Happy X-Mas (Apocalypse is Over)

Well ladies and germs, we have survived the so-called end of the world.  Gotta admit, pretty big let down.  I was promised a rapture-like start to my week-end, and what did we get?  Nothing dammit, nothing.  Okay, so perhaps the whole birds and snakes and aeroplanes thing (and those who know, get my meaning here) would not have been the best way to spend the week-end - you know, dying, nothingness, all that wouldbe jazz - but still, maybe at least a little bit of scary stuff.  Something to make it a memorable fake apocalypse.  Maybe all cable, satellite, phone and online services should have went down for a few minutes on Friday.  Tell me that wouldn't have scared the bejeezus out of some people.  But I digress.  This is supposed to be a Christmas post after all, and not some riff on the apocalypse, or lack there of - even if my blatantly ripped off post title says otherwise. Then again, it does say the apocalypse is over, so....but, again, I digress.  And anyway, all I really wanted to say was, thank you to everyone out there that has supported me and this site (and all the other cyber doodads that I doodad at) through the years.  I may not be loaded with the amount of fans and readers that some of my better known critical compatriots are, but the ones do have, are pretty darn special.  Aw shucks.  Anyway, thanx to all, and here is wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas, or a Merry Kwanzaa, a Happy Hanukkah, a mighty Festivus (oh those feats of strength), or even a festive Life Day (again, nerd reference).  Whatever it be, have a safe and happy one.  I will be back after Christmas, with brand new reviews of films like Django Unchained, Jack Reacher and Les Miserables - not to mention my Top Ten (or maybe eleven) of 2012.  After that, comes 2013, and a whole lot of fun stuff indeed, including, but certainly not limited to, a slew of brand spankin' new Battle Royales, so many reviews it'll make your head spin, a delving into the films of Ingmar Bergman, and my very own Top 1000 Films List.  See ya on the flipside folks.  Merry Merry and Ho Ho Ho.


For more pics like the one above, which incidentally, is America's Sweetheart, Miss Mary Pickford, putting up some 1922ish holiday cheer, go on over to my Tumblr. site, Random Fraudish Monkeyshines (hows that for a name!?), and browse through my ever-growing selection of all the great classic Hollywood nick-nacks that the world wide web has to offer.
