I admit - I love my gallery more than my cels!

This is a bit of a tongue in cheek (aka not really serious post)... but there is a small bit of truth in this...

I love my rubberslug gallery more than my cels. I enjoy playing with the order that I display the cels in, I like adding the descriptions, I enjoy seeing my gallery hit the front page when I post a new cel... and I like getting feedback on my cels and gallery. I enjoy looking at my cels on-line so much... I check them on-line frequently when I want a pick me up.

In fact I look at them more on-line than I do the actual cels that I own. Bizarre isn't it? You'd think I'd rather pull out my cel folders and admire the beautiful acetate glory up close and personal. I do that also, frequently too, but I certainly check my rubberslug gallery more often.

I do of course love my cels more than the digital images of the cels... but there are times that I get a bigger kick out of paging through my gallery on-line than I do out of flipping through my cels.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Yes, in a way I am the same. It''s a lot easier to look at the scans online than it is to pull them out . It''s also better for us to look at scans than it is to actually handle them or expose them to light.

Oh yes, this is me to a tee ^-^ Most of the hits for my gallery are just me admiring my collection. I agree with sletia, it''s better for the cels this way too.

BTW, I like looking at your gallery too.

Haha, I was going to say that bit about it being better for the cels because they''re not being exposed to the light, but I got beaten to it! I like to look at my own gallery. Probably more than anyone *else* likes to look at my gallery, haha! Plus looking at ones own gallery carries the additional benefit that you can play with your colour scheme and whatnot while you''re there! (Which I can never resist doing, myself!)And I LOVE showing off my cels as if they were my own, fifty or so, beautiful children and I want everyone else to think they are beautiful too! ^_^
And your gallery IS cool. Just the very mention of "Thundercats" sure does take me back to the 80''s. (Er, am I showing my age now?)
