A Bleak Christmas Indeed December 10, 2018

As you all know, I’m all about the metrics, i.e., measurements that tell you how well something is doing. And for Christmas, there’s one key metric I use year after year:

Godzilla ornaments

You’ve got to ask yourself: “How much Godzilla can I shoehorn into my Christmas?”

Unfortunately, with the discontinuation of the annual Godzilla ornament release (WTH Hallmark/Carlton?) the Christmas spirit has taken a blow from which it may never recover.

Yes, friends, we’re going to have to live with the collection from 2005 – 2017, which is shown in my crappy photo below:

Try to have a great Christmas anyway.

Godzilla Christmas, 2016 December 24, 2016

It’s almost unavoidable. When you’re caught up in the hubbub of shopping, cooking, cleaning, and worshiping in your preferred way, it’s easy to forget that every year Carleton releases a commemorative Godzilla ornament. But I never forget, because Godzilla, with his atomic breath and city-destroying habits, reminds you to celebrate life amid the tragedy and suffering we wade through all year.

…plus they make really cool noises.

So please to enjoy the Godzilla family (together with last year’s King Ghidorah):

Godzilla Shin, featuring the biggest Godzilla everrrrrrr, is showing at select theaters from 10/11 to 10/18.

If you don’t live near one of those theaters, move closer to one of those theaters.

You’ve got two weeks.

Godzilla Resurgence was released last month in Japan, and may be released in the US later this year. The movie prompted one Noger Chen to put together a comparison of all the Godzillas since 1954.

Have a slice of awesome:

You’ll note that this year’s version is more than 10 meters taller than the 2014 version, which is almost 8% more atomic goodness than ever before.

It’s like the Onion, if the Onion focused on American Christian culture and was actually funny most of the time. A friend of mine who used to be the music minister at my church turned me on to it a few weeks back and now I find myself checking it regularly for new content. It’s probably not funny to people who don’t spend much time around  Christians, but I usually find stuff I want to share with my friends at least once a week.

 

Trigger Warning: If you like Donald Trump, Benny Hinn or Joel Osteen, you might not like the humor. They’re frequently part of the jokes since so many Christians have opinions, often conflicting, on them.

NASHVILLE, TN—Taking inspiration from grim Hollywood reboots like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, B&H Kids announced Wednesday that it would be relaunching the Bibleman series of superhero stories in a dark and gritty resurrection of the purple-and-gold caped crusader.

“While previous Bibleman encounters have seen the titular hero happily dispatching villains intent on destroying the church and the Word of God, this time Bibleman is really taking the gloves off. The Israelites didn’t show mercy to the Midianites, and neither will the new-and-improved Bibleman to his foes. We’re talking blood and guts galore,” the statement released by B&H Kids stated in part.

Grossly Premature Christmas Ornament Fun September 29, 2015

I normally refuse to blog about Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but CNET made me violate my principles with this image:

kirkspock

Yep, that’s the scene from the end of Wrath of Khan, where Spock sacrifices himself for “the many.” In fact, that’s the name of the ornament: The Needs of the Many Ornament.

While I’m on the subject, the 2015 Godzilla ornament isn’t too impressive:

But check out King Ghidorah!!

Oh yeah.
