Tis the season

Well, there aren't really seasons per se out here. Although it's gotten noticeably cooler at night (and even rained the other night, for the first time I can recall since spring), it's hard to complain about sunny and 70something in December. It does, however, make it more difficult to get into the spirit of things in the same way that the coming of winter does back east. A couple Hollywood-related Christmas items of note:

A Charlie Brown Christmas as performed by the cast of Scrubs.

And some behind-the-scenes pictures of the Paramount holiday party (courtesy of davecobb). Not the typical office get-together. And which also caused something of a stir when CBS employees in the big Viacom corporate family were apparently disinvited from the studio merriment. Just further evidence of possibly the most dysfunctional lot in town at the moment.

Although for real showbiz holiday spirit, it's hard to top UTA's Wonka-esque assistant gift of a "lucky" bar. With their big hunk of chocolate, some "lucky" assistants could find a golden ticket worth between $100 and $5000 dollars . . . or they could find a couple of passes to an AMC theater of their choice! Ho ho ho. Nothing says giving, after all, like randomly-bestowed largesse to a select few persons.
