Many of you may have been shocked by my trailer for “The Saint Who Stole Christmas” when you came to the imagery of Santa Claus flipping off the camera and sitting with a half-naked woman in his lap while each hold an alcoholic beverage in their hands. But the bottom line is this: If Santa Claus was real, he’d be shitting his red and white robes! He’d be the punchline of the joke: “What’s red and white and shitty all over?”. Think about it! The world economy is not what it used to be 30 years ago. Even HE would have to cut some corners to pull off Christmas with elves, reindeer, and flights up and down chimneys.
Some may condemn my choice of photos for my trailer by saying: “Phil, you suck the joy right out of Christmas!” To them, I remind them that Christmas is more seriously about Jesus Christ, not Santa Claus. To this, they may say: “What do you think Jesus would think of your trailer?” To them, I say: “I hope he likes it…after all, He is the one who blessed me with the concept of the story and the talent to write it.” Furthermore, they may remind me that I should be ashamed of myself. To this, I tell them: “No…you should be ashamed of yourself. Stop taking things so damned seriously and enjoy life for a change, while you still have it. And don’t judge others. Judgment is mine, said the Lord.”
Folks, this is the only lifetime we have to live. Why not enjoy it to the fullest? Live and laugh a little and stop worrying about the activities of others.
And I am quite honored to remind you of the most important thing about today: “Rude and Crude” is the new “Conservative”.
You can tell this just by watching a crap load of movies, one right after the other. For example, check out this scene from “From Dusk Till Dawn”:
That was from a long time ago! But here is something more recent if not just a tad bit longer. Please meet Hank Moody from “Californication”:
So what if I enjoy a little bit of Quinton Tarantino from time to time! I still stand up against abortion and disagree with amnesty for illegal immigrants. The bottom line is that I know which things need to be taken more seriously…and everything else just falls into my entertainment category.
So please forgive me if Santa in compromised poses and situations offends you. But I just figured I would let my hair down when I wrote that story. So I also did the same when I created the trailer for it. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is the post just before this one. And if you don’t like the trailer, then please don’t buy the damned book. It’s that simple…it’s not rocket science.
