Best Christmas Movies!

1. Home Alone

I wonder how many kids in the 90s caused real physical harm to their parents after this film?

However, Home Alone was not all gags and laughter as this weirdo proves - someone videotaped their TV so they could post "the sad part of Home Alone" on YouTube.

(2) A Christmas Story

Oh Ralphie! (This may have been #1 but for weird racist scenes at the Chinese restaurant)

(3) It's a Wonderful Life

Uploaded by y10566. - Full seasons and entire episodes online.

Stupid Uncle Billy almost ruined everything!!! Here's SNL's lost ending.

(4) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Randy Quaid's finest hour.

(5) Love Actually

All I want for Christmas is Rodrigo Santoro!

Best UK Headlines of the Day

No one can write a news headline like the British (honourable mention to the New York Post and the Toronto Sun):

"'Satanic Slut' is Dating Oldie Adam Ant"

Pushers: Ding Dong You're Legally High

The Most Disgusting News Story Ever

So today, I decided to see what was new in the world and went to the Toronto Star's website. One of the top stories on their main webpage was not about tensions in Korea or massacres in the Ivory Coast, but rather about pigeons "under attack" in a downtown park. I happen to work right beside the park, so I clicked on the page - and I saw the most fucking disgusting photo. Check it out here:

No One Wears Jeans Like Bruce Springsteen

Okay, this is not news. A couple of nights ago I had a dream that I was married to Bruce Springsteen and ever since I have been obsessed with him! Enjoy this Born to Run compilation clip.

The real eternal question: How'd it get burned?

full disclosure: i never really get New Yorker cartoons. a play on words, you say? meh. Maybe it's too high brow for the likes of someone who faithfully "reads" Sherman's Lagoon and consistently guffaws at his (and his lagoon mates) high jinks (it's also his endearing lil'fins). anyhoooodle. here is a new yorker cartoon that encapsulates the acting prowess of one Nicolas Kim Coppola in a movie i will never see (because i am a fucking wuss, see: affinity for Sherman's Lagoon) - Wicker Man.

and the real thing:

Because love isn't just for the young folk

Happy tears alert!! So here's the story. A flight attendant chats up an old man and finds out that he's on his way to meet his high-school sweetheart, whom he hasn't seen in 62 years. The rest is just adorable!

Double Dream Hands!!

There's a lot going on here. A grown man, who looks like he just stepped off a shift at an electronic store, walks through the kind of choreography my friends and I use to come up with in grade 4. Come to think of it, "Just Like a Prayer" could have really used some double dream hand action. This man gets an A+ for enthusiasm alone. Love the freestyle at the 2:38 mark!

Good chemistry in The Proposal - perhaps these two newly single stars will unite.

Another Reason to Love Jon Hamm: He Hates Pants!

Although Jonathan Daniel "Jon" Hamm looks stunning in everything, we would all like to catch a glimpse of him in nothing. While lending his voice to The Simpsons, ETonline reported that Hamm stated, "You don't have to shave. I was considering not wearing pants...this is fantastic. I could do this again."

A while ago, it was reported that Jon Hamm also does not care for underwear (see October 24 post below). So, if I do the math properly, no pants + no underwear = mindblowing hotness.

Live Blogging Gossip Girl

Gossip girl - Chuck

-Has Serena gotten skinnier?

-Cleavage shots on this show have shifted from Serena's cans to Dan's furry moobs.

-Poor Rufus, just sitting home all day, changing sweaters and worrying about everyone.

-Question: does anyone in the US lock their doors?

-I love how the producers used every stereotype in order to create a wild party - beer pong! body shots! drugs!

-The absinthe flashback was weeeeeeird. Damien was a nerd doing Serena's homework? Alcohol affects you instantaneously?

-"He was, like, the only guy to ever say no to me" - Serena. Same as my life. Except replace "guy" with "Starbucks employee" and replace "no" with "yes" and replace "me" with "my request for a free breakfast sandwich" (that's actually a lie, he said no too).

-Wait? How did Ben know Nate? And how did Juliet get past the strict Ostroff security team?

-Townies are, like, so gross. Ew, it's like, get out of your town, and go to some other town.

-Wow, Lily is like f-ing Godzilla in this episode, destroying everything in her path

-I do enjoy a good Blair and Dan banter

-Um, so what was Ben's original evil plan? To destroy Serena, but without hurting her? And how did Serena just waltz into a secure facility? And why is she dressed like a hoochie in prison? And why do I bother asking logical questions about this show? And why do I even watch this show, given that I am 30 years old? Oh wait. The answer to that last question is Rufus. Straight up.

Conan in Jeggings

Normally, I hate jeggings. Mostly because of the word jeggings. But also because I've seen a lot of people's butt cracks in see-through jeggings.

How skinny are Conan's legs?!
