Wish Lists without Frontiers

I caught Peter Gabriel live for the first time this past Saturday. I tell you what, that boy knows how to put on a show. Good music, well performed, actual engagement with the audience ... and eye candy. Videos, lighting, a giant (12' diameter) inflatible plastic ball he rolled around inside while performing and/or trying to crush his lead guitarist. And, not one but two Segways.

Which got me thinkin' ... what could possibly be on the Amazon wish list of a man who already owns two Segways? (OK, maybe one was his, and the other was his daughter's. Maybe.) So, I check it out.

Can the really Peter Gabriel step forward? Are you into Pokemon and Battlezone 64, or working on your Yu Gi Oh figure collection? Or perhaps you're too ashamed to walk into a Virgin Megastore and pick up Godsmack or Papa Roach, and expect a friend to do it instead? Do you secretly want to retire and do some serious gardening?

And, Peter, fill in a shipping address already! Jeez!
