angry holiday gift guide, part 2

Thinking of what to get that special someone this holiday season? Over the next few days, in the spirit of goodwill and consumer-driven celebration of religious holy occasions, I'll be throwing out some fun/cool gift ideas. Continuing on with part two, here's some stuff if you've got some cash to burn. In no particular order:

Lost: The Complete Fifth Season Dharma Initiative Orientation Kit
Catch up with the latest season of the coolest, most mind-bending, time-twistiest show on television before the sixth season premiere in February -- the beginning of the end. But don't you dare start with season five. If you haven't already, you must watch the complete series up to now. You must. (Hopefully, you'll read this in time.)

Yo-Yo Ma: 30 Years Outside the Box
Think you're a Yo-Yo Ma fan? Know someone who is? How about this big-ass box of Yo-Yo Ma, a deluxe limited-numbered box set of the acclaimed cellist's recorded legacy celebrating his 30th anniversary recording with Sony Music. That's 88 discs of original album releases and an additional two discs of bonus material. This is for the serious Yo-Yo Ma fan. But if anyone deserves a box set like this, I guess it's this guy.

Boys Over Flowers Vol. 1 & Vol. 2
For the K-drama fan in your life. The immensely popular TV comedy, based on the hit Japanese manga, comes to America in these two box sets. Join Jandi and the Boys of F4 as they learn the true meaning of friendship and love. To be honest, I've never actually seen this show, but I know more than a few people who L-O-V-E it. With a special kind of dedication. Obsession, even. See what the fuss is about.

AK 100: 25 Films of Akira Kurosawa
Drool. This amazing box set from Criterion Collection celebrates one of the most influential and beloved filmmakers of all time -- if not the greatest. This deluxe linen-bound collector's set includes 25 films, including Rashomon, Ikiru, Seven Samurai, Yojimbo and High and Low, as well as four rare Kurosawa films never released on DVD. This is, hands down, the most complete set of his works ever released in the United States. Heck, does someone want to buy me this?
