A Trump Christmas Carol

Roz Kaveney, Laurie Penny, John Scalzi, and Jo Walton: "Democracy was dead to begin with. There was no doubt whatsoever about that.

Spike Jones Christmas is still the best Christmas

Spike Jones was one of those rare talents who stayed playful with his art. He recorded a ton of holiday music, sadly crowded out these days by insipid and derivative renditions that feel more like money grabs than celebrations. Case in point: his spirited rendition of Jingle Bells.

Spike inspired many great covers in his style, like this version by the Pittsburgh Symphony Brass:

Here's a lot more Spike if that tickled your fancy, ranging from serious to silly. Man, Spike and his musicians and singers were the tops in any style.

Watch this very funny parody of a TED Talk, any TED talk

"Now that doesn't sound important, and it's not, but if I repeat it three times I'm making you believe that is important."

"Let's look at a picture of the planet for no reason. It's nice isn't it. That's where we live. What happens if I put some words over it? How about a number? What if I pose a question? By doing this, I've now made you think that I know what I'm talking about."
