Countdown to the best christmas ever update

Posted 09-10-2008 at 04:58 AM by dvdelf (Musings of Christmas cheer, movies & other things)

Its sept, & before I realize it oct will be here and the whirlwind of the holidays will be upon us.

This year unfortunately my folks will not be down in dec. They will be down in Jan. so I guess it will be like having a second Christmas.

While I wish we could all be together on Christmas day, sometimes its just not possible, given the distance between us.

However my determination to make sure I capture everything about THIS Christmas on video remains, & the importance still remains

the otter controversy

Posted 05-05-2008 at 07:05 PM by dvdelf (Musings of Christmas cheer, movies & other things)

Ok time to tackle this head on.

Have you seen Emmet otter?

Are you sure?

What if I told you that if you have watched it recently on dvd, you probably have not seen ALL of Emmet otter?

Lets look at the first release from columbia.
Theres an edit job on the laudry delivery between Ma & Gretchen fox.

Theres another edit between Emmet & ma, right around "aint no hole in the washtub. Also some added lines to the song.

Theres an added act to the talent show

theres another removal on dialogue between Will possum & mayor fox

theres a complete removal of a scene with kermit.

Second release, collectors edition from HIT

First up Kermit the frog is completely gone from this release. At this point Disney owned Kermit, & they were not about to allow someone else to cash in on him.

There are however lots of added...

A guide to DVD's

Posted 05-05-2008 at 07:15 AM by dvdelf (Musings of Christmas cheer, movies & other things)

So you're looking to expand your christmas movie collection?
Looking in walmart, or on amazon or just about anywhere else you'll be overwhelmed by selections.
Theres special editions & anniversary editions & blah blah blah.
So what should YOU get?
Lets break it down.
Are you interested in just watching the movie? Are you interested in bonus features such as commentaries, documentaries & interviews & such?
Would you like a colorized version of a black & white classic?
These are the things you will be checking for.

Most Christmas movies that are out now, are single disc releases. Play the movie, & thats about it. Maybe a feature or 2.

But some of the classics & newer releases are being released in two disc & special editions.
You'll be looking for things that might interest Commentaries by folks that were involved in the making of the movie
deleted scenes that...

Why I believe in Santa Claus

Posted 05-04-2008 at 08:31 PM by dvdelf (Musings of Christmas cheer, movies & other things)

I admit it, I believe in Santa Claus.
Why not?
Because he flys all the way around the world in one night?
Because he fits millions of toys for children the world over in a sleigh & delivers them in a single night?
Because he's a rather large gentleman that somehow squeezes himself down the chimney to deliver said presents & then goes back up when hes done?

How about this:
Santa Claus visits all these children all over the world & gives them gifts for one reason, to make them happy. Does he ask for anything in return? No We give him cookies, but does he ever ask for them? No of course not, but he eats them for the same reason he brings gifts.
LOVE
Santa Claus loves everyone, & he loves to make them happy.

Are the things he does impossible?
By our conventional understanding of the world sure.
But not too long ago, we thought the world was flat, the earth was the center of the...

The most important Christmas ever

Posted 05-04-2008 at 04:51 PM by dvdelf (Musings of Christmas cheer, movies & other things)

The most important Christmas ever


Its coming, I can feel it. I hear its footsteps. I dread its approach, but I want to embrace it with all my heart. I want to grab it & hold onto it, & never let go. I want to throw a celebration that all will remember for years to come. I can't deny it, I can't ignore it, but I CAN make it a great Experience.

It's the most important Christmas ever, & it will be here in just nine months time.


To understand the importance of this Christmas over the 33 others I have celebrated in my lifetime you have to know all facts.



I have a nephew who is 17. Between now & Dec. 25th he will turn 18.

Childhood is over.

Life beckons.

Who can say where the future will lead?

Sure there will be other Christmases in the future. Sure there will be many we will share together. But this Christmas marks...
