Why do people collect Queen?

Post by BluePowderMonkey »

I don't understand collecting really. I used to collect everything Queen, but then it hit me how ridiculous it actually was! The postman arrived, I duly unpacked the latest rarity in blue vinyl and immediately put it on the shelf with the rest of the collection, never to look at it again.

I was reading the other topic and I actually felt sorry for the people chasing the latest coloured Queen vinyl. I know they don't want my sorrow, but what is it that makes them want these items so badly?

I sold my collection on eBay and I have now have no Queen items in physical form at all! I'm happier after getting over it! :D

This is a strange gloat. Let people do what they want without a superiority complex forming.

Why do people fly 8 hours for a Caribbean holiday, and then sit on junctions of the M25?

I don't really understand that, either.

It takes some people a while to change.

It is no more "ridiculous" than any hobby you care to mention.

I don't understand your point. What has a holiday to do with collecting?

It was quite clearly a statement that people are entitled to spend their disposable income in any way they see fit.

Don't Queen collectors have holidays then?

Luckily, I don't need to.

My point was, that there are some people who will dictate what they say they believe, push the point so it affects everyone else, but in regards their own lives,, and behind the scenes, still have a carbon footprint that makes the people they're trying to influence, look small.

People will do what they want to pass the time. People who have a collecting hobby, don't really try to forcibly influence people, who don't.

Forcibly influence? Carbon footprint?

I will leave it there, it seems to a problem for everyone. :|
