Black Sabbath CDs (And all related - Ozzy - Iommi - GZR - Dio - Bill Ward) - Especially on a bootleg live kick now. Sometimes these are better than the "Official" live recordings - sometimes they sound like a tape recorder in someone's coat pocket. :lol:

I collect LPs, new, old, common, and hard-to-find.
My collection is growing, and I've been an audiophile for quite some time with some really nice gems in the mix.
I used to collect coins, but mostly buy older coins for my dad. I bought him some Confederate currency last year.

I have a passion for AD&D, and all of the first/second edition books. I have quite the collection gathered.
I am also a big fan of old Noma christmas lights. Mazda lamps, GE C6, C7 bulbs, oil based bubble lights, etc.

I went through a vintage D&D collecting phase. I LOVED D&D as a kid and was part of an amazing game in college. We played every Sun. night for 13 months. My DM is a former (waaaaaaay back) board member and the sole reason I got into Valiant (which led me to all comics)....

Anyways, I really like just reading the vintage D&D stuff.

I had a pretty good collection going, but I've sold it all.

Yup.
D&D reminds me of much better times.

I also collect hockey jerseys. I have around 50.

I can't say I collect LP's but I have gotten back into records in the last year or so and have had a ball picking up thrift store and yard sale bargains.

My real passion, other than VALIANT comics, is Vintage audio equipment, especially gear from the "golden age" of audio, 1975-1985, although I no longer really have the time or the skill to get a piece of equipment on the bench to work on myself but I have a couple of "go to" tech's now if I find something I really want. What got me into records again was I had a Thorens td 147 Jubilee table restored (didn't need much and cosmetically was perfect) and I wanted to use it regularly.
I am selling "nothing" on ebay-yet.

Not right now... currently, I'm picking up the occasional He-Man figure and there are a few lines that if I see and have the cash, I try to grab like Visionaries, Spiral Zone, and Inhumanoids :)

Eventually, I'd like to get back to MASK and COPS :)

I also collect Blu-ray movies but because of money issues have had to slow that WAY down..

I still have about 252 Blu-ray movies and 103 HD DVD movies in my collection right now.

Do you have separate players, or did you buy an all-in-one?

If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

In addition, I'm right.

it might be the sony player lol for some reason blu looks a touch better but they have been improving and hd has been gone a while so it might be the newer ones just look better due to newer tech.

Wait a minute SONY ??????? They Never made a unit that played both Blu-ray and HD DVD...

Panasonic made a Duel and LG made a duel machine that was it. The format war ended before anyone else would throw there hat into that fire.

The unit (machine) you are talking about plays regular DVD movies and Blu-rays NOT HD DVD the losing format (in the red cases).
