Gifts for Him and Her


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I gave you a chance to ask for what you wanted this holiday season. Hundreds of you responded, but only one of you… actually, TWO of you were given a gift. We’ll do this again next year, assuming our community continues to grow.

The first winner was Kari, who asked for a digital camera for her stepdad. Apparently, her camera was stolen somewhere on her college campus recently. So, her stepdad didn’t think twice, and gave his camera to her so she’d have one. Kari didn’t ask for something for herself. She asked for something for another person, which is why I chose her as a winner. Her video was very touching, and her intentions were very good.

The other winner is long-time community member Ron Knights. Ron asked for financial help to go visit his elderly parents for the holidays. I believe Ron himself lives clear up in Maine, and his parents are in Atlanta, Georgia. Living on a fixed income, it’s difficult for Ron to make the trip on his own. I’m more than happy to help out, so that they can spend some time together. Ron also posted a follow-up thank you video last night. That made his winning even more special for me!

I had a great time going through all of the videos. It was a tough choice, to be sure. Thank you to everyone who entered. I appreciate your support!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

It’s officially Christmas Eve in some parts of the World right now, and only a few hours away here in Seattle!! Santa and I go wayyy back – all the way to my childhood. When I found out that the Jolly Elf himself was going to be live streaming this year, I had to get in on the action. After all, this is what I DO! So, I contacted Santa up at the Pole, and proposed an offer he couldn’t refuse. We hooked up via the Intertubez in order to tell all of you: “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night”

I have to thank my friend and long-time community member Databrokers for hooking Santa up with the stream this year. It’s thanks to Databrokers and his squirrels that Mr. Claus was able to show up online to talk with everyone. I’m told that he made the front page of Ustream earlier tonight, and pulled in just under 40,000 viewers for the night!

I meant what I said earlier in this post. From Pixie, Wicket and myself… Happy Christmas to all.

Santa Claus Email


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Santa sent me a video email! Can you believe it?! I didn’t know he did things like this! Oh, I hope I’m on the Nice list! I’ve tried so hard to be good this year. I only asked Santa for one thing. If I’m lucky, I’ll find it in my stocking on Christmas morning!

Wait, what? Santa says I haven’t been good enough? That is a load of hooey! I’ve been a model citizen this whole year! I’ve been good, I swear it! What’s the deal?! That list is rigged, I’m telling you. Someone is telling lies about me!

Are you on the naughty list – or the nice list? What do you think you’ll find in your stocking on Christmas?

A Christmas Story


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Even though I’ve seen the movie a million times now, I still need to watch “A Christmas Story” every year. I don’t have the lines memorized or anything, but… it’s as much a tradition as egg nog and flying lugnuts.

JibJab is so much fun! You really should try it yourself sometime!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

It’s a Wonderful Life

Have you ever actually watched the entire movie? I did – once. It is a wonderful life, but it would be so much more wonderful if they updated the movie with 3D effects and Dolby Surround Sound.

JibJab is so much fun! You really should try it yourself sometime!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Christmas Tree Fun


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Last year I had a lot of fun making a holiday video with my face in it by using JibJab. Hundreds of you responded with your own JibJab video. I’m hoping you’ll do the same again this year! Let’s see what everyone comes up with!

JibJab is so easy to use, and a lot of fun! A lot of people prefer to “Elf” themselves. You can upload as many as five pictures, and turn those into little elf people who then dance around all crazy. It’s hilarious to watch, and brings a smile to the faces of people you email the dance to!

Whether you create a JibJab of your own or not – I hope you have a happy, safe and healthy holiday season.

The Gift of Giving


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

The season of giving is now upon us. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you still like to receive gifts, right? You’re in luck… I love to give gifts – and I want to give some to YOU!

This holiday, you have a chance to win a gift from me. This is open to anyone in the world, no matter where you live. Post a video response on YouTube (NOT here on the blog) to this video. Tell me what you want, and why you deserve the gift. It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate – or even if you celebrate anything at all. What matters is that you have a need or wish, and that you are willing to leave a video response to tell me what it is. You don’t have to be a professional videographer or come up with the funniest few moments ever recorded. I’m looking for sincerity, people who I feel will truly benefit from whatever it is they ask for.

I don’t care what religion you are (or aren’t!), what your background is, or even what your ethnicity is… you still have a chance to win! I will be choosing a winner live on the stream on Christmas Day – December 25th. Everyone deserves a little happiness and sunshine in their life. It doesn’t matter if YOU celebrate Christmas – I do, and this is how I am choosing to honor the day this year… by giving back to my community.

Happy Holidays everyone!

What Toy Would You Want for Christmas?

I admitted in a video earlier today that I still enjoy playing with LEGO Bricks. I also apparently still like the Lite Brite!

There’s nothing wrong with occasionally letting your inner child come out to play when you’re a grown-up. I personally think it can help keep you sane and stress-free if you let your hair down once in awhile, and take the time to remember what it’s like to play. What do you do during occasions like these? Do you indulge yourself with crayons? Do you prefer to duke it out with action figures?

What toys do your inner child still love to play with?
