my 2013 wishlist

i’ve had this post in mind since the end of january.  i can’t remember what caused the delay, but i’m glad i’m finally getting around to it.  i thought it would be fun to make a wish list for 2013 to see if a) i could save some money and b) stick to a list.  i would like to think that each of these items is attainable over this calendar year, but one depends on a band’s touring schedule which i have absolutely no control over.

wishlist1

a leather jacket: no, i’m not having a midlife crisis (i’m only 32).  i’ve wanted a leather jacket since i was old enough to listen to rock and roll.  i’ve come to the realization that i couldn’t pull off a schott perfecto one star like the ramones wore, so i’ll probably stick to something like the above todd snyder joint.

2006 Coachella Music Festival - Day 1

daft punk in concert:  their new album drops at the end of this month.  have you heard “get lucky” yet?  if not, then you have been living under a rock.  it’s f’ing amazing.  i’m going to guess that they’ll play a few dates in support of the new record, but who knows for sure since they’re since they’re so damn secretive.  if i have to travel to paris to see them, then so be it.  i’m in.

wishlist3

gibson flying v guitar: again, i am not having a midlife crisis.  i love guitars.  they are pieces of art (and they’re great to show off when you have babes over).  the flying v has been on my radar ever since i saw noel gallagher play one in the video for “d’you know what i mean.”  and yeah, i still love oasis in case you were curious.

wishlist4

sam cooke live at the harlem square club on vinyl: this is the single greatest live album ever recorded.  period.  (post on why coming soon.)  if you don’t own it, download it immediately.  no one beats sam cooke – especially on vinyl.

what’s on your wish list for 2013?

    Hey man. Love the blog.

    As far as the leather jacket goes (and I’m not sure what your budget is, but Snyder, eesh….) it looks pretty similar to the jacket from Skyfall and the one Bruce wears in Surrogates. Check this piece out:

    It has a halfbelt in the back, which is a little more biker looking, but I think it looks better than a seam down the spine. Definitely more competitive in price, and you can order them in a bunch of different leathers if you ask.

    Full disclosure: The proprietor is a friend of mine and really busts his butt to give high-quality replica jackets. I’ve been looking at that halfbelt and wanting it for a WHILE. Maybe when he has a sale, or when the cooler weather sets in again…

    Hope it helps!
