    Off topic OT: Whats your other obessions?

    First of all.. sorry for posting so much everywhere these last few days.. Its really slow at work from time to time. People are still on vacation and all servers are keeping in line with what they are told.. so I got a lot of "spare" time.. ehum.

    Ok.. I remember reading about the actual collection obsession and its the actual hunt for something that are most fun.. and the wait. Then when you have it you are happy but the "adrenaline" are gone and you are already looking for the next "fix".

    So my question to G-shock members.. what more "obsessions" do you have?

    Here are mine as an example.
    - Espresso (the actual making of a single/double shot of espresso, beans machines etc)

    - Limited edition DVD editions from Asia and US. For example. Old Boy Ultimate handmade copper box, JP release of I robot (Sony head replica) etc..

    - Plush Snowmen from Gotta Get Gund

    - latest obsession is G-shocks...

    Obsession is what it is.. more then a hobby I would say or?.

    Cool Re: OT: Whats your other obessions?

    Coins (mostly gold, some platinum and a few silver). My two favorite coins:

    trozau (troy ounce gold)

    gold - the barbarous relic!

    Does anybody really know what time it is?

    I've gone through many a fad but am pretty much stuck with watches now. I tend to hyper focus on my interests and have to be careful not to remortgage the house sometimes! Luckily I'm crazy over G-Shocks not Rolex's!

    I went through a brief but weird phase of buying swords of ebay (started after buying a replica 'Kill Bill' one!) Bit strange that one which luckily I came to my senses about!

    I then became mildly addicted to online gaming especially World of Warcraft, (not that I'm a geek of course!) but just don't have to the time to play these days with work and family coming first.

    So my main interest now apart from Gym and watching films is collecting watches and browsing this strange forum!

    Watches are frickin evil!

    Cutepape, I'd love to see a pic of your Old Boy limited edition! One of my favourite films wasn't aware that limited packaging even existed.

    I'm also a fan of Asian films, in particular 'A Tale of Two Sister' 'Ichi the Killer' and the Vengeance trilogy. Not to mention the basic horrors, Ringu, Grudge(Ju-on) etc etc

    Watches are frickin evil!

    That headphone amp is a nice looking thing, I must say... I used to spend a lot of time on hi-fi, but have now managed to convince myself that what I have is all that I need.

    My other main interest is jazz. I subscribe to magazines, read books, browse catalogues, keep lists, and so on. Naturally, my CDs are all in artist/date order.

    Oh and recently, I've been a bit keen on mechanical pencils.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I started collecting functional, traditionally made swords (not replicas), but it quickly became very expensive. I prefer watches because you can use/wear them. The few swords I still have are higher maintainence than all my watches put together.

    Hoochy,

    found some old pictures from the first day I open the packaging :)
    Note:
    as you can see the backs of the sleeves were damaged since they were torn against the copper door. This was resolved 3 weeks later when the manufacturer sent out replacement sleeves if you emailed them. Really nice of them to do that without any cost for the customer at all.

    Sereph,

    DS lite, Wii and PSP is also something I love to play when I get time.. unfortunately not to often now days :(
    I collected the Clive Barker Tortured Souls collections.. had them all in a glas cabinett before I moved over to Dublin.. now they are in a box :(
    Do you have the Matrix Neo bust too? The acrylic 10DVD collection set? I bought it but have no place to put it.. LOL

    Re: OT: Whats your other obessions?

    I have never had an obsessive/addictive personality which makes it hard for me to get people's obsessions. However, I've always been into wildlife, planting trees and recreating habitat. Like a non-hyper Crocodile Man...I wish I could buy a bottle of what ever he was on.

    I did have a fascination with watches when I was little, but my parents completely discouraged me from it. Year after year, they refused to get me a watch. I had to look on with envy at all my school mates who had watches. Parents are such idiots.
