The Throne of Lies

It’s been one heck of a crazy year, and one which maintained a rather frenetic pace.  As 2013 winds down, I’m looking forward to nothing more than a recuperative stint in a pop-culture induced vegetative state.  OK, maybe with a sprinkle of 2014 strategizing thrown in for good measure.

And no holiday sponsored vegging would ever be complete without a hefty dose of beef, & cheese…and ‘Elf’.  Since released, this instant classic has become a staple in any self-respecting household, and has no doubt carved out a perpetual place on anyone’s ‘Best of’ holiday films list.

Having personally worked with Will Ferrell many years ago, as a (literally and metaphorically) hungry production assistant on the set of SNL, I can attest first hand that the man is a comedic genius.  He might suffer from multiple personality disorder, and sure he wreaks vicarious havoc by keeping the crew in a constant state of hysterics, but the man is a consummate professional…and hands down one of my all time favorites both on screen and off.

So this holiday season, I encourage you to grab a 2-liter of Coke, a bottle of syrup, and unwind with a good ol’ fashioned Buddy the Elf singalong.  Your ‘throne’ awaits, so go elf yourself…make ‘Elf’ your new favorite!
