glasses

So my youngest got me these simple things. They clip on my glasses. They came in a case and when I first looked at em I said “why would cheap clip on sunglasses come in a case?”

Well as it turns out they are not cheap clip on sunglasses. They help people who can’t see some colors see them. In case you can’t see, there is supposed to be a smile in that pic. I can’t see it, can you?

Anyway for the first time in my life I can see red and green. It’s amazing. I don’t have the words to describe it well but I get more why we like Christmas. It’s kinda of prettier than I thought it was, and I did the Crap Tree for 20 years not knowing how good it really looked.

A Bleak Christmas Indeed December 10, 2018

As you all know, I’m all about the metrics, i.e., measurements that tell you how well something is doing. And for Christmas, there’s one key metric I use year after year:

Godzilla ornaments

You’ve got to ask yourself: “How much Godzilla can I shoehorn into my Christmas?”

Unfortunately, with the discontinuation of the annual Godzilla ornament release (WTH Hallmark/Carlton?) the Christmas spirit has taken a blow from which it may never recover.

Yes, friends, we’re going to have to live with the collection from 2005 – 2017, which is shown in my crappy photo below:

Godzillas 2018
Try to have a great Christmas anyway.

Godzilla Christmas, 2016 December 24, 2016

It’s almost unavoidable. When you’re caught up in the hubbub of shopping, cooking, cleaning, and worshiping in your preferred way, it’s easy to forget that every year Carleton releases a commemorative Godzilla ornament. But I never forget, because Godzilla, with his atomic breath and city-destroying habits, reminds you to celebrate life amid the tragedy and suffering we wade through all year.

…plus they make really cool noises.

So please to enjoy the Godzilla family (together with last year’s King Ghidorah):

Godzilla Shin, featuring the biggest Godzilla everrrrrrr, is showing at select theaters from 10/11 to 10/18.

If you don’t live near one of those theaters, move closer to one of those theaters.

You’ve got two weeks.

Godzilla Resurgence was released last month in Japan, and may be released in the US later this year. The movie prompted one Noger Chen to put together a comparison of all the Godzillas since 1954.

Have a slice of awesome:

You’ll note that this year’s version is more than 10 meters taller than the 2014 version, which is almost 8% more atomic goodness than ever before.

Grossly Premature Christmas Ornament Fun September 29, 2015

I normally refuse to blog about Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but CNET made me violate my principles with this image:

kirkspock

Yep, that’s the scene from the end of Wrath of Khan, where Spock sacrifices himself for “the many.” In fact, that’s the name of the ornament: The Needs of the Many Ornament.

While I’m on the subject, the 2015 Godzilla ornament isn’t too impressive:

But check out King Ghidorah!!

Oh yeah.

It’s always nice to see Dave’s Crap Tree post kicking off the Christmas season. This year we had our daughter read it out loud to the family. She’s not quite 12, so she’s not even allowed to say “crap,” but I think the sentiment rang true despite her substitution of “carp.” And so a new tradition is born.

But in our household we have a tradition that is just as old, and just as revered, as the annual appearance of Dave’s cri de coeur. And that tradition, of course, is acquiring and proudly displaying the latest Godzilla ornament from Carlton.

Yes, every Christmas since 2005 Carlton has released a new Godzilla ornament, each with its own sound. We missed the first year (an ornament I recently saw listed on eBay for $150), but have kept up ever since. So this year, allow me to introduce to you Godzilla 2011: Noshing on a Lighthouse:

Yeah, I know my photography sucks. But anyway, here’s the family, starting with Godzilla 2006 in the upper left:

Oh yeah – it’s Christmas!!!
