When the singer of this song Thurl Ravenscroft (who looks exactly how you would picture a person named Thurl Ravenscroft would look) sang that lyric about the sea-sick crocodile I never thought “man the Grinch is awful” I thought “holy crap! Crocodiles can get sea-sick? That’s crazy!” Enjoy the song!
This is a clip from the late 90s (maybe early 2000s) from the hit show Inside Edition. It contains some of the most classic television interviews gone wrong. A few of these really take me back and I was lucky enough to even see a couple of these interviews live (Madonna on Letterman and Magnum P.I. on Rosie). Awkward interviews are like car accidents: you don’t want to see a dead body being pulled from the wreckage, much like you don’t want to see an argument get heated, but you can’t help but look. In the end it makes great TV and without a doubt Letterman is the king when it comes to it. Check out this article from cracked on his 9 most awkward interview.
The Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth) by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. This is one of my personal favourites next to N’SYNC’s ‘Oh Holy Night’ (oh yeah, I’m serious). But this one just strikes a chord with me like no other Christmas song. So please enjoy it. And enjoy this near shot for shot re-creation by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. It’s David F@#king Bowie and Bing F@#king Crosby. Merry Christmas
Wrestling is wacky. Here’s a reason why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YVUSrNylZI Fucking stupid. No place in wrestling for this. Egotistical Vince McMahon. Idiot. Wrestling is wacky.
This was hands down on my top 3 favourite Christmas Specials of all time. A Muppet Family Christmas. This was even better than A Muppet’s Christmas Carol (yeah I said it). Here is the whole special in its entirety (you can watch it all including the 80s tv commercials here. It’s amazing). This movie was the first (I believe) to bring all of Jim Henson’s Muppets together including The Muppets, The Cast of Sesame Street and The Fraggles. It’s an adorable little story of everyone showing up to Fozzy’s mom’s farmhouse for the holidays. A house she had already rented out to Doc (from Fraggle rock,) who wanted a quiet Christmas with his dog Sprocket. The whole gang winds up together and you learn the importance of family and being together and yada yada yada. It’s a great little Christmas Story and I encourage everyone to give it a watch. The scene where the Swedish Chef is trying to cook Big Bird is phenomenal! (it happens around the 27 minute mark). Merry Christmas!
