Back In Jersey
 

I’m back in Jersey now till next week, when I’ll return to Virginia for Christmas. We decorated our tree here tonight (finally!). I was not amused at the disaster of a house I returned too. It’s getting cleaned tomorrow and will shine like the top of the Chrystler building. There will be hell to pay if I return after Christmas to a mess!

I was however pleased the new digital camera I ordered for myself as a Christmas present came. My dad gives me money, so this is what I chose to do with it. For the past 2 years I’ve said I would get a new digital camera for the yearly cruise because mine is big and bulky. I wanted something slim. I went with a 10.1 megapixel Olympus Stylus. So far I’m loving it! The low light pictures are fantastic, even better than my old Canon. So over the next few weeks expect a plethora of photos as I go shutter crazy 🙂 I have all my trees to take photos of, as well as the neighborhood lights in Virginia next week. Oh did I mention I have about 20 childhood pictures to scan and embaress myself with? Yeah look for them soon 🙂

Skinamax
 

So just in case you can’t tell by the title of this post, it’s going to be discussing some adult matter, in an albeit funny way. You were warned!

Some people might not even know what “Skinamax” means. You might have been too old (is that a rude way of putting it?), or you might be too young. In this day and age the word probably means nothing to many of you youngins. However before Al Gore invented the internet, for a lot of us “Skinamax” along with “Showtime After Dark” was the only way to get our hands on some porn! It was as lewd as cable could get back then, airing the dirty movies Fridays or Saturdays late at night. I quickly caught on to this when I noticed my father setting the VCR (as in the BetaMax) for some late night movies. To my surprise it was not “Friday Night Videos” as I was expecting! (surprise, sorry mommy!) (oh hell, not that much of a surprise, they let me watch “Porkys!”)

Well I soon became a big fan of “Skinamax” and “Showtime After Dark.” Some of my favorites where this old show “Eros America” which was the predecessor to “Real Sex.” They also used to show an awful lot of AWFUL Eurotrash movies like the “Emmanuelle” movies. I also remember this stupid German movie that was supposed to take place in Texas called “Oops I Forgot My Pants.” However one quickly became my favorite . . . . “Cinderella” which was made in 1977. Not only was it an “adult” film, but it was a 70s disco musical! Hello! This classic features songs like “Grab It,” “My Kingdom Won’t Cum” and “Do It To Me.” It is the most laughable and hilarious thing ever . . . I love it. I mean the movie features a male “fairy” godmother who gives Cinderella “snappin pussay.” The film actually features the line “You not only have tits and ass, and a pretty smile, but I done gave you a snappin pussay!” Loves it!

Sadly you can’t find it anywhere, not on DVD or VHS, but only eBay for like 100 bucks a pop (last I checked). Oh but Dustin was wise! Dustin recorded this off Skinamax long ago! Dustin has the VHS tape still! Dustin plans to burn this to DVD when he gets back to Jersey (as he plans to bring the VHS back home with him). Dustin wonders how rich he could get before he’s arrested?

Oh, you know you want a copy!

Nightmare On My Street
 

I always mean to get some kind of earplugs for when I come home to Virginia, as my room is in the center of the house, downstairs, right by the stairs and thus I hear EVERYTHING from it. It can be somewhat annoying, as I wake up to every little sound. I got all these sleep enhancers for my iPhone, but forgot to bring a wall charger home :-\ It will drain the battery without them. I have become accustom to the large sleep-number bed too I think, as I have not been sleeping well in my old old childhood twin sized bed. Thus I have been having some bizarre dreams. I tried to tweet them when I first woke up and they were fresh, but the phone was too bright and I turned it off as it hurt my eyes 🙂 The room has zero light, no windows, so I was a bit sensitive when I woke up.

The first nightmare I remember was that aliens were destroying the world. Thank you Fox for showing the commercial for “The Day The Earth Stood Still” constantly! I was for some reason in Las Vegas when it was happening. They started blowing up all the hotels. Somehow I survived, because me and others got to the top floor of the hotel we were in. The top few floors didn’t get blown up, they just plummeted and landed on a sea of water that flooded the city. Where the hell the water came from, I don’t know. After it went away to where it came from, we walked out and surveyed the disaster that was.

The second dream I’m a little foggie on. It was some kind of soap opera threesome serial killer dream. I’m pretty sure I was sleeping with a woman in it too. See, I told you, nightmare! I think for some reason though I looked like Patrick Muldoon, which wasn’t all that bad really.

There was a third dream which I can’t recall. I’m pretty sure I was back in high school though, and it probably had to do with Marching Band. I was searching through old photos while I’m home to scan and embarrass myself fully 🙂

The Darkness AKA Time For Me To Make An Ass Out Of Myself
 

Oh yes, it’s about that time, to break for the rhythm and the rhyme . . . It’s time for me to post a “Singstar” video! In this installment I sing “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” by The Darkness. Not only was I totally trashed singing it, I was trashed editing it (which I did a good job considering my condition!). As I add it I’m still buzzed! Enjoy me making an ass out of myself!

Ho Ho Ho And A Ha Ha Ha
 

I figured I better make a blog post, as it’s been a few days since my last one. We’ve pretty much got all the decorations up. The tree should be going up tonight, assuming the BF can fix all the lights that are out on it. Each year the tree gets worse and worse, but he won’t give up on it. It’s this weird green wire tree with red and green lights. It doesn’t look like your normal tree, it’s modern and fresh and blah blah blah. I keep threatening to buy a new one, I’m over it 🙂 He however loves it.

I put my never ending nativity up this weekend. Sadly I had to be selective, only putting the main cast of characters up. I never got around to buying the book shelf I considered to put everyone on it. At this point I doubt I will.

I head home to Virginia tomorrow for a lot of back and forth between their and Jersey for the next two weeks. I have stuff that has to be done up here still, and decorating that has to be done down there. Oh yes, more decorating! It’s only half over. I also got some more icicle lights to put up at my mom’s house too 🙂

The BF’s birthday is today. I decided to try and make a chocolate cheesecake for him. Oh lordy they are a lot more work than plain or even pumpkin. If this thing isn’t orgasmic I doubt I’ll do it again. It was a nightmare to make for many reasons. Lets see, idiot me left the bag of chocolate chips on the stove WHICH WAS ON. Yeah I melted about 1/4th of them. Oops! Then I fudged up the crust. I tried to take the easy way out. Rather than crunch up chocolate cookies (which I couldn’t find to save my life, except for oreos which are too much work cause of the icing) I bought pre-made chocolate pie crumb crusts and crushed them up to reuse them. Well it worked okay, but I think I had too much butter. Then I put it in the oven to bake and forgot. The whole thing puffed up like a souffle! Then on top of that I grabbed it with a oven mit with a hole in it, dropped it and muffed it up. I manage to save it once it cooled. Well I think I did. That will be determined when I’m able to taste it! Then the creme de la creme, I finally put the cake in the oven and for 45 minutes wondered why it was not baking. I turned the oven off and forgot to turn it back on!

It will be interesting to see if it ACTUALLY turns out at this point.

Christmas Classics I Love
 

After my post bitching about ABC’s mostly non-Christmas programing, I decided to post some of my favorite films and TV shows. Maybe someone at ABC will see this post and get some ideas from it! Now I have so many to choose from, so I’m going with some of the more obscure ones which aren’t easy to see anymore. Therefor Rudolph, Frosty and Santa aren’t on the list, even though I do love them.

A Christmas Carol
I love pretty much all versions of this story, and will watch them whenever they are on. One stands out as my favorite, the 1970s musical version “Scrooge” staring Albert Finney. It’s available on DVD and the past few years has made it’s way back to TV via TCM, which usually airs it uncut (when it ran on network they took out the hell segment). It’s a super long movie, which bombed in the theater. It’s since been turned into a Broadway production which tours this time of year. “Scrooge” airs tonight on TCM at midnight.

As a kid there was a short, possibly 45 minute, cartoon version of “A Christmas Carol” which I haven’t seen in years. I remember it was somewhat shocking as Ebeneezer saw himself lying dead in bed, which I always thought was a little disturbing for a cartoon! I wish they’d re-air this, but like I said, it’s been years. I don’t even remember who did it, though I remember what Scrooge and the ghost of Christmas yet to come look like.

If You Believe
This was a “Lifetime, television for . . . ” oh yeah, bad joke. It was a Lifetime production made years ago staring that girl from “Profiler” and the cheerleader from “Heroes” when she was a wee tot. It’s a cute story about a grown-up who had come to hate Christmas, so her inner child comes out to teach her what it’s all about. It usually airs once on Lifetime. It happens to come on Sunday at 11am. It might repeat later, usually on Christmas Eve.

A Mom For Christmas
This is a late 80s “Disney Channel Movie,” when the channel still actually bothered to make original movies. It starred Olivia Newton John and Jean Stapleton. Olivia was a store mannequin brought to life by a little girl’s wish to have a mom for Christmas. So far it’s not in the listening for this year. They usually show it on some obscure local station right before Christmas.

Leprechaun’s Christmas Gold/First Christmas Snow
You’ll have to wake up early on the 13th to catch these on Family Channel. They always show them together. They are classic Bankin-Rass Christmas specials, which are pretty self explanatory in the titles. “The First Christmas Snow” actually stars Angela Landsbury as a puppet nun Sister Theresa.

Noel
This was an animated special that only aired for a few years before disappearing. It was about a Christmas ornament, a glass ball, named Noel. Through the whole show it annoyingly would say “I’m Noel, and I have a happiness!” All the other ornaments and the train around the tree would talk too. Noel ended up getting shoved in the attic and forgotten as time went on, lost his luster and got shoved to the back of the tree one year when they pulled the ornaments out after a period of none use. Noel fell off the tree and smashed onto the ground. Fortunately he smashed next to the nativity scene and the figure of the Baby Jebus freed his happiness from the ornament he was trapped in and he zoomed off into the stars.


A Family Circus Christmas

None of the Family Circus specials have aired in years, and they’ve never been put out on DVD. I can’t figure out why (No comment from CB needed if he’s reading this!). In this one daddy is sad because he can’t find the star for the tree that dead granddad made. Fortunately PJ finds it at the very end, they put it at the top of the closet so it wouldn’t get lost. It also features Jeffy picking up his clothes and being good because the ghost of Santa follows him around the house watching him after his mom scolds him for being naughty.

The Little Troll Prince
This used to run on Cartoon Network, before their other shows became popular enough to get their own Christmas specials and pushed everything good off. It sometimes runs on Boom, as it was a Hannah Barbara Production. This channel usually airs all the old cartoon Christmas specials (Smurfs, Snorks, Pac Man). It was about a family of trolls and the Prince hated being a troll cause he was nice and not nasty. His brothers tried to do away with him, pushing him off their mountain, and he ended up in a tree cut down and taken into a house for Christmas. The little girls in the house thought he must be a good little gnome, and through the power of Baby Jebus he lost his tail and became a gnome. At the end he went to live with the gnomes in the forest.


Star Wars Christmas Special

You won’t find this on TV, tape or DVD as long as George Lucas has anything to say, and I’m sure he does as he owns the rights to it. Your only way to see this is to find a bootleg at a comic convention. I have one and plan to watch it this year. The reason you won’t see it anywhere is because it’s so horrifyingly bad. I bought it and put it in, only to turn it off after 30 minutes. I think the whole thing is actually 90 minutes long too. It stars the voices of the Star Wars cast for a holiday cartoon, as well as Art Carney and Bea Arthur in the live action Star Wars segment. I added it here because it’s just rare, and horrid 🙂 This will be Christmas Eve viewing at my house, or maybe I’ll put it on while we decorate the tree so we don’t actually have to pay that much attention to it.

ABC Family
 

Once upon a time I so looked forward to ABC Family this time of year, as it was the only place to see classic Christmas specials and what not. I’m talking about the Bankin-Rass stuff nobody airs on network anymore, “The Little Drummer Boy,” “The First Christmas Snow,” “Leprechaun’s Christmas Gold,” “Nestor” and the likes. The last few years though movies have taken over the line-up, especially “Harry Potter.” Don’t get me wrong, I loves the Potter, but a Christmas scene thrown in does not make it a Christmas movie. In fact the later movies all but exclude Christmas usually.

So imagine my surprise when I glanced at this years schedule. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Cars,” every “Potter” movie, “Mary Poppins,” “THE INCREDIBLES !?!?!” These are NOT Christmas movies! What the hell ABC? Yes there are a good number of Ruldoph, Frosty and Santa specials in there . . . but far too much time is taken up with these films. On the 13th is scheduled “All Day Christmas Classics” which I guess is the stuff I want to see. Hopefully . . .

However there are so many other Christmas shows they could acquire and show this time of year that have been forgotten or only run a few times. I would love to see “Noel” again, which was about a Christmas ornament filled with the Christmas spirit. How about “Family Circus Christmas?” Also I used to love “The Little Troll Prince” which hasn’t played in years.

I guess I need to peruse Amazon.com and see if any of my favorite specials are on DVD, cause it’s probably the only way I’ll see some of them.
