Cats -vs- Christmas Trees – Precious Fur Babies Capable of Malicious Destruction – The Worst Crime Scene Photos We Could Find

Unfortunately for humans, a Christmas Tree is irresistible to a cat. They are attracted to the wires, shiny ornaments, ribbons, garland, and the tree itself. To them this is a jungle gym playground designed for cats. They get to climb, chew, bat at things and stare blankly into reflective ornaments. They get to perch and hide. They simply love it.

Many folks believe that cats actually enjoy knocking things over and causing chaos. They seem to enjoy enacting destruction. This blog will not offer any advice on that subject. Here is the inevitable results in the battle between Christmas Tree and cat.

“Folsom Christmas” by Keith Coleman – Parody of “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash – Also A Cash Impersonation

Sometimes you stumble upon things while doing research. Here is a little gem I discovered in the process of researching Johnny Cash. It was performed live to video and uploaded 12 years ago. As the moment it’s gotten 9,000 views. Maybe this is the year it goes viral.

Keith Coleman is a Johnny Cash impersonator and he got creative with one of Cash’s biggest hits to create this track. We love it. In the video he claims that the Christmas lyrics were the original lyrics, but we think that’s a big fat fib.

The real Johnny Cash also recorded Christmas music but there are no holiday parodies of his hit songs to be found. His version of “Blue Christmas” is humorous in how much unalike it is compared to the Elvis Presley version.

“Snoopy The Dog” by The Great Luke Ski – Parody of “Who Am I” by Snoop Dogg – PLUS – Good Grief – An Awesome Fan Video

Cartoonist Charles M. Shulz would have turned 100 this week. He was the creator of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and all of The Peanuts gang.

I grew up watching The Charlie Brown holiday specials on TV. A few years ago I bought a DVD that includes several of the holiday specials. I’m glad I did because they don’t show these programs on TV anymore. I love to play the DVD but I kind of miss the yearly commercials.

We have a special affection for his cartoons in Minnesota. There are statues of the characters all over the Twin Cities Metro. It borders on mass hysteria.

To mark the occasion here is a great fan video. We play this song all the time on the live stream. The Great Luke Ski is an amazing parody artist. Everyone should check out his bandcamp site.

“Eat It” by Weird Al Yankovic – Music Video Gets 4K Scan & Remaster – It’s EPIC – No Wonder Michael Jackson Did a Parody Called “Beat It”

Thanksgiving doesn’t have enough songs to mark the occasion. We’ve decided this year that Weird Al’s “Eat It” should be officially canonized as an unofficial Thanksgiving song.

Here we have a stunning 4K scan and remaster. The audio, on the other hand, suffers from some destructive remastering. We’ll take the first press of the LP over that any day.

The owner of the video has disabled third-party embedding but you can watch it on youtube. It’s 4K so put it on full screen! The levels seem off though. You might need to adjust brightness.

That thing about “Beat It” was just a joke. It’s a reference to the Al’s new movie Weird. If you haven’t seen it, it’s free on the Roku Channel. Go see it!

The WKRP Thanksgiving Turkey Drop Stunt – Classic Radio Translated to The Medium of Television

Here we have a classic bit from the 1970s hit TV Show, WKRP in Cincinnati. The viewer may have been watching TV but they never get to see what the newscaster sees. Instead the viewer is invited to be a radio listener. The listener has to use their imagination. It’s called “Theater of the Mind“.

In the sequence, reporter Les Nessman (played by Richard Sanders) is dispatched to local shopping center. The program director had arranged for a number of living turkeys to be thrown from a helicopter onto the shopping area. He was hoping the stunt would help promote the radio station, under the impression that these turkeys would just fly away. Needless to say, turkeys raised as human food can not fly. Something else entirely occurred. the Hindenburg disaster was referenced.

The show was trying to save money by not showing the turkeys falling from the sky and onto the crowd of people below. They needed cheep because they were already paying a fortune to licence all the rock music heard on the show. Still, it would have been great to see the mayhem described actually appear on the screen.

To help you visualize what Les is seeing, we’ve created this cheeky little rendering with Photoshop.

“The Turkey Song” by Adam Sandler on Saturday Night Live

This is pretty much the best we can do as a nation when it comes to writing songs for our weird Thanksgiving holiday. For some reason we just don’t have that many.

Sandler recorded this again and released it on an album but the original 1992 performance on SNL is the one everyone remembers the fondest.

Does Yoko Ono Have an Orgasm at The End of This Song? – Listen (If You Dare) – Decide for Yourself

We’ve never shied away from cringe at FunHouse Radio. Before you listen to this you need to be warned. There are shrill vocalizations that make some people to get neck hair erections. Others cover their ears, yell, and stomp feet. You might even go cross-eyed.

Not only that, but we are treated with a lot of dissonant chords on a clean tone electric guitar. If you hate Jazz, you will really hate this.

“Kiss, Kiss, Kiss” was released on the album Double Fantasy in 1980. It also appeared as the b-side to Lennon’s “(Just Like) Starting Over” single. Stylistically quite different from Lennon’s track, I think it can safely be classified as New Wave. Ono fans consider this one of her best productions. It’s been remixed several times as well.

The “orgasm” starts at 1:42 in the song. The official story is that she just simulated the sounds in a studio but you have to wonder if she set up a tape recorder and then captured her and John were doing the deed. What do you think?

“The Trololo Song” AKA “I Am Very Glad Because I’m Finally Returning Back Home” by Eduard Khil on Soviet Television in 1976

Edward Khil became known to the world in 2010, when this 1976 clip of him singing on Soviet Television was uploaded to YouTube. The video went viral and became an Internet meme. It’s been described as the “Russian Rick-roll”.

In this performance Khil elected to use phonemes instead of the actual lyrics to the song. As a result it earned the nickname “Trololo Song”. This term because so ubiquitous that the singer adopted the stage name, Mr. Trololo.

The song has been referenced in pop culture numerous times. Family Guy produced a scene where the guys sing along at the local bar.

Mr. Trololo died in 2012. His final public performance was in 2010 where he sang the song to an enthusiastic crown in St Petersburg.
