A Christmas Stoolie

December 25, 2010

If I had to estimate, I’d say that I’ve seen “A Christmas Story” about a jillion times. I love it. Can’t get enough of it. When TBS breaks out the 24-hour marathon, I’ll sit through about half of it.

Good times.

When I rewatch a movie, I think it’s really cool when I pick up on things I hadn’t noticed before. As an example, for the first time tonight, I noticed that every light in the house was on when Ralphie’s mom turned off the leg lamp to save electricity. Hilarious.

However, sometimes you notice something that can sour you on a character.



Adventures In Clay: The Creation of Snowman Senor Chang

December 22, 2010

Note: We have a rule in the Holmes household that any gift that is meant to be enjoyed during Christmas should be given before Christmas. So don’t worry, this blog post isn’t spoiling my alliance partner’s holiday gift. Not that she reads my blog anyways…

“Community” is my new jam. It’s the show I watch on Thursday night, then put on again later that night while I’m writing. The alliance partner loves it too. In fact, after the claymation episode a few weeks ago (‘Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas’) she could not stop laughing at the sight of Senor Chang (Ken Jeong) in claymation form.

So I decided to make her a Snowman Chang of her own.


‘Elf’ Sits on a Throne of Lies

December 17, 2010

Dude, I loves me some Christmas movies. Whether it’s Randy freaking out over his new zepplin or Clark W. Griswold talking about his Yule log, I’m into it.

And I’d love to induct Will Ferrell’s ‘Elf’ into my playlist of must-watch flicks, but it’s just too unbelievable for me to truly support.

Yeah yeah, it’s a movie about a human child that’s raised by elves in the North Pole…how realistic can it be? Well, my problem isn’t with the main plot.
