It's Boxing Day Internet!

Ah, Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year. A different Christmas for me, as it's the first with child. A very little child, but a child nonetheless. He doesn't do much expect eat, sleep and produce foundation shaking farts, but he certainly takes up space, time, and both mental and physical energy. 

Anyway! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are now suitably full and/or pissed. After all, that's what it's all about. 

Let's look at Star Wars, and a five year-old discussing Princess Leia's clothing. 

BBC reporter, Quentin Sommerville, tries to report standing next to a big pile of burning heroin, hash, and opium. He tries not to inhale, but I don't think it worked very well. 

This look at Christmas, auteur style, is very good. I like them all. 

He sees you. 

Have a Christmas dinner donut and be done with it. 

So....apparently, that sound that took over trailers and movies for a few years (also known as the Inception Horn, or just BAAAAAAAAAARP), is, "...based on an extremely slowed down version of the fast, high pitched trumpets in that Piaf classic." The classic being Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien. I didn't know this. 

Wikipedia have made their first video based on what we read and what we edited. It's a great way to show the year. 

What happens when guys kiss guys for the first time? Not that much actually...

Because it's Christmas, I have to share this again. It might be a few years old, but it's still absolutely brilliant: The Santa Brand Book

Finally, here is what happens when the BBC work on Christmas Day. 

Have a great rest-of-holiday.
