Merry Christmas 2018 from Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog
We are happy to wish all of you a Merry Christmas - and nothing says "Merry Christmas" quite like William Shatner a.k.a. Shatner Claus!
Or, for that matter, the McKenzie brothers!
What would Christmas be without Eddie "The Old Philosopher" Lawrence?"
Enjoy watching showbiz king Bing Crosby and the always innovative David Bowie sing "The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth" together every year. Pay no attention to what the scriptwriters for this program penned; Mr. Bowie was an advanced student of music and very likely knew tons more about the songs, instrumentalists, classical music artists and vocalists who preceded him that Der Bingle did. Love David's vocal here and always love Bing, whose 1942 White Christmas album was a staple of our family Christmas playlist and those of millions of other households around the world.
We also find that a bit of funk at Christmastime always makes the holidays go even better! MACEO!
While there are lots of great Christmas flicks, many running in rotation right now on Turner Classic Movies, our favorite here at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog (other than Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol) is the 1926 short subject There Ain't No Santa Claus, produced by the Hal Roach Studio (a.k.a. The Lot of Fun) and starring Charley Chase and Noah Young.
Could there be more jokes about ill-fitting Santa suits and ridiculously long beards? No.
Nothing makes a Cool Yule like Joan Crawford selling Royal Crown Cola! In Joan's case, said cola would be mixed with rum - and plenty of it, possibly along with two shots of Jack Daniels for good measure! Santa, watch your back - Mama's horny now!
To all my family and friends, as well as readers of this blog, lots of Yuletide good cheer! Feel very, very lucky today.
