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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
