A Christmas goose. Ask Andrew Jones about his…
Today’s mashup topic is Christmas. Timely, huh? See what you can do with these —
- Tall Skinny Kiwi has a delightful post on his Christmas goose. I’m pulling for the goose myself.
- Out of Ur has more on the Reverend Billy and his Church of Stop Shopping. Reverend Billy poses the ancient question WWJB? (What would Jesus buy?)
- PSFK posts about the Non-Profit Shopping Mall. Good idea, especially at this time of year.
- boingboing has free Christmas plays on mp3, oldtime radio broadcasts free for the taking. Plus, click thru to the post and see the comments for more free Christmas audio stuff.
- Unsilent Night is back again this year. Unsilent Night is an art/music/culture mashup of hundreds of boom boxes playing coordinated tracks. Kind of the world’s largest music machine. Very creative idea that could be remixed for a church-type thing.
- Finally, Steve Collins at smallritual has the peace labyrinth promo video here. Gives new meaning to the term ‘stick people.’
Lots of Christmas goodies out there. My all-time favorite is John Henry Faulk’s Christmas Story. I heard John Henry Faulk in 1978 in Dallas, when I was a student at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. Faulk had been blacklisted as a commie during the McCarthy era. Edward R. Murrow helped Faulk regain his good name, win a lawsuit, and go back to being a writer and humorist. If you don’t know this Christmas story, you can read the transcript or download the audio at the NPR site.
