    So what do you guys all want for XMas besides some new tennis racquets of course! I basically want a recording studio program for my computer so I can make some better music and make the next coolest indie band!

    Oh and also............

    This Christmas time there's just one thing I want.
    It top's it all, it's better than eggnog.
    It's cold outside, my boots are full of snow.
    I'm just hoping for some mistletoe.

    You can take these presents, underneath my tree,
    You can take this awesome scarf my grandma made for me,
    You can take these boxes, tied up with string,
    'Cause all I want for Christmas is the girl of my dreams.

    If I could choose a present and it was guaranteed to be true, I'd pick the same.

    Nothing this year, I really can't think of anything.

    All I want is for a Chelsea victory in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on the 21'st May 2008.

    Champions of Europe would do for me.

    Good taste, though it would have to be a rather large tree :)

    If I could choose, I would have this:

    http://attach.high-g.net/attachments/91-0341_52fw_jmelampy.jpg

    The old mans been promising it to me for my birthday/christmas since I was 10... that was nearly 2 decades ago...

    Seriously though, its been a dream of mine for 13 years to have this:

    http://www.autolike.com.cn/newspic/060519/252.jpg

    But I'd probably settle for:

    That would probably be my number 1 choice. I wonder how much that would cost to build a tennis court..

    I heard the hardcourt is very expensive, but obviously clay and grass need maintenance, too..that's why everyone goes for the hardcourt...maybe a few hundreds thousand $ would do, I heard.

    most of my list is filled with tennis gear i "need" for the upcoming season (barricade ivs, reel of pro supex big ace, possibly some sticks). the rest is cold weather clothing because i will be moving from San Diego to Chico, CA next year.

    Price... great. Curb weight: 3800lbs... not really to my taste.

    BTW the A-10 is a ground attack plane, not a fighter...

    TokyoPunk wants a CD cover design for his band. I know that for a fact.

    Also, don't make any mistakes when you purchase software for audio. How serious are you about it… if you buy cheap software, you’ll end up regretting once you want to advance. If you’re serious about pro audio, I’d suggest invest in a MAC G5 + Logic Audio or Pro Tools with it... plus expensive monitors, more software and more hardware. We are talking about $10,000 TokyoPunk! I’ve used Pro Tools, and I’d say it’s easier to use than Logic, but both can get very complicated. Plus, you need hard-ware as well and good microphones for recording are a must... plus many other devices, all totaling up to $10,000 at least.

    Never said slow. It's scary fast and even quick (if launched right), I'm more into handling than speed that's all. Personal preference...

    I think i read that it posted a better lap time at a prestigious track than a 911 Turbo.

    What do you prefer?

    What do I want for Christmas? The things I want but know I won't get are:

    - A new diabetic drug which my cat could take in lieu of needle injections every day - a pill even.

    - A water wall and a moving scenery screen (both of which are impossible in my apartment).

    - A gift that only one person in the world could give, yet won't make the effort either out of fear or disinterest, or else is unaware that this is the one thing I want.

    - The beautiful open amethyst standing near the entrance of The Crystal Ark in Granville Island, Vancouver.

    Other than that, I want new bathroom towels, a new kettle (I burnt my last one) and a bottle of Ylang Ylang perfume. My wants are simple.

    Well, at 183 inches long and 75 inches wide and 3832 lbs the GT-R is likely to handle like the M6 (191/73/3909). Both great cars and are really great competition for one another. Neither is my optimal ride.

    My preference would be more in the direction of the Exige S. 149 inches long, 68 wide and 2000 lbs soaking wet. Neither of the other two could touch it's 1.08 skidpad, although they could blow by it on the highway. Unfortunately the Lotus is unavailable with side impact airbags and other amenities that start to weigh on your mind in my age group, so I don't own one.

    As a compromise I'm driving something in the: 174/69/3177 range...

    Hey LuckyR,

    I sure wish i could join you for a cold frosty after the matches this weekend. And it would be a blast to head up there in a Lotus especially in some tight curvy sections. Although with street tires i think that 1.08g (sticky racing slicks on) is going to be about equal to the 1.0g of the GTR.

    Either one sure would be a fabulous present!!!

    TP, email me and I'll send you the software. Andresguazzelli@hotmail.com
    Btw, a multitrack recording software won't make you do better music. Being a good musician makes you do better music. The rest is just incidental ;)

    What kind of multitrack recording are you going to do Andres Guazzelli? Is it your first time, or have you done that before? There are issues to be touched before you even try to buy anything. The audio forums would be a good place to talk to people. It also depends if you are on MAC or PC.

    I would want money. Just buttloads of money and sackloads of money with jars filled with quarters and just stacks of dollar bills.

    MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    But seriously, I never get any money to spend for myself to get what I really want, I have to use all the money my parents give me (which is usually only $20 for every week or two) for lunch...

    Well I already have the girl of my dreams so I guess I can't really ask for much. I'll probably ask for some car stuff. A new wastegate, downpipe and a short throw shifter are all on my list this year. My gf hates buying me anything car related so I'll probably get some clothes from her.
