All I Want for Christmas...

...Would be a world without war.

Okay, but seriously, this stuff wouldn't hurt either: View my Amazon Wishlist.

Let's face it. I am a consumer whore - please join me in celebrating the anniversary of birth of Santa Claus or whatever by sharing your own wish lists.

actually what I would
really like for christmas
is for Lucasarts to come out
and announce, definite plans
and a viable aproximate date
of when a GF2 was being made
and sold commercially.
further I would like for Lucasarts
in anticipation of this new game GF2,
re-release GF with the original OST.
*and sell GF2 with an OST also.*

after christmas I am planning
to get the Lucasarts best of CD,
and sometime in the new year
I am looking forward to getting
my copy of TDLM from the Lemur.

my christmas wish list
is non existant. it is not because
I am a Grinch or Scrooge but because
many important bills are due in the
first days of january,
and financial\credit cards;
are already maxed out now.
so a nice but basic turkey dinner
with stuffing and cranberries
and watching Dr Suess's
How The Grinch stole Christmas,
and Jim Carey's version
and the B&W classic's
It's A Wonderful Life
and ALister Simms Christmas Carrol
and Bill Murray's Scrooged
will be the extent of my holiday.
*and making gingerbread men which is fun*

so even though
christmas is commercial
remember what the Grich says:
'maybe christmas does not come
from a store, maybe, just maybe
it's a little bit more."

so all you Who's
far and wide with your X-Box's live,
dont' have a cow if you get socks
from aunt clive. we all want everything,
but we all only need one thing
to have a safe and happy holiday season.

Thanks met, I totally forgot about those things I needed to get. I've a got a super long list this year. Its all basically dvds to add to my collection so I can get all of them before the next way to watch movies come out.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

Everything is so much cheaper in 'merica.

For Christmas, I would mostly like the following DVDs:
Lord of the Rings (4 disc) version
Red Dwarf Series 1
The Office Series 1

After Christmas I may have enough money for a Gamecube too because I've been saving my pennies.

You have chosen wisely Metallus. Toejam and Earl will be a fantastical game, if it isn't I will burn things. Spiderman was a pretty fun game too, and the 'movie' edition is very simple.

Also, I too must resume my Simpsons box set collecting and grab hold of Season 2 and run from the shop.

Snatch is a fun movie although I didn't like Memento, it was clever but not fun.

I was not aware that 'The Collected Sam & Max: Surfin' the Highway' was actually there. In existance. That would be a fun addition to my small set of Dilbert books.

Corporate Whores get the better deal.

I have purchased both my parents gifts tonight, and they are both CDs, of the musical variety. I bought my father the new Terry Wogan compilation, and my mother will get Barbara Streisands new 'Duets' album. Hopefully, none will ever escape from the case.

It matters where in america your referring to.

stuff costs so much in San Fransisco its not even funny. Well, its kind of funny. My uncle had a one-story house on a hill. It was like thousands a month and like 800,000 face purchase. Our house cost like 372,000 and its pretty big, including the property that goes with it. and a pool. I will never move to california! NEVER!

Ahh Red Dwarf is awesome. Very cool.

Simpsons, they syndicate it enough that I don't have to buy anything.

I didn't like snatch very much. I liked the style, but it was kind of boring and it got tired. Memento on the other hand is one of my favorite movies of all time.

I bought my parents the Season 3 Lexx DVD. Very cool Show. I don't know what I'll get my dad. I got my mom the first drunken master on dvd(she's like obsessed with jackie chan.) and I got my brother Cradle of Fear, all the way imported from the U.K. That looks pretty cool. I'm getting Travis a Dimmu Borgir live dvd.

Then for me i'm not so sure. Loads of dvds and some cds i guess.

I should have guessed
you would like Lexx
bigest piece of euro trash
sci-fi ever inflicted upon
North American auidences.
actually makes and made
Twin Peaks look watchable.
but on a bright side the
"Brum Gee" theme is cool
as is the ship design
the rest is crap.
give me Space 1999
or The Lost Ark
if your going to watch that.
or just stick to the Thunderbirds.

oingo boingo playlist
<songs to date>
santa I want to collect more,
so make them available on winmx
or have kind and cool Boingo fans
email them to my 3web email.
sinister.eggplant@3web.net

ain't this the life
better luck next time
cinderella undercover
cry of the vatos
dead man's party
don't fear the reaper
good for your soul
heard somebody cry
help me
it only makes me laugh
just another day
no one lives forever
no spill blood
only a lad
same man I was before
stay
violent love
we close our eyes
weird science
who do you want to be?
wild sex in the working class

*also an Internet
without pop up adds
would be nice.
never mind no war.
little guns is GW Bush' theme song.*

Okay, low-budgets make for bad sets and bad graphics. But I still respect that show. Its funny and original(its hard to make an original space show) But your right, the Brumen Gee war call is awesome. But to each their own. Funny thing, I still haven't seen any twin peaks so I won't get mad at you 'bout that. I haven't heard of any of those other show except Thunderbirds. What can I say? 'Tis fun to watch puppets!

Yeah Eggplant, skauch is a poster from back before there was a Lucasforums. Everyone from those days has started over with post counts, myself included. I'm hoping someday to import the old YaBB forums into an archive here (since they've just released a YaBB > vBulletin conversion tool), so we can look back on ourselves and be embarassed. I hear that ezboards are also importable to vB, so I might try that out on the ancient GFN forums as well . But I probably would have to have admin access to the EZ forums to do that.

wow more than 2,000 posts
I can't even imagine hitting 1,000
I will eventually
but it still seems a long way off,
well...
instead of giving skauch
his old posts back Metallus,
you could get him that dodge dart
he wants.
