I clicked the pleh box because you provided no pictures and yet had plenty of opportunity. For example...no picture of Gizmo? No pictures of Bad Santa (I know you have an external hard drive filled with these images as Billy Bob is your hero), No YouTube of the Glee Christmas song?

It's like what Zachary Quinto said in American Horror Story in talking with the Harmons.

"I said I needed gala apples and you got granny smiths."

Mr. Harmon says, "That's all they had."

"Well then you go down to the farmer's market and you ask for Pedro and you pay him to get you gala apples. Where is the effort!!!??"

I can't remember hearing "Go Tell it on the Mountain" until I read it on your blog and suddenly I was hearing it everywhere this year. I'd forgotten what a stirring song it is. Thanks.
