      Had it for years, and still have it

      It is nothing too fancy. But if you just need a Midi Controller that plays well, it is all you need.

      By nothing to fancy I mean there are no sliders or buttons on it you can use to send Midi data (except for the piano keys, obviously >.< and program/bank change)
      So, the keys are weighted hammer action keys. Which means, if you play softly you'll get a softer sound and if you play harder.. just like an acoustic piano with 7 velocity curves.
      The feeling of playing it is very good aswel though the keys are not as heavy as a grand but on the other hand, it's not a grand.. more like an upright.

      There is a mod and pitch wheel, speaks for itself. Power adapter is included but the sustain and volume pedal ain't.

      It's big, which is normal because of the number of keys. But, logically thinking it's heavy aswel. Way too heavy actually so if you have to drag it around it's not really as fun as playing it. (around 24kg or so)

      They are tough. If you'd open it up, like I once did after I poured some coke in it, you'd see it's actually quite empty. It's mainly metal for the weight of the keys and a few wires and few other electronical part thingies.
      When I poured coke into it, 8 keys stopped working. After I cleaned it out, 5 of the 8 worked again leaving the 3 others dead.
      (That's a good thing, trust me)

      There is no USB connection so you do need a Midi interface if you want to use it on your computer. (but those things are cheap anyway)

      This is the console that you can just play on with anyone

      I preordered my WII before it was even known as WII, before it was even known to have these amazing new controller features and I was able to get it one day before official release ;P
      Anyhow, if you want good graphics you should stick with your computer. But that just counts for every console though the X360 and PS3 are better in graphics then WII. The WII will not really give you graphics that will amaze you though it is not as bad as some people might say it is. The graphics are better than the Gamecube even though some people claim both consoles have the same gfx processor, not true! So, compared to the other 2 big consoles on the market, this is my favourite because the gameplay is really fun. Graphics doesn't beat gameplay (and price) and that is what Nintendo did here, and where the other console manufacturers go wrong.

        This bass guitar is more worth then for what it sells

        The title actually is not correct. This is not a regular "Fender Squier P-Bass" but it's a "Fender Squier P-Bass Special Edition". It's just the same as the Standard P-Bass but in different colours. I really like the black headstock though!
        The bass plays smoothly, the P-bass neck is nice n thin (bit thinner than an original standard bass guitar neck) but still has the P-sound or J-sound (Depends on your pick up configuration). For it's price, the bass guitar sounds pretty good but Squier is generally a good brand, unlike the cheaper ones from the Fender brand. There are 3 pots on it in total, 2 pots for the volume of the 2 coils and the other one adjusts the sound (or treble or however you say that). The bass guitar is strong. I didn't test how strong it was but I just abuse it frequently and it never broke down or anything.

          Second guitar I ever bought, I still have it, and that means something

          Well, It's Ibanez... If you buy a Fender for that amount of cash, you're guitar will never be as good as an Ibanez of that price. It's one of the things Ibanez is known for and they do it again with this guitar. For starters, it stays in tune very well, even using the flying bridge without locking it, it still stays in tune for quite some time. The flying bridge speaks for itself, and you can still lock it at the back if you want (by placing a piece of wood or something alike between the flying bridge and the guitar body at the back of the guitar). I personally locked it with with an empty lighter and some cardboard cus I didn't have any wood or so atm of locking it. The guitar plays like a charm, the Wizard neck plays very smoothly (better than Wizard necks from a price range under this one tbh). The sound, well I don't really use the neck humbucker. The bridge humbucker sounds really nice, add some distortion for your rock/metal stuff. The single coil in the middle has some noise, that's the downpart but you can split your humbuckers into single coils!

          If I can' afford these anymore, I'll just stop smoking

          These ciggies are the best. I actually started smoking L&M light but after tasting these not that much later I kinda got stuck with it. Regular L&M gives me headaches even after smoking one (No, it's not the booze, lol) The amount of nicotine is just about how I want it to be and still smokes smoothly enough. Alot of people say this tastes the same as the brand 'Next' but nothing could be further from the truth. Next tastes nothing like this, Next actually tastes like shit :P. But what do you expect with cheap cigarettes, that's why these ones are as expensive as they are I guess.
          They have it in rolling tabacco aswel but the countries they sell it is quite limited. I've seen it in France, but not in like Spain, UK, Belgium, Japan,.. or any other country I've been to. So if you want a good cigarette, smoke these.

            Pretty good PDA, works like any other one.

            This is my first PDA ever so I cannot really compare it to another one except the GPS my brother used to use. This one is really fun with the WIFI and all, especially if you install Opera on it so you can browse regular HTML websites. The battery lasts quite a long time, it never died on my when I was using it as an MP3 player before. The minor thing is, it sometimes freezes for a while (after using Windows Live) so sometimes I have to wait a few minutes and if that doesn't help I even have to do a soft reset. Which means you have to wait again because of the annoying screens you get when you reset the device xD
            But on the whole, it does what it's supposed to do and it came with a pouch so that's always handy. I would buy it again if it got hit by a car.
