Why, why, why does this exist? Why would Ella Fitzgerald, the “First Lady of Song,” the “Queen of Jazz,” why, I ask you all, why would “Lady Ella” record such a song?

Stuck in my chimney, stuck in the chimney

This trailer is terrible, but it does at least show many key scenes from the movie.
Like many other folks, I’ve seen A Christmas Story an uncountable number of times because it’s one of the best movies ever. Every image pops right off the screen, every beat is perfectly crafted, every line is impeccably delivered… and so on. Since to list everything that is great about this movie is to mention every single second of footage, today, I’ll just point out a few things that I’ve seen a million times before but just never gave much thought to.

I’d swear I’ve seen a “my parents are magic” movie before, but I can’t seem to remember when. However, Merry In-Laws has Cheers alumni George Wendt and Shelly Long, so I thought this could have potential.
“We don’t know what’s happening here, either.”
A lot of these made for TV Christmas movies are ripoffs of other movies and Holiday Spin is no exception, except that I’ve never seen a ripoff of Save the Last Dance before. Read the rest of this entry
“Look, mommy! I’m making Santa Monsters!”
Holiday Switch isn’t as “Peggy Sue Got Married” as Comfort and Joy is, but it’s in the same ballpark: it’s another, “What if I had this life?” sort of stories with an actress from 80s TV. This time, we get Charles in Charge’s Nicole Eggert, who was very popular amongst the boys in my sixth grade class. Read the rest of this entry
Former The Facts of Life all-star Nancy McKeon (she was Jo) is the lead in Comfort and Joy, a made for TV Christmas movie that has two major problems: Read the rest of this entry
My day got off to a rotten start, but this video turned it all around for me. Star Trek The Next Generation is one of those things of which I’ll never get tired, and jamescovenant‘s TNG/Let it Snow/Make it so mash-up is just what the doctor ordered. Fantastic stuff – I’m subscribing to this guy’s channel just based on this one video. That might be the lamest sentence ever, but if you’re big on YouTube, you know what I’m talking about. Anyway, subscribe – MAKE IT SO!
You can tell you’ve done a good job decorating your Christmas tree when you have both Star Trek The Next Generation and Pride & Prejudice represented.
I know, this Paco Rabanne commercial is confusing, but don’t worry – I’m gonna break this shiz down for you.
1. Don’t keep your woman locked in a vault. Besides all of the obvious moral objections, you’ll literally go to jail for a thousand years. (Anytime anyone says anything about “a thousand years,” I think of that song from Twilight .)
Hello all! The live blogging from the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting should begin around 6!
I have arrived. The crowds are crazy on 6th Ave, but not nearly as bad on 5th Ave.

Ah, Christmas – the time of year when we express our love and appreciation for each other by exchanging gifts. I think we all agree that Christmas is good stuff, but at times, the gift giving can get overshadowed by the actual gift procuring. We’ve all been there – sometimes, finding the perfect gift is a royal pain in the butt, BUT fear not, because Old Cousin Big Foot has arrived to folk art up your life! Check out his store for original, one of a kind folk art gifts that will certainly not end up in the closet with last year’s sweater. Stand out from the crowd and hang with Old Cousin Big Foot!
I’ll be blogging tonight LIVE from Rockefeller Center as we count down to tonight’s lighting of the Christmas tree!
This Christmas, web ads might ask you to make an arbitrary decision about BS you don’t care about, but don’t worry, I’m on it:
That’s a phone, a set of headphones and two more phones. What’s to know? It’s not like the choices of Wii U, Playstation 4 and XBox 1 (three devices that I would like to understand how are different from one another); I already have a phone and I understand what blu tooth headphones are, so…
Oh look! Another hero disabled embedding!
