Okay, these aren't exactly new, but most people probably won't have seen them.

So, three wallpapers sized 1920x1080, and also scaled down versions of 1000px width.







>And now for some memorabilia...

I didn't collect much while the show was on that I can recall other than a few magazine clippings, a couple of Mulder and Scully action figures and FTF on VHS. However, I used to make photocopies of articles in the school library.

Also, from that era...It was pre-internet for me, and I used to spend a lot of time drawing crappy little comics...like this one where a poorly drawn Mulder and Scully make an appearance:

Yeahhh, I'm not proud.

Most of the stuff I've collected has been in the last few years. I mean, if you're gonna be a hoarder, then it should be for a good cause like The X-Files, right?

Up first, my "X-Files License Plates"...

For example, DS for Dana Scully and it is a Maine Vacationland plate as a reference to "Chinga". My favorite is the Oregon plate with DGT for Doggett.

Next, my Scully soccer jersey...

...which references "Improbable". Black and red for the checkers/hair color and 9 for Scully's numerology number. (And, no, I don't play soccer. lol)

Some signed 12 x 18 art prints by artist Joe Corroney. These were alternate covers for the Season 10 comics.

Speaking of comics...

I actually just cancelled my print subscription yesterday, but I plan to keep up with the digital comics. For the most part, I've enjoyed the Season 10 comics enough to keep buying them. However, I think it would work better if they did one series that was strictly mytharc, and one that had the Monster of the Month issues. The Conspiracy series was just a money grab, although I did find the crossover issues with The Ghostbusters and TMNT cute. The Season 10 Annual #1 was dreadful in my opinion.

Comic and script signed by Joe Harris. The script was very interesting to read as it includes notes by Mr. Harris and instructions to the artist.

Lastly, books and magazines, mostly bought on ebay...

And I have read none of these, aside from Ground Zero back when it came out and the kids' book version of Darkness Falls. I also have several XF books on my Kindle, which I've also not read.

Yeah, so, anyway...hope this was at least somewhat interesting and not annoying.

Totally loving it, especially the memorabilia! The license plates and jersey are really cool. :) Seeing all of those XF magazine covers again just makes me so happy. I really love your art prints and all of the Season 10 cover variants.

So many memories! I know I had some of these mags, and I do still have some of the episode guide books. I never could figure out if they put those out for all the seasons? I remember looking for certain ones and not finding them, but it may have been because they didn't exist. Kinda like searching for aliens, I guess!

Chloe's the best! (And I love yours too. I loved Monica from the moment I first saw her onscreen.)

I'll have to check my shelf and see if I at least have all the ones that they did put out. Thanks for the reminder!

Your memorabilia collection is exceptional but why do you collect the books and magazine if you don't read them? Maybe that's a dumb question.

Very cool. I have a full (I think) files of X-Files calendars. And an X-Files watch! It rather symbolically needs a battery.

I should probably give the calendars to someone. I think I know who. But they're just so pretty to look at. Like this.
