Christmas 2014, Pt.9

Here’s a collection of some other cool loot I got for Christmas this year!


The Henry & Glenn books are ones I’ve always meant to get and never have, so these are my first two! They crack me up to no end. Truly some brilliant stuff.

I am inordinately proud of my new official Guiness ceramic mug. I’ve yet to pour a pint into it (oversiiiiight!!) but it looks to me like it’ll easily hold a full pint. Niiiice!

The Darth Vader and stormtrooper ceramic salt and pepper shakers are a hoot. I may join the Dark Side and put the salt in Darth Vader and the pepper in the stormtrooper, because that’s a pretty evil thing to do to people, right? Right! Haha.

I have been remiss as a big fan of Black Flag since it was 2014 and I was just getting this 1982 album for the first time now! There are 25 tracks on this CD, previously unreleased recordings of early songs with different singers before Henry Rollins joined the band in 1981. It’s gonna be sweet!

Goodnight Keith Moon is two things. First it’s an hilarious parody of the children’s classic storybook Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (a book that I have read to our kids a zillion times). The artwork and the wording of the story are a spot-on rendition. However, secondly, this is also a dark and morbid story involving Keith Moon’s corpse. Yeah. So, it’s by turns really freaking funny, and also a little sick!

Thanks to everyone for these gifts!

    Oh man!! I love the salt and pepper shakers! Too bad Jen would never want Vader on her dining room table or I’d want a set too! Just awesome.

    And Rollins? AWESOME.

      The shakers are awesome. We had ’em out for a test run with house guests last night, they were a hit!

      Why not have Vader on the table? Unless he’s been force-choking dinner guests again…

      Rollins is always awesome! Gay and living with Danzig? HILARIOUS! With satanist Hall & Oats living next door? Oh GEEZ…

    I’m so jealous of what you got for Christmas. I’ve wanted those Henry & Glenn books for a while now. Plus Goodnight Keith Moon sounds awesome!

      It was indeed a fantastic Christmas! The Henry & Glenn are hilarious, very recommended. Now I have these, I want the rest! The Moon book is pretty messed up. Funny but also not!
