Naturally, I meant to write during vacation, but, you know, the best intentions… and family always seems to take up much more time than planned (how do they do that?). I have just lots of really brilliant (or, okay, “why not pass the time and read it?” interesting) things to say, of course, about the holidays, and movies, and holiday movies, and, um, the sociopolitical struggles inherant in media portrayals of festive interactions between genetically linked members of the human race. Sigh, gotta love college-bred gibberish. But those’ll just have to wait until after the holidays. Instead, I’ll leave you with this. It’s a Blockbuster commercial – because what are the holidays about but cynical commercialism? And lots and lots (and lots) of movies?
See you in January!
