in what way do you use your cat?

I still use:

- the same Technics direct drive I picked up at a flea market for $5 from like 15 years ago, Sony A/V receiver I got new in 1993, Bose 301 speakers from the same time.

-Ferragamo captoes I got in high school, still not resoled yet but look nice, I polish them once in awhile

-just sold my BMW a few weeks back but I had that for quite awhile

-still have my first guitar ever, a hand me down Yamaha 000-style I got when I was 12. I later went on to get a real Martin 000 but sold that for drug money, kept my Yamaha though.

-I used to still use my graphite iBook G3 SE, but it finally gave up the ghost just recently, 7 years later. None of my subsequent Powerbooks or MacBooks have lasted half as long.

-wear the same TAG Heuer watch I got in high school to this day, probably 8 years old

-I have this big pink comb that might be 20 years old.

My house is filled with antiques and my room at my parents really hasn't changed much or been fucked with since I was in middle school so I've never really thought this over too much...

I have shirts I still wear from the early 90s. Actually, I have a sweater that I got for my birthday from my mom (last thing I got from her before she passed away) from '86. Of course, I don't wear it much these days, 'cause it just might disintegrate. It's a beater, I used to wear it when I had painting classes.

And I've been using the same messenger bag for over 5 years.

Personal e-mail address for over 10 years. But I've got others now.

This doesn't count, it'd be like saying "bicycle, 25 years, since i was 5"

Now if every board you had was the same brand, that would be impressive.

Guys, i want specifics, give more info on the shit you've been using for far too long. I want to know what kind of busted phone you've had for five years.

I bought this pencil my Senior year of High School in Kyoto, Japan, 3 years ago now.

I've done all my senior finals and every piece of work for my Associates Degree from Johnson and Wales University with it, and it never leaves my side.

Don't fuck with my pencil.

Cell phone? That's impressive. I've changed mine every year cos I changed cell phones every year until they allowed you to carry numbers over to other carriers.

I've had this number for almost four years now.

I think I've gone through at least nine phones since I got my first cell phone.

i've also had the same cell phone service provider (verizon-bell atlantic b4 that) for over 10 years..i think ive had 5 different phones...usually try and change it up every 2 years......

You've had a (any) cell phone for 14 years? I didn't get one until 2003.

(just disposed of 11-year-old gap glow-in-the dark boxers the other day)
Did the glow-in-the-dark still work? That shit always dies too fast.

Cell phone--Nokia 3589i--4 years (this took some time off but came back when I threw my Razr against a wall last year)

3589iqj4.jpg

Fred Perry track jacket--7 years (wearing it today)

Gap shirt--12 years (it used to fit a lot differently)

Chucks--one pair that's still going has 7 years on it

iMac--I still turn it on to access old work. Originally purchased in 1998--Bondi blue, baby.

Some of the plastic cups I have in the cupboard are from college parties in the mid 90s (I was in high school at the time).
