A sense of completion
last modified: Monday, July 12, 2010 (8:42:42 PM CST)
My ultimate wishlist for The Land Before Time arrived in the mail today. My reaction to receiving it isn't actually what I expected. Rather muted. I guess I'm in a little bit of shell shock.
It comes from rather early on in the movie, when Littlefoot first meets his mother. It's a very precious moment that made a great impression on a little me so many years ago.
The cel comes with the master background which runs 46" in length. I hope to acquire a few more cels from the sequences this background was used for.
Right now though I really feel a certain sense of completion.
At least for LBT anyway. :p

It's been a blast

I just realized last night that I've been collecting for six months now. It's certainly seemed longer than that, and I'm astounded that my collection has been able to grow so much in so short a time. In the last week I received three Killua wishlist cels which I've added to my gallery. So that's three down and 143 to go.
There's an added oomph to collecting from Hunter x Hunter because hours of googling, searching through every possible YJ search combination, and calling or emailing random and sometimes defunct cel galleries really makes it a Hunt.
In other news, a few weeks ago I bought the domain name http://berserkhunter.com
. I plan on putting some of my more favorite cels on there as well as having a list of cels I want to sell or take offers on. It'll also have some pictures of my other collections (keychains, collectibles, etc.) as well as a blog and whatever else I want to add to it. Please visit and bookmark it when you get the chance.

On the necessities of dialysis

This morning I received my first kidney cel, and boy was I, still am, and will be forever: esctatic. The cel of Guts and Caska was my first dream cel, something I didn't think I'd ever be able to see in real life, let alone own.
Now I guess I have to go sell one of my organs to pay for it, however. That's the dark side of cel collecting: wherever you see an absolutely outstanding cel in a collector's portfolio, there you see a collector without a matching set of kidneys. God help me when I find another such cel. Is it possible to survive with no kidneys at all? But I guess that question's beside the point.

From keychains to cels

I think some people have a propensity to addiction to collecting, and I am certainly one of them. As a young child, I collected rocks. Then I moved on to coins. Then anime/manga/video game keychains. Now, though I still keep up my coin and keychain collection, I've moved on to cels.
I think, from a mathematical perspective, this means I've been making an asymptotic approach to being penniless. Ah, such is the life of the noble vagabond cel collector. I knew what I was getting into, and I have no regrets for the future.
Hopefully, if one day I complete graduate school, I will be able to both collect cels and buy food.
