Merry Christmas, Xenu!
"I Think You Might [Not] Like It"

I think you might not like “I Think You Might Like It.” From what I can glean from the bizarre music video, this is John Travolta and Olivia Newton John’s attempt at making Christmas music that Xenu would approve of.  (Is the title a direct address to Him?)

I’m not sure I even know where to start here with all the things I don’t understand about the “I Think You Might Like It” music video. John Travolta’s facial hair, his chain wallet, the awkward line dance moves, the weird airport that’s not really an airport. To quote Jessica, “It’s fair to say that the budget for this was $0.”

As ridiculous as the last 3 minutes and 12 seconds of my life were, I still didn’t forget about the alleged Travolta man massages. Especially not with that goatee. And now, I’m imagining Travolta saying, “I think you might like it” to unsuspecting masseurs. And now to quote Winona, because everyone on staff had something to say about this mess, “I have had fever dreams less disturbing than this!” [NYMag.com]

Hitched: Dudes, Help Decorate That Tree!

Only Dude In The Kitchen

My uncle Tommy’s hot sauce is the recipe by which I measure all hot sauces; it is the recipe I try to recreate to varying degrees of success every time I come home from the store with cilantro, peppers, lime, onion, garlic and tomatoes. But Tommy just knew, in some magical old-Texas-guy way, the way hot sauce was supposed to taste and look and feel.

“Tommy Baker Hot Sauce” was a staple at all my family’s holiday gatherings for years, sitting up there on my mom’s or my aunt’s counter, decimated by the time anyone got around to ham or turkey — which my uncle Tommy almost always had a hand in making, too. The man was a genius in the kitchen or on the grill.

He’s been gone for two years now, and I miss him for all kinds of reasons, but one of them is because he was a family man who owned the holidays. He didn’t just sit around and expect his wife to make him a plate and trim the tree. He wasn’t quite Clark Griswold, but he was real close. And there’s nothing I love more than a man who’ll fry a turkey, make a side dish, wash a roasting pan, and slap a wreath on the door. Keep reading »

Well, this is just the cutest! Mariah Carey visited “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to perform a Christmas ditty with Fallon and The Roots and it’ll light up even the Grinchiest of hearts. “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” is a fun song to begin with, but it’s even more adorable with the chorus of little kids in the front row.

family holiday

This piece was cross-posted with permission from FatNutritionist.com. It was originally published before Thanksgiving but we are crossposting it here with the rest of the holiday season in mind. 

It’s true, Thanksgiving is a weirdly imperialist semi-genocidal sort of holiday, but hey, at least we can enjoy the tradition of getting together with family and eating a bunch of mashed potatoes!

Or can we?

If some people’s relatives had their way, the answer would be a resounding HAHA, SUCKER! Because certain people exist only to make your food-eating life as a fat person (or a whatever-sized person) miserable.

So, here’s the thing: whether or not you are fat, you are the only person who gets to decide what food goes in your mouth, what tastes good, and how much of it makes you feel full and satisfied. No matter how many busybodies and dietary conspiracy theorists get in your face, you are still the only one who can decide. Keep reading »

The older you grow, the more the holiday season changes. It grows with you, in a way, and the frame of mind  with which you approach the Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hanukkah celebrations is a huge factor in whether or not you enjoy the season.

At my ripe old age of 24, this will be the 24th time I participate in these Wintertime festivities. However, now that I’ve graduated college, I’m starting to notice a lot of changes in my life that affect how I celebrate during this holiday season. Keep reading »
