Had them in the US, as you say. Remember going to the Green Stamp redemption center (LOL) in a dodgy neighborhood in NYC to get that coveted electric hair dryer, circa 1965 -- SUCH fun!

Being close to the big '60' and having cared for a 'Dodo' brand - The Dodo Pad (www.dodopad.com)that is close to the big '50' (both happening next year), I am straight off to Amazon for my holiday reading this year.

Thankfully neither of us is yet extinct... Enjoy your hols!

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
