  1. Yes, completely agree. This was a low cost buy with potential for moderate returns with no risk so it was a good buy, especially considering for my area sets have been very popular. Plus kept a contact happy for potential future purchases. ...Also, I lied. I am going to keep up with the journal whenever I even have something mildly of interest to report.

    Oak, I agree with you. I think there is some sort of parental failure here but it would also be a disservice to blame it all on the parents. There are lots of people with crappy parents. Who knows, maybe, in some ways, the "system" has also failed him. There are clearly behavioural and cognitive issues at play here (I mean his FB posts, his posts here, etc.) are clear indicators - To me, they are way beyond your "stereotypical millennial". Many, many people here have provided sound advice, which he ignores or, if he really doesn't like what you are saying, becomes aggressive/combative - I suspect that plays a big part in him counselling and employment woes. Bottom line, I think there is a whole whack of things going on with Gabe. All of which circle back to the need to focus on self-help (possibly medication), developing basic life skills (personal hygiene/self care, work skills and personal finances to start) and not crypto currency and comics. Everyone needs a hobby, but when they are detrimental to your overall personal well-being, you need to re-think your life.

    Things are CRYSTAL clear to me...Don't worry about that. Good luck Gabe.
  4. Well, I likely closed out the year with picking up another but SMALL two long box collection from a guy I have bought stuff off from before. I have said this before, but this has been my slowest buying year since I have started buying/selling. Admittedly, I paid a little bit more than I wanted to but he still has some books he wants to offload but he is just not ready yet but I wanted to keep him happy with our arrangement - He calls me first when he is "ready" to sell something. He is contemplating getting rid of his print collection (assorted but focused on the good/bad girl art). I don't have a lot of knowledge there but hey, anything to bring eyes to the booth and online. Anyway, I have made some nice sets from it already which will be good for shows and I gave away a nice stack of assorted commons from it to a co-worker to give to her grandson. The highlights were a few art books/hardcovers, some variant covers (Marvel, DC and Zenescope) and a nice little BP run with 1st Shuri and Thor God of Thunder with the whole first Knull/Venom thing.

    You're always full of something to say so let me straighten you out. First off, I have made every attempt to pay off that debt, call them to take off that additional charge, try to work with them on it, work on a repayment plan. Where on Earth did I say I didn't know?? Nowhere. Your words: There was something else that would keep happening aside from that. However, it's been so long that they took the card off my bank account so I can't check. You said "something else". What was the "something else"? You said you can't check your card? They may have cut off your card but the debt should still be registering/visible to you. Second, wherein all of what I said did I say I didn't take any of what happened seriously? Maybe you should read things over again because you make quite the claims yourself. I am more than happy to take responsibility for things and mistakes I've made so again go READ that. I wouldn't screw anyone over especially with consignments and we've already been over that from my last journal. There were a few boardies that agreed with your opinion but not all. Your words: The banks as far as I'm concerned can off. I tried my best to pay off that credit card debt, I called, I tried to negotiate and work out terms. They didn't listen and they kept piling on 100 bucks, 75 bucks every few days so I gave up and I'm not paying it off until I AM ready to do so. They did me this disfavor so now it will be their turn to wait and yes I'm aware of what will happen to my credit score. If you are not paying your debts, on assistance, don't care about the banks and are aware of that will do to your credit score and ability to secure any other kind of financing or employment, then NO you are not taking it seriously. Third, you again jump to conclusions. Where did I say this time that I did it this time to be "good at this!" for crying out loud you asked me this not too long ago so go read my reply to that Wall-Crawler. For the amount of time you have been doing this, you should be better at this but you are not. Your road to success does not rest in dealing in crypto currency or comics. I mean you can't even tell me how well you did on your crypto venture until you get your tax return? What? So now let me turn these tables and you and unlike you say what you did is that cool? Not sure what you are getting on about there but, nothing about me is cool. I have a house, a wife, a full time job. Enjoy the outdoors. I sell comics on the side to help fund my own collection. I also set up at local shows. And I enjoy doing those things but not at the expense of everything else. You come here to MY journal saying how much of a waste of time it is, saying how I should be doing things much better, how I never learn, jumping to conclusions and saying and assuming things I haven't said in this new journal. I never forced you to come here and read this nor even participate you did that of your own free will. As for the things I do it's out in the open for people to read and I have nothing to hide. The people of this board can make up their own minds about whether to cosign or buy comics from me. Also, just so you know, things do change and not every whim and reason is written in stone. People have made up their minds. You are right. You have never forced me to come here and I wish you no ill will. Its called a reality check. If you recall in PM and other places, I have offered you real advice in terms of getting a job, some resources, etc. but literally nothing has changed. I came here hoping there would be real progress, I have said before that I hope get a some help, a job and that if you had those things, the rest will eventually fall into place. Sadly, we learn after all this time, literally nothing has changed.

    Always someone else's fault, never your own. You still owe the bank and government money. You now say you have unpaid credit card debt. There was "something else happening"? What else besides purchases and interest accumulation can there be? Did you take the bait and get expensive fraud protection or insurance on your balance? What were they "adding"? Regardless, you are responsible for these things. How can you not know??? Bottom line, if you are interested in "dealing in comics", answer me this...How can you expect anyone to take you seriously? Who would ever consign with you when you a) have no clue what you are doing b) don't know how to manage your own finances and c) have demonstrated that if things go sideways you don't honour your work or financial obligations? I certainly would not take a chance on you and until you get your life straightened out, I won't buy anything from you and I don't think anyone else here should be either as to not fuel your psychosis that you are "good at this" as it is nothing but a distraction from you getting a real job and your life in order.

    I thought you owed the government $$$ last time? Now that it is a "bear market" for the crypto currency, what is your profit/loss margin on that venture?

    Employed? Unemployed? Living situation? Home with parents, or on your own or with room mates? Back to the comic situation, what's the point of GPA for you? Why now? Do you have the funds to be buying graded books to flip?

    Weaving the Web: Building a Complete AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Run

    Repost from main thread: I was able to meet Stan Lee at Toronto Fan Ex several years ago...Ugh...Nearly a decade now (wow), Toronto Fan Ex 2010... I waited in line for hours, then had to be re-booked for a second try due to the overwhelming number of people who wanted a photo op. I toughed it out and got my spot for the second try. Even though I only had time to exchange a few brief words with him, it was worth it. I also got to sit in on a panel where he talked about his life and work...This was back when he was healthy and vibrant, so it was a great experience and one I hope to be able to remember for a very long time. Excelsior Forever! Here are a my Stan Lee CGC SS books (not for sale) - Feel free to share your CGC Stan Lee SS books and/or stories!
