i'm going to make a bit more money shortly and there are about a million things i'm planning to buy in an attempt to fill the crippling emotional void of my abysmal life with materia so here's a thread where we get to list what kind of things we're going to spend our hollow gold on next and why. maybe we can share some BUYIN' TIPS AND TRICKS with each other. * stereo (new amp + speakers + turntable, my cd player and tape deck are still ok) * peavey generation ex (tele style guitar with a humbucker in the neck position; because lord satanas knows i don't have enough guitars already, no but honestly, i want something with a single coil in it) * ebow * pentax da 35/2.8 limited + da 15/4 limited (these are exceptionally nice lenses that i will never be able to afford, oh well) * pentax fa-j 18-35/4-5.6 (this is a cheap crappy lens that i will be able to afford) * a half decent amp (not a priority) * new cymbals (that don't break as easily as my earlier crappy ones) * bunch of cd's (cause i've been missing out on a lot of new music lately) * a mini-itx motherboard (cause i'm putting together a real nerdy emulator pc thing to connect to my tv and play a million boring nes games) * some sort of boring bench thing for my kitchen, furniture is priority -1000 but i still kinda need it because my microwave is still sitting on a cardboard box all i can think of at the moment. unsurprisingly it's almost all music and photo crap, wow because i mean i'm sure i will become a better musician/photographer just by buying new instruments/lenses right? anyway when you have money left over do you usually have a mental list like this of things you ReALLy WaNt or do you just waste it on whatever strikes your fancy first?
