Greetings, salutations, and welcome to the winter
 I think.  2017 is coming
to a close, “...nailing and screeching all the while, like an orangutan with
a steak knife in its side.” (quote taken from a piece Tom Robbins wrote
about Leonard Cohen, which somehow seemed appropriate to me at the moment.)
Orangutans aside, it has been quite a year.  And what better way to end the
year than taking a peep into the collective yearnings of our prized users to
find out what’s cool, what’s hot, and what’s dab.  

 

Some random notes and mentions of oddities that appear on and off the list.
There are twelve people lined up for a “first edition” copy of Homer’s The
Odyssey.  The single available copy of Tommy Wiseau’s epic failure of a
masterpiece (or masterpiece of an epic failure?) “The Room” currently has an
estimated four month waiting period.  Is it possible that almost 60 people
lined up for BBC’s 2004 film “Dunkirk” are secretly hoping for Christopher
Nolan’s 2017 wartime saga “Dunkirk” (releasing December 19th)?  Time shall
tell.

 

So thanks, be safe out there, see you in 2018, and remember “we are all
interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the
rest of our lives.” 

 

Peace,

 

Josh
