Christmas List

I’ve already had some inquiries into what I would like for Christmas, so I thought I’d start my list. I’ll add to it over time. Here are some things I would like:

Anything at all by Lynda Barry (books, framed art, t-shirts, mugs, anything), except Cruddy, which I already have. I am especially jonesing for the book One! Thousand! Demons! Anything obscure is a plus.

Mashimaro/San-X/assorted Nipponalia car accessories, blue neon car ornaments, or a license plate bracket that says “WEBLOGGERS/ DO IT AT WORK”. (Yes, I am trying to pimp out my car. No bumper stickers, please.)

Subscriptions: Advertising Age, Creative, American Demographics; The Nation, CounterPunch, Multinational Monitor; DoubleTake.

A bird feeder of some low platform type that I can attach to my windowsill (as opposed to attching it to my window, a post, a tree, etc.)

Socks. Not kidding. Funky and/or wool is ideal. I don’t wear tights so much anymore but I am doing the over-the-knee/thigh-high thing a lot lately.

A queen-sized duvet. (No cover, I’m making one myself.)

Media: Mini-DV tapes, minidiscs, blank CDs, and camera film.

Albums: anything by King Chango, Los Amigos Invisibles, Los de Abajo (except Cybertropic Chilango Power), or Nortec Collective; They Might Be Giants’ kids album (called No!); Squirrel Nut Zippers’ Bedlam Ballroom or their first album.

DVDs: Pootie Tang, UHF, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind.

    Unfortunately, no DVDs of any region exist for Nausicaa yet, unless you count slimy bootlegs.

    By the way, if you’re looking for slimy Nausicaa bootlegs, I can tell you that I saw them in at least two DVD stores in Chinatown today, one in Kong Man Center on Bowery between Hester and Canal and one in a store on the corner of Bowery and Canal (151 Canal).

    I lied, of course. There is no DVD store at Kong Man Center, and the one I was thinking of is actually on the other side of Hester. So. 99 Bowery, and 151 Canal.
