Outstanding Essay – Bittersweet Christmas Morning

This comes courtesy of Julian Murdoch (a.k.a. “Rabbit”), member and regular contributor to Gamers With Jobs — a site (and podcast) I frequent since I decided to outgrow the bathroom humor inherent in so many other video gaming communities.

Click and read this.  Now.

Mr. Murdoch has a good ten years on me, but we’re hitting several balls in the same park.  It’s a hard thing when a lifelong hobby and love of mine tends to be equated with immaturity.  It’s refreshing to encounter other “grown-ups” who aren’t just sad man-children that never really left their early twenties behind, but who can still enjoy “childish things” respectably.  Kudos, Rabbit.

Abomination?! (The Star Wars Holiday Special)

I’ve heard of this, but never before had the (mis)fortune to actually run across it.

I’ve seen a little less than 10 minutes.  I’m not a drinking man, but I may have to start before I watch any more.

And yes… that IS Bea Arthur.  Why, God??  Why, George Lucas?!?

Watch it below, or CLICK HERE to see it at Google Video.  Where you COULD, I suppose, watch it in full-screen… if you hate yourself that much.

One week until Christmas, world still insane…

‘Tis the season for utter craziness.  God Bless America!

First item up for bids: a 10-year old Florida girl gets arrested for cutting her steak with a knife.

Read about it HERE.

Insanity In Action #1: Way to demonstrate how to be a responsible adult there, teachers… Call the cops on a little girl.

Next, what says “Christmas cheer” better than a 33-year old New York woman fondling Santa Claus?

No, really—click HERE to read for yourself.

Insanity In Action #2: Be careful who you call “Ho Ho HO,” old man… Some people may interpret that as a come-on.

Finally, in a bright spot, Bill Clinton gets pwned (pronounced “hahahahaha,”) in a response statement from the RNC following claims that G.H.W. Bush would join him on a worldwide tour to apologize for his son’s (current President Bush) bad behavior.

(Click HERE.)

Insanity In Action #3: People actually WANT this man back in the White House…

IN SUMMARY: Whether it’s your cutlery, your hands, or your opinions… maaaaaybe it’s a good idea to keep things to yourself.

Not that I’m complaining…

‘Tis the season… for strange music (UPDATED)

I thought I’d share one of my favorite seasonal resources with my many (LOL) readers: The X-Entertainment Christmas Jukebox.

If you’re familiar with the X-Entertainment website (warning: NOT porn,) then you know what to expect. Matt (whose name I can’t seem to recall,) a twenty-something writer from New York state, has spent nearly a decade (I think) writing capsule reviews about toys, TV shows, and life experiences from his childhood (still in progress.)

His streaming Christmas jukebox (linked below) contains a collection of holiday favorites from radio and TV of yesteryear, as well as some more obscure tunes (Dominick the Christmas Donkey or Run DMC’s Christmas in Hollis are a couple which spring to mind.) Not all of them are child-friendly, but you are guaranteed to smile and groan as the  Christmas memories come crashing through your brain.

NEW: They play in their own window (not sure what the plugin is… probably flash.)

Enjoy.  2006 Jukebox
