Just don't go to Arizona.
Anyway, as for a collection that got me into it, I have to give props to JoeY and his bootleg collection. That is one hellva collection that I would love to have close to one day. I'm amazed everytime I look at his limelight. Another display would have to be Jedidallas' attic. For those who haven't seen it.
As for mentor, everyone who I made friends with here, SWFUK, or on RS since I started back in '07.
