Monday on Lubbock's First News, Rob Weiner, Associate Humanities Librarian at Texas Tech University, talked about ways to keep occupied over the holidays.

Weiner, in addition to being a visual and performing arts specialist in the library, is a comic book enthusiast and analyst. He shared some thoughts on the zombie metaphor and global super heroes.

Weiner suggested several activities that will be occurring over the holidays. He said, "there is always something to do." He observed that as "the more Lubbock becomes metropolitan and the more that we get businesses and people from the outside, the more I think the quality of what Lubbock has to offer is going to go up, because they are going to demand it." Resources for Lubbock activities include the Garden and Arts Center, the Underwood Center for the Arts, and the Texas Tech Museum. Weiner listed current and upcoming opportunities to get out of the house during the holiday: First Friday Art Trail, the Historic Toys from Holidays Past exhibit at the TTU Museum, the Carol of Lights, a performance by guitar player Joe Bonamassa, and the Trans-Syberian Orchestra annual Christmas concert.
