Were all of our readers good boys and girls? Did you get everything you were hoping for from your Christmas wish lists? Now that the holiday is over, it’s time to show off that Christmas bounty!
Mrs. Z, family, friends, and Santa were all pretty good to me this year. On the home theater front, I got a bunch of sweet Blu-rays, including ‘Moon‘, ‘A Serious Man‘, ‘Fantasia‘, and ‘Ip Man‘. Perhaps best of all is the very impressive Criterion box set, ‘America Lost and Found: The BBS Story‘. That one’s going to take quite a while to dig through.
In other movie business, a friend gave me this very cool ‘2001’ Monolith action figure, which proudly boasts “Zero points of articulation!”
While Mrs. Z is not a gadget geek like me, I had to give her one gizmo for the living room TV. It’s the SRS Labs Volume Leveling Adaptor. This should help to correct those annoying swings in volume from one channel to the next (or from the program to the commercials) when she’s watching TV. OK, so maybe this one’s for my benefit as much as it is for hers, but I hope she’ll come to appreciate it in time. (Yes, I got her regular gifts that she’s more interested in, too.)
How about you? What goodies did you get or give?
