spending money :-)

I have $1100 spending money, thanks to an amazingly generous tax return. My credit card debt is finally down to $1500 and i have no remaining student loan so i am going to spoil myself, damnit. I've been spending all my extra money on house shit and moving since last year. I'd like to buy something musical, something computerish and something for me.

Musically, i would really love another 303 (considering the Acidlab Bassline), but the Electribe ESX-1 looks good at the prices it's at now - i could sample my 303 and maybe that would be enough. Budget? $600.

My computer needs an upgrade. Actually, it's perfectly fine for doing everything i do regularly on it (i.e. web browsing). I'm considering getting back into the odd bit of Counter Strike, though, and that would involve a faster hard disk and DirectX 9 graphics card so i can run the latest version. Budget? $200.

And i want another tattoo. I've sorta being saying yeah i'll get one for a year and it's never happened. I want a 303 tattoo, but i don't want it to look like a gangster/area code thing. I also don't want a modern-looking psytrance-esque cartoon of a synthesizer. Right now i'm thinking of a kid's drawing of a house, similar to the House That Trax Built CD cover, but incorporating the number 303 above the door or something. I'm not sure how well it'll work on skin, though. I'd get a smiley, but it's too drug-related to go on my arm. Gar. Budget? $200.

Realistically, i'm not sure about another synth. I barely play with my shit right now, much less if i had a new bit of gear. I haven't even plugged anything in since we moved house. I have no motivation, and buying more gear probably won't encourage that.

Fuck, i don't even know if i'd play more computer games if i bought some new components. My life is mostly... watch DVDs, listen to CDs, read comics, drink beer, fuck round on the net, work, sleep. So the tattoo is most important right now.

I think i might start collecting Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis. I should start going to the movies again. Just about missed Pirates of the Carribbean, totally missed Fast And The Furious: TOKYO DRIFT BATTLE!!!! ^_^ But Snakes On A Plane and Clerks 2 will be out this month. And A Scanner Darkly next month. Meh, maybe i'll just get cable. Gettin old yo. I need more techno. Yes.
