Pixel Fireplace

During our holiday gavagement, we had on a terribly kitch "Yule Log HD" cable channel, which offers an endlessly-looping video of a fireplace and the enforced cheer of Christmas music. It struck me that someone must have made a GIF 'n' MIDI version of it, as would be appropriate for use on the internet. There are several, but Ted Martens went one better, with a screensaver! Good job, Ted.

Update: A non-pixelated yule log for your computer, from the archives.


  1. what is gavagement? the only thing I can find on google indicates that the animals were then killed… not really my kind of holiday

    1.  It literally means the act of stuffing oneself with food, but usually refers to tube-feeding ducks and geese to fatten them up.  Delicious delicious foie gras is typically the result. Living in France is awesome.

  2. “Terribly kitsch”?  “Endlessly” looping?  “Enforced cheer”?  To each his/her own, I guess.  One of my fondest Christmas memories is of wrapping presents late into Christmas Eve one year, while enjoying (yes, enjoying) this “terribly kitsch” NYC Yule Log broadcast, and the old Christmas radio shows being played along with it:      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Log_%28TV_program%29

  3. I tried to watch that channel, but all that was on was a bunch of dogs and their owners frolicking in a pool to Christmas carols.

  4. How do I remove it? I went to control panel in order to remove it and it isn’t listed there. I’m not impressed with the fireplace at all and want to get rid of it.
