    Re: What to buy "me" (you) for Christmas

    A Paul Languedoc Hollowbody Guitar... I mean, it's only $10,000.

    The Wii Play game costs abour $50 and comes with an extra controller. A controller on its own costs about $40, so I would say the game is worth getting. It has seven different games on it of varying degrees of actual fun, but it is very family-friendly and worth the extra $10 overall. Unfortunately however, the extra controller that comes with Wii Play is missing the "nunchuck," which is required for most games, so you'll have to buy that too (this crap gets expensive in a hurry, doesn't it?).

    Aside from than that I've pretty much enjoyed all of the other games I've played on my Wii, so I'd just go with what games look cool. Obviously with a son into football he's going to want the Madden game for Wii.
    ;D
    I've never played Madden for Wii, but I have heard its fun.

    I have Wii sports and that is the game we play most frequently when we have people over to hang out. I also have the Legend of Zelda, which is an amazing game that will take you about 40 or 50 hours to beat if you are into fantasy games. Aside from that....I heard Super Mario Galaxy is supposed to be good (if your kids like Mario) and so is Super Smash Brothers, which is coming out relatively soon.

    I actually played a Wii for the first time last night... it was awesome.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can play GameCube games on the Wii, you just need the GC controller. If that's the case, I'd get the Mario Kart game that was made for GC. Those games are always a blast.

    You have any suggestions for a nice, cheap, entry level acoustic?
    Everything I've read has told me a Seagull S-6 is the way to go

    Yeah, Seagulls are nice guitars. Also, Yamaha makes a nice entry level acoustic. They have solid spruce tops (as opposed to just laminated wood).

    Here are a couple models I suggest:

    Yamaha FG700S: http://www.yamaha.com/guitars/products/productdetail/0,,CNTID%25253D60088%252526CTID%25253D600014%25252 6CNTYP%25253DPRODUCT,00.html

    Seagull Minijumbo (Has solid cedar top, Really a great sounding guitar):
    http://www.seagullguitars.com/productentouragerusticmj.htm

    Takamine GS330S (has solid cedar top as well):
    http://www.takamine.com/?fa=detail&mid=757&sid=524
