The Official 2005 Christmas List

I know all of you out there in the blogsphere are asking yourselves all the same question: "What do you buy for the Byron who has everything?" This post will make a vague attempt at trying to answer this age old question. Now for the list!

Number 1 Fantasy Wish List Present: An Apple iBook
Being a hip blogging, music loving, twenty something... These have become standard issue...

Extremely Cool Present Most Likely to Actually Get: Hi -Res Pocket Camera
I have a huge bad ass but very bulky digital SLR, I need a super small, but powerful camera to carry on me all the time. Here are some examples I really like...
Nikon Cool Pix 5.1, Canon PowerShot 5.0-Megapixel Digital ELPH, Sony Cyber-shot 5.1-Megapixel

Very Cool Collecter's Editions That I Would Love Under the Tree:
Johnny Cash - Legend Limited Edition Box Set
Office Space Special Edition with Flair
The Big Lebowski - Achiever's Edition

Subscriptions to Things I Read.. The Gift That Gives All Year Long:
Paste Magazine
No Depression
Under the Radar
Magnet Magazine
Resonance Magazine

Music Meets Art - Posters and LPs :
In preparation for getting my own place (relatively) soon I have thought about how to decorate it. Limited edition framed concert posters would be a great edition. Ones signed by the Band or Artist would be especially cool. A good place to find them is here. Bands to look for include: Pavement, Built to Spill, The Pixies, Death Cab for Cutie, The Replacements, and others... Check with your local Byron for more ideas.

Games I Would Enjoy If I Owned...
Civilization IV
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
The Hustle: Detroit Streets

Gift Certificates: The Last Minute Gift:
Borders, Best Buy, Movie Tickets and Restaurants always work.

Clothing the other Gift:
Right now, except for vintage band T-shirts I own too many clothes. I do not need work clothes, socks, boxers, or the like... However you'll be able to find the aforementioned Band T-Shirts here.

That should do it for now. Any more ideas may be posted later... Your local Byron thanks you in advance!
