Hello, my name is Brian. I live in GA, the weather there sucks and there are many many stupid people here as well. I am an art student at a community college, because you pretty much do the same thing there as at a regular university but it's a lot cheaper. Woo!

I don't have much money to buy new fancy consoles, hence the community college, so instead I have a PS2 and a Gamecube (which was $30 and came with SSBM, yeah!). I also have a PSone and a Dreamcast along with a computer which I use for games time to time, but I mostly just stick with my other two consoles. One of my favorite series is Resident Evil because killing zombies and running around yelling "oh s---" to yourself every 5 minutes is the most fun you can ever have! Refer to first statement in this paragraph about why I'm not playing Left4Dead right now. Also finding games I consider to be "rare" makes me happy. Finding games like Rez, Skies of Arcadia Legends, and Ico at used game stores makes me jump for joy.

Besides all there there isn't really much else to me.

So while cleaning up my bosses office the other day, I worked in HVAC by the way and as you could expect it's been really slow these past few weeks. Really slow. I stumbled upon a collection of 8-Tracks which the fool was going to throw away! I don't understand him and I probably never will, but I was not about to pass up on the chance of collecting something which I will probably never use, that would be silly. So I present to you to you the amazing wonder of the 1960s!

Oh my god, look at that thing. That big brown box was, what I assume, what kids would lug around with them all over the place to show off their good taste in music.

Once opened you can see how much space is still left for more 8-Tracks! The dreams of expanding this collection will surely pursue me for years to come, or maybe once I realize that people don't care about 8-Tracks as much as they used to. But, I must push on!

Searching through the case, most of what I found was crap. Class of '77? What the hell?! But there was a select few which I have picked which seem somewhat interested. These 8-Tracks are "Grand Funk Railroad - We're An American Band," "Steppenwolfe - Greatest Hits," and "Kris Kristofferson - Me & Bobby McGee." But the amazement didn't end there.

Look and be amazed as I present to you "Diana Ross presents The Jackson 5!" Holy smokes, Michael is black and a little boy! With a Fro! This is what I consider to be the best part of the collection.

Also since the 8-Tracks are located right above where I keep my CDs I decided to share the good word with all of you. I present "Wu-Tang Clan Meets The Indie Culture." Yes that is what the Wu-Tang symbol would look like if it was the old Macintosh symbol. And yes that is pretty much the entire reason I bought the CD.

But at long last I can now sit back and look at my collection of 8-Tracks and dream of times past which I will unfortunately never be apart of. Ahhh, Such good paper weights.
