mydland's header with a speedball. I dropped the Grateful Dead for this band called Phish in 1989 through about 1991. They were a Burlington bar band and I was known to haul equipment around VT, MA, NH, and ME for them for a couple of years.

I broke up with Phish and went to college. I graduated in 1993 and moved to Berkeley, CA where I resided and honed my career. Jerry died when I was there. I really died with him musically. I turned briefly to Ska, Grunge, Punk and even Hip Hop.

About 6 years ago I moved back to Vermont and hooked up with a lot of old friends who were all grown up with families. One of my friends is an avid collector of live Dead and had tremendous hook ups.

I started listening again. It was all new once more. The last time I had collected live Dead it was cassettes and my best quality show was the worn out Freedom Hall 74 show. Now I had access to such sweet SDB's and had met some great tapers. With the internet becoming the way to get music my collection blossomed and my love is back...totally.

Since my last show in March of 1990 I had seen exactly one Grateful Dead affiliated show. Rat Dog 2 summers ago in Central Park which was 8 blocks from my home. I ponied up a large chunk of change and am going to see The Dead @ MSG. I can't wait. I already have one rolled up.

I just want to take this time to thank from the bottom of my heart everybody who has seeded a vine on this site that I have added to my collection. You have enriched my life more then you could ever know. I have such a quality collection that only a few years ago I could have never dreamed of.

I want to close by saying also that I appreciate the freedom and ease of this forum. When a few vines took me almost 3 weeks to get out no came down on me (except for MITD, but he doesn't count:0D!!), and I really appreciate that. I hope the vibe stays the same.

How could I have Forgotten?

Collecting Live Audience Concert Tapes by the Grateful Dead! This was it for me in the late 70's to late 80's.

Viners - Out of the closet!

OK, I posted this in the New Vines topic, but thought that this was more the place for it. So I hope some of you other viners jump in and admit it.

Out of the closet about being collectors, that is what I am talking about. Did I fool you?

Women just don’t tend to be the obsessive collectors that guys generally are. I’ll be honest - now it is vines. As a kid it was rocks and minerals, stamps, coins, insects, models, Matchbox cars (that must date me). As a teenager it became records. As an adult it has been books, journals and magazines, more books, Fillmore and Avalon postcards, records still and then CDs and now guitars and the newest is vines. OK out with it, I have admitted my obsessive collecting compulsions. What about yours?
