I'm a music nerd: I used to be a music writer, I've been to more concerts than I can count, and I will unironically declare that I love rock 'n' roll. And I just can't deal with cheesy Christmas music. I want to listen to Christmas music that sounds like the music I actually like. I don't seek out pop music or adult contemporary the rest of the year, so why would I want it during Christmas? That said, I love listening to Christmas music during the holidays, as long as it's my kind of Christmas music. I love having albums that come out just once a year but when they do, it sounds like Christmastime. I've spent years cultivating a collection of songs that aren't "good for Christmas music," but just plain good. I have a few albums I always fall back on: A Christmas Gift For You From »

Never forget that John Malkovich is an actor who once starred in a film called Being John Malkovich, in which Cameron Diaz enters John Malkovich's head in order to have sex with Catherine Keener. He likes weird things! So it makes perfect sense that Malkovich would be like, "Yes, David Lynch, I will recreate scenes from your movies and TV shows, up to and including the Lady in the Radiator from Eraserhead!" Also, the actor was no doubt happy to help Lynch raise money for his David Lynch Foundation, which helps bring the evidence-based practice of Transcendental Meditation (Tm) to at-risk populations. In the first released vignette from the project entitled Psychogenic Fugue, Malkovich plays Agent Dale Cooper, the Twin Peaks protagonist originally portrayed by Kyle MacLachlan. It's a deft, though not entirely straight-faced, recreation of the scene from Season 1, Episode 2 that ends with the indelible line: "Diane, never »
