While we're on the topic of what we want for the holidays, I've got some more tangible ideas of what would be fun to see under the tree / lit up fern / celebratory coffee table this year.
Forget all the cords and wires and multiple pieces of equipment, with this thing I could plug and go crazy making iPod-listenable MP3s of those 7"s I can't access while on the road. And need I point out it's currently 20% off!?! They also make one for cassette tapes, but my boyfriend swears we already have the technology to do such a thing, we just don't have it hooked up. Hmph.
The other things on my wishlist are a bit less tangible: an irrefutably electable Democrat presidential candidate, a cheap parking space, and world peace. But most of all, I'd love to have you at the Crocodile on December 20th!
Might I suggest a poster bundle from Seattle Show Posters? I love the show-based artwork, but his general non-music ones are super stellar. That heart in a jar? The hand puppet? I melt! Note that on all orders placed before December 17, SSP will throw in a free mystery print! And, if you order and mention you read TIG, you might just get a special somethin somethin…
What do you want and what are you surprising your loved ones with?
