Zelda on the front page!
I did an
interview for a Brazilian site called "Nintendo Lovers" after I
got the record. Obviously it got translated afterwards, as I

Records Book 2018 (Norwegian)
In the main
GWR book, my name and title were listed somewhere in the "Collector
Records" section, and that's it (because everything game-related
was put in the Gamer's Edition). But, in the Norwegian version
of the main book, they put a big picture of the Zelda collection
next to other newly achieved Norwegian records in the
introduction ("letter from the Editor"). I didn't even
know that until someone told me.
Fun fact; I
was at the bonfire "Slinningsbålet" in Ålesund when they got the

what happened to the old one.
Universe started a similar "Collector's Corner" on their site a few
months after Zelda Dungeon. I was contacted by Shona Heath,
asking me to be part of their first showcase after I'd sent them
some Zelda pictures through their Facebook page.
more of an interview than a showcase though.
pictures ended up in Zelda Dungeon's "Collection Spotlight" section
after I'd sent them some photos. And then something weird
happened in the comment section.. It kept growing, and just
seemed to never stop. Many, many comments later, the "CS10K"
group was formed (Collection Spotlight 10000).
I was never
a part of the comments and discussions, I just read a bit of it
in the beginning. It's kinda cool knowing my Zelda pictures made
Zelda fans come together like that though. Seems like they had a
lot of fun too, hehe..
read their story on their website.
This was the
first interview I did with a site, and it was part of their
new section called "Ukens samler" (weekly collector).
into-text says "Take a look at one of the world's largest Zelda
collections!" My record wasn't confirmed at the time but I was
definitely working on it.
