As Christmas rapidly approaches, an even more important holiday lurks not too far behind. My birthday! Yes, that's correct with the New Year, my lovely parents ushered in a new baby. Did you know Amadeus and I share the same birthday (January 27th)? Anyway, my point is that I thought I’d make a little wish list in case you felt so inclined to get me a gift for my birthday or for Jesus’ birthday. Here goes:
The Clash - Sound System
I probably already have most of these recordings, but this set is too cool to pass up. I still remember how stoked I was when I bought The Clash on Broadway boxed set at Tower Records on The Drag. Now that collection pales in comparison to this beauty.
Black Milk Clothing
This online store has the best leggings of all time. They also have some pretty awesome swimsuits. They change the inventory a lot, but the Jaws swimsuit is amazing. Although, I’m not quit sure I’d ever wear a white swimsuit, the concept is great. Seriously, peruse their website. There’s something for everyone.
I’m not totally sold on this thing yet, but I’m willing to try it out. I’ve always had sensitive skin and no luck with fancy cleaners/creams. This sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I also have a hard time finding skincare products that are good quality and cruelty free. I keep coming back to this brush as my next option.
Cheese of the Month Club
I was joking the other day how I wished someone would buy me a membership to the cheese of the month club. The more I thought about it, the more into it I am. I love cheese so much! I’m talking about a fou de fa fah cheese club, not some Wisconsin cheddar bullshit from Hickory Farms.
Macaron of the Month Club
In keeping with the food theme, I also love French macarons. Good macarons are hard to find. A macaron of the month club is a perfect idea.
Dyson DC41 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner
I have two dogs, one is a pug, and they shed like crazy. The vacuum cleaner I have right now is just not equipped to handle that amount of fur. I need some heavy duty shit and after extensive research I think Dyson is the way to go. You know you’re old when you ask for home appliances.
60” Flatscreen TV
As they say, go big or go home. My 45” TV looks itty bitty in my much larger living room. It was fine for our tiny loft, but now I think we need an upgrade. On average, I watch about five films a week so I feel like I should have a larger TV to do so.
French Fry Holder
This sounds totally ridiculous and unnecessary, but if you knew how much I love French fries, you would understand. I know French fries are bad for you, blah, blah, blah, but I love them so much. About 80% of the time I am eating them in the car. This would be perfect for me!
This is a doozie I realize. Three shows in September and not one anywhere near me. I was prepared to fly somewhere, but the timing just wasn’t right. And with having just adopted a new little one, it just didn’t seem feasible. I watched all the footage of the performances and could not believe how amazing they sounded. It’s like The Mats never missed a beat from their glory days. From what I understand, they had special lighting, laminates, and merch for three shows? That sounds to me like a full on tour is in the works. If anyone can make this happen, I pray to the whiskey gods that they do. I really really need this.
There you have it folks, my Christmas/Birthday list. Of course this is all in good fun. I really only wish for a safe & happy year with great friends & family. Except for that Mats reunion, I’m dead serious about that shit. Someone make it happen!
Merry Christmas to all of you out there!
