If I Were a Rich Man...

If I was one'a them millionaire types, here are a few items I'd buy for all of my friends, Oprah-style.

80 gig iPod: For some reason, I've always loved the idea of buying 25 iPods and handing them out to everyone I know as presents. Nothing beats cracking the plastic and loading up a new iPod! (I'd block you from being able to put The Red Hot Chili Peppers on it, however.)

Absolute New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke and Season One of Justice League Unlimited on DVD: I think even my pals who aren't into comics would appreciate these fanboy treats.

I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass by Yo La Tengo and The Life Pursuit by Belle & Sebastian: These two great CDs from 2006 redefined these bands for me...each of them explode upon the expectations of their previous offerings and deliver full-on pop masterpieces.

$50 Chipotle Gift Card: Cause who doesn't love a burrito?

Well, that was fun, wasn't it? Sadly, until my ship comes in, none of you mofoes get anything!

The Absolute New Frontier book is pretty incredible. I really enjoy Cooke's art and the footnotes are good for someone like me who isn't too well versed in the minutia of DC comics from the era presented.

Thanks, Rob -- just for the thought. And you even reminded me to give that Belle and Sebastian disc a listen. Merry Christmas!
