Did you know they made a sparkling shiraz? Why didn't you tell me!?! I was making num-num sounds all afternoon and Eve.
I have to dash right now, but remind me to tell you about my soulful rendition of "Breaking Free" from our Wii High School Musical Karaoke tourney last night. Not a dry eye in the house, people. Boy, who knew pre-schoolers would be such crybabies when you kick their asses all over the place in a singing competition?
Merry, merry, y'all!

Or maybe it was just instant karma for tainting that last sweet post with talk of getting my cigar smoked by some randomness? Blowjob, blown into a ditch, nice twist there, Universe. Anyway, speaking of my taint.....
ADDED: Here's a little visual proof of my ditchity pursuits.I know, it doesn't look like much, but that's like the only few inches of my skin that was exposed. Freezing cold here, remember?

ADDED: OK, actually I'd also like a toothy blowjob from some hirsute daddy I haven't met yet.

Count your blessings, my lambs, and hug someone you love today.
Fuck me if these goddamned holidays don't make me maudlin every year!

I'm worth it, right? IT'S worth it. Right? Oh dear. I'm ridiculous.

When you can't run anymore, you crawl. And when you can't do that, you find someone to carry you.
I cried. AND we're back at my mood again.
Today, I am a grumpy bear.

And I was going to see the touring production of Sweeney Todd in Columbus this weekend. It's Sondheim people! There is no justice in the universe.
Being close and being clever
Ain't like being true
I don't need to,
I would never hide a thing from you,

The holidays getting you down? Here's your antidote. What can a video do? Oh, darling, your ennui doesn't have a prayer against these mostly blonde folks, some with sunglasses jauntily perched atop their heads. Or their ginormous leering snowman.

1. Watching this movie is as close as you'll get to reading a Cormac McCarthy novel without actually reading one. The language is precise and gorgeous, but if you're looking for tidy, this isn't your country, old man.
2. Even though it's McCarthy's voice, the Coen brothers' stamp is unmistakable.
3. Javier Bardem or Tommy Lee Jones, or possibly both, will be nominated for an Oscar, and deservedly so.
4. This movie contains some of the most suspenseful scenes I've experienced in a theater. Part of it is you learn early on that graphic violence will occur with no notice.
5. The other part is that Javier Bardem creates a screen villain for the ages in Anton Chigurh.
6. It's easily one of the best films I've seen this year, friend-o.
ADDED: David Mixner just released a list of his People of the Year. Yo, check DK out.
John Edwards? Brangelina? Nancy Pelosi? The Burmese monks? Not bad company, Brotha Dave.
ADDED: Ummm, can you say MULTIPLE GRAMMY NOMINEE? I thought that you could. Dave's "At the Movies" CD and his stirring take on "Over the Rainbow" were both nominated in the Pop Instrumental category. Huzzah!

Just two more days until the Koz Christmas Express blows into Ohio to bring some cheer to Cowlumbus and parts near. They are going to be at the gorgeous Palace Theater. You should come! We'll have some warm alcoholic beverage together at intermission if you do. Verily I say unto you, "There might be cinammon sticks!" And peace and joy and whatnot.
PS I just noticed that I'm the #2 hit when you search blogs for Dave Koz. Oh, it's ON!
The way my pants are fitting lately, I would have chosen famine over pestilence, but nobody asked.

So what do you think? About Kimberley and about my outfit, I mean.

Where was I? Oh, yeah, KOZ! If you've been around here much, you know I raved about the Dave Koz concert I enjoyed this summer at the Fraze Pavilion. OK, yes, I did gush a bit, but DK has so much energy on stage (see: frisky kick), and it might sound strange, but I swear it's like he's singing through the saxophone. If I may borrow a phrase from Tiffany "New York" Patterson, I was totally feelin' him. Plus, adorable!Right? He's making some bold choices with that suit which speaks to his temperament, I think. It also speaks to my pants. Fact! So, I'm seeing him again this weekend at his holiday concert tour stop in Columbus. Anyone up for stagedoor johnny-ing him with me? Sounds dirtier than it is, yo.So that means ALL WEEK I'll be plugging his tour, his CD, his radio show, and possibly even his website, all the while keeping a respectable distance, naturally.
Do you think this might score me a backstage pass or something?
I know he has fan clubs, but I wonder if there's one specifically targeting our tribe. Cuz I've totally got the perfect name: The Koz-mos. See what I did?
Dave Koz, y'all!
