What does everyone want?

Here's hoping 2011 is better than 2010. Or I can find some funding.
Until then I'll keep dreaming of all those nifty cameras and lights I'd love to have, and of the day when I can worry about money only sometimes instead of all the time!
What about you guys?

Seriously though; this year I want to dust off this 8mm camera I got off of e-Bay and test it out. Get back to shooting stills when I have the time and it's warmer out. Get back to shooting regularly once things pick up abit (normally marchish- here.) And eventually I've been meaning to do some side-by-sides for myself between some D Cinema cameras and film stocks and for kicks my XDCam and a 7D or whatever.
Also I am contemplating trying to make my own beer, and learning some "carpentry," meaning I get the idea and the just of it, but I want to try to build something.... I got ragged on for my fish-tank... but hell, maybe I'll build a new fish tank stand...
I'm getting simpler these days I suppose.

And if we're talking oodles and gobs of money, I'd also pay all the studios to strikes a new projection print of all of their existing 70mm films, and get a few theatres in my area and around the country retrofitted with Norelco DP70s, and get the prints circulating again.
Sigh. Money is wasted on those who have it plenty of it.

I work at my college maintaining the equipment. The way students treat gear kills me. We have a few xl2's, and the viewfinders are all freaked up these days. Its getting old. Im young enough to travel whereever filmmaking brings me, and Im just sitting around wishing.
I also want experience working with film. Ive never shot anything on film, or worked on anything with film. I wish my school offered me ANYTHING Film related.
The other stuff isnt so important these days, I could say I want an Ex3 or some new lenses, but I really dont need them. I just want some interesting projects to be a part of.

That and to get onto the NFTS MA in Cinematography in London.
Give me these 3 things, and i'd be as happy as that guy called Larry.
