I do go through periods of obsession with certain records.
Comics have a problem, and that is continuity - the obsession with placing the characters in an existing world, where every event is marked in canon.

Love is an obsession. It has that quality to it. But there are healthy obsessions, and mine is one of them.
Like everyone else, I have my quirks. For one, I have to own only black cars and the registration has to have eights. It's not something I can explain, it's just there. Another obsession I have is smell. I have to smell good all the time.
I've had a lifelong obsession with urban legends and American folklore.
Acting requires a lot of discipline to go with the obsession. It's a path of knowledge, and of self-knowledge. Sometimes you get lost on the path. And then you find yourself again.

This obsession with leadership... It's not neutral; it's American, this idea of the heroic leader who comes in on a white horse to save the day. I think it's killing American companies.

It creeps up on you and becomes an obsession. It comes out of watching a million movies.
I usually just go on Google and spend my hours just Googling Jennifer Beals. I think it's possible that I have a slightly unordinary obsession with her. YouTube videos. Interviews with her. Pictures I put on my desktop and my phone.
