Ade's Christmas Wish List 2009!

Oh lookee! It’s September, and it’s time to break out the Christmas decorations because Christmas is just around the corner! Okay, not really, because, you see, you can’t put Christmas in a corner because it’s a metaphysical thing we call a holiday, and we really can’t shoehorn holidays in corners and– yeah? Well, fuck you too.

Anyway, since I am about to go on a rampage the next time I hear Jose Mari Chan’s “Whenever I see girls and boys selling lanterns on the street” being played around me, I might as well use this early Christmas spirit to help me out of this writer’s block. And people are already putting up their wish lists, I might as well make mine to give you people enough time to save up and buy me these things! Right guys? Guys?

The Complete Remastered Beatles Catalog

I really want this. I’ve been a big Beatles fan for as long as I could remember, and my biggest complaint about their albums is that they sound too tinny. Well no more. On 09/09/09, the complete Beatles catalog will be re-released, remastered! Seriously, I’m excited for this. No longer will I have to contend with vinyl rips just to get the optimal Beatles experience!

Also, I don’t want to download this box set. I want the real, physical albums! Yes, it’ll definitely cost a fortune, but damn, I’m pretty sure it’ll be worth it.


A New Laptop

So I bought me a laptop netbook two years ago as a Christmas present for myself. Fine and good, it was perfect when I first bought it. But now, I realized that I never log on to my desktop computer anymore and I might as well get something that doesn’t crash my browser every other minute, has storage space more than 4 fucking measly gigabytes, and is not slow as molasses.

Yeah. That’s all I ask for. An actual, working laptop that doesn’t crash and lets me surf porn work in peace. It doesn’t even have to be a friggin Mac, for crying out loud. But it won’t hurt if I did get a Mac. *nudge nudge wink wink*

Zoom B2

How the heck do I explain this? I’m a bassist. I use effects. My current effects pad is like over 10 years old and really, it’s been a bitch to play around with even back when it was state-of-the-art.

Anyway. I feel like I am due for a new set of effects, and the Zoom B2 is a perfect replacement. But it’s all bullshit for “that effects processor is pretty OMG I want it so much even though I don’t have any use for it.”


What about you guys? What do you want for Christmas?

  1. Seriously like the look of the Zoom B2. It's been a while since I've picked up bass (many years) but I've been thinking about trying to talk my relatives into getting me a new one for Christmas. May have to suggest they get me a B2 as well (not sure they'll stretch to that though!)…

  5. Maraming beses na ako gumawa ng wishlist kaso di nagka totoo.. 🙁

  6. a schengen visa and lots of moolah! anyone? anyone..? ade? 😛

    since you've been blogging for a long time now, can i ask you something ade? does this wish-list thing work?

    i ask bec. i take these things seriously, you know. i may just do a wishlist post of my own, and i don't want to be disappointed if no one sends me what i wished for…

  7. A plane ticket so that I can write another whopping travel guide.

    No, scratch that, I think I've had enough of those for a while. I want a PlayStation 3 since it's the only current videogame console that I still don't own.

  8. Oh and I almost forgot, I'm saving up to get the Beatles Remastered Catalog.

    It would be like seeing the Eraserheads back together again. 😀

  9. I wish for a new dSLR, a lighter and smaller laptop and of course, the obligatory wish for world peace.
