In Dec. '05, garage punk and power pop luminary Gentleman Jesse and Die Slaughterhaus scrambled missed the deadline to get a Christmas 7-inch out in time for the holidays. That record is now the only piece of Gentleman Jesse vinyl that hasn't demanded a repress, and it is good. | more...

I thought I was going to have an experience out of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas yesterday. I was taking my daughter to "Breakfast With Santa" at her kindergarten, and the first thing I saw when we pulled into the parking lot was a hearse, because the church part of the building was having a funeral that morning. It made me flash on Jack Skellington and his coffin-shaped... | more...

Beloved Atlanta performer Libby Whittemore brings her cabaret act – and loyal fan base – back to Actor's Express for Ho Ho Home for the Holidays and A Connie Sue Day Christmas from Dec. 6-21. For years Whittemore honed the show with longtime music director Robert Strickland at the now closed club Libby's, A Cabaret. A self-described "Christmas idiot," Whittemore sings secular holiday standards... | more...

One of the most beloved — and refreshingly soft-spoken — animated TV specials ever made, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" airs on ABC tonight at 8 p.m. The first cartoon version of Charles M. Schulz's "Peanuts" comic strip was broadcast in 1965 and featured many unusual touches, such as the casting of children (many of them inexperienced) as voice actors, the Vince Guaraldi jazz-piano... | more...

If you didn't get your fill of chocolate at Halloween, several adventurous brewers are making it easy to get your chocolate fix at the same time you get your beer fix. Germans have long enjoyed chocolate with their beer, but since the appearance of the Reinheitsgebot in 1516, they haven't been permitted to put chocolate in their beer. Dogfish Head brewer Sam Calagione's disdain for the... | more...

Julian Koster isn't a carpenter. But if you invite him to your house, he'll show you how he makes a saw sing.

As one might expect from the man behind the machines that make up the Music Tapes, he believes the tools have minds of their own. Saws aren't made to sing, they're encouraged. Using a child's violin bow, Koster encourages his saws to burst into song by patting them gently.

Koster will...

With Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa still in theaters, I thought I'd devote today's calendar entry to "A Christmas Caper," DreamWorks' 10-minute spin-off film that appeared as an extra on the DVD release of the original film in 2005. (Apparently it was also attached to Curse of the Were-Rabbit.) It showcases by far the funniest characters in the Madagascar films and, frankly, is one my favorite... | more...

It takes courage to put on a show that pays homage to Vincent Guaraldi's much beloved score to "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and do it justice. Since 1965, the San Francisco jazz pianist's accompaniment to Charles Schulz's cartoon special has become a seasonal classic.

The songs are anything but easy to play. But when Jeffrey Bützer explains that he has always wanted to put on a Christmas show,...

English funnyman Rowan Atkinson is one of the last, best practitioners of old-school physical comedy and sight gags, which have won him international fame through his bumbling man-child alter ego, Mr. Bean. Mr. Bean: The Ultimate Collection, which goes on sale today, is one of those unbelievably exhaustive DVD sets that gathers seemingly every Bean appearance and piece of pop ephemera in... | more...

Of all the versions of the Scrooge stories on stage this season, Dad's Garage's Invasion: Christmas Carol is the only one where you'll hear words like "bacne" or "turduckephant."

Created by the theater's improv ensemble and directed by Dan Triandiflou, the Christmas Carol satire rejiggers the "invasion" concept the theater used in last year's Invasion: Our Town. Both shows turn a theatrical...
