Something Cute for Christmas

When I first saw Cute Overload, I liked it but didn't think I'd be checking it for updates or anything. After a week of a CO Bloglines sub, I can definately say my mood brightens when I see that there are new photos. Enjoy.

This is not The Greatest Blog Post in the World, oh no.
This is just a tribute.

This is The Greatest Blog Post in the World. Fuck Christmas? Yeah baby.
"“We’re not allowed to say ‘Merry Christmas’ anymore!” Are you fucking kidding me? Knock yourself out. Say it at work, scream it in your high school lunch room, hell, tattoo it on your fucking forehead for all we care."

Couple of Cool Sites

I ran across an excellent blog discussing Public Art in Portland.

I also discovered SpaceWeather.com, for the climatology nerd in all of us! For example, tonight's full moon is called the Long Nights Moon... "so-called because it occurs near the winter solstice, the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. Tonight's moon also happens to be the highest-soaring full moon in 18 years. As seen from most parts of North America and Europe, it will be above the horizon for more than 15 hours--a long night indeed." I will now be wandering outside in the freezing cold to look for ice halos.

At Least Some Chevron Dollars were Wasted on a Hippy

Just a cheery blog post to bring you the The 14 Worst Corporate Evildoers. "On issues like war crimes, torture, toxic dumping and stifling freedom of speech, corporations like Coca Cola, Chevron and Philip Morris are way out ahead of the rest."

I mean "Jingle Bells"...

...You know, Santa Claus, and ho-ho-ho, and mistletoe... and presents for pretty girls...

It will surely shock no one that I love the Charlie Brown Christmas. Here are some tidbits you may not know:

"It was criticized as being too religious—Linus quotes straight from the King James Bible (Luke 2:8-14). It was criticized for featuring contemporary jazz, an offbeat choice for a cartoon. It was criticized for not having a laugh track. It was criticized for using the voices of real children (except for Snoopy, who was voiced by animator Melendez)."

"Until 1997, the scene in which the Peanuts throw snowballs at a can on a fence was missing from both broadcast and video versions."

Read more here... From this article:

"The teacher's voice was really a trombone, muted by a plunger. Perfect. The kids' voices were done by kid actors, some of whom didn't know how to read and were too young to understand the lines."

Test your Charlie Brown Christmas knowledge!

Mark your calendars, we are all going down in 2036. If only we could harness the energy of a million Atari geeks, we could blow that asteroid right out of the air!

720p vs. 1080i Explained!

"The Great HD TV Debate EXPLAINED and SOLVED"


Swiveled Straight

Not to be confused with Scared Straight or Straight Paths Ministries...

No no, we hemmed and hawed and finally gave in when we thought about the cold and bloody fingers we would have if we went home and did it the old fashioned way, so we spent $34.95 (on sale!) and bought the Swivel Straight Christmas Tree Stand. Verdict? Fucking fantastic. The pegs are actually meant to thread through the holes! You put on the mini-base and tighten it while the tree is laying down, then you put the mini-base in the big base and it locks in. Press a lever with your foot to loosen it, swivel and straighten to your hearts desire, then let go and it locks into place. Heh.

Gotta go find a place to hang the mistletoe...
