the best christmas present i got was the new castelvania game for xbox.
the worst christmas present i got was the death of james brown.
as a public service request, i am asking for whoever i loaned my copy of Tim Power's trilogy Last Call, Expiration Date and Earthquake Weather to please step forward and let me know. millefeuille48 got that trio for me, and when i went looking for them last night, i could not find them. i recall having a deep conversation with someone about it, but ff knows who. murnkay, was it you?
it is funny - my persistent memory of james brown is from the now-defunked BMW film "Beat the Devil", which i just watched with wangch61 and hoolifan a week or so ago.
