Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Not a typo.  Because the schedule for a holiday visit from our daughter Nechama and her wife Kat worked out to this weekend instead of next, we’re saying What The Heck? Why Not? and throwing an installment of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning in advance.  We are having Christmas Phase 1… Christmas Part 1… Early Christmas… We don’t yet have a settled name for it.  We’ll come up with something.

One of the best things about Christmas is, how flexible it is.  Every year you can adjust your celebrations to the circumstance and your own desires.

As holidays go, Christmas is the willow, not the oak.


This is a great old(-ish) blues standard by Taj Mahal.

But the reason you thought, That sounds familiar…, is a little movie you may have seen used it as the opening scene soundtrack.


Really That Good

There’s a YouTube series by MovieBob called Really That Good, in which he justifies the praise we heap upon certain movies with a detailed critique that backs it up.  In short, he argues that movie X is… really that good.

This is one of two Christmas movies on the list that have gotten the “Really That Good” treatment, and I have to say, it’s my favorite.

And if you want some snark, it has a sub-list called Really That Bad.  I enjoy his snarkier reviews… I will say I laughed so hard it was painful during most of this review:


Christmas Drag Brunch

Drag Brunch today at Edibles. Rochester throws  some pretty big shows!

Two veterans of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Mrs. Kasha Davis and Darienne Lake.  Plus the brilliant Aggie Dune, and the 7ft-tall (in heels, but still) Ambrosia Salad performed hilarious lip-synchs and ad-libs.

All photos by Jill Frier.  Soundtrack highlights below.

(I think this is the right cover version.  Minor key makes it creepier.)


Ornaments and Movies

Today was all about decorating the tree, and while doing that you have to have a Christmas movie playing in the background (it’s in the rules!).

Which movie I think is absolutely the best can vary based on my mood.  But this will never be far from the top at least.
