Happy Friday!

And Merrrrry Christmas of course!

Can you believe it? So crazy! It’s Christmas!!

And! It’s video time. Let’s go!

Why Almost All Christmas Music Is From the 1940s and 1950s – Cheddar Explains

Ali Larkin does a medium dive into this question. They start with Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” and progress from there.

Worth a look!

2020 Movie Trailer Mashup

Believe it or not, there were movies released in 2020!

Short little mashup but it’s well done.

The Beatles: Get Back – A Sneak Peek from Peter Jackson

“Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson has released an exclusive sneak peek of his upcoming documentary “The Beatles: Get Back” for fans everywhere to enjoy. The 5-minute special look is available to fans worldwide on TheBeatles.com and streaming on Disney+.”

Did you know that Peter Jackson was making a new documentary about the recording of the final Beatles album?

I sure did not!

It’s not my favorite album of theirs by a long shot, but the man has exclusive access to 54 hours (!) of footage shot during the recordings.

This snippet certainly looks more fun and upbeat than the notorious Let It Be documentary originally released.

Making the rounds and deservedly so.

Also: it really makes me miss John Lennon so much more.

“Nothing Else Matters” – Oona BROWN & Gage BROWN skate to @Metallica & @Marlisa

“Oona and Gage Brown are Team USA Ice Dancers. We filmed their 2020-21 Free Dance in Bryant Park’s Winter Village ice rink at 6:45 in the morning over the Thanksgiving holiday. Thank you to their coach Joel Dear for helping to organize.”

The arrangement makes it seem like the song was written by Enya. 🙂

An interesting choice for a figure skating routine.

Next: Do “Master of Puppets”!

Well there we go: Friday Videos! All done!

I hope your Friday, and your Christmas, and your Holidays, are all fantastic.

Thanks for following along all year. We’re going to get through this. What a terrible year.

See you next week I sure hope.

Merry Christmas!

Happy Friday!
