What's your dream rock and roll nostalgia gift?

The two giant eyeballs that appear on the cover of Pink Floyd’s Pulse were auctioned off for Floyd guitarist David Gilmour’s charity, Crisis, yesterday. Something’s always getting auctioned off in England, and the report is always in the top three stories on BBC.com, and I never pay attention. This one actually has me jealous. How cool would it be to have these puppies in your house? Ha! What rock prop have you always coveted? For me, it’s the bulbous, colorful "ELO" disc that an Aladdin-esque character attempts to steal at the beginning of the video for "Confusion." I don’t know what that thing is, but I want it, if only to lord it over that dude. WTF is going on there? (See song title.)

Anyway, what about you? And if you don’t have thousands to spend on pieces of pop-culture nostalgia, consider buying a Festivus pole — a simple construction of glass, aluminum, and dirty rotten paganism priced at just $38 — for the Seinfeld fan in your life. Come to think of it, they should start selling modified versions of those things at head shops. What? Nothing. See ya.

    This “Mary” would buy the underwear Ricky Martin wore while doing the Shake Your Bon Bon video; and for a couple of more pennies those silver tight pants that cupped his “bon bon” oh so nicely ; )

    a 1-time reunion of ABBA would be my ultimate wish…but as a close second I’d covet the outfits they wore (the painted animal mini-dresses) or Bjorn’s star shaped guitar in Mamma Mia!!!

    Sinead’s ripped up pieces of the pope.

    I wouldn’t mind having a pair of Debbie Harry’s panties.

    Every holiday season, we celebrate Festivus on Dec. 19 or 20. We do this because my dad’s side of the family takes off for Puerto Rico every Christmas. So we celebrate with them earlier… but why call it Christmas when you can call it Festivus. FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US!

    “dirty rotten paganism”?? WTF! Remind me to never again read any more of the discriminatory, yet incredibly dull, blatherings of Annie Barrett.

    “Something’s always getting auctioned off in England…”
    Ha, ha. Never thought about it, but that really does seem true.

    I don’t know if this counts but I’ve always wanted the bus and the studebaker from the Muppet Movie, they were painted by the Electric Mayhem band and were funky and psychedelic.

    I would love it if Journey would finally get some band integrity.
