I collect old video game consoles. I currently have an NES, SNES, Atari 2600, PS1, PS2, Game Cube, N64, Game Gear, Game Boy, and a Coleco-Vision. All of which I found at my local thrift store. I also have roughly 100 or so games for each. I also make chainmaille, play D&D, collect board games, and restore old(1950s era) television cabinets into liquor cabinets. This is far too many eccentric hobbies for society to tolerate, but I'm going to continue giving society the middle finger in the only way I know how...by continuing to do what I enjoy.

Originally, the Loner series was going jump off of this introductory manifesto into a 20 page story relating to one of the many situations that inspired The Loner's Manifesto in the first place. However, this entire thing has dredged up memories and emotional scars that I was entirely unprepared to deal with right now. So I'm going to put up the last 2 pages of the introduction Wednesday and Friday, and put together the story some time in the future...when I'm doing better emotionally.

Just thinking about all of the things that have lead me to these conclusions is incredibly draining, I can't imagine actually writing down those stories at this point in time.

So basically, what I'm trying to say is that there will be 2 more pages added to the Loner's Manifesto this week, and then we will be returning to our normal schedule with Sketchbook Saturday and whatnot.

I never knew I was a loner, but all of this perfectly describes me...

Wow, didn't really expect to find something like this here. My life is a bell, and this rings true.

This is a very interesting meditation which I came across via a banner on "Silence in the Darkness". I'm guessing from this page that you're not in the UK, as eccentricity and eccentric hobbies tend to be quite highly valued here. If you lived here, with that mix of hobbies, Channel 4 would probably make a slightly arch documentary about you. A guy (Fred Dibnah) who demolished buildings for a living and whose hobby was restoring antique steam engines became a major media star after his hobby was deemed interesting enough to warrant a documentary.
