Andrew Novick saves everything...

Andrew Novick is both a horologist and an omniphilist. He has a collection of collections. Is collecting collections louder than just collecting a single type of thing? You should hear his CD of his phone conversations with telephone solicitiors! Is a collector of noise a sonituphilist?

Andrew is also a nemophilist.

Would a collector of cakes be a crustumphilist?

Could a collector of trays be called a patellaphilist?

Would a collector of chaos be called a nusquamphilist? I used to think of myself as a psammologist because I enjoy counting bits of sand.

Lately I’ve also become something of a transportophilist.

wow. Mr. Noivk seems like an interesting guy. i always say i'm an archivist. though a few weeks ago i found a photo of a penis on my street, and i carried it around all day. this fat bartender said i was 'creep & a pervert'. I said i was a rock star. I sent the photo to Mykel Board.
