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

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.”

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, some holiday CHEESE: The opening scene from ‘Santa’s Slay (2005)’ !!

santas-slay.jpg
If you’re unfamiliar with the opening scene from 2005’s Santa’s Slay, GET FAMILIAR. This important piece of American cinema (shot in Alberta, Canada), that opens with a family celebrating Christmas (as portrayed by an all-Jewish cast) is perfect for too many reasons to count. According to the film’s Wikipedia:

Santa was the result of a virgin birth produced by Satan (just as Jesus was the result of a virgin birth produced by God- meaning that Santa is somewhat of an Antichrist). Christmas was “The Day of Slaying” for Santa until, in 1005 AD, an angel defeated Santa in a curling match and sentenced Santa to deliver presents on Christmas for 1000 years. This means that Santa is free to kill again in 2005.

We begin with a hot Kate Spade name-drop, and Fran Drescher in a role she was familiar with at the time — a woman with a gay husband, played by Mango Chris Kattan. Her real-life ex-husband of 18 years later came out as gay, but don’t worry — Fran is laughing these days! Not only did she beat cancer and write a New York Times Best-Seller, but she’s also dating the CREATOR OF EMAIL. GET IT, HONNAY!

90’s scream queen Rebecca Gayheart is also in this mess, and Santa is portrayed by none other than WWF wrestler Goldberg (as voiced by an 18 year old Lindsay Lohan after a big weekend.) Give yourself the gift of fine cheese and check out the opening scene from 2005’s Santa’s Slay below:
