Snag it here.

Streaming! It's the present and future. So here's the obligatory Spotify playlist...

However, not all songs I used are licensed for the service, so the only way to get the full AVMC experience is to download it. But this will do in a pinch.

The kids these days love their YouTubes, what with their hippin' and their hoppin' and their bippin' and their boppin', so new this year I created a YouTube playlist:

Watch it above or go here. Again, some songs are missing. *sigh*

You can grab some previous editions of AVMC above in the "Merry Mixmas" tab. In the coming week I'll try to reupload broken downloads, as well as post the Spotify and YouTube links there. (Please let me know if anything is taken down, which will likely happen if it catches notice of aylor-Tay ift-Sway.)

Whew! Now that this is finally out in the world it's time for me to knock back a beer - preferably one that's appropriately seasonally spiced - and watch some Christmas episodes of The Office. I hope you enjoy this year's mix.

You'll be easily prone to fainting spells, too.

My annual It's a Wonderful Life viewing, albeit a bit late. Remember, ladies: hook up with that big hearted, goofy guy who's barely scraping by or risk becoming a... spinster librarian? Also your vision will be bad for some reason? That can't be right.

Happy New Year!

I want your midnights/But I'll be cleaning up Oreos with you on New Year's Day

A Christmas lifehack

Wait until the post-Christmas clearance sale to buy that sweet mug you really want from Starbucks.

I like 'em round and big.

My biggest Christmas revelation: apparently I've been given a second nickname by certain family members. It's a bit of a head scratcher because, while I certainly appreciate a large posterior - scout's honor! - I'm decidedly a breast man. Weird.

Get behind me, Santa!

Micah: 0, Winter weight: 1

MILF on the Shelf: Day 25

You got me the greatest gift of all: pancakes with crispy edges. Thanks, MILF! Merry Christmas!

I like carols you've never even heard of.

I've always enjoyed carols' third and fourth verses, which tend to get less mainstream airplay. Does that make me a Christmas hipster?

Aaaaaaaaand Santa!

Why did no one ever tell me that Dave Foley of the Kids in the Hall (and NewsRadio!) once put a Christmas special? I just found out about Dave Foley's The True Meaning of Christmas Specials today when the KITH Facebook page posted an article about it. I gave it a watch and it's funny! And if you've got a hankering to see some KITH and SCTV alums, Mike Myers, and a bunch of other notable Canucks, it's essential viewing.

MILF on the Shelf: Day 24

You sit on a throne of lies, MILF.

Do not put this on your flapjacks.

Heads up, millenials. Cracker Barrel has gotten into the hipster vinyl game *and* they have exclusive gimmicks.

MILF on the Shelf: Day 21

Um, I don't think that's going to sit well, MILF.

I'm hung.

No self-respecting southerner uses instant grits *or* hangs an evergreen wreath. After years of wanting one, I finally have a magnolia wreath to greet all the merrymakers that show up at my doorstep. My friend Suzanne made it for me and only asked for a bottle of prosecco. (A self-respecting southerner would've requested a bottle of Old Crow.)

MILF on the Shelf: Day 20

You found last year's tannenbaum, MILF! Hmmm. It's going to take a *lot* of love to bring that thing back.

Put a candy cane in that appletini.

I commemorate the holiday season each year by purchasing a new ornament. A few weeks ago I was perusing World of Mirth's wares when I saw... a Zach Braff Christmas ornament. Why does this exist?! Who would sell such a thing, let alone make it? At once I knew that it had to be this year's ornament. Now I just wish there was one of Brown Bear I could hang up next to it.

MILF on the Shelf: Day 17

Live long and phone home, MILF!

MILF on the Shelf: Day 16

That ramen looks like it would pair well with an eggnog-asaki, MILF.
