Most Prized Possession


TRIBE Member
I have a certain obsession about my prized possession. I've had numerous nightmares about something happening to it, and through a Marshall, makes the most amazing sound.

1973 Gibson Les Paul Custom, sunburst.

I wonder if I'm the only person that feels these sort of emotions for a personal possession?

A picture of my mom holding me when I was just born, framed in a nice wood cube. The pic sits behind a 1 inch thick piece glass on a 45 degreee angle, and writing engraved on the back.

London eh?

I'll be heading to Old City Hall tonite, dunno who you are, but are you heading out?

that's a pretty sweet guitar dude.

without thinking about it too extensively I'd have to say my custom headphone amp and Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones. The amount of enjoyment these two things in unison have permitted is ongoing and prolific.

These things can be replaced though, I think I'd be most devastated if I lost all my music

Funny. I though of my Les Paul right away when I saw the title of this thread.

But in reality it's probably my great grandfathers watch. Which was then my grandfathers, my fathers, and finally ended up in my posession. I can always get another Les Paul.

Right on, look for a guy in a Yellow sweater with a big '8' on the front, or a yellow Quicksilver T shirt ;)

Probably my records. Not that they are extremely rare or anything, but it'd be a pain in the ass to try and replace.

I'd say my laptop, but that was only my most valued possession when I was in school and was storing my work on it...

Sure... in fact, I have a Cash for Life sitting right here-- I won $4, which is about equivalent to winning a pop can tab each day for the next 40 years.

my most prized possession was my bike. it was a Schwinn Mesa GX...such a perfect bike for my needs. i have never loved an object like i loved this fucking bike. sometimes i would just look at it, just for fun cuz i thought it was so beautiful.
then some asshole shithead motherfucker stole it.

so now i don't have a prized possession.

although, my grandparents gave me a necklace and a ring for my batmitzvah which i opened at my grandfather's bedside while he was in the hospital which have unbelievable sentimental value to me.
he never left that hospital and that was one of the last times i saw him. he was so proud of me for having reached my bat mitzvah too.

i have a star necklace that my ex gave me that felt like a little piece of me. but it broke. and i cried a lot. but what can ya do.

i suppose that all of my photos are very very precious to me. old notes and stuff like that are important to me as well. bits of my past. the kind of things that take you right back to a specific season....day...moment......

i like that kinda stuff cuz i don't really trust my brain anymore. it's gettin holes in it.

My parents wedding rings that my mum gave me on my 25th birthday just before she re-married. My dad died almost 5 years ago and I wear them on a chain around my neck, dad's on the left, mum's on the right.

Did your dad happen to hide that watch in his ass when he got captured in Vietnam?

My daddy was an army man.
The first 6 months of my life he was in the middle east on excercise.
when he came back he brought along with him a blanket (with pluto the dog ) on it, and a little stuffed lamb which he picked up for me in Isreal. I still have them.

Also I have the first teddy bear I was ever given. It was bought my nanny the day I was born. His name is Kerby. I still sleep with him every night. As a matter fo a fact I have very restless nights when I don't.

my memory.

it'll be sad the day it goes.



mmm....i don't think i have anything. i'd miss a couple things if they got taken away from me.

like my computer, my mp3 player, my digicam. actually i'd get angry. haha. :D
i'd like to think i'm not attached to anything.

It started back in 1963
His momma wouldn't buy him that new red harmony
He settled for a sunburst with a crack
But he's still trying to break his momma's back

Oh it breaks my heart to see those stars

mine is definately my records.
I had the misfortune of having a couple crates stolen once, and it hurt alot. I couldnt even imagine how I'd react if it happened again.

I love my Nikon F70.
I've had it for 8years. It's the first really expensive thing I bought myself.
It's my treasure.... and it let's me capture every second of the precious beauty of life.
