In the mood for a creepy and absolutely fucking weird Christmas movie? Check out Santa Claus (1959). You’ll get everything to help celebrate the holiday including Jesus, Satan, Merlin, Santa, and of course his helpers who are a handful of kidnapped children of various ethnics and third world cultures! You can probably find this movie on Netflix, but if you can’t, don’t worry, it might be best that you never see it. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Took this over the summer in Salzburg. There used to be a nasty lady in the background, but luckily someone with Photoshop skills made her disappear.

Instead of telling our young people to plan ahead, we should tell them to plan to be surprised.

Longest title currently on Tumblr. I miss Steve Carell being on The Office, so I decided to watch this. This is such a perfect movie for the fall season. It’s full of the best B list actors and has a great soundtrack by Sondre Lerche. The story is that of a male widow who is frequently asked for life advice by strangers but tends to struggle with his own life; particularly his relationship with his family. The cringing heartfelt comedy is spot-on - not quite Ben Stiller underdog cringe but just enough to feel empathy for Dan Burns. Go watch it and enjoy it. Or I will slit your throat.

Mason Jennings

—Fighter Girl

I’ve always loved Mason Jennings’ distinctive voice and his folky sound. I put all of what he’s done higher than Jack Johnson and Matt Costa. Enjoy Fighter Girl from his seventh album In The Ever, then go listen to his newest album Minnesota, which released yesterday.
