In order to live a fulfilling life, you should dare yourself to make decisive decisions based on your own desires, rather than the desires of others. I could have surfed to a networking event that I didn’t really want to attend. The event could have helped me practice flattery to climb the professional ladder or I could have mined for new contacts. I figured I would mutate more value from venerable action figure and comic book store Amazing Heroes, and while I don’t know how that path would have turned out, I don’t regret my choice.
The value of the items shown above aren’t purely materialistic. I can revisit (#1) or finish piecing together (#3) parts of my childhood as a way to better understand who I am and what I want out of life. I can be reminded of key philosophical concepts, like those found in Silver Surfer: Requiem (#4), which can better guide me in positive directions. I can also find new things to experience (#2).
- X-Men Steel Mutants
- Spy Wolverine
- Omega Red
- Daredevil: End of Days
- G.I. Joe Dr. Mindbender (1986)
- No loose joints with good articulation.
- No major paint chipping or wear.
- Good condition.
- Reproduction weapons.
- (Resembled philosopher George Gurdjieff.)
- Marvel Mystery Mini Silver Surfer
- Head bobbles.
Passed: Complete Marvel Select Daredevil doesn’t look much better than the Marvel Legends Daredevil. The Marvel Legends X-Men Juggernaut set at just over retail because I ordered from a slacker company. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles original Turtle Blimp with April O’Neil is a nice item to admire for now. Original Masters of the Universe He-Man and Skeletor were above my price range. Completely skipped over the Transformers section, which only slightly disappointed casual editor Jim. My videogame collection isn’t digitally cataloged so just brief glances.
Bonus haul from neighboring Bel-Kirk Stamps, Coins, and Comics, which returning to the philosophical value of materialism, can generate some new future content (#5) and more importantly can be a tangible way to relate to history (#6). The Japanese-issued currency caught my curiosity and some brief research was certainly more palatable with the currency in hand.
- Street Shark cards
- Three red packs
- Three pink packs
I think the biggest folly of materialism is the gluttony of having too much. Don’t waste what you have and enjoy things while you can.
