Christmas Unwrapped

Well, I’m back in Cleveland af­ter a few days in Indiana. Three Christmas gifts I’m ex­cit­ed about in­clude my new sweet-ass pots and pans set, my iron­ing board, and my sub­scrip­tion to Paste [it comes with a comp CD every month!]

The top Christmas mo­ment was on Boxing Day when I came in­to the fam­i­ly room dur­ing the af­ter­noon to find my mom, my aunt and my un­cle all fast asleep and Matlock on the tele­vi­sion.

Oh yeah, in hon­or of James Brown’s pass­ing here’s a short film called Beat the Devil star­ring him and di­rect­ed by Tony Scott. About the on­ly place you’re go­ing to find this film is on YouTube un­less you man­age to stum­ble across one of the lim­it­ed re­lease BMW Films DVDs. The rest of the DVD is good too, all shorts by great di­rec­tors.
