Got my dad a pair of Headphones, my sister that 2-disc edition of Snow White, my brother Assassins Creed 2, and my mom a Candle from Yankee candle.

I'll, hopefully, be getting a M-Audio FastTrack Pro recording interface.

Well I got my missus a Samsung 6 series LCD TV, it was on special (and we needed a new TV) and I did not have the BALLS to get a vacum cleaner!!!! hehe......and I had vouchers from my job to add for it. My little one got so muchs**t in Disneyland that she owes me money.....

I got alot of stuff in the states for xmas.....Seiko Arctura Watch, Pair of Oakley Polaroid Sunglasses, Win 7, L4D2, Braun 7 Series Razor (had the 5 series but the 7 is UBER KOOL with pulsonic action) I treated myself to a set of sennheiser PC350's and a ATi 5970 (its soooo hard to be a parent so this is my reward)

Might have another child to justify and i7 rig....LMFAO.

Looking forward to an absolute monster gaming session over the Xmas, I was so drunk last night playing L4D2 that I nearly strangled myself as I taught I was getting attacked by a SMOKER...turns out the new lead of my headset was caught in my top....ffs!

-Guitar World Mag

-M-Audio FastTrack USB (had one before, but it was dad's...I was just bumming it from him). Strangely enough, it's Black. It definitely looks better than the original silver/bronze color.

-Parents got me a computer chair, but I don't need it. Going to send it back and maybe get a PS3. I'm NOT getting a 360, so don't try to convince me.

-$220 cash, total.

Some other cheap goodies as well....and some chocolate which I'll mostly give away.

Noticed somebody mentioned the fast track. I would just dwld the drivers from the site. I recommend [Native Instruments] Guitar Rig 3/4 for guitar, and I had most luck with [IK Multimedia] Ampeg SVX for bass. Guitar Rig does bass somewhat decent, but it lacks models, as there is only one. On the other hand, SVX lacks in gain/effects quality....but provides great sound models.

Wow, I just was looking up fasttracks, and they apparently revised them. I have the "old" model.

Not many new features, but I would like to have the boosted output level.

Still, the old models are reliable, and do the job just fine....I think they are cheaper too. I'm definitely keeping it.
