If you really loved me, you'd get me:
A Lament Configuration ("Box of Sorrows", of course.)
- A Space Suit of some kind (actual spaceworthiness not required.)
A Nixie Clock.
- A Hypnowheel.
- A Trebuchet or Mangonel.
- A Ball Sucker.
A 360 degree panoramic lens, with Canon 35mm SLR mount.
- A MAME cabinet or Millipede conversion controller.
- A complete set of MAME ROMs, since most of my favorite games don't work in the copy I have now.
A 128K Apple Macintosh ("M0001", not a 512K Fat Mac!)I have one, but the monitor is dead and I can't be bothered to figure out whether it's repairable... Volume Magazine, issues 5 - 17. (This was a jewel-case-sized British magazine from the early 90s that came with a compilation CD. It had a lot of good stuff, but I only ever found the first 4 issues.)Score! Thank you, Santa! I now have the music portion of all issues except 5, 7, and 11. (But, I would still like to read the magazine portions, so if anyone is willing to part with those, I'd still love to have them!) "One Step Ahead of the Spider" by MC 900 Foot Jesus (either CD or MP3s; it's out of print.)Score! Thank you, Santa! Vinyl records: "Playback" by SSQ and "Trans-Atlantic" by Jon St. James.I got an itch to listen to these a while back, only to find that my copies are scratched into oblivion. DVD or Laserdisc of "Home of the Brave" by Laurie Anderson. (It was never released on DVD, and the VHS version was recorded in mono, so it sounds like the LD release is the one to have.)I finally found a torrent of a rip of the LD in 2008. DVD, LD, or VHS of "ZTT: The Value of Entertainment (Time Capsule Version):a 1985 concert film featuring every Zang Tuum Tumb artist except Frankie." (VHS: "1986 UK, ZTT The Video Label/PMV; 041453-2"; LD: "1986 JP, PolyGram MusicVideo; SM058-3082".) An Underwood Standard Typewriter from the 20s or 30s, in good repair.My lovely girlfriendgot me one of these, but it doesn't type very well, and my attempts at repairing it have so far only made it worse. (Goal is to turn it into a USB keyboard.)
