I have been collecting all of them since I was in high school. Please get in touch with me, too! :)

I collect vinyl records, and I agree, most people are all surprised that I do it but not at all surprised that my boyfriend does...so weird.
yeah yeah yeah!
hi! i am actually pretty new [within the past few years] to collecting but i have built up a pile of a few hundred awesome cassette tapes! i am so into it, always looking for more. i would love to be interviewed!!!
I collect cassettes!
I collect records and have a modest cassette collection! My partner does too (records, no cassettes), but although we've lived together for 10 years, I'm adamant about keeping my collection separate! Partly because I do feel an obligation to buck the idea that the records are the guy's hobby! I kept my record player and use it in my studio, even though he has a nicer one.
One big difference between our lp collections is size - his is roughly twice the size of mine, I have about 250. His 'collector' mindset drives him to own albums he thinks are important; and to have multiple copies of albums (shittier quality ones to play on his portable players that are hard on vinyl); and to own the entire discography of a favorite artist, even though those last few albums suck and he never listens to them. Etc.
Whereas I am always whittling mine down into a well-edited concentration of albums I love. No Zeppelin, no Tiny Tim, no late Neil Young, no Captain Beefheart (sorry).
