I just happened to have had time to finish this Christmas project now, in February, so I’m posting it rather than waiting till next Christmas and forgetting. I had written parody lyrics for Christmas carols and songs 2009, and thought it’d be fun to get back at it in 2016. However, I seem to be a tad rusty and slow so I only started one and finished it over a month late. Still, I think it was fun and I will be singing this next Christmas, along with the others I had written before and linked to at the end of this post. In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this one that is a parody to The Christmas Song, as beautifully sung by Nat King Cole in the video below. The parody lyrics is below the video. 🙂
When I went out for my run at 10 AM this morning (Saturday October 22nd), I noticed the choppers were constantly flying relatively low overhead in the Halifax South End. When I got to Point Pleasant Park, I noticed they were flying just above the tree line out on the water next to the park, and did the same thing along the waterfront. Seemed like some serious military exercise was going on!
Being a spy for the Chinese, I got the call to get my digital SLR down to the waterfront for some high shutter speed shots (1/8000th of a second) of what was going on. Turns out, it was all for fun cause there were kids and adults hanging out the opened side doors of these things as they flew by. Must have been Family Day at CFB Shearwater or something.
Jokes aside, though, those helicopters did some questionable maneuvers, in my opinion, as shown below. Continue reading
In late January, I proposed a Facebook meme to share a love song a day for February that contains Valentine’s Day.
Here were the first, second and third sets of seven songs I had shared.
Below is the fourth and final set of seven great love songs I shared, with some short commentary for each. Actually, for the Februaries with 29 days, I’ve included a bonus song.
The King’s Speech just won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2011, besting out the character assassinating fictional drama The Social Network. And to that, I say Amen, even if I’m not Christian.
Until December 6th, there is a global campaign on Facebook where people replace their profile pictures with their favourite cartoon character/s, then encourage their friends to do the same. Now this campaign I like! Too bad it’s way too short but it’s gone viral globally after just a day’s notice!
I’ve got over 250 cartoon pictures made for Facebook profile pics at the bottom, arranged in alphabetical order with names, which include some modern and some old cartoons.
