A Very RevolutionSF Christmas

It's Christmastime. Give stuff. Get stuff. Eat stuff. Repeat. And if you need a moment, check out these seasonally fun things.

Merriest Christmas Specials Ever

Not to toot my holiday horn, but I am a super-dork about those classic Rankin-Bass cartoons. I wrote this and I think you'll dig it.

And go here for more RevolutionSF holiday joyfulness..

Do You Hear What I Hear?

A Christmas story read by good and famous voice actors. Among them: Tom Kenny, movie voice guy Don LaFontaine, Gary Owens, Grey DeLisle, Candi Milo, and Jim Cummings.

Then They Shouted Out

Clips from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer cartoon, with dialogue from a movie trailer that I shan't spoilerize.

A Very Lovecraftian Christmas

Our functionaries and manservants (menservants?) at the RevolutionSF message boards revealed these joys to us.

First up is "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Fishmen." It's the holidays, so I'm not going to go bitch-cakes crazy about the brutal misspelling of "alot." Even though when you're talking about a large amount, it's spelled "a lot." I mean, "alot" is not even a word. I said I wasn't going to do that.

And another one, graciously free of misspelling, "Carol of the Old Ones."

Wookiee Wonderland

Someone did it, and I thank the Force for them. The Star Wars Holiday Special is online, and it frees me up from having to make copies for you. Go here and here, and geek it like you mean it.

Shake, Shake, Shake It

I love this. And yes, if it were possible, I would marry it. "The Narrator That Ruined Christmas" is an excellent parody of the Rankin-Bass cartoons that aired on Saturday Night Live. It is so very funny that it makes me hurt. If you don't like it, you may be a damned soulless robot.

Thumpety-thump-thump, look at RevolutionSF humor editor Joe Crowe go.
