i was alweys one of those guys who was friends with a few kids out of each click. but ive alweys been a individual, guess i would fit into the stoner category if i had to choose one,lol, i alweys have just done my own thing, i never really cared what anyone else was doing, i just got into stuff that i enjoyed and met other people along the way who shared my interests.
i love music and im alweys checking out new bands to find something that will really get my attention. and i draw alot. collecting action figures is my addiction though, anyone who knows me knows i collect toys. i started collecting a lot when i became sobre, i needed something to keep me occupied and it worked out great. been sobre for almost 2 yrs now with only a few relapses, lol so i think im doing pretty good.

You don't fit the STEROTYPICAL look of a collector, but I could pick you out of a crowd.

Most people don't think I'm a geek. But I am.
Although I don't look the part, many of my friends are the anime-d&d-bsg-otaku types. My friends and I had multiple discussions the other night about why Luke Skywalker just didn't shoot Vader and the Emperor.
Not to mention most of my money goes towards toys. Hey, its beats drugs any day.

im very blunt and very bold. im a glutton for punishment. i like getting into fights and antagonising people. i like hitting on chicks with things i know other people would love to say but are afraid to. life is a joke to me and nothing effects me very much.
i love all conspiracies occult/alien theories. the more outlandish the better. i also study psychology, history, political figures, technology, buddhism, and random things constantly. i like film analysis, especially involving stanley kubrick. big fan of the exorcist 1&3 films also.
im a horror artist, game editor, science fiction author, musician, poet, performance artist, etcetera. my house looks like the one from house of a thousand corpses except with more liqour bottles everywhere. i like to either be creative or drunk. or both in the case of music.
despite my appearance and demeanor in real life im actually quite brilliant, cultured, and wealthy. i think i try to ward people off by looking "however" because i generally find people to be uninteresting and a waste of my time. im quite rude to people and enjoy laughing at the expense of others.
im also an egomaniac and enjoy talking about myself far too much!
Im a jerk
/edit... im putting this on my myspace profile hahahaha

I'm a total geek when it comes to toys but I don't think most people would ever think I am just by looking at me on the street. I love listening to good music, watching good movies, watching and playing baseball, going to WDW and Disneyland all of the time, hiking and working out. But I also happen to love collecting toys and also am a huge Star Trek (TOS only) and Star Wars nerd. I also love to just relax and drink a few brews every once in awhile. Everybody is unique and sometimes we don't always fit into the "stereotypical" fanboy mold.

I'm 33 year old Puerto Rock(Puerto Rican). I've been in love with Joes since there debut in 82', the 3 3/4 joints. I was born and raised in the Boogie down Bronx, NY. I lived in NY for the younger part of my years and moved to Tampa Fl. during junior high. I got good grades and wasn't very popular with the "In" crowd, on the account of being too crude. I ran with a small crew of people like me. Kids from up north. A Puerto Rican from Manhattan named Mike(Chozen), a Cuban kid from Newark NJ named Danny(Les One), and a black kid named Dwayne(Shaki). I was J One. We were called O.D.Q., later changed to O.S.B.
During high school, I use to sell "Cigz"(wink) , rolled with two papers for four dollars a piece. I stopped doing that when it started to affect my schoolwork, my momz didn't want me grow up to be some ignorant thug. Then I got into music and formed a group with my peeps. That didn't take off so I started to sell hand painted T-shirts with grafitti.
While all this was happening I always advertised my love for Joe and toys in general. Not a really big collector during those times but enough to raise eye brows.
I always been about the dips(pretty ladies) and kept my tongue sharp to mash(connect) with the the woman of the Sunshine state, they loved the way I got down during the high school days. Not so much the grown-up years.
Late 20's became a full-blown alcoholic until 31. The repercussions started to bear exsistence in the form of stomach problems, mainly my pancreas. I quit drinking and been sober for two years. I got two kids, a boy and a girl. I'm self employed, got two baby mama's, and make music.(Hip Hop). Oh, and I buy way too many toys. From Joes to comic figures. I'm in love ebay.
Anyway, thats part of my story. The juicy parts are reserved for the book. On the bottom is a link to my first video. Check if interested.

I am 24 years old and work in the family Business,
I never read any comics till I was 21 and start collecting toys around the drop of wave 2 of the star wars 30th anniversary line.....(White Boba) I Hate sports!! They bore the ever loving Sh** out of me... I was a towel boy for the Detroit Pistons for about 6 years started when I was about 8-10 funny....I stopped playing with Joes around 8 or 10. I didn't pick up another one till I was in my 20's... I have a girlfriend of almost 10 years, that actually supports my toy habits... That's a understatement she Funds my toys 1/2 the time...(picking up most stuff before I even find it) Oh n she took me to my first Con (wizard) n she wants to go to Comic Con some day. I collect only Joes and a Few Select Star wars figures but, With the new marvel figures coming out I could easily see myself starting up on some of them... Well it's late n I can't even believe I wrote this much down at 4:45am n having to get up at 9am to start the shopping madness..... Yes I waited till the absolute last moment to get the 1/2 Dozen Chocolate Strawberry's n Flowers..... And A F'ing Card that's like almost a Silver Pimp Daddy Destro were talking about here... Haha
