Christmas Aftermath 2008.

So much time spent wrapping gifts, only to have them torn to shreds in a matter of seconds.

Alright, you guys know the routine. Post what gifts you received over the holidays this year so we can all be extremely jealous. I'll post my haul in this blog thread soon, but since my birthday is coming up tomorrow, I figure I'll post it all together because people often do the ol' "Oh this present is for Christmas AND your birthday!" thing. Honestly, that part doesn't even bother me... especially since I believe I made out like a bandit this year. What does bother me is that most people are out of town and/or busy with holiday stuff when my birthday rolls around each year. That's the part that truly sucks about late December birthdays. I think I gotta start making a habit of celebrating it in January or something.

Alright, on with the gifts! Post lists of whatcha got and feel free to include photos of your Christmas holiday hauls!

No gifts for moi. This has shaped up to be a rather shitty Christmas. Thank God I have He-Man and She-Ra to read about!

o got a hell of a lot of clothes, an ipod touch 8G, but best of all (being serious) i got a slinky. and this slinky is metal so i can't break it this time!


Yo (Guest) on 12/25/2008 10:33 pm

I got a HD 320 GB SATA, some clothes (meh) and a kinda neat stone turtle. For some reason I liked it.

This would be a good Christmas if I didn't had to struggle with the SATA since yesterday. Sigh...
Stupid SATA.

I got "Holy Shit"

User avatar

Coryjonc on 12/25/2008 11:19 pm

I got a bunch of graphic novels/comics.

B.P.R.D. (its a Hellboy spin-off) Vol. 1-2

Evil Dead

Batman: "The Killing Joke" and "The Long Halloween." I wanted Long Halloween after reading about it in the weeklies.

I also got a 6:1 scale figure of The Spirit. Its pretty cool. Gonna look real nice on the shelf with my 6:1 Ash (Army of Darkness) figure.

And a couple video games: Valkrya Chronicles (Epic strategy/RPG, five pickles). Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe (its fun playing as all the classic characters, but the combat is shallow and the single player gets old fast. Two pickes.) And Left 4 Dead (really fun, really intense online multiplayer. I've never been a fan of FPS, but I LOVE L4D. four pickles.)

Aye. Thats it.

HowardC on 12/25/2008 11:34 pm

I got a Mario edition DS and some games, including the very awesome metal slug 7, some games for my 360, including the new prince of persia, and a blu ray player, with some movies, which I haven't used yet because they forgot to buy me an hdmi cable and all the electronics stores are closed.

All-in-all it did pretty good.

Oh, I also got a drill. It is a nice drill but I already have one and its odd the person got me this when they got me the first drill and I specifically asked for a Vectrex. Alas, nobody ever gets me anything that would involve any actual work tracking down. I will have to console myself with my inferior raster/textured games. ;-)

HowardC on 12/25/2008 11:39 pm

ROG: Regarding your birthday, that really sucks, but myself I can't relate. Personally I haven't had anything resembling a party for my birthday since I was 10, because qutie frankly I can't stand that many people around me at one time. As I've gotten older I tend to think of my birthday as a reminder that I've been raped of another uneventful year by a cruel cruel god and I'm one step closer the sweet release of death.

Bavles on 12/26/2008 1:02 am

I got a bunch of guitar shit but no actual guitars...

I got a Capo (which i've wanted for a while), a nice new korg tuner, two new guitar straps, and a gig bag for my bass (finally).

I also got guitar hero aerosmith, old i know but i've wanted it, and some clothes.

robo_rob on 12/26/2008 1:29 am

I had quite a haul this Christmas. For Transformers stuff-25th Anniversary Optimus Prime, TFA Blitzwing, TFU Prowl (which I already have, so swapping for one I don't have), both TFU Target exclusive Legends sets, Titanium Grimlock.

For Nintendo- Animal Crossing: City Folk, Pokemon Ranger:Shadows of Almia, a big Mario figure that holds my DS.

Mad Balls- All of Sick Series 2 (which nothing past series 1 has shown up in GA)

and candy.

Man, I raked up good for an unemployed 30 year old man.

Playstation 3. And a stubby hammer. Fits in the pocket for covert face-bashing.


tennantfan (Guest) on 12/26/2008 1:42 am

Well, I got a Wii, and I got Game Party with it which I love. I also got a pink Canon Powershot Elph! Another game that I got was Mario Kart DS. I completed my Alias collection with season 5 of it. The only thing that was lacking this year was David Tennant wrapped up under the tree, but there's always next year!

Embee90 on 12/26/2008 2:17 am

I got a new digital camera and an HDTV for my dorm. Plus seasons 1 thru 3 of Robot Chicken. Those are my top gifts. Unfortunately I've spent most of the day fucking around with my sister's new computer . . . it's been nothing but problems so far.

captain516 on 12/26/2008 2:53 am

I got socks, and a box of Frero Rochers. But the hilight of my haul was this:

By the way, RoG, I can totally relate to what to say. My birthday is on December 30, so I have always suffered the "this is for Christmas and your birthday" fraud

User avatar

peh_ on 12/26/2008 4:41 am

From my wife I got "Bottle Rocket" and "Brand Upon The Brain" om DVD. But best of all was "Tomb of the Cybermen"... I also got a drill from from my Ma... That's all... But great. Best of all, I made a Christmas Gumbo for all who would stop by. All in all 20 is a good #.

Kitsunexus on 12/26/2008 5:09 am

I got an Air Hogs Gravity Car RC car that can drive on the walls and the ceiling, a soundfont full of vintage E-MU ESI-32 samples, an electronic dartboard, and an EZ-Flash 3-in-1 slot-2 flashcart for GBA games and NDS homebrew/NDS memory expansion/rumble pack to go along with my CycloDS Evolution.

The best present though was that I got my brother a DS and a Cyclo, so I have someone to race in MarioKart! :3

Kitsunexus on 12/26/2008 5:10 am

btw RoG you have the same birthday as my uncle. CAN'T YOU JUST NOT LIVE WITHOUT KNOWING THAT? HUH? HUH?


Teeyay (Guest) on 12/26/2008 10:14 am

I got all clothes and a steering wheel cover. Happy birthday, Rog. December birthdays still rock, even though we get stiffed. My birthday is exactly 3 weeks before Christmas, so when I was little I usually got the "I'll get your birthday present when I get your Christmas present!" thing from relatives. Of course then I would only get one present from each person who promised me two (rotten thing to do to a child, btw--make her wait 3 weeks for her birthday present and then not even give it to her.) and it was usually something cheap that was never good enough to be considered worth 2 gifts. Don't get me wrong, there are some great gifts that don't cost a lot, but they wouldn't even TRY! Once in awhile I did get the "This is for both occasions!" lie at Christmas, but usually they forgot a 2nd gift, or pretended to. Now my parents are the only ones I exchange gifts with, so I don't get that BS excuse anymore.

xscoot on 12/26/2008 10:24 am

150 in cash, $100 best buy gift card, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of destruction, and a star wars heroes keychain kit, with a C-3PO tin.

I really like the gift card, for a certain reason. It's like money, but I have to spend it. Lucky for me, Best buy sells videogames. :)

BustyYorneekaps on 12/26/2008 10:46 am

This year I got a set of Charlie Brown "Great Pumpkin" ornaments from Hallmark, a pair of PJ pants, three shirts and a cardigan from Old Navy (It never fails. I have more clothes than any one sane person needs and my family inevitably gets me clothes for Christmas), a Nightmare Before Christmas sheet set and comforter, a whole slew of Nightmare Before Christmas shirts, 'Doom' perfume from hot topic (cause it's got GIR on it and I

Mister Tea on 12/26/2008 11:43 am

I got a digital camera and a microcassette recorder (for the college, y'see). Problem is that A) I already owned both, and B) I never used either of them. So basically, I got nothing.


Number6Faye (Guest) on 12/26/2008 11:47 am

I got some clothes, a giant [really, really soft] sheep plush, a beef sausage (with hot pepper cheese to go with it), nutella, some Ring Manga, and the following DVDS: Jeff Dunham's "Very Special Christmas Special" (which rocks!), Police Squad! The Complete Series, Silent Hill, Death Note (movie), Death Note (the anime) Volume 4, and the grand finale....THE NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET BOXSET!!! I have the first NoES Special Edition DVD, but to receive the boxset of all 7 movies plus a kickass load of extra features? That is a major winner right there. Now I have both NoES and F13 series boxsets, and FvJ to go right between 'em on my shelf. And have a Happy Birthday, RoG! I hope you got lots of cool stuff! :)

I got £170 (around $250 I think), The Dark Knight, Iron Man and The Kill Bill boxset DVD's, a huge CD/DVD wallet, a car care kit, some socks, some pens, some beer (Tiger and Hoegaarden, both excellent brews) and some chocolate. Also I got a £10 Woolworths voucher, which is hilarious as they went bust a couple of weeks ago and have closed down now.

Not a bad haul.

MissEvie on 12/26/2008 7:02 pm

I was gifted w/ pj/s and a bow front fish tank and stand from hubby/ perfume and $$ from both parents and inlaws.
my grandmother gave me 40 or 50 of her homemade ovenmitts that way I have them for the rest of my life cause she won't be around forever. I do really love them and won't use anything but those ovenmits. I only had 10 before(10 yrs old and still in good shape) so now I have to figure out where to store all of them till my nieces and nephews start getting old enough for their own places!

And I have 2 nephews who also get screwed out of b-days. I always make sure to get them a b-day card and wrap the gift in b-day paper and not christmas. It bugs me that everyone just figures its just wrapping paper. Gave Mom her b-day paper in x-mas and she asked me what was up with that. Told her it was same as giving kids gifts.

"Hey, everybody! We're all gonna get laid!"

"Yes, it is a hybrid. It's a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilla. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff."

Geminate: I must know: what the hell is your icon?! I must know!!!


Kay (Guest) on 12/26/2008 9:51 pm

A really really awesome new laptop (which will actually be used for business, BTW)

Firefly DVD box set
Stranger Than Fiction DVD
A million books, including almost all of the Best American series
2 crochet books from the kids (I'm a crafty nerd!)
Tickets for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings!
Journey DVD
some pulpy "erotic" novels from the '60's
time with my awesome family!!!

I got socks, underwear, shirts, pants and plenty of beer. Exactly what I wanted.


Psychopathicus Rex (Guest) on 12/27/2008 2:21 am

I got 'The Best Golden Age Stories Ever Told', which is a bunch of cool old DC comics from the good ol' days, the first volume of 'The Question' (which is awesome, since I'm a huge fan of the character), 'The Best American Comics, 2007' (which is a bit disappointing, since it's mainly arty stuff, which I'm not into), 'How to Write Comics', by Peter David (I'm sure you're seeing a theme by now), a T-shirt, an old cartoon, 'The Incredibles' on DVD, and this toy called a Zeebee, plural Zeebeez. Has anyone else heard of this thing? It's a sort of hollow plastic hemisphere that you turn inside-out into a flat shape, then you drop it with a bit of a spin, and if you've done it right, it reverts to its original shape with a loud 'POP', and jumps a good six feet into the air. It's incredibly addictive, and the dog keeps trying to eat it.
So, overall, not too bad. I've certainly had worse years, and there's always the possibility of a gift coming in late.

Cherry Nirvana on 12/27/2008 2:29 am

brooke (Guest) on 12/27/2008 7:48 pm

I was given not one, but TWO toothbrushes. One was a really sweet travel toothbrush that has toothpaste in the handle and you twist a bit on the end and out it squirts ready to use, and an amazing electric one that I've has my eye on for a while. A blood typing kit, robot shaped pencil sharpener that gets wound up when you sharpen your pencil in it's chest and then walks around for a few seconds, a staple-less stapler, a Doctor Who action figure for my collection, a gnome shaped (and apparently scented) air freshener for my car, and a few other odd things that I can't recall.

-RoG- on 12/29/2008 12:49 am

Sorry for the delay in posting the promised photo o' my stuff, I was out of town the past two days. Anyway, here's what I got for Christmas and my birthday:

-Kryptonite New York "Fahgettaboudit" bicycle lock. (If anybody steals my bike with this thing on it, then they deserve the bike more than I do.)

-MacGyver: The Complete Series DVD set. (Finally I can watch all my favorite episodes, especially the ones where Mac squares off against his arch nemesis, Murdock!)

-Transformers Darth Vader / Death Star. (Holy crap is this thing huge! But the fact that Darth can transform into the Death Star makes this toy absolutely insane. Expect some more in-depth coverage of this bad boy in the blog later on.)

-Trick 'r Treat: The Book (I've been dying to see this movie and they're fools for not having already released it in theaters this past October, but at least this book will tide me over.)

-Trick 'r Treat: Sam Figure (Spooooky lil' Sam and his awesome pumpkin lollipop.)

-Eagle Catcher (No, I'm not planning on catching eagles, but I love martial arts and this will make my eagle claw OH SO DEADLY. Well, this and the cruel tutelage of Pai Mei.)

-Pac-Man "Eat Me" Wrist Band (To help me live wrist strong.)

-Swimming Jellyfish Lamp (Can't begin to tell you how awesome this thing is, so I'll just have to show you a video of them in action in a future blog post. Trust me when I say there's nothing quite as relaxing as falling asleep to the sight of glowing jellyfish swimming before your eyes.)

-Jenga: Donkey Kong Collector's Edition (Jenga is already a pretty good party game, but when you add Donkey Kong to the mix and require the players to compete to see who can make Mario reach to the top of the tower first, it because absolutely awesome.)

-Twisted X-Mas: Jack Frost (I really like this series of figures, and Jack Frost is by far the coolest. Gotta love the tortured, frozen little down beneath him too.)

-Pac-Man Hoodie (Between this and my Domo-Kun hoodie, I am slowly becoming the king of awesome hoodies.)

-Wigfield CD (The cast of "Strangers With Candy" performing their fantastic little story over the span of 4 hours. Should be great for my next long car ride.)

-Sneakers DVD (There will never be a greater hacker movie, EVER.)

-The Greatest American Hero: Complete Series DVD set. (Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air now that I have the entire set. It even comes with a replica of Ralph's cape!)

-Transformers Soundwave: Commemorative Edition (If you want the original Soundwave figure but don't wanna shell out a couple hundred, this one is damn near perfect. Seriously, they did a hell of a nice job on it. Now I await a giant Masterpiece edition.)

-Star Wars Jawas: Collectible Mini Busts (Two Jawas. One with a blaster, one salvaging parts. Both have light-up eyes. Doesn't get much better than that.)

-Tales From The Crypt: Season Four DVD (One of the only seasons from the show I didn't already have on DVD. Rawk.)

-Poultrygeist DVD (Been meaning to check out this Troma flick. Pure cheese... and chicken.)

-Sledge Hammer: Season Two DVD (One of the greatest and most underrated shows of the eighties. This final season has guest stars including Adam Ant, Ray Walston and Davy Jones. Trust me, I know what I'm doing.)

-The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies DVD (If only all movies had titles this perfect.)

-Maniac Cop: Special Edition DVD (Bruce Campbell, Tom Atkins and Robert Z'Dar all together in one movie. Need I say more?)

-Final Exam DVD (Hilarious 80s slasher flick that is virtually unknown to most. Saw this at the New Beverly Cinema and simply had to have it. So glad it finally came out on DVD.)

-Christmas Evil DVD (Got this from my I-Mockery Secret Santa person and it's a movie I had been meaning to see for a long time. Wrote a review of it in the Weeklies section recently too.)

-Guitar Center Gift Card (Gonna put this towards a new guitar multi-pedal. Haven't bought a new one in over ten years, so I'm looking forward to messing around with some new effects. For you music gearheads who want to know, I'm probably gonna go for the Boss GT-10.)

trixie (Guest) on 12/29/2008 10:27 am

Well I hope I'm not ruining it for you, but the Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies kinda blows...

But the title is cool, and it reminds me of how I owned Blood Orgy of the She-Devils for a few years on VHS just because the cover art and title were so cool, though the movie was easily horrid...but then I had to sell it to make ends meet a few years ago.

Anyways, I had one of those years where I went and bought people really cool gifts, and in return received nothing but gift cards. It always goes that way, when someone finds something awesome for me, all I've given them in return is a crappy gift or gift card. But at least I got enough Target cards to put a good chunk of $ down on a Wii finally. But I also got a bunch of John Waters and Dario Argento DVDs from my boyfriend, which was pretty cool, including a copy of Four Flies On Grey Velvet that was a german release, so its really bizarre, and The Bird With the Crystal Plumage that's a region 2 dvd, unfortunately, so I'll have to resell that on Ebay.

Hey Rog,

The Transformers Darth Vader is badass. I've had mine for awhile. Note the tiny Tie Fighters turn into little drones! Also the Soundwave is actually a Soundblaster made into Soundwave. Long story kinda shot- The Original Soundwave mold is ruined. So Hasbro used the Soundblaster mold (same guy with an upgrade in Japan) to make a Soundwave. Either way thats some serious robot presents you received.

I had my birthday on the 22nd and I never really ask for much on it anyways. I just got clothing. And a cake. And we saw The Day The Earth Stood Still, which SUCKED.

For Christmas, my haul was:
- Victoria's Secret terrycloth spa robe
- 22" flatscreen TV
- Mini snowglobe with my name on it
- Treble clef and music note pattern silver snowflake and chain
- Eddie Bauer beaded necklace
- Slippers of the regular (from my dad) and the Freudian (from his brother) varieties
- $25 to Borders on a Naruto gift card (Believe it!)
- $25 to (going for MariMite season 2)
- $25 to Wal Mart (I used it for a TV stand for the flatscreen, which was a piece of crap; luckily I was able to return it)
