Whew, that's a relief. My staff couldn't come up with any Christmas themed songs. Heard any lately?  Wink

To be fair, Arthur Christmas actually a pretty fun little movie, well-able to hold its own in the middle of a movie season that is being ridiculously good to kids and families, and actually has a kind of SF-ish take on Santa's operation toward the beginning.  However, I'm pretty sure that Christmas is the last thing I need in February.

And it's pretty clear that people in general seem to have a much broader definition of "steampunk" than I do, because I didn't think of that term at all when I saw that video in front of Arthur Christmas (and, yeah, I could have done without it).

Justin Bieber Ruins Entire Nerd Subculture With New Christmas Video

Musical haircut Justin Bieber has a new Christmas song, "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and the video is inexplicably steampunk-themed. Sorry, steampunks: time to get a new quirky aesthetic pastime before it blows up among 14-year-old Beliebers.
