Slayer, the legendary thrash metal band, released these awesomely hideous Christmas sweaters on their official merch site for $80. They’re all sold out now, but you can always hit up ebay and plop down a few Benji’s if you can manage to find one.
KILL IT WITH FIRE!: A Christmas Story 2 Trailer Will Make You Want To Shoot Your Eyes Out
I don’t care what anyone says. A Christmas Story is my absolute favorite movie of all time. I love the time period it takes place in. I love the language in the narration. And, most of all, I just love the story. It paints a perfect picture of what it was like to be a kid when the whole grown-up world was against you.
Well, Warner has decided that this classic needed a straight-to-video sequel with crappy acting and rehashed jokes from the original.
This time around, Ralphie wants a car instead of a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time. He get’s a job at Higbee’s with Flick and Schwartz, then things that are supposed to be funny (but totally aren’t) ensue.
Check out the trailer below.
Dammit, Daniel Stern! Home Alone 1 & 2 were classic Christmas movies. You should have been happy with that and turned this one down.
A Little Bit On The Sonic Side: The Good Smile Co. blog just released a bunch of pics of the new Sonic the Hedgehog Nendoroid. It comes with a all kinds of cool stuff like an item box (with changeable items!), different faces (a grumpy one, a smiley one, and a toothy grin one), a gold ring, a Chaos Emerald, a checkpoint thingamajig, and different appendages for maximum pose-itude.

A Little Bit On The Snow Sculptural Side: Redditor revivemorrison and his bros made this Triforce snow sculpture for the Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest in Charlottetown, PEI a few years ago. Something about this makes us wonder if there’s any Goatse snow sculptures out there…
Whether your Xmas is ruined by fighting family members, an itchy sweater from grams, or Nook Tablet instead of an iPad, Candy Cane Labbit will keep your holiday cheery. It’s so green! It’s 7 inches and only costs $16 at Kidrobot.
Yeah, yeah… Christmas is all about giving and blah blah blah, but we all know that receiving is a little bit more awesome. While I must admit that I gave some pretty rad gifts this year, I also received my fair share of radness in return.
Aside from the usual array of fresh duds, my personal X-mas loot highlights include a gift certificate to a local tattoo shop (about effing time I get that geeky sleeve started!) and Nintendo points from a good friend, super fresh Glow Graffiti from my brother, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption from my gf and her kids, and from the brownmum, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn a sweet Ion Discover USB DJ thinger. The DJ deal is the hottness and I’ve asked for a beginners turntable set every Christmas since I was about 13, but never got one. Luckily I have an awesome girlfriend who rules at giving my mom gift-giving suggestions.
But enough about my crap, what about yours? Let us know what you got in the comments!
