    Miscellaneous: Yuletidings

    It’s a Letterman tradition: Paul Shaffer’s interpretation of Cher singing ‘O Holy Night’ from an old variety special. Now, thanks to some enterprising elf, I can finally see the original. It’s just after the four minute mark, but why would you want to fast forward? Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.

    As you prepare for your holiday festivities, allow yours truly to shoulder some of the burden and make your movie selections for you. Here are the standard titles in the VKDC Christmas Film Festival.

    The Ref. A movie I have watched every Xmas since its release.
    Die Hard
    The Ice Harvest

    Blast of Silence. A new entry this year. Thanks to Christa Faust for reminding me.

    Followed by the collected oeuvre of the true auteur of the season, Mr. Shane Black:

    Lethal Weapon
    The Last Boy Scout
    The Long Kiss Goodnight
    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    And now, by popular demand, I give you Vince and Rosemarie Keenan’s Shane Black’s The Twelve Days of Christmas. Well on its way to become its own holiday tradition.

    Twelve cars exploding
    Eleven extras running
    Ten tankers skidding
    Nine strippers pole-ing
    Eight Uzis firing
    Seven henchmen scowling
    Six choppers crashing

    Five silver Glocks

    Four ticking bombs
    Three hand grenades
    Two mortar shells
    And a suitcase full of C-4

    God bless us, everyone. Or else.
