i love your lil collection of tiny pigs! i love piggies and i have one very cute little plush that i got from a japanese toy store, but that's the extent of my pig collection...i should collect more... :surprise:

i'm obsessed with dragons, so i like to collect dragons of all kinds, like figurines and jewelry and such. my partner also keeps a very large collection of dragonball z figures, but specifically cell and cooler lmao. we also like oddities and we're currently working on a bedroom remodel with new shelving to show off our collection of little weird and morbid items.

Insects and stuff are cool... But I'm also a bit freaked out by them (when they're moving around). We have the same kinda deck of cards! :)

I don't know what I'd drop, really. I guess I can snap a photo of the small things laying around my desk when I get back (going for a walk with the dog), but I doubt it'll be as personal as yours!

Edit: These are some of the things I always fiddle with!

Oooo, trinkets!!!! One of my passions!!!
I drop a lot of items when slain, but they're all super low value

I have a long shelf just filled with trinkets!! Some are memories, some mean something to me, some are just neat. I was actually thinking that I'd love to make transparent graphics out of many of them and have a section on my website that can be a "virtual shelf", in case something happens to them irl :D

I would defeat you in battle to earn that loot!
Where do all the baby aliens come from omg? Do they light up in the dark? Do you have a favorite item out of them?

That's literally the dream. My partner says that if I am going to bring all my bric-a-brac I should be the one dusting them ;P which. Fair point, they're a dust magnet. I wonder if a cabinet could work instead?

Is the item in the top right a radio?? I love its design! :O And what about the thing in the centre that looks like a circuit board? My curiosity is piqued :D

It's a MiniDisc player! It runs on one AA battery and goes with me everywhere.

The circuit board thingy in the middle is just that, a circuit board thingy! I soldered it together myself and all it does is light up the leds one after another in a speed set by the user. What it's for? It lights up the leds one after another, I just told you! ;)

You had mentioned the minidisc before, but I had read it as "a mini (small) disc player" rather than "a MiniDisc player". I forgot all about MiniDiscs!! :O I think I only saw one irl, and I for sure didn't think they were a popular medium for music (I looked it up though and was wrong).
Is it still possible to come by music MiniDiscs? Do you burn them yourself for newer music? And is it able to read the disc well while not lying flat as well? I had one of those portable CD readers, but it struggled with being taken on walks, hehe :>

I very much appreciate the circuit board thingy! I can respect an item with a clear yet useless purpose in life :wink:

Oh I see how it could be read as that, haha! Well, now we know what I mean! It's great for when I don't want to bring my phone (or need it for other things than music). I've started listening to synthwave quite a lot in the last years and that scene is packed with artists releasing their stuff on MD actually, but it's always very limited, I always miss out... :D I record onto blank discs instead and then I print lil covers for them and everything. It's very cute! The minidisc technology has this memory... buffer... thing (I forget the Real Name TM) that makes it read ahead on the discs, so if it should get a good bump and lose track of where it was it has half a minute or so of music already prepared to continue playing while it searches for where it left off. This means I can have it in my pocket while walking/biking/shopping without any playback issues. It's muuuch better than a portable CD player in that regard! :)

i used to be scared of bugs too! what helped me with that fear was just learning about them. that dead bug next to the deck of "bee" cards that looks like a bee isnt a bee at all, its a sawfly, no stinger! a sawfly is the ancestor to wasps, bees, and ants. wasps evolved from sawflies, and then bees and ants evolved from wasps.
YES i love card games so much, what do you play? i loved to play village idiot, kings corner, speed and california speed hahaha. i moved recently and now i need to find new people to rope into playing cards.

your items are Very neat!!! i love the ORB, and you made a whole little circuit board thingy that lights up! thats extremely cool. i also love how you print out covers for your little minidiscs! what a fun little gadget! i want to put the dice in my mouth.

oh i absolutely love your items, i would grind for hours trying to collect it all. That fancy box! i love fancy wooden boxes so much. i had two of those once but both were left in moves. i see we both enjoy a little Forest Detritus!
that virtual shelf sounds awesome!!! you should definitely do that, i love things like that

all of the baby aliens are gifts! one set was the kind with the parachutes, and then the rest was just a handful in a little pouch! they do glow, when i lived in a house, i strung them up on the ceiling, sets of 3 or 4 hanging vertically, in random spots on the ceiling. and when i turned off the lights it kinda gave the impression of like those glowworms that live in caves with their glowy muscus hanging down hahaha! it was fun
my favorites are probably the pogs, a gift from a late cousin c:

a fellow minidisc enjoyer!! it's the music format of the future.

i don't really have much in the way of trinkets sadly, but i do have an addiction to Handheld Gadgets. no pda, pocket pc, cell phone, or walkman is safe from my hoard. when slain, there's a chance that i will drop one or more of the following items:

disagreed!! the amount of sentimentality infused into an object greatly increases its value! i love the small old-style pikachu & like, little angel statues juxtaposed with asriel haha. and you should totally make a virtual shelf, that sounds like a stellar idea

oh that sounds incredible. do you have any pictures of it? when I was a little kid I had glow-in-the-dark stars on my ceiling, but this sounds much cooler

anyway here are most of the knickknacks in my apartment right now:

and from when i still lived w/ my parents, here's a picture of my frog collection:

sadly i do not, i didnt have a camera that was able to take pictures in the dark then.
glow in the dark stars are always fun though, and they dont require puncturing the ceiling, so i think i might get some of those actually haha

i love your items! the jar of origami stars!! i would like to purchase a Glorb. i also love your frog collection, my sister loves frogs too. which was your first and what prompted the collection?

oh my god, that joke is amazing

thank you! all of the pictured devices i got recently, within the past 3-4 years or so. a lot of them are things that i really wanted to own back in the 2000s, but couldn't as i wasn't yet old enough to actually have a job and afford them at that point.

sadly, almost all of the cool tech that i actually did own back then is long gone by now - it's either been sold or given away. i'll never forgive past frost for getting rid of my bright pink ipod shuffle. :p

the first out of these was probably the frog sitting on the windowsill, because my parents got that before I was born. no idea when the interest began! me liking frogs feels like some immutable fact that has always been true. like 90% of these are gifts, as a kid it was common knowledge that i liked frogs and because of that i just would always get frog items. this isn't so much an intentional collection, it's moreso a collection that happened to me

the frogs that honestly had the MOST emotional value to me were a bunch of plastic frogs like these (https://www.orientaltrading.com/colorfu ... _1088.fltr) which aren't in the picture, I have (or maybe had) a separate, jug full of small toy frogs somewhere. i remember these super elaborate JRPG-style stories and adventures i'd make up with them

i think i'd drop pens... try to always have a couple on me. some in the jacket always and then one or two in my pant pockets too. ideally a pencil, an ink pen, and a couple of markers.

a new pen is my go-to treat... but they usually dry out rather than get used up. 😓

My loot would probably be considered common drops that players wouldn't be bothered to actually pick up. Maybe random receipts, tissue packets and/or sometimes barely working headphones
