The Nerd Lunch Christmas Eve ‘Oh No! I forgot to get ‘so-and-so’ a Gift!’ Guide

It’s Christmas Eve as I write this and you are probably all done with your shopping and wrapping. But in this age of friendships with people we’ve never met from all over the world, there might be that one person you didn’t realize was getting you a gift. Or someone just slipped through the cracks as you made your list and now you’re scrambling to think of something to get them.

No worries. I think most people will understand that. And there’s still time to do a little shopping for that special person in your life that you forgot about. Even if the gift might arrive after Christmas, we all like the residual post-Christmas gifts trickling in. Well, here we are with a few suggestions. And yes, all of these are based on supporting our own friends.

Books

Rack Toys: Cheap, Crazed Playthings
A guide to the history of Rack Toys by Brian over at PlaidStallions.com.

Beyond the Rails: Six tales of steampunk adventure on the African frontier (Volume 1)

A steampunk book written by Nerd Lunch super-fan, Jack Tyler.

Sue London’s Books
Sue London was a guest on our show a little while back and she’s written some books. Click the link above for the complete list.

Make Art Make Money: Lessons from Jim Henson on Fueling Your Creative Career
Elizabeth Hyde Stevens wrote this awesome book that I did a whole extra helping podcast about.

Magazines

Published by our friend Brian Adams and featuring articles by Howie Decker and Nerd Lunch’s very own CT.

 

Strange Kids Club’s SK Magazine #3
Published by our buddy Rondal, this features contributions from names like Paxton Holley, Shawn Robare, and Brian Adams.

Music

Miscellaneous Plumbing Fixtures
Our friend Jon Cross does music, too and you can buy his Christmas album, among other works, here.

Art

Print or Book from Des Taylor
We had Des on our show way back on episode 69. I’m a fan of this guy’s work big time. If you’re looking to get me a gift…ahem.

Movie

Tastes Like Chicken
I made a movie a few years ago and you can buy it on DVD (sorry, no Blu-ray).

    Just stopped by to thank you for the publicity, and to wish my dear friends a joyous Christmas and a safe and happy new year. Hope your dreams came true this morning, and that if you live to be 100, 2014 will turn out to be the year that you remember fondly.

    All the best,
    ~ "Blimprider"
