What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve

A new year is almost here. A time of beginnings; a time of endings. What are you doing on New Year’s Eve?

It might be a bittersweet reunion with an old lover.

Same Old Lang Syne – Dan Fogelberg

From: debipisces

Taxi – Harry Chapin

From: Lewismadmax

Or maybe you think that you are tired of your old lover, only to discover that you don’t really know them that well after all.

Escape (The PiƱa Colada Song) – Rupert Holmes

From: mikewoo1992

This is a project I had to do for school, we were to arrange pictures to a piece of music.

Or maybe someone new will want to meet you!

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve – Diana Krall

From: fastfocustv

Backed by the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, the Canadian-born vocalist Diana Krall fills up the tempo of the song with holiday cheer. Her sound so intimate that you might swear the sexy singer is crooning exclusively for you at midnight on Christmas Eve. Krall excels with an approach mastered long ago: elegant delivery that gives extra polish to a very familiar global favorite. This segment takes you through a Diane Krall performance of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve". Credits:

But you might find the right person, or at least it will seem that way at first.

Fairytale of New York – The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl

From: rosa1987

After all, it’s just another New Year’s Eve!

It's Just Another New Year's Eve – Barry Manilow

Barry Manilow sings, and Steve & Kayla act it out. I figured out who Steve & Kayla are. They are not Snake Plissken and Barbara Mandrell, they are from Days of Our Lives. No wonder I never heard of them.

The Star Wars Holiday Special

Originally uploaded by Johnny Dollar

I never watched this when I was young; I think I was busy that night, maybe watching Happy Days, or One Day at a Time. :)

For more information on the special, go to Wikipedia.

If you don’t want to watch the whole show, or you just want to get an idea about what it was about, here it is in five minutes.

The Two-Hour Star Wars Holiday Special in only Five Minutes!


Happy Holidays 2007! The Late Night Explosion is proud to present, from 1978, The two-hour Star Wars Holiday Special cut down to five festive minutes. Happy Life Day!

Here is the “short” version of Star Wars Holiday Special from CommanderCyclops.

Star Wars Holiday Special: Now with subtitled Wookie dialog! Bea Arthur/Harvey Korman/Jefferson Starship free!

This aired once, and only once, in 1978. I added in all those subtitles myself, so try to imagine long scenes of wookies just grunting at each other, plus lots of other time wasters that dragged it out to two hours. You can probably find the full version somewhere on YouTube if you really want to torture yourself.

Christmas Fun Music

So, what do these videos have in common? They’re all about Christmas, they mostly use synthesizer keyboards, and some use stop motion. And they all are fun!

Deck Them Halls

From: Dosswerks

I put a lot of work into programming this rendition of the Mannheim Steamroller version of "Deck The Halls", and I performed this live a couple of years ago on the legendary Casio AZ-1, so I figured I would try to make the best possible version of the performance and cast it into cyberspace. There's a cameo appearance by Thomas Dolby playing the same instrument. Can you spot him?

I Can't Believe it's Christmas

From: GiR2007

James Provan presents...
A stop motion music video about Christmas.

So, I have finished University for Christmas, and I finally had the time to make a new video. No robot voice this time, instead I asked my friend Rachel for help, and she sang in the video! She is a very good singer.

Song was written by me, all of the filming and stop motion, as well as editing was done by me. Rachel helped with some lyrics too =)

Special thanks to my family for putting up with cameras everywhere, and for dancing like idiots =)

"Julebal i Nissebal" - on Two CASIO Toy Keyboards

From: organfairy

In my student days I couldn't afford a real organ or synth. So I bought some cheap toy keyboards - some of them even second hand - and connected them to an old mixer. One of the keyboards I had fitted with a plug so I could connect it to an old pedal box from a scrapped organ via a thick cable. The song I'm playing is from a Danish Christmas movie and is written by Sven Gyldmark.

What Is Christmas About?

Christmas for Christians is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Luke 2:8-14 (King James Version)

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Charlie Brown Christmas

From: wteach

Why Christmas Now?

It’s dark this time of year, and cold outside. So, we might get the blues this time of year.

Christmas Blues - Dean Martin

From: Carali1984

Christmas is a time to cheer us up.

We Need a Little Christmas – Percy Faith

Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again
Fill up the stocking
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now

For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Candles in the window
Carols at the spinet

No, Christmas is also a nonsectarian holiday. R2D2 and C3PO celebrate it.

Some More Blending Fun

I love “Will it Blend.” It’s fun to watch them destroy items that I would never think of breaking myself.

Will It Blend? - Guitar Hero III

Even though I suck at Guitar Hero III, I still wouldn’t do this to it. It costs too much!

From: Blendtec.

As far as guitar based video games go, Guitar Hero easily cracks the top three. Unfortunately they left the Beach Boys off the game, and you know what that

Will It Blend? - Ice Into Snow

It would be fun to be able to make my own snow. Maybe I should get one of these blenders?

From: Blendtec.

See what happens when a Blendtec blender is loaded with nothing but ice.

Will It Shred? - Pepsi Can

Here someone else does some shredding. I wonder if my shredder can do that? No, on second thought, I wonder if the shredder at work can do that?

From: antoinasia

Got the shredder I really, really wanted for Xmas.

Peanuts Christmas

Snoopy Snow
Originally uploaded by hulubberluhu

One of my favorite Christmas movies is “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Even in 1965, when the movie came out, they talked about the over-commercialization of Christmas. At least we don’t have aluminum Christmas trees anymore. (I hope!)

[Linus knocks on an aluminum Christmas tree, which gives a metallic "clank"]
Linus: This really brings Christmas close to a person.
Charlie Brown: [gazes in amazement] Fantastic.
