Tis the season [updated]

It's always a lot of fun when common themes run through the blogging community, and this is definitely in full swing with the approach of the holidays. There's some great great great stuff out there, and I wanted to take a minnit to point y'all towards some highlights. This is by no means comprehensive and I'll be posting in this vein as the month goes on, but hopefully you'll find something exciting!

  • Giant Robot's Big Christmas Stocking;
  • Gimme Back My Head has last year's badass Advent Calendar up, and we're currently on Xmas Mix watch;
  • JustGoodTunes has an amazing array of Christmas music. I'd like to recommend A Gene Autry Christmas. (Autry's 1949 recording is an early definitive version of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," a song I actually don't really like along with "Frosty the Snowman." Oooh you Scrooge- bah!)
  • The Vintage Place's A Classic Christmas includes Judy Garland's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" (written for the excellent film Meet Me in St Louis), some Crosby, Andrews Sisters, Rosemary Clooney, and other good stuff;
  • Regnyouth's Yulefinds;
  • Roggelstroe's Christmas gift to us is the ABC Shrek the Halls special. Okay, so I watched it and I liked it. I'm a closet Shrek fan (mostly of the 2nd two movies) and this Christmas special was pretty much what you'd expect. I know I linked to McNamara's snarky review, but I'd like to recommend it on different grounds: it's cute.
  • *New* The triumphant return of Adam of the amazingly creative Rebeldog Comics. He's got "a special Christmas Beatles mix for all [us] misfit toys out there"-- yup, that's you and me. So head over, cos where else are you gonna find the Beatles, the Grinch, and Yoko Ono all in one track + awesome album art?
And, of course, if any of you lovely holiday peoples have anything up that you would like to spread the word about, please do!
