The Obligatory Gift Thread
might like. Also, I've never been averse to buying what I want if freebies aren't forthcoming. So my wish lists are typically filled with items I know I'll enjoy, but that aren't high enough priority for me to buy immediately. This year, that would include gifs like The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows, 1946-Present, The Essential Groucho, that cookbook by Jerry Seinfeld's wife, Dream A Little Dream: The Cass Elliot Collection, and a collection of British soundtrack music. But maybe the best gift I received this Christmas was The Middleman: The Collected Series Indispensability, a trade paperback collection of the original Middleman comic book series, which was later turned into one of my favorite TV shows of '08. I'd been wanting to read the comics, but I had too many other books on my bedside table to justify buying it. Now I can check it out at my leisure.
How about you? What's the coolest pop-culture-related item you were given this year?
