Starting this Friday and running through Christmas eve, the Cable Car Cinema will be screening the 1946 Frank Capra classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.” New York Times reviewer Bosley “Bah Humbug” Crowther found it a little on the sentimental side.

How Do You Say ‘Christmas Tree’ In Aramaic?

So we are back to the tree-lighting discussion (ProJo 11.28.12). Governor Chafee had hoped to avoid the whole mishegas by not having an official lighting ceremony, but nooooo, out came the usual suspects. For one, we have roused that cynical demagogue and “Devout Catholic” Bill O’Reilly, who once again aims to inspire the low-information Christians

Metalocalypse Dethmas Special

Who would have thought that Dethklok would be the first out of the gate this season with a Christmas special? They will apparently be picking ‘Secret Santas’ and arguing about the Christmas tree.
