Chip!

I thought that you might be interested in this film. It's a documentary about a rabid group of collector's who collect the more unusual Christmas records.

Interesting, Gene. I'm not into the alternative Christmas music that's explored in the film, but it's certainly a curiosity piece.

I like that it gets into the passion of record collecting through the eyes of those who collect offbeat Christmas records. This could apply to you or me as we 'crate dive' for records that we love at record shows and yard sales and the like.

Absolutely Gene; all us record collectors can definitely relate to that passion.

Mitchell, who directed the film, is a friend of mine. I helped him with some research and audio work during some of the (many years) of production (I also appear in some of the DVD extras).
Mitchell is a dedicated Christmas music collector. And while his tastes are much more in the alternative vein, I think it's a great tribute to Christmas music lovers and collectors. There's an extended bit about The Free Design which might be of interest to some folks here. There's a good heart to the film overall. I caught a special screening in Portland about a month ago and really enjoyed it.

It might be worth renting via iTunes or one of the other streaming services if you're interested.
