best thing on christmas tv

one thing i do remember from being a chidlet was the totp christmas specials... they used to do the 70s then as was sooo long ago.. now they do the 80s, the decade of which i was born.. such amazing music came out then! i saw the 1985 christmas special over christmas (which ranked in my top five crimbo tvs - alongside grease 2, blood sport, the nutcracker and it's a wonderful life)... this song was on :)

I'm trying to remember where i found out info on Doisneau, and why I wanted to find out more, but I can't. I had a reminder in my emails about him, so here you go. He's a french dude and what i learnt is that he loved shooting real life, not posed images, and he hated how Paris lost its authenticity.. his most famous shot of the couple having a little kiss is in every french souvenir shop... au dessous est une sélection de mes images préférées de lui :)

Resident Advisor review of Zombie Nation

Countdown to Christmas day 2

Prancer is one of my favourite Christmas movies ever. it's about a little girl who finds one of santa's lost reindeers and looks after him in secret. an 80s classic (of course).
