It’s only a week away from Christmas and many are getting into the holiday spirit with a little mood music in the form of Christmas carols. While it’s rare to receive a knock at the door and be met with a host of neighborhood carolers in wintertime serenade, many holiday revelers get their Christmas music fix from traditional legends like Bing Crosby, Johnny Mathis and Mel Torme.

However, a new tradition has made an indelible mark on the yuletide season that influences all who listen to remember the reason for the season.

By Troy Beckman
December 16, 2010

Boasting chiseled square jaw lines, prominent cleft chins and severe bouts of nasty attitudes, punk and metal legendGlenn Danzig, and Real Housewife of New York Bethenny Frankel share more than coincidental genetic traits — indications show that they may in fact be brother and sister.

Not only do they look like brother and sister, they share many of the same qualities and personality traits — for better or worse — that reveal an undeniable link that points to imminent siblinghood.

2010 was another good year for live music. Many of us have seen at least a few shows here or there, and some of us have spent more time in front of towering stacks of PA speakers than with the very persons we claim to love. While tastes and genres may vary from show to show, there are a few undeniable truths and dynamics present at almost every club, concert hall or arena — no matter who is playing that night. The live music experience is defined — and measured — by the way fans react to the performance, and music of any kind has the ability to trigger piloerection(that means to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, not what those of you with your mind in the gutter might think).

Palin is the latest self-proclaimed “grizzly” to gain its own television show, preceded by Gentle Ben, Grizzly Adams and Yogi Bear.

If being the face of the Tea Party Movement and its far-right agenda wasn’t enough to satisfy Sarah Palin’s unquenchable desire to be in front of a camera, then something must be wrong, right? Turns out, this assumption is correct.  And we should be afraid.

Sarah Palin is launching a new reality television show this fall.

“Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is set to run for eight weeks, offering viewers the opportunity to see more of “Mama Grizzly” on the TV screen—this time, in her natural habitat.

“These Boots Weren’t Made for Walking: A Guide to Women’s Fall Fashion”

Fall is officially here, which means it is officially Boot Season. I know what you’re thinking.  “A post about fashion?  Here?”  Believe me; I am with you on this one.  I do not claim to be an expert on fashion and freely admit I know nothing about the subject–and I relish this ignorance.  But I am observant.  I know what I like and, most importantly, what I don’t like.  That’s what we’re here to talk about today.  Women’s footwear…Boots.

I admit, I was—and still am—a fan of certain types of women’s boots.  Knee-high black leather boots are particularly nice, especially when paired with a short skirt (for some reason).  This look more than adequately lends itself to visions of a top-secret female Russian spy—complete with heavy accent and a plan to forcefully seduce her unsuspecting male prey on the cold streets of Moscow.  But from that foundation of Sexy Spy, a conglomeration of fur, fleece, fringe, glitter and suede has obliterated the fine balance between form and function–and more importantly, the notion of being seduced.
