Another Wishlist...

As I've done in the past, I'm going to make a wishlist. This is so that anyone who is even remotely interested in getting me anything for Christmas/my birthday/graduation has a viable list of possibilities to work with. I am not suggesting that you HAVE to get me anything. I'm only trying to help out those that WANT to get me something. I wonder if I can disclaim this any further...

Anyway, I already have some very helpful lists published from Amazon.com, IMDb, and Weaponmasters.com:

Amazon.com wishlist
IMDb list of movies I'd like to buy (DVDs please)
Weaponmasters wishlist

Aside from those, I have some other general things:

--Books-- (preferably unabridged)

The Merry Advantures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
The Ethics of Ambiguity by Simone de Beauvoir
Meditations on First Philosophy by René Descartes
The Free Choice of the Will by Augustine of Hippo
Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle
The Republic by Plato
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (mostly for humor value)
The Science of Discworld I, II, & III by Terry Pratchett

(For those books that were written in another language, the original language would mean a lot to me, but I also wouldn't be able to read them... use your best judgement...)


If you want to buy me art, use these two links as a guide of what would fit my tastes...

Paths and Trails on Art.com
Favorites list on deviantART

I'm also looking for frames, but you should talk to me before getting any, as I would need to get the measurements right...

--Music CDs--

Sting - My Funny Valentine (Japanese release/import via Amazon)
Jake Shimabukuro - Dragon
Michael Giacchino - Ratatouille (soundtrack)
Howard Shore - Lord of the Rings soundtracks (all of them)
Turtle Island String Quartet - (anything really, since I don't have any of their albums)

CDs that contain...

Poulenc - Three Novelettes For Piano
Bach - Mass in B minor
Bach - Magnificat
Shostikovich - Piano Concerto No. 2
Debussy - La Mer

(If in doubt, look for: the Vienna Philharmonic; the Cleveland Philharmonic; the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields; the Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire; the London Philharmonic; Herbert von Karajan as director; Robert Shaw as director; Dietrich Fisher-Dieskau as a soloist; Deutsche Grammophon label; Naxos label; etc. If you're really in doubt, just come ask me. I won't be too concerned about a spoiled surprise.)

--Music Scores-- (i.e. sheet music)

Poulenc - Three Novelettes For Piano
Debussy - La Mer
Brahms - Ein Deutsche Requiem
Fauré - Pavane
Bach - Magnificat
Shostikovich - Piano Concerto No. 2

(Please talk to me if you want to deal with these.)


Please refer to the IMDb list, but here are some highlighted ones...

Les Misérable (Liam Neeson)
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
The Gods Must Be Crazy I & II (1980 & 1989)
King Ralph
The Incredibles
The Jungle Book (1967)
Keeping the Faith
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Star Trek: Generations
Star Trek: First Contact
Star Trek: Insurrection
The Teahouse of the August Moon (1956)
My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
Hamlet (1996, Kenneth Branagh)

--Practical/Miscellaneous Things--

Gift cards
Clothes (please ask me first)
Stetson cologne
Black leather bomber jacket
Two matching curtain rods (ask me for dimensions)
Four curtain panels (preferably green and not foofy)
Portable MP3 player
Noise-cancelling headphones
Corded power drill (with phillips screwdriver bit)

I figure this is enough to give a good idea of what to look for. PLEASE DO NOT THINK THAT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO GET ME ANYTHING. This is just in case you want to and need an idea of what to look for. That's all. Also, on the linked wishlists are some rather expensive items. I do not expect anyone to pick those up. Those are on there mostly as wishful thinking.
