I have Google alerts set for my favourite current artists; Jack White, Nick Cave, and Tim Minchin. That way I get the heads-up on tours, new releases and other items of interest. Occasionally I get links to blog sites about these guys and once in a while something fascinating, like the 10 weirdest Jack White collectables.
I’m not a collector myself, but there are some interesting ones in here and I do rather fancy the mini-Theremin.
A search on collectables gets a squillion hits and narrowing it to rock and roll collectables still gets more than I can possibly follow. Lists, dreams, aspirations and places like this to buy stuff you simply must have.
As I said, I don’t collect this kind of stuff myself, but it seems a lot of people do and I know some Splatters collect stuff from Star Wars and Doctor Who for starters. If I was less strapped for cash and time I might even do it myself.
Anyway as we start a new week, I’m wondering how your weekend went and what’s coming up this week.
I’m also wondering what is the weirdest/fanciest/most treasured collectable in your possession or on your wish list? Do your friends have collectables that amaze, puzzle or jealousify you?
I’m also wondering, why is jealousify not a word?
