I want very few things...but things that only I'll be able to get...mainly :

New electric guitar(probably Gibson Les Paul)
New distortion pedal
New 100watt Marshall amp
New 50watt anmplifier and mic

I know I know I know I know I know, its unrealistic..all together thats 5 or 6 thousand bucks.
I'm already saving up for that stuff what do I really want? Nothing. I'm content, I've got a loving family, I'm making wonderful progress with my music and my new business is started and should start booming soon.

And in the spirit of christmas...I would like to give something ...a link :

Be fore-warned... its a Korn song, so may offend some of you. I still think its freaking hilarious, but thats me...and I'm a 15 year old metal head.

Merry Christmas to all!

Things I would like (I don't really need all of it):

- PC with dual Athlon64's, 2 gigs of RAM, DVD burner, 160GB+ HDD's and widescreen LCD
- Laptop with high specs, but less than above
- Yamaha digital piano
- Sony HDV video camera
- Home theatre system with Pioneer plasma, 7.1 channel Onkyo amp, Pioneer DVD/HDD recorder and some digital TV receivers.

Expensive items hey? Guess I won't get anything that's close.

Something reasonable could be a few PC upgrades (drives/ram) and broadband internet.

Affordable (in theory):
  • A new computer (to be my main one)
  • (or) A new motherboard for my current machine. (It's almost dead...)
  • A simple acou guitar
  • A road bike

I would have said a pc compatible projector but I just found one cheep ass hell on ebay, only 200$. It was broken but I fixed it . So I guess there is nothing I want at moment.
World of Warcraft would also have been nice but I already ordered that.
Soon I will be playing WoW on 150", can't wait
People must hate buying presents for me....
