I received ‘The Conformist’ & ‘1900’. Yeah!
Under the tree was David Thomson’s fat book, HAVE YOU SEEN …? And already I’m nodding my head in complete agreement at one moment, then pounding the table in utter disagreement the next. And a thousand films! So many, and yet so many missing …
I bought a similar can of candy drops for myself a couple of years ago. I now use it as a container for small change. No one who has seen my room gets the reference.
I got an external HD. Kind of film related, as I plan to store some movies on it.
I got some books I wanted, some DVDs I wanted, a new cardigan, a flannel shirt, some shoes that have soles made of used car tires,and a bedside carafe with a glass that fits on top. Oh, and some French vocabulary study sheet things. I have to learn French. Again. For the third time. And I never really learned it the first time. Merde!
I got Sidney Lumet’s film The Pawnbroker
Criterion and Janus Films shirts.
I got a Bible board game. Cause my family is in love with Jesus, right? no!
I suppose that’s what you get when you don’t ask for anything.
It was a banner fuckin’ year at the old Soybean family! I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me said, " Hey, smoke up Soybean! ". Actually, my father sent me a check. I bought “The Dark Knight” and “Down By Law”, because someone borrowed mine and never returned it and then claimed it was his. It’s never leaving my apartment again!!!
Wall-E bed set<3
Got a framed original “Hang Em High” lobby card, “The Burmese Harp”, and late Ozu eclipse. I was pretty stoked!
The new High and Low, Rhapsody in August, Walker and That Obscure Object of Desire.
Some slippers, which may not sound like much, but boy do I love me some slippers.
Smoke up, Soybean, indeed.
I really wanted a Janus t-shirt. I ordered one during the sale when they were listed as still available but when my DVDs shipped no shirts were listed. I emailed about it and was told they were out. Le sigh… I’ll try again this spring probably. hey, did I ever mention that my posts are fascinating? This one sure is.
in addition to the the stuff i put on the criterion for christmas thread i also received “the picture of dorian gray”, “dillinger” with warren oates, “the dark knight”, “mr. smith goes to washington”, “the pope of greenwich village”, the deluxe version of “don’t look back” and an incredibly cool book/dvd set about chicago architect louis sullivan. chris ware did the art for the slideshow on the dvd which includes some beautiful buildings from chicago from the 1880’s-90’s. i made out llike a bandit! seriously, my family were very good to me and all have excellent taste. i am blessed.
