We recently received a suggestion for a question to start the year off, from one K.C. (Thanks man!). Now that most of us have drug ourselves out of bed finally and taken a look to see who ended up with the coveted HCOTY, here goes! Mostly here we take a look back, but […]

All Canadians Know Each Other

That’s what we seem to think sometimes. It’s easy to do. There’s only like 30 million of them.

Ed. Thanks to ssurfer321 for sending this in. I chuckled.

Celebrating The Low Tech North

Today is Canada Day, when Canadians and angry Quebeckers celebrate (or angrily acknowledge) the day in 1867 when the British colonies of the Province of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia became the Dominion of Canada but still printed pictures of the current British monarch on its money. Today, many Americans think of Canada […]

Spiritus Santa

Since it is the holiday season, we can’t let the weekend pass without remembering some Christmas film favorites. Yesterday  gave us some great vintage toons, and today, as a treat, we have Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, a sci fi classic from 1964. The plot, if that sort of thing matters to you, involves a Martian bid to make disgruntled their children happier, that results in them kidnapping Santa from Earth… According to the Public Domain Review blog, this nugget regularly makes ‘Worst Movie Ever’ lists, and has been sent up repeatedly on such shows as MST3K and Cinematic Titanic. With endorsements like that, you can’t go wrong, so take a little time out of your last minute shopping and enjoy!

One of the greatest holidays is upon us. It’s time to stress out over what to get Aunt Mildred and dream of what we would like to receive. As the great 21st century philosopher Sheldon Cooper said, “I know you think you’re being generous, but the foundation of gift giving is reciprocity. You haven’t given me a gift, you’ve given me an obligation. The essence of the custom is that I now have to go out and purchase for you a gift of commensurate value and representing the same perceived level of friendship as that represented by the gift you’ve given me. Ah, it’s no wonder suicide rates skyrocket this time of year.”
