This is a fun little Stranger Things/Peanuts mashup by Leigh Lahav & Oren Mendez. It will now usurp A Nightmare Before Christmas as our post Halloween/Pre-Christmas go to. Enjoy!
This week’s Throwback Thursday is the juggernaut Christmas hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey. However, instead of the classic 90s video we are changing it up with Mariah’s appearance on The Tonight Show when she performed it with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots with the help of classroom instruments and some delightful children. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
The Nostalgia Blog’s Christmas gift to you, Jim Carrey during the Christmas season on Letterman and Leno. Feel free to re-gift. Enjoy!
This is a delightful oral history of what I think is safe to say my generation’s all time favorite Christmas movie, Home Alone (all due respect to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation). The piece is written by James Hughes (son of Home Alone writer, John Hughes) for Chicago magazine which is fitting as the film took place “on the most boring street in the whole United States of America, where nothing even remotely dangerous will ever happen.” which happens to be in Chicago. If you aren’t familiar with oral histories, they are in my opinion the best way to recount stories (especially in the entertainment industry). The reason they are so good is that it is the people involved just recount their versions of what happens which usually makes for a more interesting read. The article is full of fun anecdotes and delightful stories, so please, grab a whole cheese pizza, sit down and enjoy reading this oral history…ya filthy animals. link to oral history found below: http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/December-2015/Home-Alone/
