Listen as Paul Wing, accompanied by the Ray Charles’ orchestra, narrates Robert May’s story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: [Audio clip: view full post [...]

Are You Decent?

I know, I know, I didn’t get yesterday’s TV Advent item up. I promise to make it up to you… later. Plus I owe eolivet my thoughts on the Boston Legal finale. It’s all coming. Eventually. For now, “Slippery Slope” an episode of unknown sender made me laugh way too much. So naturally I’m sharing [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 8, A Chipmunk Serenade

Cutting it a little close today. What can I say… crazy day! So how about a little music to sooth us this evening? I not only enjoy holiday episodes of TV shows, I adore holiday cartoon specials as well. Alvin, in particular, holds a place very near and dear to my heart. That’s why I [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 7, NPH Getting It Right

Every year Disney World has a Candlelight Processional and different celebrities come to town to narrate the Processional. Neil Patrick Harris has done it for several years now and was here just last weekend. Since I’m headed to Disney at least twice at the end of the month, I couldn’t justify buying a ticket just [...]

Rounding Up A Week’s Worth of TV Thoughts

I haven’t talked about my shows in FOREVER… or so it seems. I just don’t seem to have the time like I have in the past. Plus I’m sick and all I’ve wanted to do for the past week is sleep. Not that I have but, when I wasn’t doing one of the chores on [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 6, The Smallest Box

I’m not a Gossip Girl fan but I love watching the end of last year’s holiday episode, “Roman Holiday.” How is it those three simple scenes can leave me wanting to give this show another shot? But it’s really all the various Gossip Girl Christmas fanvids that got made because of that episode that I [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 5, Holiday Greetings from Digby

It hurts my heart that we’ll be saying goodbye to Pushing Daisies soon. It’s like Christmas every Wednesday with this show… although, you know, I can’t imagine Ned ever dressing Digby up in a Santa’s hat or some Christmassy sweater for a holiday card photo. And not just because it’d leave him with a dead [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 4, It’s Always Merry in Philadelphia

How exactly would Mac, Charlie, Dee, and Dennis get out of buying each other gifts at Christmas? Because you know they’re all too concerned about they want to shop for someone else. Sadly, the gang have left us for the season, so I had to find another way to keep them around for the holidays. [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 3, Holiday Work Wheel

The holidays are here and they’ve brought a lot of work with them. There’s the decorating and the baking and the gift buying and the card signing and the carol singing. Who can do it all alone?! Which is why I decided to write up instructions for creating a Holiday Work Wheel modeled after Seth [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 2, Holidays in Space

In honor of its 30th anniversary, I thought we should take a trip back in time to 1978 when the Star Wars holiday special aired. Man, I’m just all about the holiday specials this year, aren’t I? I must admit, I’ve never actually seen this holiday special… which probably makes the fact that I know [...]

TV Advent 2008: Day 1, Please Be Patient

Today’s advent item comes to us courtesy of A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All. Feist guest stars as the angel juggling Stephen’s call. I went with this as our first item because the chorus to this song is what I imagine we all have to remind ourselves at this time of year. None [...]
