This year for my assignment I wrote "Look and Listen," a "Rear Window" story that asks how those events looked for Miss Lonelyhearts and the Songwriter. It was a fandom I'd never have thought to offer if I hadn't seen it in the requests, but just the idea delighted me. What better movie to reverse perspective on, right? Anyway, I had a blast with it, AND also learned what I think is the ultimate Christmas trivia of all time regarding "Rear Window" -- the Songwriter? The guy up there struggling to write a tune while murder and mayhem is going on around him? Is the guy who wrote, recorded and sang (all voices!) on ... wait for it ... "The Chipmunk Song." "Christmas, Christmas, time is here, time for toys and time for cheer -- " Yes! That's him! What a resume, right? The movie wouldn't be the same if THAT were the song he was composing all the while.

Also as a treat I wrote "Pugs With Michael Fassbender, or, the Importance of Perspective," for "Michael Fassbender With Pugs," obviously. I have little to say about Michael Fassbender or Tumblr, but quite a lot to say about pugs. But since I ended up stepping on the assigned Yulegoat's toes, I wish I'd just waited on this one -- but at least there is more pugfic.

Ended up not going out last night -- I just felt completely thrashed. I'm slightly sniffly and under the weather, but I think yesterday that combined with cramps and being generally run-down anyway to just fell me. So I spent NYE sneezing on the couch and watching "Hellboy." Hardly one for the record books, but OTOH, I'd forgotten just how much I enjoyed "Hellboy."
