Christmas Text

What is it with the weird Christmas videos today? In this one Jon Lajoie sings about sending a Christmas text to…someone. It is a statement of this generation’s lack of social graces and depth that is intended to be funny. But truth often interrupts funny and in the context of...

Christmas Carols with Amy Poehler Dec14

Christmas Carols with Amy Poehler

We’re not sure about this video. We can’t decide if it is funny or pathetic. The premise is good. Amy Poehler chases Billy Eichner around the streets of New York trying to get people to sing Christmas carols with them. There’s a few laughs, a couple of unnecessary...

Hating Christmas

Shocking as it is to us there are people out there who hate Christmas. In this compilation we see the collective hate for Christmas from film and TV. It is not for the faint of heart or for those suffering from sore feet from too much Christmas shopping. Amazingly, many of these depressing...

Hard to Be a Cat at Christmas

When someone mentions a Christmas cat we think of Sammy Davis Jr. We don’t think of, um, actual cats. In fact, we don’t get cats. We don’t get Grumpy Cat. Or any of the other famous cats of Internet fame. But we understand people love them, for whatever reason. Therefore,...

Strip Mining Christmas Trees

This video is a couple of years old and somehow how we’ve missed it. Oregon grows Christmas trees and ships them all over the world. They produce a ton of trees. How do they harvest them and get them to market? Take a look at this brief video showing a helicopter doing the lion’s share of the work in getting trucks of trees loaded. It takes a bit of the romance out of fresh trees but you have to give a tip of the hat to the pilot, who clearly knows what he is doing: Share this:EmailPrintFacebookRedditStumbleUponTwitterGoogleTumblrPinterestLike this:Like Loading...Related Posts:No Related Posts
