New Christmas Poll, Links and Other Sundries

OK, OK, I'm pushing it a bit with sundries. Indulge me. I've got a new poll on the right hand sidebar dedicated to Rankin and Bass Christmas specials. I think Rudolph and his red nose will blow the competition out of the water, or off of the sled, if you will. My vote goes to Nestor, cuz that's how I roll.

By the way, have you read the review I wrote about Nestor, the Long-Eared Donkey for Christmas TV History? He's the best.

And for the record, last month's Monkees poll ended in a tie. Daydream Believer and Pleasant Valley Sunday cleaned up!  Good picks, people!

Recently, I did a podcast with the Movies About Girls crew. This podcast is a spinoff called TV Shows about Girls. We reviewed the Avengers' episode A Touch of Brimstone and it was absolutely insane and amazing. I also just guested on another offshoot of the podcast called The MAG Down Under Variety Hour First Annual International Christmas-tacular. No links yet. This one goes up on the 24th, so I will post that link when it's available. I don't want to give too much away, but it's probably one of the dirtier holiday specials out there. Also, some of us did a rendition of Band Aid's Do They Know it's Christmas, and I got to be Simon LeBon. Be warned though... I was absolutely horrible. But it was fun and I don't regret it. There!

I've got some new stuff coming up, including movie reviews and a couple of articles about the love in the afternoon genre. What can I say? Tune in tomorrow.

Oh, and here we are singing Do They Know it's Christmas:

Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for voting! I knew Rudolph would run away with it, but I thought Year would definitely provide some competition!
