!! OMG, a card makes Christmas complete: Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Christmas Card’ Animation (1968) !!

231664011_640.jpg
Terry Gilliam, director of several cult classics like Brazil and Time Bandits, and known for his work on Monty Python made this awesome animation out of Victorian Christmas cards back in 1968. Here’s what Terry had to say about the making of this awesome, short animation:

Gilliam was asked to prepare something for a special show to be broadcast on Christmas day, 1968, called Do Not Adjust Your Stocking. Looking for inspiration, he decided to visit the Tate Gallery. In The Pythons: Autobiography by the Pythons, Gilliam remembered the project and how it figured into his emerging artistic style:
“I went down to the Tate and they’ve got a huge collection of Victorian Christmas cards so I went through the collection and photocopied things and started moving them around. So the style just developed out of that rather than any planning being involved. I never analysed the stuff, I just did it the quickest, easiest way. And I could use images I really loved.”

!! OMG, Thank God It’s Christmas: Freddie Mercury’s Lost Holiday Home Videos !!

1472761_574449912635542_1673220678_n.jpg
We came across this behind-the-scenes footage of Queen filming their second last video for “I’m Going Slightly Mad” with some penguins, along with personal home video taken by Freddie Mercury the morning after Christmas, hanging out with friends in his state-of-the-art late-1980’s house aka “The Garden Lodge”.
A woman that looks like the lovechild of Leslie Hall and “Margo” from Beyond The Black Rainbow chatting with some of Freddie’s friends, and Feddie’s cat Tiffany kind of steal the show in these tapes. Check out the vintage hi-8 clips after the jump, along with Queen‘s Xmas track “Thank God It’s Christmas”!

!! OMG, An 80’s Xmas Throwback: Pee-wee Herman & Bryan Adams’ “Reggae Christmas” Video !!


We love how blindly 80’s this Christmas throwback with Pee-wee Herman and Bryan Adams is.
The clip was shot in MTV studios in NYC, back in 1984 and stars a bunch of the original MTV faces. The dread hats are a nice touch, but we still feel like a true reggae Christmas would be much smokier. Check it out above!
