As my Christmas gift to you, I’ve put together a compilation featuring some of my favorite moozik from 2006. If you want a copy, shoot your mailing address to: jason (dot) preu (at) gmail. 21 tracks, 78 minutes. (If you don’t want to send me your mailing address out of fear that I’ll mail you powdered scurvy…just leave a comment and we’ll work it out.)

R.I.P. James Brown.

[Update: And, if you simply want to browse my ‘Best Of’ mix, it’s been posted over at KC’s best music site: patchchord.com]

Chili Results

Best Chili With Dead Animals:

Shannon’s “Ozark Hillbilly Chili”

Best Veggie Chili:

Chris G’s “Sweet Potato Chili”

Most Likely to Induce Flatulence:

There was a 3-way tie…so, we ended up giving the award instead to Amber’s While Chili, which somehow got a vote for Best Veggie (though it had chicken) and Best Meat.

Thanks to everyone who made it out. We didn’t have quite the madness of last year’s MeX-mas, but the chilis this year were high caliber creations.

Granada Rededication

From the UG/WYCO newsletter:

Roll Out the Red Carpet… The Screenland Granada will host a Red Carpet Rededication Ceremony on December 13 at 7pm. Butch and Marti Rigby, owners of the Screenland Granada, will be joined by Mayor Joe Reardon and community leaders for a free rededication ceremony of Kansas City’s only original “movie palace.” The Rigby’s purchased the Granada in April 2006 and re-opened it in July. The refurbished Granada, which originally opened in 1929, offers state-of-the-art features unparalleled by any other theatre in Kansas City. The Granada is equipped with a Spanish courtyard and décor, red velvet seats, a balcony, new digital sound system, stage, movie screen, full bar and of course, popcorn. It has been historically maintained and completely outfitted for the latest digital sound systems. Rigby also added new bathrooms for the 772 guests the theatre accommodates.
