NOOOBODY OUGHTA BE…DARKO FOR CHRISTMAS

  • That Deftones CD that has their cover of the Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” on it. It’s darker.
  • Gift card to The Black Angel. I don’t care for how much. Whatever. Like it matters.
  • Johnny the Homicidal Maniac: Director’s Cut. Right, like you get why it’s cool. So lame.# Hangover on DVD.
  • Admission ticket to Disneyland Paris for when I get back to Europe. “Why?” You wouldn’t understand.

Devine’s got the Christmas NBA blog post on lockdown.

I’ve done campy Christmas posts in the past. I’m not going to this year. But if I was, I’d want to be like Devine.

Also, I don’t know how I’m going to live with knowing Darko’s gone. I mean, I know he’s already gone, we might as well speak about him in the past tense. But to leave America with such bitter feelings about the peak of your profession. Sad.
