Hey Wes,

You're doing it right!

I did have a (burned) copy of the IOA soundtrack at some point, but it got stolen along with a bunch of music CD's when my band played a show at a sketchy club in Hollywood.

Oh you tease.

Haha Wes; wasn't it you who made fun of me for talking about Kennywood all the time? Oh well, I guess we're all guilty...

Seeing this makes me feel cool! All I have is 2 on-ride pictures, some DVDs/Books, and a box of brochures.

And the reason you weren't getting any wasn't because of the Alpie poster... :lolr:

Wes, DIE!

I finally read this thread. I actually have some of this stuff---the David Bennett Roller Coaster book, a Goliath cap from media day, and a Dodonpa shirt (yes, it was from Stan Checketts at one of the Solaces).

I also have a Riddler's Revenge cap from that ride's media day, and I'll have to find my picture taken on Riddler's Revenge with myself and three other bearded guys (with hair and beards spraypainted green) in the front row on media day.

Yeah, and half the reason I do make poke fun at people who seem obsessive with the hobby is to possibly make them realize there's more to life than being completely consumed with it. I was in that boat for a couple of years and it was stupid.

Yeah, but once I branched out, I started to even with the Alpengeist and CCI posters still up. Better hurry up, you only got four years until the world ends to score dood!!!

Well, I wouldn't say being "obsessed" with theme parks/coasters is stupid. Or maybe I'm not in deep enough to be considered "obsessed", but that's what some people say. But hey, I'd love to stop by KI every other day to ride Drop Zone and FoF! Some think it's cool and tell me to pursue my interest, and others think I'm a wierd. Maybe a few things like collecting insignificant objects, adding patches to a jacket, or buying all the memorabilia to your favorite park may seem silly, but I wouldn't say it's stupid. Although I could definitely vouch for it being a reason a girl would scream and run away. But look at Robb and Elissa! ;)

Being obsessed with anything is stupid. Hobby, video game, job, significant other, whatever. I'm not saying you shouldn't love whatever it may be, but obsessing about it is an unhealthy way to live.

I think it may be an age thing, I see quite a few teens (12-18) who I would put in the obsessed catagory. Things change when you get older and into the real world (ie: not living off your parents), priorities tend to shift around quite a bit. I don't think it was a BAD thing coasters were my main hobby, especially since it was just a phase of my young life. If I was still the same way at 25 now, then it would be a bit more troubling.

Wes, good to see you turned back before it was too late, and that we are not reminescing about fatty patch Wes from ACE.

I've got an opening year at SFMM Flashback commerative cup, that's about it for me, oh and a hash pipe shaped Top Thrill Dragster opening year bottle. Wonder if people would pay money for them I don't want them.
