    Well, it's the holidays and it would be neat to make a holiday thread. What to put in the thread? Well anything holiday related obviously. It has to be interesting or funny and if it's UO related then there's a HUGE bonus.

    I'll start it off with this pic of a gift I got from a friend. I don't have an obsession with moose or caramel/chocolate popcorn. But, I think Promathia may like this one. For those who don't know, Promathia is obsessed with moose (yes, that's a plural moose). I believe he plays a character named "That Moose" and also has a sig on the stratics forms that says "Moose Mafia". I also find it amusing that the package states "Delirious Snacks". Delirious meaning wild with excitement. Hence, Promathia's delirious obsession with moose.

    Here's some gargoyles chillin on top of some pillars in the holiday spirit. They are happy because they got bestial suits for their gifts.

    And here's the gargoyles after they went into dog form. I'm sure Virem would be pleased to know of these gargoyles.

    This appears to be a good place for my annual "The Mercury Theater on the Air" post.

    When I was in college I had a professor named Tom Olson. He was head of the Radio and Television department at Kent State University for many years. Tom really loved to talk about the old radio dramas of the 30s and 40s. He had many of them on reel-to-reel and he would share them with his students. For him it was a way to remember and talk about where the industry had come from, but more importantly I think it reminded him of his childhood and a simpler time. “Doctor O” or “T.O.” as many called him, passed away in 2002 and not long after I came across this site (The Mercury Theater on the Air) that has a number of the old radio dramas available for download. They are all in the public domain and therefore free to host, download and listen to. The site includes the famous/infamous War of the Worlds broadcast as well as many others. I have put a number of these on CD to listen to in the car while I commute to and from work and highly recommend them if you are so inclined.

    I post this link at this time of year because it also includes two excellent versions of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. This is one of my all-time favorite Christmas stories and I thought that some of you just might feel the same. The two A Christmas Carol shows were the inspiration for the classic black and white movie version. In fact one version features Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge. Barrymore may be best known for the role of Mr. Potter in It’s a Wonderful Life and was Drew Barrymore’s great-uncle.

    I hope some of you enjoy these with your family and friends over the next weeks, months and possibly years.

    Happy Christmas!
