Yes, the question of what to get someone perennially comes up but if you know of any of their TV-viewing proclivities answering that question gets a lot easier. Here are some ideas that go beyond the obvious:Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XVI. As if it would be a surprise, we are the type of person(s) who spew a continuous stream of dialogue while viewing anything on TV and MST3K was a show built for us. Volume XVI features not only four incredibly bad films, including the horrific by seasonally perfect Santa Claus (which involves a dance number from Satan among other things) but the set includes a miniature Tom Servo character to accompany your viewing pleasure. [Note: Interview with Kevin Murphy, the voice of Tom Servo, coming soon!!] . Plenty of extras round out this DVD set which is a must for any MST3K freaks.

God Hates Us All by Hank Moody. Yes, an actual book written by Showtime's "Californication" character Hank Moody. David Duchovny got a Golden Globe nomination for his work this season but we've had complainers commenting the last few days that because of various plot twists this season that they "miss Hank Moody". Well this book is all Hank Moody all the time and if you ever liked that Hank Moody and you like to read you will like this book.
