Burfday List

Hello Dad, Dave, Susan, Valerie, and/or any other well-wishers who might want to buy me a birthday present on May 29.  I decided to post my birthday list on my blog in order to better accommodate you.  Please find it below.  I don’t expect to get EVERYTHING, but it’d be cool to walk off with a nice haul, since I’ll be unemployed as of 2 days thereafter.  Thanks!


(Also, I had written a very nice post on Saturday, which disappeared somehow…considering re-writing it…but for now…GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE!!!)  🙂



  • Futurama, Seasons 2-4
  • The Simpsons Seasons 8-whatever they’re up to…
  • Rush – In Rio
  • Rush – Snakes and Arrows Live
  • The Wrestler
  • Milk
  • Curious Case of Benjamin Button


  • …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – “Century of Self”
  • Rush – Retrospective 3
  • Tori Amos – Abnormally Attracted to Sin (comes out May 19, and I really want to hear it)
  • U2 – No Line on the Horizon
  • Wilco – Sky Blue Sky
  • EDIT: The Hold Steady – A Positive Rage


  • Sebastian Barry – “A Long Way”
  • Andrew Sean Greer – “The Story of a Marriage”
  • Randy Pausch – “The Last Lecture”  (Sounds enthralling!)


  • Money would be great, since I’ll need it if I don’t find a job soon.
  • Gift cards to Kohl’s and/or Guitar Center, because I always need guitar strings and pants.


I reserve the right to edit, if I think of more stuff that might be easier to find and/or be cheaper.  Please let me know if you WANT other suggestions, and feel free to go off-list, if you like.  I’ve been very literally not buying ANYTHING except for occasional meals and supplies to print more CD covers, in order to save money for hard-times to come…


Current Watching:

  • Black Books — I really want THAT job.  Just a miserable little book shop where I can just sit and be grumpy with my co-workers and hate everything while wearing the same dingy black suit every day.  Sounds like bliss to me!
