The End of the holiday season

Wow, this holiday season went by fast. Tomorrow is New Year's Day with all the traditional great sporting events -- outdoor NHL hockey at Wrigley Field, and the Don Larson perfect game on the debuting MLB.TV network. Sunshine is predicted for Pasadena's Rose Parade & Bowl so more snowed-in people will pack up and move to Southern California. Only difference is this year those people will be from Seattle.

Drive carefully tonight.

And I leave you with my favorite picture of the holiday season.

GREAT picture! I see a Mel Brooks Christmas Special in the making!

"A Very Hitler Christmas."

Adolf, open the package from Tom Cruise first.

I saw Tom Cruise, in a promo interview for VALKYRIE, say "It's not a World War II movie, it's a suspense thriller."

1. It's NOT a World War II movie? Did he set it in The Civil War? The Crusades? It's a movie set in Hitler's high command during World War II. How can that NOT be a World War II movie?

2. How can it be a suspense thriller? We go in knowing the plan failed and they were all executed. Hell, it's the promise of seeing Tom Cruise executed that is selling the tickets.

Tom Cruise executed! Happy New Year!

Cheers darlings.

The suspense if in wondering what Tom Cruise gets to grin about.

Happy New Year to all.

reminds me of that Seinfeld episode when George meets Fidel Castro.. "If I wasn't a dictator, I wouldn't have been able to get away with that!"

Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg enters.

Stauffenberg (VO)

"Doop de doop de doop....What a great Christmas party. That Himmler's a hoot! It's true what they say - you don't own beer you only rent it. Hey! WTF!? Hitler is in my seat! Laugh it up fuhrer boy! I betcha a bomb under that table would wipe that stupid smile off your stupid face...wait a minute...a BOMB under the table..."

...and so the seed for Operation Valkyrie was planted.

Love the photo! I'll be humming Springtime for Hitler all day!

Happy New Year all.

Even worse is when Hitler looks up at you, grins, and says "I've annexed YOUR Sudetenland, hope that's okay."

P.S. My WVW is "rewritin" which is the script disagreement that kicked off the whole Hatfield vs. McCoy thing.
