Ugly Christmas sweaters festooned with kitschy mind-boggeling, knitted tchotchkes are so hot this year. Google searches for ugly Christmas sweaters are at an all-time high in the U.S. and Canada. Why even Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and Hillary Clinton are selling campaign-related ugly sweaters. We donned our ugly Christmas sweaters to conjure up the 3rd Annual Life Elsewhere Holiday Gift Special. Deliberately replacing Christmas with the politically correct Holiday, in part to piss off Bill O’Reilly. We called upon some of our favorite imaginative minds to entertain us with their Holiday Gift selections. Smart, witty author, Mark Haskell Smith; astute, informed caricaturist and social commentator, Steve Brodner; influential and acclaimed Creative Director, Robert Newman; conscientious and sagacious author, Patrick O’Neil; talented new British-American musician, Zuzu. Our creative panel were asked to select three books and one non-book gift. Don’t miss the diverse, intriguing and unpredictable results in the next edition of Life Elsewhere.
Also in the program renowned film and media critic, Bob Ross, will give his sensible overview of this year’s Holiday movie releases.
