Was I cracking on Mariah just last week for her Holiday special? I was. Am I forced to eat my words today? I most surely am. With figgy pudding on top. More on that later. First, some non-denominational Holiday cheer! Here are some dazzling close up looks at frost and snowflakes. (This Is Colossal)

In more somber news, music legend Dave Brubeck has passed away. Laughing Squid has a loving round-up of Brubeckian songs to honor the man. (Laughing Squid)

If I were in the business of flagging down cabs in New York City, I would throw all the elbows to have first crack at this DeLorean beauty. (BF)

Slash Film has the first look at Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield (aka Hugo) in Ender's Game. Hmmm, I love the book but this looks a little too Hunger Games-y to me. Yes I am basing that impression off of one image. Why do you ask? (/Film)

Speaking of big sci-fi film projects, Patrick Stewart says that he and Ian McKellan are not, in fact, confirmed to return for the next X-Men movie. Damnit, Captain. (TMS)

My darling Amy Poehler was on Conan O'Brien and the two compared high school yearbook photos. Oh so many secrets in that hair, high school Amy Poehler. (TeamCoco)

On the opposite end of the vanity spectrum, here's Gwyneth Paltrow, photoshopped into oblivion, for "In Style." The cover is, indeed, Gollum-level CGI, but this shot from the interior isn't so bad. Does that glossy glimpse of macrobiotic thigh make you forgot about Country Strong? Just for a second? (T&L)

What does it say about me that I want one of the items on this list of 13 Terrible Christmas Presents For 13 Terrible People. Car powered espresso maker, you will be mine. Oh yes, you will be mine. (Inventor Spot)

I also lust after these dinosaur and zombie polo shirts. For the preppy geek in your life. (Nerd Approved)

For your consideration, here is John Waters' list of favorite movies from 2012. I, ah, I've only seen one of them. Who among you has been better about haunting your local art house cinema? (TFE)

And here is my absolutely favorite Christmas song as performed by Mariah Carey, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and some adorable kids. I've ruined more than one Holiday party by playing this song over and over, so enjoy it in your cubes, mates. (via Warming Glow)
