My birthday is May 29th. Long time readers (go outside; get some sun) will remember that I love my birthday. I sometimes post the wish-list on the blog for all to see. I don’t recall if I did that last year or not…but I’m going to now. Sorry, those of you who don’t care what I want. If you’re interested in buying me a gift, you might want to contact my dad to coordinate what you’ve got in mind, to make sure the list hasn’t been all taken care of already. 🙂
Anyway…here’s the list for this year. I promise I won’t buy the following things. However, I reserve the right to add more, should I see fit. Because, y’know…greed.
- Sharon Van Etten – Tramp
- Shooter Jennings – Family Man
- Iron Maiden – En Vivo (CD and/or DVD)
- Pink Floyd – The Wall, remaster from last year
- Queen – Have the first five of the remasters…need the next five. 🙂 Think they’re available in a handy-dandy five-pack, but if that’s ridiculously high priced, the records are:
- News of the World, Jazz, The Game, Flash Gordon, Hot Space
Comic Book/Graphic Novel — Sandman Volume Four (of this edition) and following. (Helpful hint – They’re MUCH cheaper online than they are in stores.)
- The Muppets
- Ricky Gervais Show – Season 2
- Iron Man 1 & 2
- Red State — Kevin Smith’s most recent movie. I think it’s only available online at the moment.
- Futurama Vol. 6 (aka Season 6)
- Deadliest Catch – Presently only have seasons 1 and 6.
- The BBC Series Torchwood recently finished another season called “Torchwood: Miracle Day” (aka Season 4). Unsure if it’s out yet, but that’d be cool.
Clothes – All t-shirts in XL, unless you see that it’s made by American Apparel, in which case I’ll need a XXL, because they make those dumbass tight shirts that are in fashion for some reason. Even then, I can kinda do the fat-guy stretch and make them work, but I’d prefer not to. It makes me sad.
- Flash t-shirt – Classic lightning-bolt logo.
- Time Bandit t-shirt – Prefer standard ship logo, but use your judgement. (Presumably talking to Dad here, since he’s the one who watches the show). – Think they’re only available online, but they might also sell them if there’s still a Discovery Store in town or at Bass Pro Shop, who sometimes sells crap like this.
- RAMONES t-shirt – Classic logo. Had one a while ago, but it’s a Large, and doesn’t fit anymore. On account of I got fat.
Ink for the old fountain pen. Presumably only findable online. (I bought the ink I have through Amazon.com. Linking to people I believe to be reliable sellers that I would buy from.):
- I’m in need of a new turntable, because the one I have is a piece of junk that I think has scratched more records than it has played. If you can find a cheap one that looks reliable, that’d be great…preferrably with that cool USB connection thing… Not really expecting this, though… I know they’re usually not cheap.
- Could use a case/bag for my laptop. It’s a 15.6″ screen.
Gift Certificates, because I know I’m hard to buy for:
- Fantasy Shop
- Guitar Center
- Vintage Vinyl
- Lukas Liquor
- Barnes & Noble
- I’ll take Kohl’s, but they’ve largely gotten too expensive for me.
…and that’s it. Thanks in advance.
