New Year's Resolutions inspired by Beyonce's 'Visual Album'

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:

Netflix Yule Log gets epic trailer, totally serious director's commentary -- EXCLUSIVE

The most heart- and hearth-warming holiday offering on Netflix? That’d be the streaming site’s Fireplace for Your Home, a classic that’s tailor-made for anyone who wants all the joy of a crackling blaze without the fear of possibly condemning Santa to a fiery death.

Somehow still not sold? Then I suggest feasting your eyes on these newly-released DVD-style Fireplace, extras, starting with an appropriately weighty trailer — which comes complete with a Don LaFontaine-style voiceover and breathless praise from luminaries like… some guy named Bert. (His contribution: “Fireplace for your Home is about a fireplace in your home.”)

Apple’s new 90-second Christmas commercial just had me sobbing into my own iPhone as I went about my usual antisocial business of splaying out on the couch, ignoring this great big wondrous world around me, and playing with filters on Instagram. Here’s how good Apple commercials are: I didn’t even need to see this one to know I was already obsessed with it — much like your sulky teen won’t ever need to make real eye contact with his relatives to know and eventually show that he loves them (if you’re lucky) (and if you’ve purchased him an iPhone 5S).

Obviously, I did look up at one point… then replayed this commercial again and again. You wanna cry? READ FULL STORY

The holidays: A time for family, presents, eggnog, and to finally learn “What does the fox say?” Christmas-style. 

Besides competing to see which neighbor can rack up the highest electricity bill come January, folks all over the world prepare for this time of year by turning their yard into Santa’s workshop or a nativity scene. Some take it even further, adding a little pop-culture twist. This year, the Perkins family of Tulsa, Oklahoma, answered Ylvis’ question when they posted a light show synced to the Norway comedy duo’s viral sensation “The Fox.” Check it out here:
