I was thinking about doing a Guide of Gift Guides, because there are a lot of them out there:
Esquire (slideshow), GQ (slideshow), Men’s Health Tech (slideshow… grrrr), Put This On, Uncrate”s The Outdoorsman Guide, Pop Deluxe, Cool Material, Cool Hunting and Daily Candy (with another god damn slideshow!)
I decided to forego reviewing all of those guides and make a list of things I want. Not even for Christmas. Just things I want. Aside from world peace, food for the hungry, better health, more frank public discussions about family planning (particularly from religious quarters), shorter Presidential election cycles in the US, the GOP to stop being clowns and Democrats to more steadily stand up for the middle class. So those are a given. If you are disgusted by rampant consumerism, read no further and thanks for stopping by. Before you leave, would you consider donating to a charity of your choice this season? Have some good charities that need help? Post them in the comments. Here we go…
I’ve wanted to be a better guitar player since the beginning of time. I’ve read and heard good things about Rocksmith. Plus, this is on my life list. I actually said this in front of other people at Mighty Camp back in November. So 2012? GUITAR TIME. If I don’t get this for Christmas, I’ll be ordering it on December 26, 2011. That’s how I’m rolling on this one.
This was the movie I wanted to make when I was in high school and thought about making movies. I love Bill Murray in this. Love. There’s a great moment in the barbershop when Max decides to make amends that slays me. It’s all in Murray’s eyes. So good.
What’s on your list? What did I miss? Do you care?
