What I Got For Christmas



I'm back -- and just in time for Premier perks to end. Why don't I end this blog (for now, at least) on a happy note?


I had a fantastic Christmas, not least because my brothers and I finally have our own albums! On Christmas Eve, our uncle supplied us with one each: I got The Fray by The Fray, my younger brother got Waking Up by OneRepublic, and my youngest brother got Greatest Hits by Bon Jovi; the next day, I found in my stocking Vice Verses by Switchfoot, my younger brother found The Resistance by Muse, and my youngest brother found Mylo Xyloto by Coldplay. All-in-all, 'twas a fantastic musical haul, I'd say.


What follows is a list of gifts we stole from were given by our parents, relatives, and -- you guessed it -- Santa Claus.


For me:


-Two albums: The Fray by The Fray and Vice Verses by Switchfoot

-New headphones

-Two Hero Factory 4.0 sets: Rocka and Jawblade

-A card game: Clue: Suspect

-A poster featuring artwork of stormtroopers

-A laptop bag

-Learn to Play the Guitar: A Step-by-Step Guide (once my mom's old guitar is tuned, I'll find this guide very handy)

-The Curious Boy's Book of Exploration

-The Oxford Desk Dictionary and Thesaurus, Second Edition

-A drum practice pad



For my brothers and me:


-A new keyboard (my old one's B4 key is broken)

-A small Amazon Kindle

-Two computer strategy games: Geniu$ and Ageod's American Civil War, 1861-1865: The Blue and the Gray

-Four Xbox 360 games: Sonic the Hedgehog, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Blazing Angles, and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection

-Two Kinect games: Kinect Sports: Season 2 and Powerup

-A Lego board game: Ramses Pyramid

-Star Wars: The Clone Wars wall stickers

-A beginner drum instruction book

-Fushigi ball (a ball you can manipulate so it appears to float; it's actually pretty fun)

-A sheet music stand

-One movie ticket voucher(?) each


Honorable mentions (A.K.A. some of my brothers' gifts):


-Hero Factory 2.0 sets: Fire Lord, Xplode, and Stormer 2.0

-Hero Factory 4.0 sets: Surge and Evo

-Greatest Hits by Bon Jovi, Waking Up by OneRepublic, Mylo Xyloto by Coldplay, and The Resistance by Muse


I hope everyone else had a fantastic Christmas and will have a fantastic New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. This is Legolover-361, signing off for the last (and first :P) time on this blog.

Hey, I was told if you can play guitar you could have a very good chance at playing a piano.


Maybe one day you'll be a famous musician.


Hey, you got the same amount of chance as everybody. :shrugs:

To become a famous musician, I would need five things:


1. Piano mastery

2. Guitar mastery

3. A good singing voice

4. Good songwriting talent

5. An inordinate amount of luck


At this point, the possibility of 3 coming true is fifty-fifty. 4 is more attainable, and perhaps 1 and 2, too. I'll have to wait and see about 5. And a bonus would be finding fellow musicians with which to form a band.
