Nice haul everyone.
Yes, MS - Lost Highway
Didn't ask for it, but got it anyway....
freakin sweet !! that's an awesome album !! I'd see them live for the 5th time- but they're not playing Adelaide with their "Lost Highway" tour
Don't let that discourage you....road trip / plane trip...fun, easy and (relatively) cheap.
If I didn't do the brief trip to Melbourne, I wouldn't have my coolest Christmas presents:
- Autographed Root! album by several members of the band and comedian Tony Martin ( http://myspace.com/rootthemusic ).
- Fictional book about the US Civil War autographed by the author (very funny, if anyone's interested, send me a PM and I'll pass on details).
- A very rare book about TISM autographed by the rare members of TISM...I'm sneaky
- A fun gig by the band Root! (all recorded on digital video ).
- Catching up with friends and family.
Fun and brief trips interstate for music are awesome
We looked into this, as I wanted to go badly, but all concerts are sold out and yeah, there are tickets on ebay if you are willing to pay $600 for a pair in the back row!!! $2,000 got you front row in Melbourne for two.....not such a cheap trip then.
Yikes! But then again, the concert tix may well not be cheaper if a concert was held here. But that's pushing into crazy territory - I looked into going to see Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers...both were pushing into the $2-300 per ticket on ebay! Lucky the Chems are coming here early March
We were lucky / nuts - flew to Melbourne for a FREE gig that lasted exactly 60 minutes!
FWIW - the return tix to Melbourne for the two of us were $220 each. Definitely not the cheapest, but a friend recently did it for $160 each (which is pushing into less than petrol cost). And one of the airlines recently had $60 one way! (I love my random interstate trips).
star wars vault book,
and a couple of vouchers which will come in handy in the music stores.
- Shirt with 'Dumbo' on it (few of my friends and I gave each other nicknames, like Gumbo, Jumbo, etc, the person who gave this to me forgot she was actually Dumbo, not me)
- Lavender candle
- few choccies
- Girly accessories - Jewellery, lip gloss, head band thing
- Wizard plush toy Not sure why I got that, guess my friend thought it was cute
- Johnny Depp calendar!! *drools*
- Several Christmas cards
- Money towards a laptop which I hope to get in the next week/or month from my parents
Had money left over from schoolies which I'm allowed to spend, so I'll also include these things in the list:
- Buying a couple of computer games tomorrow
- Shoulder bag thingo, really need one
A great year
- Boba Cape, CABoots and toe spikes
- Galactic heros twin pack X2
- Ep 3 Framed film cell
- Simpsons board game
- Cars the movie walkie talkies
- Bindi Urwin Cd
