This is a sing-along only zone.

Entertain yourself while I'm away, stuffing myself into an eight-foot turkey and broiling myself to death in honour of the holiday (yes, probably it will hurt, but who am I to break with family tradition? There are only so many unmarried females left). I hope to be back, with a raging tan and an extra six pounds of unnecessary hip-chocolate, on January 8th.

Wondermark was suicidally delicious today.

WHAT??! ALL of Bernard and the Genie, with the GLORIOUS Alan Cumming and the DELIGHTFUL Lenny Henry, ON THE YOUTUBE??? I hope you have high-speed, dearest darlings. One Two Three Four Five Six Seven Eight Nine Ten.

Finally, what to do if you're hopeless and haven't bought anything awesome for your loved ones yet.

Track list:

1. Border Brass - tijuana christmas - tijuana christmas

Comments: This is a holiday classic. For the cover alone. But the music is quite nice too.

2. Eddie Cantor - the only thing I want for Christmas

Comments: LOVE it. Hilariously earnest, but heartwarming too. Kind of beats the cynicism out of you, you know?

3. Thee Crusaders - thee crusaders 7" - born in bethlehem

Comments: This is an old spiritual, turned into a pop-rock bopfest! Awesome.

4. Danielson - Christmas eve night

Comments: Crazy kid remix! This is as frantic as it should be.

5. Rich Aucoin - personal publication - behold the lamb

Comments: Man, gotta love that glittering disco keyboard. This is meant to sync up with the old grinch cartoon. You can see the results of that little experiment here.

6. Frank Kelly - Christmas countdown

Comments: Matt, you rule for sending me this. Hilarious!

7. Bim and Connie Kaldor - a Christmas album - ring the bells at midnight

Comments: This is mellow and quintessentially Canadian. Roy Forbes, you have charmed me, probably not for the last time.

8. Jethro Tull - Christmas album - first snow on Brooklyn

Comments: Power flute for Christmas! Everybody kick your sister! Maybe this only happens at my house.

9 Barbra Streisand - Christmas album - Christmas song

Comments: yipe!
