Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

leave a comment »

That time of year again and here’s my now traditional bits and bobs off youtube and elsewhere…

“THE HOMEMADE XMAS VIDEO” 1986 – Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones
Stumbled over this months back but saved it for more seasonal viewing

The Signal Man by Charles Dickens
One of the great ghost stories for Christmas the BBC used to do (and has now revived)

The 12 Days of Chavmas
(a bit of an oldie now, but a goodie)

Oddly never heard these in the shops this year…
Slade – Merry Christmas Everybody

Jona Lewie – Stop The Cavalry

The greatest Christmas song ever written bar none
The Pogues & Kirsty McColl Fairytale Of New York

I now watch it every year: The Junky’s Christmas (Best Christmas story evah, bar the first one)

The only end of year round up you need to read – Brooker of course

Headline of the year

Oh and apparently snow is the thing of the past (well they thought so way back in 2000)

Scene of the year (Chalkie in Boardwalk Empire)

Have a good one in 2011
