A holographic cypher, American money is insecure

I have a henley shirt that I got in my Sophomore year of high school. It's stretched to hell and full of holes, but I love it.

What instrument do you wish you could be more than great at?

Diatribe, Hate Dept, Acumen Nation, Chemlab.

Play video games, watch The Price is Right, sleep a lot.
In other news, got the TV delivered and the sectional ordered. I may or may not have to buy the dresser, that'll be determined tonight. Parents are being dumb about the bedframe, I think I jumped the gun in asking for a birthday present so soon. Nightstands and papasan chair are available any time, lamps are going to be carried over from the existing apartment, media rack and barstools are on hold.
Found out the Victrola was a dud and isn't worth much, so that's now $50 u-haul-it. It's still a great conversation piece for any music lover. TV is spoken for, couch is still unconfirmed, need a buyer for the entertainment center ($75 u-haul-it) and bedrame/dresser (fuck, I don't care, make an offer). Found a set of home theater speakers from NHT that's affordable and critically acclaimed, and I can pre-listen at my local NHT dealer. Finding a second-hand Arcam isn't going to be easy. I only found one AVR200 for sale, and it's the British model and may not be 110v compatible. International shipping would be a bitch, too. Now, I have to switch the utilities over to my name (whoops, forgot to do that, I've technically had the apartment for 11 days now).
