{     Gift Guide for 2007     }    

Here is a small gift guide for 2007 from one CrownDozen.com author, more to come later in our official CrownDozen.com '07 Gift Guide!

1. Freight Train Graffiti (book) This is a great book about the freight train graffiti scene. Very well put together and hi-res pictures. I've always loved trains and when I found out about graffiti, that was it. It's the best of both worlds.

2. iPod Touch (gadget) It's an iPod but it also functions as a small computer. Pick up wireless signals wherever you go, if they are out there, and surf the net. The only qualms I have about this gadget is that it only comes in either 8gig or 16gig size, but I'm sure that will change soon enough. The other thing is that it's rather small, and so the virtual keyboard takes some time getting used to. If you're anything bigger than a Barbie doll then you may have problems typing. They may want to think about including a touch-point type of pen for typing. Again though I'm sure that Apple with either include one or one of the many many third party companies that make accessories for various Apple products will have one on the market.

3. Apple MacBook Pro (super-computer) Wow.

4. Zodiac (film) I saw this in the theater and was pleasantly surprised and impressed by this film. It's about the serial killer known as the Zodiac. Being very interested in the phenomenon of the serial killer for as long as I can remember, this piqued my interest right away. It's a great film even for those who are not interested in serial killers per se.

5. Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro (digital SLR) I've owned two Fujifilm digital cameras so far and they both have been great. The reason I had to get another one was because I was taking pictures of some freight train graffiti and tried to chase this one piece down, slipped, fell and busted my chin open and broke the camera in the process. This S5 is a full fledged digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera. I'm not even sure most people would know what to do with it if they had one, but it's pretty much the only camera most people would ever need. At 12.3 megapixel resolution I'm sure that any photographer would be satisfied.

6. Who Is Bozo Texino? (documentary film) This is a documentary film about one of the most famous of hoboes; Bozo Texino. It follows the film maker's search for this legend of the rails.

7. Dexter (DVD) I love crime and shows about crime. I was a little weary about this new show called Dexter about a serial killer who kills serial killers, but once I saw it I got hooked. I am not usually one to purchase a dvd of a television show but if it was given to me as a gift I would surely take it!

8. Riding The Rails (DVD) Riding The Rails is a PBS produced series on freight hoppers and hoboes. It goes over the history of riding the rails, who did it, why and how. I have read transcripts of some of the interviews with those that actually did it in the early days of the railroad. Seems like it would be the ultimate escape and freedom.

I love...LOVE my MacBook Pro. I think at some point it became a symbiotic silver suit I wore.

..as for the iPod Touch, I'd kill for one of those bad boys. I was it had 160GB of storage instead of 16GB, but still, it's worth it.

Support the WGA and do not buy DVDs this year unless the strike is resolved. Shame on you Crown Dozen.
