Christmas thread, 2008

I always look forward to the annual Christmas posts here at Special X, but this year there's hardly been a peep.

I guess I'll kick things off with a few tunes for the Christmas party.

One of my faves from Trans Siberian Orchestra:

Especially for you, Slade:

Only Alice Cooper could make Christmas spooky:

Last year I started a Christmas thread that got ignored. Then Slade started one later on that saw some action. I've been waiting for Slade to start one up.

I'll merge my other Christmas-related thread into this one, and delete the other thread.

I can't remember which one of my fellow female Sladists it was (although, I think it may have been slyragz) that had been searching for the song "Little Christmas Stocking With A Hole In The Toe" for quite some time, and posted about it in the past, but, it can be found on the zip file at this Rapidshare link:

After only being able to find the lyrics for it online for so long, now I've finally heard what the music for it is like ... and I like it! :D

Cute. I like Bill Nighy, but I much prefer his work in the film "Still Crazy". Now THAT'S a film you can watch over and over again without getting bored with it.

Here's my favourite from a motion picture:

Margaret O'Brien really steals the show in the film.


I still haven't managed to get my hands on a copy of Robert Devereaux's "Santa Steps Out". Is anyone here doing an annual Christmas read of it yet?


I wonder how long it will take Slade to show up with some of his eggnog?

Soon, Mbwun. I'm working on the Website, that's why I'm relatively quiet. This will be the Official Special Xmas 2008 Thread.

Yes, WS. The bourbon bottle is on the sideboard.

I was going to share a very special Christmas song with my fellow Sladists, but apparently YouTube doesn't have "Here Comes Fatty with a Sack of Shit" (No, it's real, you gotta believe me. Look it up for yourself).

Yes, it was slyragz.
I remember posting the lyrics for her several years ago, when rapidshare was justing starting and before youtube even existed.

Hopefully, she'll drop by for the holidays.

I was going to suggest you try your eggnog Southern style this year and substitute bourbon for rum.
A stout batch is sure to give you that Christmas "glow".

It's possible I may even let one foot drag off the wagon this year. :twisted:

Here's one of my hard rockin' Christmas favorites. I listen to this particular tune any time of year because I love the solo so much.

Who says Christmas music can't rock?

And Slade, once you're really in the Christmas spirit, you'll be wanting to crank this up:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20Z9AqQMJew

"We write these words now, many miles distant from the spot
at which, year after year, we met on that day, a merry and joyous
circle. Many of the hearts that throbbed so gaily then, have
ceased to beat; many of the looks that shone so brightly then,
have ceased to glow; the hands we grasped, have grown cold; the
eyes we sought, have hid their lustre in the grave; and yet the old
house, the room, the merry voices and smiling faces, the jest,
the laugh, the most minute and trivial circumstances connected
with those happy meetings, crowd upon our mind at each
recurrence of the season, as if the last assemblage had been but
yesterday! Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the
delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the
pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the
traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fireside and
his quiet home!"

The Pickwick Papers - Charles Dickens


Merry Christmas! Happy holidays!

OHHH God Dreab... http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=yt-K5w1PFMo that made me laugh on the day Rachel Nicole's killer was finally solved, that made feel happy. I myself never believed It was Colin Stagg...and I was right. Sixteen years ago I said he wasn't her killer and I was the only lone voice when I was in the company of cops, they said I was mad, I said if everything points to him, I get suspicious, very. I was right then...Wonder what the lads are thinking now.

Thanks again.

:lol: :lol: I'd never drive home that, if I'm any judge they all well remember and probably glad I'm not there.! Don't know why 'cause I'd only say the "the truth will out" and NO-ONE would argue the toss with that; and have the drinks on me for the night. I never hold grudges waste of time...Still have that part with me. Thank God.

Nifty links those thanks again. :D

Mbwun, MM, steely, d.t., Hydebound, WS, isn't that carolers - I suppose that should be carollers, given the origin - at the door? Quick, invite them in for Slade's eggnog.
