What did you get for Christmas? I won't be opening gifts for 12 hours but I already received my gift from my girlfriend and I bought CDs off of amazon as a gift to me.

My girlfriend got me a box of Pot of Gold chocolates (they aren't like what they used to be), a Tim Hortons gift card, and a CD, and I purchased a few CDs off of Amazon.

This is our family's puppy, Heidi. We got her in October, but she is our family's Christmas present to ourselves!

They most certainly would! The Grainger album is really good, I bought a copy a week ago, and my girlfriend bought me a copy as well, so that was weird. I really didn't expect her to find it, in my small *** hometown. Grainger was manning his booth as well, so I sold my original copy to a friend of mine. Definitely great music!

I had to buy the We Are Wolves disk because I saw them in Quebec in the summer and they rocked live, plus their new single "Coconut Night" is killer!

I went straight to iTunes to buy it right after I saw your post, but for some reason it doesn't come up in a search- even though We Are Wolves does. I guess I'll buy it from Amazon- too bad, I have a bunch of iTunes credit I could have used.....

EDIT: I went ahead and bought the MP3 download of Total Magique for $7.99 on Amazon. Shweet.

Joel Plaskett's new album is coming out in the new year- I'm stoked for that. A triple album, called Three. 27 songs, 9 per disc.

When things are on sale I will probably buy myself a new watch as a christmas present to myself. If it is cheap enough, I like this Hamilton.

As to what I have received, we shall see later this morning. It's only just now midnight in SoCal. I'm guessing I got a red iPod Nano because I made that a main thing on my list. Other than that, I'm ready to be surprised and will probably enjoy whatever my family got me. They tend to be very good shoppers. :)

Joel Plaskett's new album is coming out in the new year- I'm stoked for that. A triple album, called Three. 27 songs, 9 per disc.

yeah, it doesnt seem to be on iTunes, pretty weird. But it's definitely a great album!

I've heard Plaskett's new album is going to be awesome too, I have a good friend who's good friends with one of the guys Plaskett uses to co-write songs with (who also wrote countless songs for the Trews and Big Sugar) and he says that the upcoming album is going to be AMAZING! Big Sugar's/Grady's Gordie Johnson returns as producer of the album so it's going to be amazing!

I've heard Plaskett is not that great live though, but then again he's one of those artists whos overplayed more than most. Last christmas I finally tried to check out his Fashionable People album, after thinking he was too over rated, that album rocks! But now I don't think he's that over rated, sure Grant and Craig love him a bit too much, but he has some killer songs out there.

I just bought myself another Christmas present, Weakerthans featuring the Constantines tickets for the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg, I'm going over board! I got shivers hearing John K Sampson singing the words "I hate Winnipeg!" in Quebec City but seeing him performing at a venue named after someone he somewhat criticizes in the same song, it's going to be a bit haunting!

I'm planning to get this hoodie (er jacket) at the same show:

Well, seeing as how I slept in the foyer upstairs last night, right when I woke up, I heard "santa" (my parents) talk about instead of actually getting me something thoughtful (I know I said I wanted shoes like a billion times), they're getting me 100$ to spend on what I want. Listen here mom: I DON'T GIVE WHAT I GET FOR CHRISTMAS..AS LONG AS YOU PUT THOUGHT INTO IT!!!! AND 100$ ISN'T PUTTING THOUGHT INTO IT!!!

Thanks. I needed to get that off my chest. But they still don't know that I'm awake, cuz I just slipped into my bedroom w/o them noticing.

I honestly don't care if they buy me something worth 1$ or something like a Mac. I just want them to put thought into it. All my life, my parents asked me on my b'days/Christmas what I wanted, and then took me along with them to buy me something. I always ended up with it never being wrapped and never actually having a surprise, and also me having it ~3-5 days in advance. Sure it was mostly clothes, but I don't mind it.

Stop being spoiled and whiny. Your parents wanted to make sure you got exactly what you wanted the first time around instead of having you mope around complaining when you got something you didn't. Considering the state of the economy these days, be grateful you're getting gifts at all. There are A LOT of families in much worse places than yours.

Does anyone have GH for the Wii? I can't understand this-- Do I need to use the Wii Remote to move the cursor on the screen to select the game, hit start, then put the Remote into the guitar? It seems like such a hassle if that's what I have to do everytime...

LOL i thought you had to do that too, but actually once you connect the wii remote you just use the black toggle on the guitar itself as it controls the curser. and then you can use the buttons on the guitar as well.
I have GH III, but not world tour but I am assuming it is the same.

I honestly don't care if they buy me something worth 1$ or something like a Mac. I just want them to put thought into it. All my life, my parents asked me on my b'days/Christmas what I wanted, and then took me along with them to buy me something. I always ended up with it never being wrapped and never actually having a surprise, and also me having it ~3-5 days in advance. Sure it was mostly clothes, but I don't mind it.

Awww diddums! My dad used to beat me and my mum up after coming home lashed from the pub but I guess you've had it hard. Sheesh!

Anyway, on a lighter note I got a rather spiffy Vivienne Westwood Swiss Army knife from my wonderful wife, who evidently knows to combine my love of stabbing things with high fashion :)

I received:


Nikon D40 Kit
Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet Aftershave
Armani Code Aftershave
Ted Baker Wallet
£260.00
Lots of socks and underwear (CK, Pierre Cardin, Ralph Lauren etc)
Car de-icer kit (I needed one of these badly!)
A mug for hot chocolate, selection boxes, and Mingles (chocolate mint things!)


I'm thinking of buying a 32" TV with the money. Either a Sony KDL-32V4000 or a Samsung LE32A457. I'm not sure - I download most programmes I like to watch on my MBP and watch them on that, and I'm also afraid a 32" would be too big for use at the desk. It would be good for me watching stuff in my bed, however. The deals on 32" TV's always seem to be better than those on 26" TVs!

iPod Touch I got however long ago was an early gift..

But I asked for some speakers for my laptop, and told my parents not to spend too much because I'd feel guilty.

SWAN M10S BABY. (excuse the mess, my room is too small since I brought about a ton of stuff back from Uni - & the iMac's HD has packed in since I've been away :()
http://i43.tinypic.com/2ezryw7.jpg

BUT, I can't use them because I dont have a voltage converter/plug adapter to convert the US plug&voltage to UK :(:(
But they are beautiful.
And whoever they ordered them off shipped them to the UK from Pasadena in 5 days, and charged $12. Amazing service.


Also, got some guitar strings

And my girlfriend got me this polo:

Hello, it appears that my good friend Benjamin Franklin has escaped from my wallet into your picture. I'd appreciate it if I could have it back.

Probably about twenty. That will increase by five soon as I have five Northwest planes. I have about thirty that are painted in the colors of carriers which no longer operates such aircraft. I only started collecting these things about ten years ago so these numbers will continue to rise as time goes on. Every aircraft type that I have, though, is still in service. It's just that some of the liveries are not in line with the current picture.

oh! sorry about that, I'll send it back asap ;)

Honestly, I was expecting a MUCH smaller Christmas, considering money is pretty tight this year. However, I got really lucky and am quite thankful to have a good family.

Anyway, my mom got me an external Blu-Ray player for my iMac and The Dark Knight. She also got me a Gamecom 777 USB that absolutely phenomenal. The sound is great, and so far nobody has complained about my mic. She also got me a Steelseries SX mousepad, which is supposedly really good, but it's taking me a while to get used to. As an accessory to that, she got me a Razer cord holder, which I needed pretty badly. And finally, I got several games, a wallet, some clothes, and quite a bit of candy. Oh, and Donkey Kong Jenga and Tetris magnets.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3268/3137046873_ba61191813_b.jpg

And then, in addition to that stuff, I pulled in about $200 from grandparents and whatnot... but I'll probably use that to assist me in paying off some of my credit card debt. I also got some clothes, some Xbox apparel, a few movie tickets, and some candy from all of them.

Lastly, my girlfriend got me an EyeTV TV-tuner, and her parents got me season six of 24.

I was very fortunate to receive what I did this year. :) As can be seen from my sig, this was more than enough for my needs and I was very grateful indeed. What I valued the most was the time spent with family and friends. :cool:

Aloha everyone,

My wife was exceedingly nice to me this year, allowing my to pick up two early Christmas presents - a new GlassBook Pro and a 1TB WD My Book Home external HDD. That, and visits from my wife's family (and telephone calls to mine), were really all I wanted. I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Here's to a more prosperous 2009 than 2008!

Your first statement is incorrect; your second statement is correct. :p ;) Philips Lite-on (otherwise known as PLDS) is indeed the company which manufactures the drive in question.

Its really nice and I want to get another one for Dual Monitors.

Trust me, once you use a dual monitor setup for the first time you will never go back to using only one monitor. I have two SAMSUNG SyncMaster 226BW 22" LCD monitors - I would not trade them for anything. It's nice to be able to browse the Web full screen and watch TV on my other monitor at the same time. One of the best decisions I made when I purchased my Mac Pro...
