Non-Christmas Christmas

Here it is. It’s THAT time of year again. Purportedly, the most wonderful time of the year. I am usually told repeatedly in song by a bearded old guy [no not that one] to have a cup of cheer.

It’s during this time of year that normally people with their own unique tastes in music will suddenly fall prey to the most bland, vanilla, outdated, and otherwise completely irrelevant to their own experience music. “Where’s the Tylenol?!”

And the movies. Don’t get me started. Well, since I’m writing a blog about it, I guess do go ahead and get me started. Some are okay. Others just downright annoy the shit out of me. Pretty much anything in black and white or on a channel with Hallmark or Lifetime in the title.

Well, not in this house, baby! At least not while my wife has the remote. Turn off that music. Switch the channel, or better yet, turn on the blu-ray and put one of these on.

Yes, I’m talking about my top four Non-Christmas Christmas movies. There are other “honorable mentions” of course: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, L.A. Confidential, Long Kiss Goodnight, but these are the four that I am most likely to watch. They’re sorta like something salty after all that syrupy sugar I am fed on a daily basis about this time of year.

The most wonderful time of the year.

Yeah, right.

Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out

Take it for what it is.

You’re Welcome.
