    Last Christmas

    I am the ghost of Christmas Past, Mr. Scrooge...Not! Crimson Apple pops up with a Christmas gift for...someone else!

    CalcuPen!

    It's Christmas time in the mid-1970s, and The man/woman/significant other who has everything is a tough nut to crack. Fear not, "Techmoan," the "Dr. Who of YouTube" has The Answer! For nearly a Prince's ransom, you can make that person's tax time memorable with a CalcuPen! It Calculates! It Writes! It has an LED display! It even has somewhat-hard-to-find batteries! (This vlog even has "Techmoan Family" puppets!) Find one on eBay today!

    Replace This Heartbeat

    Here's a little Christmas season present, an "I need you" song from Crimson Apple.;)

    Replace This Heartbeat

    Songs about toxic love are the norm in Blues songs, but then, so are "I need you" songs, too. This is the latter, just in time for the Christmas season...

    Where's Weird Al when you need a parody song?

    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    Yep, good to hear from you. The demise of our Songfact's Fantasy sports became the end of my playing at all. I check in from time to time hoping to find someone I know.

    You as well Kevin. Always good to see you.

    I Can't Stop Lovin' You

    Good find. Thanks.
  11. Some years back, Pure Heart (Jake Shimabukuro, Jon Yamasato, and Lopaka Colon) recorded a Christmas CD and this track was on it. Hawaii doesn't have "leaping lords" nor "milk maids,and the " the pear tree" is Alligator Avocado, the composers figured out some local stuff to stand in. Pidgin English lyrics

    Fixing "Mr. Dengon"

    Have you got a baby genius who goes through toys like Garfield goes through Lasagna? Fear not, in 1985 there appeared a figure with glowing eyes that would take your messages and play them back for an unsuspecting world. It's amazing what "Techmoan" finds on these Japanese websites, though they aren't guaranteed to work "out of the box."

    Bah, Humbug!

    From the earliest days of sound film to the present day, here's a salute to the one character who could outdo "The Grinch" during the Christmas season. God bless us, every one...;) BBC Two, 12/24/1977

    December

    It's been a while since September, but here's something else by Earth, Wind and Fire.;)

    Earliest Birthdate of an Actor on Film

    Found this on Wikipedia: Matt B. Snyder (March 22, 1835 – January 17, 1917[1]) was an American stage and silent screen actor and a Civil War veteran. There is a picture in his bio of him in in Salomy Jane (1914)

    I Can't Stop Lovin' You

    If anyone is still looking for this song, I've found it. The song was recorded by The Last Word (also credited elsewhere as The Last Words) and was a minor chart hit in 1967. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2JKjmTO7Zk

    Cyber Monday

    It's early Tuesday morning, so it's the perfect time for a song about yesterday's "Cyber Monday." It isn't by "Weird Al" Yankovic, but you get the idea.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Submitted for your approval, a "four strings" instrumentalist plays a tune made famous by Freddie Mercury's band.
  19. An heir to an upper class title returns to Melbourne, Australia after some time abroad and is at loose ends on what to do next. A murder, a wayward maid, a couple of "Red" dockworkers, and the Police thrust her into a unique career. Made by ABC TV (Australia), this witty/brainy 1920's detective series had a 3 season run and a movie is rumored to be in the works. (The exact opposite of "Murdoch Mysteries.") Currently, this is an "East coast afternoon/Hawaii early morning" TV show on the otherwise-commercial-dense Ovation network.

    Mission: Impossible (TV)

    "Good morning/afternoon/evening, Mr. Briggs/Mr. Phelps, a foreign spy agency has compromised a music discussion website and turned it into a "Spam Zombie." Your mission, if you choose to accept it is to identify and neutralize the agency and to prevent the invasion of other websites. As usual, if any member of your Impoosible Missions Force is caught or killed, The Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This recording will self-destruct by the time Tom Cruise puts his shirt back on. Good luck, Dan/Jim." And now, select your team from your IMF dossiers and brief them on The Plan. Get a "GAZ" or "Elektrik" van over the border to serve as a mobile base and getaway vehicle. Be quick, before Tom Cruise and his team report for work at the Sergei Eisenstein film academy!

    Peak Christmas

    I feel like we've finally passed peak Christmas. Until recently, there was a steady Christmas creep, with stores putting out their displays earlier and earlier, and radio stations playing Christmas music before the first snow. This is the first year I can remember the post-Thanksgiving aftermath not being all about Christmas. Black Friday also seemed more mellow, with less mania as people realized they could just order gifts on ye olde Internet. Of course, this is all anecdotal.
  22. "Me And Mrs. Jones" by Billy Paul https://www.songfacts.com/facts/billy-paul/me-and-mrs-jones
  23. Anyone know a Soul song about a guy who has a wife but also has a lover? It has some lyrics that are just wrong in this day and age. TIA

    Black Friday song

    OMG, it's that time of the year again, when Christmas shopping season crashes into retail outlets like a green Tsunami! Stay Away From The Mall! Search out and find the most obscure store far from Macy's or Target.

    Black (2005)

    Submitted for your approval, a film from India about a blind, deaf girl and her teacher. On the other end is the need for a bridge, when the teacher's memories are gone and the pupil has to reach him. What would Hollyweird do with such material these days? (Said to be based on "The Miracle Worker" and the life of Helen Keller.)

    Strawberry Moon

    Outside, there's a full moon for Thanksgiving, but here's a different kind of moon for the love in your life.

    Ex-military wired intercom?

    So you've got an "out-in-th-boonies" workshop/gardening shack and you'd like to stay in contact with the "Noble house"/ Fear not, "Techmoan" has a retro solution to gladden the heart of any Steampunk Hipster or ex-military person who's cell phone has a dodgy battery. Why would you want "to be wired" in the wireless age of cell phone? "Techmoan" thinks it would be fun; imagine re-enacting scenes from TV's "Combat" series of the 1960's. ("Checkmate King Two to White Rook, is the beer cold yet? White Rook to King Two, it's frosty, but your buddies are drinking it up at the CP, Over. King Two to White Rook, tell those layabouts to save one for me! I'm returning to the CP toot suite!")
