Alright guys, so the last Secret Satans thread had a few people's suggestions out of the, literally, hundreds of millions of people we have signed up for this forum event, but this will be a more organized list of forumers with general ideas.
Amazon Wishlists are acceptable, but they should be used as a last resort.
If you somehow come under some pressure at work or some other real life mumbo-jumbo and don't have time to put together something nice and cool, that's an acceptable time to use a wishlist. Otherwise, honestly, just put some damn thought into what you're going to get someone.
Please, email email@example.com with this template
[ b]Your name - [ /b]Your suggestions!
and your name in the subject header.
This way, everyone who puts their name down will be on the list. There's no limit to your suggestions, no minimum. If you choose not to suggest anything, that's cool, too, dogg. Just please email the above address with your name in the subject header.
Skull Man -
I have a dang ol wishlist in my sig but really anything that is not comics is ok, I don't want your comics. I have a wii, a PS2 and a DS. I like stuff that is good stuff.
i like movies a lot, especially criterions (my
collection can be found here: http://satansfingers.dvdaf.com/owned
it is kind of lacking because i mostly buy dvds based on cheapness) i
own a mac, a 360 and a ps2. i only have madden/skate for the 360;
sotc, beyond good and evil, okami and gh2 for the ps2. i am
ridiculously particular about clothes so uh i wouldn't really
recommend shirts or the like. i like to read but don't own many books.
never really read any comic books but i've enjoyed y: the last man and
transmet so take that as you will. i'm cool with nsfw or whatever, i
like to be amused. this is all just an idea of stuff i like, though,
and i would be equally happy to get a bunch of stuff that you really
like. i would appreciate it if whoever has me tried to get my gift
here by mid-december, since after that i'll be going home for a month
or so for winter break, and i don't really want a box sitting by my
apartment door for weeks on end.
I wear a medium shirt, and like lots of stuff. I don't want to limit you though. The amazon wishlist should be a little bit of help, give you a taste of what I like, but please don't feel obligated to follow it. I'm into bad movies (that can still be funny), scifi fantasy stuff, and random art. I like surprises. I drink and smoke, if that helps any. Also, NSFW is a-ok. Especially of yourself, whomever you are. I'm not picky.
Here's the wishlist link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2X3IE5MZW0KNF/
I have a wishlist in my sig for a few ideas. I wear a large size T-Shirt, which is really fucking strange since I weigh 155 Lbs. on a good day. I play M:TG quite a bit so if you want to throw in a booster pack or 2 of that, I have NO problems with that. I have a DS with mario Kart DS, WarioWare and Puzzle Quest. I enjoy RPG's but don't get me Final Fantasy III as I played it and did not enjoy it. Don't worry too much about what to get me, I am pretty easy to please.
GABBO GABBO GABBO (manifest)
Things that I would really like for SS would be random stuff that you're into that you think is cool. Do you live in some far off place (not NJ like me) and have access to awesome food, drink, booze, cigars that I have never tried? That would be the best.
As you can tell, I enjoy drinking (I'm really into wine), and I enjoy having a cigar every now and then. I don't smoke any other tobacco products (no cigarettes).
I'm into video games, and I don't have much for the Wii. Just twilight princess, mario strikers, wii sports and wii play. If you want to get me a game for Wii, something that I could play with my girlfriend and other roommates that I live with would be AWESOME.
I have Xbox 360 but I don't play it much anymore. I'm gonna pick up Halo 3 on my own, so that pretty much exhausts all the games I still need to play for the 360.
NSFW is ok if its extraordinarily funny.
The Lovely Bastard -
I am actually very easy to shop for. I like most everything I get, so don't let this daunt you if you have a bitchin' rad idea.
I don't really read many books, as I am constantly writing or doing some sort of homework or working. And when I do read, it is mostly non fiction. However, I am a huge fan of graphic novels and comic books, and am really starting to dig into Grant Morrison's stuff. I have Seven Soldiers, Animal Man, The Flith, and Arkham Asylum, so if you are going that route, anything not that woud be great. Or, if you have an idea for something I might like, ask maybe Keith or Redeemer to see if I have it, as my trade library is 50 books strong.
I love movies, but DVDs are a crapshoot. I never rent, only buy. I love awful b-grade movies. Shit films make me laugh. I am really big on 80's Action Movies and Eurotrash B-Horror movies like those from Hammer.
I have a DS, a Wii, and a PS2. I have very few Wii games (only Trauma Center, Twilight Princess, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance), so that route would awesome. I do not PC game at all. I wear an XL shirt, and will probably wear anything. NSFW is super awesome. Feel free to disregard all of this if you have a better idea. I am up for anything.
I am an art student and also a gamer. I have a high-end gaming PC as well as a Wii and a PSP. I want to get into comic books, although I've barely read anything (Kingdom Come is pretty much it) and I'm not really sure where to start so anything you think is awesome would be welcome. I'm a size L in shirts, and I have a light fetish for baseball caps. Feel free to surprise me with anything, and NSFW stuff is cool with me, as long as the packaging is plain.
Scarlet St. -
So there's not much I should really ask for while I'm away in Japan since I have very little from back home with me. I do have a DS still, but no gaming machine or consoles here with me. I love a lot of different music from classical to hip hop, so that's kind of a dead end or a huge opportunity to succeed. Last year Satansfingers sent me a mix CD and it was coolness (but that might only be because I trust his music tastes normally). I really dig Minneapolis' Rhyme Sayers Entertainment label, but I already have the discographies I want.
the Urawa Red Diamonds, a Japanese soccer team. Favorite players are Tatsuya Tanaka (11) and Keita Suzuki (13). Their site isn't easily navigated if you don't know Japanese, but maybe there's something cool you can find on eBay. Who knows. Just a thought.
I really dig movies, especially old ones, but I already have more films noir DVD sets and individual films than you can shake a stick at.
I'm not a picky guy, so there's a good chance your gift won't make me throw up like Fizban's alcohol gift to me last year.
I don't really like anime or any of that, and trust me I get enough of it being here. No need to send that stuff, I get enough of it from family and relatives who don't know that I would feel awkward walking around in a Japanese shirt thing. I'm not a huge comic reader, but I got a couple graphic novels at the recommendation of Penguin Incarnate, and those were good, so if you're dead set on sending me one, I'd talk to him for a recommendation.
Amazon.co.jp does have an English language section, but it is basically their way of saying this is our English-language music and books section. So you basically get screwed because it's all imported and much more expensive than normal.
NSFW stuff is fine, but please nothing on the outside of the box! Sorry for the shipping price. My address may change (I will find out on Thursday what I can do about this, but at any rate, if it will be changing and I don't tell you in time for Christmas, don't sweat it, I can wait!)
<3 (heart) -
Gaming-wise, I have a decent PC (1gig of RAM, X800, 3400+, etc), a PS2, and a DS. I would love to get a PSP for xmas.
I like reading books and watching movies.
I love The Office, especially Jenna Fischer.
NSFW is probably ok. I don't really desire fleshlights/sextoys/porn though.
I am a skinny dude so if you're going to buy clothings, small or medium will probably do it.
Also a wishlist in my sig if you are not creative.
No NSFW, this is going to my parent's house in California so you don't have to mortgage your left nut (or ovary) to send me things out here in China. Yes, they open things that they should not open. I wear an extra large shirt. After year one, I don't like to say much in the way of "give me this kind of stuff", so be creative. Thanks in advance!
Video Games: I have an XBox 360, any games I am looking for are on my wish list
Clothes: Shirt - XL
Pants - 38/32
Shoes - 11.5
Music: I am a 90's college hippy... Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Blues Traveler, you get the idea. Also old stuff like Led Zepplin or The Beatles.
Movies: Action and Comedy mostly. Some Drama is ok as long as it isnt preachy
Books: I like pretty much any Stephen King or the like. Comics wise, I havent read in a long while, but I'm wanting to get back into it. So anything would be fine.
Personal: I work in television, I get up very early.
NSFW: its ok with me. I just have to try to explain it to me wife.
There is a wishlist in my sig, dont feel like you have to buy off of it. It's just there for ideas, or if you can't think of anything because of my newness.
Finally, anything hand made or with a lot of thought will make me love you forever.
I have a 360, Wii, and a PC that can run any of the games out right now, as far as games go I like action, strategy, RPGs, barbie horse adventures, the works. I'm pretty flexible when it comes to what makes a good movie or book, and I haven't really been watching or buying that many of either so those are always good. I'm also into photography and cinematography. My t-shirt size is large, NSFW is cool, original gifts that have nothing to do with anything in this post are also awesome. And if you can't think of anything I have a wish list in my sig.
â€“ Iâ€™d really rather leave this up to
you. Be creative, be unique, hell..hand make
something. That kind of stuff usually kicks ass. If
youâ€™re going for shirts and the like XL to XXL
depending on the cut. I own a PS2 and a Wii and not
very many games for either, so if youâ€™re thinking of
something that is a â€œmust playâ€ go for it. My
computer can game, but I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s up to
snuff for the most current things out there. It can
handle WoW pretty well (I donâ€™t play it anymore). Iâ€™m
a sailor, a writer, love to travel, and
really..whatever you want to come up with works for
me. NSFW is alright if youâ€™re in a bind and canâ€™t
come up with anything elseâ€¦.just donâ€™t emblazon it on
the box. Booze and booze related products arenâ€™t so
- i have a wishlist with a billion items on it if you're uncreative (like redeemer). i love DC stuff, especially robin and teen titans. my favorite mega man is mega man. i have a lot of systems but i don't really need games unless you see me posting that I want something (like a PS3 and Ratchet & Clank). i don't really need clothes or anything unless you can find this shirt
in which case pay whatever you need to to acquire it for me (i wear a small). i collect DC heroclix so that can work. i don't have any of the special promo ones. i like peanut butter and banana and strawberry (sometimes all at once!) so that flavored candy and sweets is cool. my favorite art styles are the more simple, sleek kind of stuff (like animation or golden/silver age comics) if you want to get a poster or draw something or have darwyn cooke draw me a picture. also i like this skateboard deck
but i would need wheels and trucks and that shit on it as well because i can't surf the winds (yet) I don't mind secondhand items as long as they're not beaten to shit. Go ahead and save some money if you can.
Squashua - I'm a very easily internet-searchable person (if you go by
any iteration or my name, my username, etc.) and I do have an Amazon
wish list which could be used for ideas. I'm good with whatever, you
don't have to knock yourself out, but I'm investigating the heck out
of my target (just like I did last year to my targets), and I
appreciate effort over expense. I'm into comic books, Lovecraft, PCs,
pen-and-paper RPGs, I own a Wii, DS, two dachshunds, and have a baby
on the way. I own the primary expected-to-own games for all my
systems, a plush Cthulhu, Baby's First Mythos, and Mother Hydra's
Shirt size XL, loves t-shirts, has PS2, Wii, and DS, but already owns a lot games, has a PC, but it's pretty crappy, into classic movies, DCAU, and books, but will take just about any gift. Be creative if you can! Wishlist in sig as a guideline/last resort.
I have a PS2, Wii, DS Lite and an X-Box 360. I also spend too much money on video games, so chances are if you get me a good game for those systems I will already have it. One caveat: I picked up a SNES a while back for a steal, but I have no games for it. Something with the words "Final" or "Chrono" for that system would be awesome.
I enjoy reading, both novels and comic books. You can figure out what sort of comic books I like by checking out my posts in the Comic Book thread here and the stuff in Graphic Violence. As for regular novels, any sort of quality fiction is fine, but I enjoy things with science fiction or fantastical elements especially.
I am a huge movie buff. Here
is my DVD Aficionado list, which I believe is up to date now. Anything from the Criterion Collection is probably a sure bet. As you can tell from the list, I also enjoy watching anime, but this being SE++, I doubt my Secret Santa wants to go through the trouble of finding a quality anime that I haven't already purchased.
I enjoy music of nearly all kinds. As of late I've been buying a lot of soundtracks and electronica. If you're from another country, maybe send me something by an artist you like there. If you're Russian, get me some CDs by Dolphin. My brother got a couple of his albums when he was in Russia a while back, and I have not found any sites online that sell his stuff.
My shirt size is medium. I'm twenty-two, so NSFW stuff is fine, though I don't know why you'd have to send that sort of thing when I've got such a huge description-thing going on here.
Gosh, what else is there? I'm a huge Transformers buff, but I have pretty much all of the Movie toys I want. My profile says I like 40k and NERF, but I have enough of both of enough to last me a while. If you're an artist, maybe offer to draw me a few pages of a comic? I don't really have a "forum avatar" like some people, so it's not like you can do a portrait of me. Sorry for making it hard on you, hypothetical artists.
TL;DR for y'all:
Surprise me. In a good way.
Hi shoe Scarlet's notes: Hunter u r so dum
I am hunter
X-box 360 games or wireless mic
Star Wars stuff
Marvel Zombies series 2
Iron Man comics or stuff
Comedy CD's or DVD's
- Really just about anything would be awesome, I have an Xbox360 but my laptop is on the fritz so no PC games please. I love Science-Fiction and fantasy stuff
in terms of books I already have a lot of Iain Banks, Asimov, Philip K. Dick, but as for Gene Wolfe I only have the Shadow and Claw concentraded book. I don't have many DVD's aside from Pan's Labyrinth and most of the Tartan Asia library.
and of course a bunch of music
Prog. Rock, Metal, some electronic/eclectic stuff like Squarepusher and Aphex Twin and the Knife.
etc but if you want to suprise me that would be awesome, I live in Wales so anything I can't get over here (read: anything) would be amazing. I'll make a wishlist on Amazon and put it in my sig just in case you need some more ideas.
buy me whatever you want. NSFW is allowed. XXL shirt if you want to know. i've never read a comic book in my life but i am open to the idea, so if you do that, there is no chance of sending something i already have. i don't have a gaming PC. ask around if you need specifics, i'm sure you can find someone that can get in touch with me.
No anime. Really, no anime. Not a big fan of Japanese stuff, too, but I guess it's okay if it's really rad.
Books are perfectly fine, but I don't really read comics. It's cool if it's a good one, though. Last year I got Watchmen and I really liked it. And I'm fine with every book genre, just ask someone to PM me if you want to know more.
Music is mostly punk rock and ska, PM for more.
Not a big fan of movies, but hey, it's awesome, it's fine, again, PM.
Games? Every Nintendo console (PAL!), DS and GBA, a PC, just PM, you know the deal.
Shirt size L, and that's it, I guess.
NSFW is kinda okay.
I also really love self made stuff because that shows that you care. But stuff from Amazon is totally okay, since you're probably from America and I'm in Europe.
Just give me something awesome.
- The DS is the only current gaming machine, shirt size is
between an american M and L. To be honest, just do whatever you want,
maybe not that NSFW. If you are really troubled on what to do, just relay
a pm to me through PotU. Please remember that I am in Europe, so PAL if
- For the easy point, i have a clickable sig for wishlist. I am a major collector of dvds so beware i might have it, then again if i dont i would love it. This especially applies to al pacino non godfather movies. That aside i am really into architecture, but i probably have all the books and dvds related to that field already, but if there is some other medium then i probably do not have it. Booktapes, i loves me some booktapes. I also like comics if they are stand alone series. I havnt bought a DS game in about a year and have no clue whats good for it, but i like the system. Valve is my favorite gaming company, their swag looks pretty nice these days plushy wise. I dig legos. I also dig maps, fantasy or real as long as they are exotic.
Funny presents are the bestevez.
There's a wishlist in my sig for ideas, but also anything involving most video games (RPG or adventure especially), I have a 360 and PS2 and PC. I also enjoy cooking and am trying to get into more comic books: right now I'm reading Transmetropolitan, Y: The Last Man, and Invincible. Other comics for "new" comic book people would be awesome. Random stuff is also cool. I live on my own, so "adult" stuff is acceptable too, I guess O.o And clothing wise, I wear a medium dude's shirt.
Please no video games, unless they are the DS titles Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Puzzle Quest, Worms: Open Warfare 2, or Final Fantasy XII, in that order. If you want to buy me a 360, I won't stop you. Also, I love books. Seriously love them. You can't go wrong buying me a few of your very favorite books, since I especially enjoy reading books that mean something to the person that gives them to me. T-shirt size XL, hoodie size XXL, and no sort of present is off-limits. NOTE: I DO NOT MIND IF YOU GIVE ME USED DS GAMES OR BOOKS. USED IS A-OK.
My amazon wishlist is basically all I want. I am opened to other comics though, like Sandman or 30 Days of Night.
Zombie comics are cool too.
Oh and Fables.
- I really am incredibly easy to please. I own a PS2, a Wii, a DS, a Gamecube and a GBA. I enjoy RPGs the most, but am open to anything from sports to shooters to farming simulators. I don't mind used games at all. I wear an XL shirt. I like Sci-Fi, Horror, and Fantasy. I also enjoy movies and books. My sig image is also a link to a wishlist. If you must, I don't mind getting something from it, though I would prefer you to be at least somewhat creative. I am also something of a history nerd, and I enjoy Chinese history a good deal. NSFW is okay, just make sure there's nothing suspect on the outside of the box. Overall, just have fun with it.
- my shirt size is XL but I'm rather picky about what I wear. PA stuff is cool, not much else in terms of gaming though.
As far as music goes, my tastes are rather broad. It's probably not the best idea unless it's stereolab related.
Video games (I'll list what I own/like):
I own a Sega Genesis w/ Death and Return of Superman, and Shinobi
PS2: Katamari, GH 1 & 2, Kingdom Hearts 1, and God of War.
xbox: I have a fuckton of games, so nothing for this unless you get stubbs the zombie
DS: EBA, chocobo tales, mario kart, FFIII, FFVI, Pokemans, Brain Age, phoenix wright, and others.
Wii : Twilight Princess, Mario Party 8, Wii Play/sports, Super Paper Mario
I LIKE USED GAMES IF THEY WORK! There are a million good GC games I've never played *hint hint*.
I like adventure/action games, some RPGs, fighters, and multiplayer games.
Wii accessories are good too, I don't have a classic controller (or a GC one at that) and one can never have enough wii points. I am also looking for a carrying case.
I guess as far as everything else goes, NSFW is ok in the box, but no gay porn/dildos please. I don't want to have to explain that (I'd find this funny, but my girlfriend/roommates not so much).
Alcohol is awesome! I hate jack daniels though.
Smokeables are ok too. I also appreciate anything that's homemade!
I would like anything you get me but I don't really want any shirts or anything like that. I'm pretty picky about what I wear. I do like hats though. Hats are nice. I love alice in wonderland stuff, so anything like that is good. I love to read so books are good too. I like weird jewelry and homemade stuff is fine too. I would love some games for my ds. NSFW stuff is fine as long as it's not too gross. Here is a link to my amazon wishlist to give you some ideas: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2HPNPX8M31QFJ/
I'm sure I will like anything that I get.
the wish list.
Something not on the wish list, but it would be cool if I got
. I prefer; 2B,
B, HB, F, H, 2H, 3H and 4H. You don't have to order them from Dick
Blick, if you happen to have a local hobby/art shop, go there. I do
prefer General's Graphite Pencils but brand isn't really an issue. The
only thing that I really care about is what the core is rated (how hard
the pencil core is).
A little bit about me:
I am an Art and Animation student, so art supplies are awesome. I plan
on learning how to paint with watercolors within the next couple months.
I play games and I consider myself a gamer, but I don't have much to
show for it. I have a decent pc (I can run The Orange Box). I have a
Gamecube and a GBA SP. I have Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario
Sunshine, Double Dash, Pikmin and Windwaker for my Gamecube. I have
Pokemon Emerald, Pokemon FireRed, Mario Kart, FZero: Maximum Velocity
and Metroid: Zero Mission for the GBA.
All that crap being said, buy what you wish to. Have fun thinking up
shit to send me, really. Also, if you need help finding something for
me, ask Teefs.
I'm really comfortable with anything you choose to send me,
that's the whole point of Secret Satans right? Yet, if you can't think
of anything, here are a few things to note.
I have a Wii, a 360, and a DS.
I wear a size medium/large shirt (large for 100% cotton)
I am a music junkie, and I love getting music from people.
I am a broke college student as well, so anything you think
would make life more interesting would be a welcome joy
I have lots and lots of movies, so that'd be a tough buy. Also, if you're going to go with books, it might be best to avoid science fiction unless it's an obscure author that I've probably never heard of. I'm pretty much an XL for shirts but I don't really need any clothes. I have a DS, a Wii, a PS2, and a fairly beefy gaming PC. The only games I have for the DS are Tetris, Castlevania: PoR, and Brain Age. For the Wii I have Metroid, Trauma Center, and Elebits. The Orange Box is the only recent game that I'm playing on the PC but it's pretty likely I'll buy Bioshock before too long. If you're stuck, here's a link to my wishlist, http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3EVSSQB0877TR/
I have an NES, Genesis, PSP (no games though please! accessories good), 360 and (soon) PS3. I also have a Powerbook G4 and a few PCs, none that I play games on. I wear a M in shirts, shoes a 12 or so. Movies are good. Ones that are horror -ish with a plot, not just gonzo gore (Saw series and the like; I don't like thems). Comedy, drama, anything that is well written and actually immerses me in the story. DVD or Blu-Ray. The same goes for books. Also educational books - preferably something to do with information technology or technology in general. Music: I'm REALLY into Broadcast, but I can't find their CDs anywhere! So them or other artists in the same general scope would be awesome.
Also cultural or regional items. I'm sure you're not from Colorado, so a little something from your area (especially if you're outside the US!) would be awesome. A good cigar is appreciated too. Oh and also also, NSFW gifts are welcome in my home.
Lord Dave / EclipsedPlanet -
We like stuff. We have a Wii and some DSeses. Lord Dave loves The Simpsons. EclipsedPlanet is a lady. We don't mind NSFW stuff. Send us something rad and unique, like a human heart or a subscription to the Cheese Of The Month Club.
- I've got a 360, Wii, DS and pretty up to date PC, and I'm always interested in cool games especially RPG or adventure games.(I already pre-ordered Mass Effect and SSB:B so don't get that) I'm also a huge fan of older P&P Shadowrun , but I have most of the books for it. Also collect and play 2nd Ed. AD&D, I always wanted to get into Planescape and only have the core box set and Monstrous Compendium for it. I'm always looking for good fantasy or SF. I have LOTR, Malazan, Dune, Foundations, Robots, 2001's series. Any other good series would be cool(Wheel of Time and Shanara would not be cool.). Comics especially ones featuring J'onn Jones are also sweet. I also enjoy board games and already have: LOTR Risk, Godstorm Risk, History of the World, Axis and Allies(w/World @ War Expansion), Arkham (+ 1st 2 expansions) and vanilla Settlers of Catan. No NSFW stuff, sorry. Awesome unique or homemade stuff is cool though. As is foods/recipes. Whatever you do I'm sure it'll be great.
Comics I've read: V for Vendetta, Watchmen, American Born Chinese, Preacher, a lot of Sandman, Outlaw Nation, Civil War. Everything else is fair game.
Movies: I like comedies the most, and thought provoking dramas. Not really a fan of horrors.
Music: I like a lot of weird stuff. I've started listening to a lot of funk music. I also like a lot of alternative stuff, Gogol Bordello and Johnny Cash.
Games: I've got a Ps2, Gamecube and a DS. My computer is a year old laptop. It can run WoW, but I'm not sure about stuff higher than that. I'm not into sports games or FPS games, but I'm willing to give anything a try.
Books: Same as movies, really. If it's interesting enough for me to finish it, that's good enough for me.
Clothes: An XL will do me.
i'm putting this here because i guess it's protocol and it seems like you guys don't fuck around with your gift giving, but if you want to keep it low-key and play off a neat idea you have then i'll be more than happy. i know it'll probably be hard enough just getting your shit to me. i like to read short stories, especially stuff that's not really genre, but contemporary and well-recieved. that doesn't mean gaiman, by the way, it means murakami, but i already have his stuff so guess again
other than that, i'm a creative guy so if you want to send me something i can use in that manner i'll be keen to take it on as a challenge. i'm easy to please, anything with a funky design ethic will make me giddy even if it only extends to the packaging. i'm not much into comics or anime, but i am into stuff that's doing something new and/or breaking boundaries of media and genres - things that will be remembered.
feel free to stalk through my post history obsessively to design the perfect gift to completely blow me away. or just pick one thing i've said, make a rash judgement about what it means in relation to my needs and tastes, and buy away. i just like opening things.
- I have a DS. I wear Large shirts.
Dearest Satan, for Christmas I know what I don't want more than what I do. Please, no games as I'm several dozen behind already, no NSFW material as I've probably seen whatever you'd send me, and no donations to charity, because that is for faggots. The best idea might be to get me something that is specific to your region, as I don't travel much.
I will be happy with anything you decide to get me even NSFW if you so choose regardless of price or quantity. A few things that I am into that will better give you an idea of what I like are: Comic Books (DC being my universe of choice) but my collection is limited mostly to graphic novels and trades so far, I read fiction novels A LOT but again my collection is limited to mostly urban fantasy despite the fact that I like most any good book. I own a DS but don't own any games for that have come out in the last year and a half. I watch a lot of movies and am a pretty big nerd (although I don't play pen & paper crap). If you choose to give me something unrelated to any of the above that would be awesome, especially if whatever you got me is something you like and think I would enjoy as well.
Caulk Bite -
Pretty much anything to do with transforming giant robots, generally the more complex, the better. If that gets too far into the Too Expensive range, I did just get the latest Manowar CD, found out I like the band a whole lot, and wouldn't mind getting older ones. Booze wouldn't go to waste either. NSFW is fine, just so long as the package is marked as such (so's I don't open up a double-ended dildo in front of my nieces or something.
