Links from this week's episode:
- Want to see more from Area 5? Check out Call of Duty: Elite, the TEDx Golden Gate Park series, or grab the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary set.
- Our playlist of holiday favorites is up on Grooveshark.
- Carlos tells a heartwarming tale about getting presents in Animal Crossing.
- A beter selection of holiday films for you to enjoy: Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Trading Places, One Magic Christmas, Scrooge (the 1970 version), Scrooged, Bad Santa, and don't watch the terrible Jingle All the Way. It's not even bad enough to be good, if you know what I mean.
- On the web, check out the Star Wars Holiday Special. It's hard to find, and the quality is terrible, but it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
- Will Ferrell and John C. Riley made a shot-for-shot remake of the cheesy but lovely duet of Little Drummer Boy from Bing Crosby and David Bowie. Watch the original, then the remake, and try to figure out where to laugh.
