Hot Hockey Players Sing You A Christmas Tune

Generally, I despise Christmas music. I’m Grinch-y like that! But take Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” add several members of the Belfast Giants hockey team, and mix it all up in a lip dub, and I am one happy holiday camper. Apparently, the guys were trying to drum up ticket sales by creating this catchy video. I could probably do without the elf outfit, but the bulging biceps are a fine holiday gift this year.

How To Not Screw Up The Holidays If You’re Single

The holidays, and winter in general, are for couples.

I swear, I’m not beating my usual “life is cruel for us singles” drum, because we pretty much own spring and summer. In winter, though, people pair off and disappear like the end of a key party, and we’re just left sitting there on the couch in our Fair Isle sweaters, wondering where everybody went.

After 30-some years of being single, I haven’t become inured to getting a little down about it. Who ever gets used to not having somebody to take home to their mother or to introduce around at the work party or, hell, even buy something goofy for? Read more Keep reading »

Andrew W.K. Rocks Out On “Silent Night”

I used to hate Andrew W.K.–his whole “party hard” schtick was really grating and annoying. And then I interviewed him a few years ago and found him to be one of the sweetest and most genuine rock dudes out there. I still don’t really want to listen to his music, but I get his appeal. With that in mind, I present to you Andrew W.K. doing the holiday classic “Silent Night” — in a way you’ve probably never seen before. [A.V. Club] Keep reading »
