Happy holidays!

This year I've been uncharacteristically festive for the holidays.  Perhaps it's because Mr. Z and I are staying home (our home in Brooklyn) this year.  I'm usually the scrooge type not wanting to do anything related to holiday festivities, but this year we got a tree AND we went to the Nutcracker ballet!  Whoa - not to mention that I cooked a rack of lamb too.  Now if only we can get snow out here on the east coast... Anyhow, happy holidays to you all!

the Warriors

It's hard to imagine these days living without certain things - technologically speaking.  I know a lot of people would say they can't live without their smart phone or their car... or their movie subscription que.  For the past few months I've been living without a movie subscription which has forced me to revisit ones we already have.  I have to say that it's been pretty entertaining - since Mr. Z has a pretty extensive collection.

The Warriors is a movie I recently re-watched.  It's a cult classic and best of all, it's set and filmed in New York City during the late 70's.  Supposedly the film caused sporadic outbreaks of violence in Southern California and Boston, when first released in theaters (see info here).  The NYC gang "the Warriors" wear a uniform that may have inspired this popular pair, don't you think?
