Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Are you trying to go with the whole 'tis better to give to receive theory? But are you actually 100% focused on the prezzies that will bear your name underneath the tree? Then you might be relieved to know: it's totally human. The desire to possess is so human, in fact, that local dance troupe RAWDance has created a show based on exactly that.

Ryan Smith and Wendy Rein, whom we profiled here, have choreographed a piece called Mine in an effort to uncover "where possession lives within the body." Grabby hands? Selfish heart? Gimme-focused brain? Find out by catching the show at 8pm on December 6 through 8 or December 11 through 15 at the Joe Goode Annex in San Francisco. Buy tickets online for $25, or you can buy them at the door (but keep in mind seating is limited).
