Got my guitar tuned to drop C, been gargling bleach and gravel all day (not really...) Time to shred some f'ing death metal.

Nice!

My silly purchase: Razer Deathadder Black Edition

IMAGE(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v282/Thin_J/razer-deathadder-black-edition-main.jpg)

It's the same Deathadder with the 3500 dpi sensor, but without the glossy plastic sides and no stupid blue LED lighting.

Nice, I've always wanted something more low-key from Razer... blue LEDs are so 2003. Too bad their mice give me hand-cramps.

Speaking of glossy plastic and blue LED's... finally something to replace my first gen Drobo. If I had a choice, I wouldn't see any of the LED's without taking the cover off, and the entire thing would be matte black.

Technically a February purchase, but I didn't receive until today. Bought off another Goodjer (A++ would buy again etc etc), the Rock Pedal upgrade to the drum kit makes it better and better. Definitely a silly purchase, but goddamn if I don't notice the difference already. It looks and feels hells of badass, and it makes playing drums even better.

Looks like all you need now is a third cymbal and you'll be set. Sadly, despite the fact that Mrs AnimeJ is buying me the Squier strat, I don't think I could sell her on a $99 pedal.

I was fortunate to get it for much less than that, and I didn't tell Mrs. Gravey until it was already in the mail. I doubt she'd buy me the Strat though, so I think you win this one.

And I do want that third cymbal, but they only seem to sell them in pairs up here.

Thanks to you silly enablers, I ordered Wrath of Ashardalon, and my wife said she would play it with me when I got it:)

I've wanted to learn guitar for years, and Mrs AnimeJ knows this, so I get by on dual purpose with an added dash of being gone for a year. As for single cymbals, Amazon.com lists em, but no idea if they'll ship those to strange mountains in Japan where crazed teenagers race cars.

Well I actually bought these last month, but I only just found the time to unbox everything:

From Left to Right, that's:

1. Belkin n52te SpeedPad
2. NuForce uDAC2-HP
3. Xbox 360 Controller
4. Sennheiser HD428 Headphones

With the exception of the 360 Controller, everything else was enabled by all the fine, fine folks on these forums.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooo

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I've been thinking about getting one of these for a while.

I bought this in February. I have an opportunity to wear a top hat maybe twice a year. I went to an actual haberdasher in New Orleans to get it (crazy place, they've been in business in the same location for about 90 years).

One of my top-hat wearing events was this weekend, but I left the hat behind because it was raining. So... expensive hat purchased, hasn't been worn yet. May be next year before it gets used.

Don't worry, I wore my top hat out for a Christchurch-colours mufti day at my school (I know, lawn ->off etc.), and that was the second time I wore it outdoors since purchasing it 5 years ago.

Where are your evil monocles?

Bennard's so evil, he's wearing two stuck together!

I finally got myself a new camera. Maybe not impulsive, but did occur this month

These on the other hand were a silly purchase, but I like em

The cost is what categorizes a car as a silly purchase, especially from a person like myself that feels cars aren't entirely necessary in the average urban lifestyle. But I do get what you mean, sorry.

What can I say? If 560hp of AWD with only two seats and no trunk doesn't strike you as even a little silly then you're not getting a check ride when it arrives

I live down the street. I think it's silly. When is *my* ride?

I just spent $360 in an 'adult store'. Good luck getting me to post pictures of what I bought, despite the fact that they eminently qualify as "silly purchases."

I mean, what else are you supposed to spend a healthy tax refund on?

Yeah I had been drooling about one ever since they came out, and I guess my original Drobo's performance was just not cutting it anymore.

I won't get to spend my money on something silly until the end of this year or early in the next

Jonman does his best to trickle down.

This summer! It arrives in June. I'll be putting a supercharger in it. After all, what everything needs is [Tim Allen]More Power[/Tim Allen] and an extra 200hp seems about right

I ordered this two days ago:

It's only silly if you bought White at the same time.
