A grab bag of Xmas goodies

Via Accordion Guy comes news of Lore Sjoberg’s musical project, Nine Inch Noëls. That’s right, kids, now you can listen to selected Nine Inch Nails lyrics set to a medley of Christmas tunes, such as Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Jingle Bell Rock, Little Drummer Boy, Jingle Bells, and, of course, Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

The globe-traveling Fallenmonk has compiled a handy list of seasonal greetings in a wide range of foreign languages. Just try to imagine Bush wishing Tom Jones Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda. Damn, he might even sound sober doing it.

Stranger at Blah3 offers some helpful real-life tips on YULcat-proofing your tree. Can you spot the kitty?

And this nifty device would make a terrific Secret Santa gift for the office Xmas party or a last-minute what-the-hell gift purchase for that AC/DC relative of yours who has every electro-gizmo hooked into his cigarette lighter/power port.
