What do you want from me? I’m a slow study, plus I’ve been busy eating all the meat in the Midwest and napping. Well, NO MORE! It’s taken a whopping 17 days, but the power and glory of the almighty Beyoncé’s Visual Album has officially crept into the contours of my brain like one of her intricately gilded thongs. Thanks to my new mentor, I am emboldened towards and horny for 2014 a whole two days early, armed with the following new set of standards:

It’s back: Our annual post asking which gift made you cheer or cry in complete happiness. (If you don’t believe the latter happens, you should have seen me open up a Dukes of Hazzard TV dinner tray four Christmases ago. It was like the one I had when I was a child. Instant tears.)
The best entertainment-themed present of the 2013 holidays for me was a Sons of Anarchy fleece throw blanket (pictured). Thanks, mom. I enjoy this new tradition — last year, she got me an equally badass George Jones throw. READ FULL STORY

'Don't forget Kwanzaa!': Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire on the 'Between Two Ferns' Christmas Spectacular -- VIDEO
It’s time for the “Happy Holidays edition of Between Two Ferns!” For his 2013 Christmas Spectacular, Zach Galifianakis welcomed guests “Samue L. Jack’s Son” and “Toby,” better known as Samuel L. Jackson and Tobey Maguire.
The interview itself didn’t focus as much on holiday questions as it did Jackson’s career choices — namely Turbo and Snakes on a Plane — and Maguire’s, well, he was there. However, in the spirit of Christmas, Galifianakis did give them both a gift: A copy of his film The Campaign, which Maguire autographed and gave back.
And to top off a successful show, Galifianakis welcomed Arcade Fire to sing “Little Drummer Boy.”
Watch the wonderfully awkward holiday episode (complete with snow!) below: READ FULL STORY
Michael Bublé is back with his third annual Christmas special (airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC), and this year’s guests are Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, whose bedazzled mic is truly something to behold. “I felt so unimportant,” Bublé jokes. “No, it was funny, we actually had a laugh about it, her and I. I like that the girls have bedazzled mics. I saw Katy Perry’s mic the other night behind the scenes at a show we were both doing together, it was glorious. They actually look like they have special powers. I expect to see it in, like, Lord of the Rings or something. Gandalf could use the s–t out of that thing.” In the hour, which also features a running gag with Cookie Monster, Bublé takes a few requests — and he insists he wasn’t just waiting to hear audience members say whatever he was planning to play next. “You just need to look at my musicians’ eyes and how big they are,” he says, “because half the songs that we sang, I don’t think they knew. We just faked it. It was really nice to have those spontaneous moments. It was something we did in about 20 minutes. I found a lot of inspiration in how much fun [the audience] had singing with me. Everybody was really in the spirit. There was even one of the ugliest Christmas sweaters I’ve ever seen, which was so much fun for me. It was so ugly, and I was so excited to get to talk about it.”
Below, we quiz Bublé with our Christmas Song Questionnaire. Read his responses, then give us yours. READ FULL STORY
