My favorite piece of Christmas music of all, from the best Christmas album ever recorded. As proven by science. Probably. 🎄
One of the best moments in all of the Peanuts holiday specials is the epic battle between Snoopy and the lawn chair in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Plus, the backdrop is one of Vince Guaraldi’s best tunes as well: “Little Birdie”.
A few days early, but there’s never a bad time to share some great Vince Guaraldi music!
Two of my fandoms have collided again.
One of them is new. I don’t even remember how it got on my radar, but I recently discovered the series Dead Like Me (which originally aired in 2003), and I’m glad I did. It’s a series which breaks the mold a bit, being a “dramedy” about grim reapers, who appear as fairly normal people in the show’s world. The main character is Georgia Lass, an eighteen-year-old underachiever who meets an untimely end thanks to a toilet seat which falls from a Russian space station disintegrating in the atmosphere. Rather than moving on to the afterlife, she is destined to remain in limbo as a grim reaper, taking people’s souls before they die, so they feel no pain when it happens. Georgia leaves behind a family, including little sister Reggie.
After I finished watching Dead Like Me, I made a great discovery related to another big fandom of mine… My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. What is the connection? It seems little Reggie grew up to become none other than Twilight Sparkle’s sister-in-law: Princess Cadance!
Britt McKillip, who played Reggie Lass in Dead Like Me, is the voice of My Little Pony‘s Princess Cadance.
This was no coincidence. As soon as Will started walking towards that glowing door in Stranger Things 2, I knew exactly what scene was being recreated.
