Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Woot for the Loot
I didn't get a lot of presents this year, but they were especially good ones. The big gift was Unseen Cinema - Early American Avant Garde Film 1894-1941, a massive 7 DVD collection, which I am dying to dip into. But I was also delighted with the collection of Snoopy and Woodstock cartoons Skylar picked out, the model of a 1967 Shelby GT Mustang, and the Rudolph-the-Red-Nosed-Reindeer back massager. I spent hours laughing at Sky Maul, which distills the absurdity of the Sky Mall catalogue into something sublime. And I love the shirt I'm wearing, which would be awesome no matter where it came from, but is even better because it comes from chrisglass:

I got mine because I won't stop making random statements involving "Nietzsche," whose visage appears in the top right corner of the T-shirt design. But there are plenty of other reasons to celebrate a diverse group of men wearing facial hair. Or so I've been told. And there are certainly many reasons to direct your business the way of Chris and his friends.

I keep meaning to buy myself Sky Maul because I will shamelessly admit to an addiction to the Sky Mall catalog.

I'm a big Sky Mall reader myself. Kim gets sick of me showing her gadgets. That's why I got the gift, though, so I'm not complaining. . . :-)

Sky Maul is hysterical.

YAY! So glad it appears to fit proper... and it looks so good with that Arizona sun on it.

Ah, sun.

Those American Apparel shirts are all a little clingy. But I've lost some weight, so they look better on me than they used to. And I love the way they feel.

Arizona sun does look good, especially this time of year. The state has some major drawbacks, but the light is always nice and often superlative.

In other news, I'm going to Louisville again in late February. You're in Dayton now, right?

Yep. In Dayton. Not terribly far from Lville. Keep me apprised.

And if you need a different size, drop another comment.

Oh, no. It's the right size. I just have too much blubber. Less than before, though!

I'll let you know RE: L'ville.
