2010 Christmas Wishlist

No one has asked for it yet, but I keep meaning to update last year's list and post it. This is a list of things I would like to have, but recognize as luxury items and will not likely buy them for myself.

LAST UPDATE: 11/21/2010 12:15 AM (GMT -8)
As for the new stuff:

  • A new battery for my laptop. Sony Vaio model VGN-FE780G A few months ago the battery stopped taking a charge at all, so for the moment I have a light-weight desktop computer.

  • In lieu of a new battery, a new laptop. Perhaps a netbook type: small and light with long-lasting battery power. I've been thinking about one off and on for a year or more, mostly to replace my paper notebook when I'm in a restaurant and writing.

  • Rockband 3 + Keyboard (Wii)

  • LEGO Rockband (Wii) could be fun, but it would likely be little more than more songs for regular Rockband.

  • Same goes for The Beatles Rockband (Wii)

  • There's a LEGO Harry Potter game coming out, from the same people that made the LEGO StarWars, LEGO Indiana Jones and LEGO Batman games. I have yet to be disappointed by a LEGO game from the TT Games studio.

  • While I'm on a LEGO kick, pretty much any LEGO set. In the last few years I've emerged from what many adult LEGO enthusiasts refer to as "the dark ages" and my love of the little plastic bricks is growing again.

  • It occurs to me I do not have any long-sleeved shirts other than dress shirts. A sweatshirt or two might be nice. Probably 2XL

  • Memories of the Future: Volume 1 by Wil Wheaton

  • Also by Wil Wheaton, the audio book versions of "Just a Geek" and "The Happiest Days of Our Lives"

  • My wishlist at ThinkGeek.com

  • Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere BBC Miniseries. I saw this at Mile Hi Con this year and quite enjoyed it. I have the book as well.

  • My wishlist at Amazon.com (I hope that link works)

  • Coraline (Widescreen) Gift Set I absolutely loved this in the theater, and I'm curious to see how the 3D works at home.

  • Stargate: Atlantis DVDs. At the moment I have none, so any would be a good gift.

  • Sony PSP handheld gaming system.

  • Dungeon Maker PSP game

  • Scribblenauts (Nintendo DS game)

  • This American Life Live DVD (Return to the Scene of the Crime) or pretty much anything else from the This American Life store

  • Dungeon-A-Day 1-year membership

  • A new pocketwatch

  • Scott Pilgrim vs The World DVD

  • Scott Pilgrim vs The World Graphic Novel boxed set

  • Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage OR Black Lagoon Complete Boxed Set

  • Ergo Proxy Boxed Set

I have copies of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Ergo Proxy. But both of them are downloaded and not in any pretty boxes. Do you have you heart set on pretty box sets or would .avi's be OK?

I like to support the products I enjoy when I can, so I tend to prefer pretty boxes. That said, I will not turn away from .avi files. ;)

That's how I watch most of my TV anymore, using the "special antenna" and then often buying the DVD set when released.
