That's not what the Death card means

I should have posted this a month ago, but I didn't.

If you don't know what I'd like for Christmas, it's okay. You don't have to get me anything. But if the prospect of that is more horrible to you than the alternative, here are some notions:

_The Years of Rice and Salt_, by Kim Stanley Robinson. Ideally, the oversized paperback edition.

_Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell_, by some author I can't think of right now.

Akira Kurosawa's _Seven Samurai_ on DVD. Or possibly the Kurosawa greatest hits boxed set if the price is reasonable. I think it's got Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Hidden Fortress and one other film. Ran?

Kevin Smith on DVD, most especially _Chasing Amy_. Mallrats and Dogma, sure. The three "Evenings With Kevin Smith." Probably not "Jersey Girl." I already own both Clerks and Clerks 2, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

_Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead_ on DVD.

The first trade paperback volume of "The Incredible Herc(ules)", "Agents of ATLAS", or "Captain Britain and MI13".

Feel free to consult me directly if none of the above suggestions holds any water with you. Feel free to share suggestions of your own for what you would like to receive this holiday season, or network same.

This has been a test of the Procrastinated Holiday Alert System. This is only a test.
