I still have all my cards stuck in some big box, but the rare ones were in folders. I don't know if they're worth anything now, though. But I'm definitely going to keep my first Vaporeon holo!

Haha, only one kid at my school had a holo Charizard from the original set. He accidentally put it through the washing machine.
Marowak was adorable! Though I think I adored Charmander a bit too much!

I didn't like Flareon much either. Jolteon was really cool! I can't remember what my first holo was. Probably something retarded as hell. When I finally quit, I had stacks of holos.

Yeah, I have all of those, all of my DBZ cards and some Magic the Gathering cards somewhere or another too.

THAT HAPPENED TO SOMEONE I KNEW ONCE TOO. I had that particular copy at one time, before it had happened. And I traded it off for a Holo Fossil Dragonite and it got put through the wash! It somehow made it's way back to me and I think I still have it somewhere. It's not a 1st edition one like my favourite one but it was the first one I had.

My dad's the one who got me into U2. My parents were the types to play music entirely too loud, so no matter where you were in the house (or even in the backyard!), you heard it. He tended to turn U2's stuff up loud when it'd come on the radio and that was how I got into them. I could go into how I tried to hug the telly when I was 4 but I think I'll leave that particular bit of that story out.
Oh dear! Well, at least you were at an age to treat yourself then, I imagine. The first time I got drunk, I was two. Accident, of course...

My mum and dad mainly listened to stuff from the 70s, and when they were raising us kids they sort of ignored music from the 80s. So I wasn't exposed to U2 that much, but once I got into them when I was about 12, I could recognise a lot of their songs, as you'd imagine. Dad listened to a lot of Bowie when I was growing up, so a lot of that is significant to me.

The first card I ever saw in a pack was Jungle Cubone, and I fell in love with it.

Yes, I only quit in like early 2003, to be honest. That's sort of embarrassing. I was right into the Pokemans. But it was the only series, I collected - I loved DBZ comics and the show, but the cards never attracted me that much.

Oh, that's kind of sad, but amusing it happened to someone else. I remember my mate's little brother tore up his Vaporeon card and we got really sad about it.

I was 19 going on 20. It's only been a little over a year. Still not sure how my tolerance is rather high.

My parents don't even like the same music that they used to. My dad turned into a country freak and my mum listens to the same crap that my brother does.
I feel like I'm the only one with decent music taste in the family.

Am I the only person who didn't care for Dragonball Zed? Also, I remember Digimon. That was shithouse.

The only thing I liked for Dragonball Z was a spoof website a friend showed me.

You could do a running diary of ASIH. No pressure, though.

The first card I ever had was a bellsprout or whatever it's called. Go figure. I hate that Pokemon.

I quit around then too. I stopped being so heavy into it around 2001 though, because that was when I got into DBZ really heavy and started collecting the cards (just for Vegeta but I accumulated an impressive collection over time.) and I still have those, too. I had YuGiOh cards at one point around that particular time, too. I still have the deck that I used when I was 14 but I stopped messing with them a long time ago though.

Aww! The things kids do.

Nah, I knew a lot of people that didn't like it. I didn't like it at first, either - but it caught me in. I actually got into it again a couple of years ago, finishing off the manga collection. Yeah, that's a little sad. But the story is actually pretty neat, really! And Akira Toriyama's artwork isn't all typical anime either, it was more Western inspired.

Digimon, oh I hated that at first, but... yes, I dug that for a while, too. Not for long, though. But there were a few Digimon that I still think had pretty cool character designs.

It has significant memories for me because of my grandma. See, most of the stuff I drew was from DBZ, so no matter how much I outgrew it, it'll be that kind of thing that I can look back on and have fond memories of.

And yes, I remember Digimon too. I was into that for a while as well.
