Christmas Links #18



Christmas With BBC Records And Tapes:
"RESL124 Orville’s Song/I Didn’t – Keith Harris And Orville (December 1982)"

Born again: modernist design icons are given a new lease of life:
"While the hunger for new contemporary design continues, there is still something alluring about revisiting those lesser known chapters of 20th century design to uncover the stories of classic products and their creators."

The great vegan Christmas taste test: mains, desserts and party food:
"From root vegetables en croute to pigless blankets and festive jellies, vegans are spoilt for choice this Christmas. Just steer clear of the fake-meat roasting joints …"
[Editor's Note:  With a few exceptions, vegan food in supermarkets is unremittingly awful especially when it's trying to pretend to be meat.  Tonight I had the Spinach and Squash Lasagne from M&S and it was fine although the cheese was a bit sickly.  Full vegans, you have my sympathies.]

The Best Music Videos of 2019:
"Featuring bodybuilding, pole dancing, Terry Crews, John Early, and more Haim x Paul Thomas Anderson."

A brief history of the BBC Christmas Tapes:
"The BBC Christmas tapes make interesting, infuriating, amusing and depressing viewing… But are they any good?" [via LinkMachineGo]

UK weather: 70mph winds and rain to cause transport nightmare before Christmas:
"The Met Office is forecasting powerful gusts to develop across the South West, alongside heavy showers."

The 9 most commonly misheard Christmas carol lyrics:
"‘Joy to the World’, ‘12 Days of Christmas’ and ‘Deck the Halls’ have been found to be among the most misheard Christmas carols – and we can totally relate."
