Last night due to the joy’s of my boyfriend’s Sky+ box I watched Elf that was on TV on Sunday. Did you watch it? It was the first time I’ve seen it and it has really put me in the Christmas mood. Will Ferrell is great in it. He’s really, really funny but I won’t spoil it for you.

I was having a think about what other films I should watch that fill me with Christmas spirit and came up with the following:
Home Alone 1
Santa Claws The Movie
Miracle on 34th Street

I shall set about watching them between now and Christmas. Has anyone got any more suggestions?

Lost in Space 2

Posted in Art, Christmas, Claire Burgess, Digbeth, The Custard Factory by Claire Burgess on December 16, 2008

Yesterday the Lost in Space 2 exhibition opened at the Vaad Gallery. Lost in Space is made up of a collective of artists from The Custard Factory who formed to try and develop the arts community in the area. Lost in Space2 is being curated by the lovely Bryn Tranter so is sure to follow on from the success of the first exhibition which happened a few months back. If like most of the people I have spoken to today you haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet,* get yourself down there and buy unique art work. Guaranteed to impress even the most difficult of friends and family.

* It is 9days until Christmas today and Kris, our web guy still hasn’t done anything in the way of Christmas shopping. He actually said he could get everything from the “24 hour garage.” If you don’t want your loved ones to have the same disappointed face as Kris’s girlfriend will have on Christmas day, and haven’t done any shopping yet then definitely go and buy something from Lost in Space 2.
