I'll take "Red Things You Find Under The Couch" for $500 Alex

retroflix next to last review (there will be a list tomorrow, and hopefully a review on tuesday) is of Will Vinton's A Claymation Christmas Celebration. I found a you tube video of their version fo Joy to the World on there, which is probably my favorite version of it. The cartoon is just mind blowing too...
You need to skip the first minute or so, to get to the cartoon, which is really great.

That doesn't count as today's cartoon, I just wanted you to see it.


Tomorrow really will be the last day of the Radio shows...

The Cinnamon Bear - episode 25 Dec 23
Captain Tintop

Jonathan Thomas Christmas On The Moon - episode 25 Dec 23 1938
Rescuing Santa Claus

Cartoon
Homestar Runner posted a new cartoon, so I'm going to post Happy Dethemberween for you

Question...

On christmas eve, do adroids have streaming video of CGI sugar plumbs shown in their heads?

Do they dream of electric reindeer?

Shouldn't Santa just be retired?

He's clearly a replicant!

Today is Buddha Day!

I came to a conclusion about Buddha Day, I never actually said when it is. I mean, maybe I hinted, but I don't think I ever gave a date.

I didn't want to make it compete with anything, and besides the right-wing nutjob christians are turning everyone off Christmas anyway with their made up war that makes the whole thing no fun. So the 25th was out. I also figured the 24th was out because I didn't want to look like I was moving off one day just to be polite.

Also, I'm having a party today anyway and there will be presents (oh yes my darlings, there WILL be presents) so I figured why not have today be Buddha Day? Then it could be a Buddha Day Party, which is cool.

So there you go, Buddha Day! It's today! Now we've just got to work out some tradtions.

I figure the first one will be that you've got to be a smug son of a bitch who makes up new holidays when it suits him.

VEWPRF Threat Warning System

There has been a request, and I only just remembered about it now. Someone was wondering what the VEWPRF Threat warning thing was about and did I have a full system worked out with color coding and everything.

Yes, yes I do.

I'll start as the lowest level and work my way up as I go down the page.

Feelin' fine.
The lowest of the threats, the phrasing comes from a Simpson's Halloween special.

Somewhere there is a crime happening.
That’s from Robocop. Someone, somewhere, is playing Sleigh Ride. I really HATE Sleigh Ride. I can handle it, but that songs grates on my nerves.

Snakes, why'd it have to be snakes?
Things are starting to be just a little frustrating, but I’m cool. No big deal. Gonna get cranky soon though.

Enough is enough! I've had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking holiday!
Some asshole has decided to start some shit and now no one can be happy without someone getting shouted at.

Yippie Ki Yay Motherfucker!
We've only gone to this level once, and because the court records were sealed I'm not actually supposed to talk about it. Suffice to say, several people were put on the naughty list permanently for that day’s work. Not me though, I still get prezzies!

So there you have it, all five of my threat warning system states. Feel free to use them yourself.
