    Icon15 Collecting Bs - Let's talk about your Tori stash

    What souvenirs do you have? How big is your collection? How many songs do you have?

    My iTunes tells me today I have 4,380 songs. As far as I know, that's every song from every album plus a boatload of other stuff: almost all the b-sides and radio edits, demos, remixes, and a ridiculous amount of live.

    I have physical copies of all the albums but LE, AATS, and MWG. I have physical copies all the Pele singles and most of the Choirgirl and Venus ones. Some of the albums are deluxe instead of regular, but I don't have one of each.

    I never bought tour merchandise and I'm not sure I still even have my ticket stubs. Somewhere I have a WTSF poster, the Beekeeper seeds, and the Original Bootlegs stickers.

    I have most of the piano books and Piece by Piece.

    I don't have Fade to Red or Montreux.

    I've never met Tori, so I don't have anything autographed or any pictures of us.

    So other than a large mp3 library, my collection is pretty small and boring. I want to hear how awesome yours is.

    Nice thread!

    Physical CD
    I have all the studio albums, jewel case versions of LE - SLG, the SW box, and then the digipaks of TOAL, TBK, ADP, AATS, and MWG.
    As for singles, the only new one I have is the ASF CD single but on eBay I got a gorgeous as-new Winter digipak, plus Pretty Good Year two-disc digipak set and jewel case versions of China, Cornflake Girl, Talula, Hey Jupiter, and Spark.
    Also have the Original Bootlegs box and A Piano box set.

    Little Earthquakes, The Complete Videos 1991-1998, Live In New York

    WTSF in jewel case, Fade To Red, Montreux

    Lyrics and Piece By Piece

    YKTR and some of the extras that aren't on single or A Piano. Don't actually have any live stuff saved at all apart from the Original Bootlegs and the stuff that's on official releases. When I need my Tori live fix I'll go to YouTube.

    Tour programs from each tour since OSW and posters from each tour but the last. Also kept all the tickets!

    All studio albums. Venus in regular and digipak forms. Choirgirl, UK and Japanese (bonus track) versions. Special edition of SW, but who doesn't have that?
    All singles, except a few from LE, 1 from Choirgirl (Spark with Have Yeself...), and 1 from UTP and zero promos.
    Piece by Piece.
    The Videos VHS.
    Fade to Red.
    ASF DVD single.
    A bunch of radio promos (performances. Don't sweat it, they are all available online).
    A bunch of video bootlegs.
    "Venus Envy" tour charm.
    A couple of Choirgirl posters.

    My MP3 collection is pretty extensive. I'm guessing somewhere around 6,000 MP3s.

    Forgot to add my vinyls. Most albums and a couple of singles.

    Gosh I have a shitload of stuff haha! I need to make a list sometime!

    Let's just say I spend too much money on it

    Nothing too fancy though, the most special thing I have is a Big Picture 7" double A side. No artwork, just the vinyl. And my vinyls in general, love to collect those

    I think my collection is something like...

    All of the studio records in jewel cases, second pressing of BFP w/ Talula (Tornado Mix), digipak of Tales, TBK, ADP, AATS, and MWG. Vinyls of ADP, BFP, and AATS
    Lots of singles... Winter US, Crucify US/UK, Cornflake Girl US, God US, Caught a Lite Sneeze US, Talula p.1/US, Professional Widow, In the Springtime of His Voodoo (Vinyl), Hey Jupiter EP, Spark, Cruel, Jackie's Strength single and remix EP, Raspberry Swirl, Bliss, 1000 Oceans, Glory of the 80s p.1, Strange Little Girl, A Sorta Fairytale on vinyl, and Don't Make Me Come to Vegas.

    The nice part is I think I bought all of these in stores. Minneapolis has some very nice record shops

    And then there's just some t-shirts/merch I've bought at shows, PbP hardcover, CBT, and some promotional posters.

    I recently sold most of my collection. I think I collected everything that was out there minus the really, really expensive stuff. I had a huge collection, but what remained are the albums, a few singles, vinyl and some dvd's/ videos plus some books/posters/t shirts.

    After 11 years of being a Tori fan, I finally got to see her live for the first time last tour [NY, Red Bank, Philly AND Boston!], hence the AATS merchandise.

    Would a picture with her be considered part of the collection? If so, that would probably be my favorite "item" (aw). I cried. She's a person who has made music that has gotten me through a lot of difficult times in my life, and that has influenced me and changed me a great deal throughout the years. The fact that I was given the opportunity to thank her for it in person was enough to make me cry.

    Why did you sell it all, if you don't mind me asking?

    My collection hasn't really grown in the past few years. I have most of her albums and singles, tour books, t-shirts, some of her vinyls, dvd's/vhs collections, etc.

    I had a big collection. Then it got stolen. So, now all I have is Little Earthquakes VHS, Welcome to Sunny Florida, AATS, and Scarlet's Walk. Most of the tori music that I do have is on my computer, but its nothing compared to what I used to have.

    I just looked on ebay to see if anyone was selling the Canadian HMV Scarlet's Walk with the Scarlet Stories CD. I got it when it came out, they're selling it for 140 or thereabouts. Typical that I lost mine!

    I kind of gave up collecting. I mean, I have the UK Crucify, but it's in the wrong type of case so really it's the European one. I could look for ages trying to get one in the right type of box, but what's the point? I have the songs anyway.
