Greetings Sirs (and Ma'ams)
I come from distant lands of the interwebs in sheer interest of what this site has to offer.  I am indeed one of those rare fans who grew up with the original (1988 release)  of TLBT

Honestly, I never really cared much about the sequels, the original was what stole my heart.

But anyway... who the heck am I?

Oh right, let me explain myself...

I am an artist, a writer, I can act if I wanted or maybe even sing, I've coded games before and hosted many web communities, I currently host two webcomics (not so popular) and I'm an illustrator for a film that's currently in the makes... also, I currently live the sad sad life of a low paid factory worker, which is why I often seek pleasurable escapes (ala forums such as these)

I'm a fan of a huge variety of things, whether it be Disney or Don Bluth classics, MST3K (Mystery Science Theater 3000) a huge variety of videogames mainly in the adventure and exploration genre, several novels (Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling Steven King and many others!) and a variety of webcomics (anybody ever read Ozy and Millie?)

I'm a collector of artifacts from all over the world, including a small collection of ancient Roman and Greek numismatics (coins) dating in and near the BC era.

and uh.. well.. that's all I can sum up right now...

I could tell you everything, but it'd take a book or two XD

anyway.....
Greetings!  :D

Land Before Time, DUUUUURH!!! :lol And, of course, it's also a place for The Land Before Time fans to gather and commune with one another about anything, really. There's something for everybody! :) I wonder if there are other artifact and coin collectors here, though. I haven't noticed any....

Surely there's another collector around here somewhere.. ancient numismatist are kinda rare unless you know where to look (there's thousands of communities for this hobby) But surely, there are people on these forums who collect things, whether it be world coins, stamps, paintings, etc

I'm actually an ametuer coin collector, not a serious one, though. I do have a mild collection, though. Right now, I'm working towards getting all 50 of the US state quarters.

I like the state quarter trade B) nice designs for each state.

I usually try to collect the old American silver coins, barber dimes, civil war coins, etc the trouble with collecting American currency is that most of the dealers can be a bit rude

I've got a chipped silver dime (my brother has a mint condition one), a lot of interesting quarters, and a lot of dollar values coins (Susian B. Anthony?) and half-dollar value coins, plus some foreign coins.

the Susan B Anthony coins a re pretty common still.. you can exchange a dollar for one at the bank. You could also get as many $2 dollar bills as you want just as long as you have two dollars to spare for one bill

anyway, since you seem interested, i'm working on uploading some pics of my collection

$2 bills are a pretty odd thing. I think once, at McDonald's (of all places), we got shorted $3 of change because we got a $2 bill instead of a $5 bill. :P:

You're collection's pretty big, certainly bigger than mine. I don't have anything "ancient." I think the oldest thing I have dates back to around the 1950s or thereabouts.

Hi and welcome to the Gang of Five! :D  :wow
Sounds like you will definitely bring some great and interesting things to the table here, AvestheForumFox (may I call you Aves?) B)

While I don't have many material collections, I'm always happy to pick up a CD or music score.  The closest thing I have to a "collection" is probably one of:

my digital audio collection (over 25GB and counting) or my Stepmania song collection (3064 songs and counting.  See my signature for details).  Anyway, I look forward to seeing you on the forum! :yes

Indeed, sir,
it tis a pleasure to be here among a good lot of fine individuals.

Music is a good thing to collect, it brings your suroundings to life and takes away the feeling of loneliness (accordingly to what kind you listen to)

I listen to orchestral pieces, mostly sound tracks from major films or videogames. I have a strange taste other than that on what kind of music I seek. I like music that sets a mood.. the original music from the first LBT for example, a hauntingly brilliant piece!

Welcome to the GOF forum.  It looks like you have a quite a large coin collection, and having old coins too on top of that.
