Christmas Loot

Woot! I had a really really good haul this year and I just want to thank everybody who contributed to making my Christmas a joyous one. Now, let's dive into what I got for Christmas.
  • The Wire: The Complete Series
  • A Georgio Armani tie.
  • Extras: The Complete Series
  • Socks and underwear (thanks, mom)
  • Watching The Watchmen by Dave Gibbons
  • The DC Vault
  • Grand Theft Auto IV
  • The Rat Pack Collection
What a terrific haul. But that's not all I got. I received a bunch of gift certificates, and the entire house went-a Boxing Day shopping. So what did I pick up?
  • Sony Blu-Ray Remote for the Playstation3
  • A second controller for the PS3
  • A hard plastic protector-case for the PSP
  • Fallout 3
  • LA Confidential (on Blu-Ray)
  • The Fly (on Blu-Ray) (for 15 bucks!)
  • The Godfather Trilogy (on Blu-Ray)
  • Live Free And Die Hard (on Blu-Ray)
  • The Given Day by Dennis Lehane
  • Just After Sunset by Stephen King
  • The Other by Thomas Tryon
What a fabulous haul.

What's even better is that my beloved g/f, who received 50 bones from my parents, went to this fancy-dan boutique and picked up a perfectly-fitting blazer, the one last in the store, for 50 bucks. The regular price? Six hundred and ninety five dollars. Let me type that again. Six hundred and ninety five dollars and she got it for 50 bones. What a ridiculous deal. My roomie also picked up an Xbox 360 and a bunch of games like Halo 3, so we've been playing video games non-stop since yesterday.

It's been a great holiday. Now, I'm back to work today....

You might enjoy this Mr. Media podcast interview with Dave Gibbons, co-creator and artist of Watchmen, as he discusses the Warner Bros./Fox dispute, being on the set during production, and what he thinks of the trailer and the rough cut he saw of Watchmen. He also talks about the possibility of working with Frank Miller and the message he took to Alan Moore from Will Eisner. Here's the link!
