Deal Of The Day: Fresh Funky Christmas Music

Hot holiday tunes for those of you who don't want to spend the next month listening to shit like "The Christmas Shoes" and "Last Christmas." From Very Short List.

We’ve reached that critical juncture in the yuletide season when the novelty of hearing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Jingle Bells” everywhere you turn has not only worn off but is fast approaching serious bah-humbug territory. But we have a solution! Take a listen to the terrific compilation of funky, Motown-era ditties, In the Christmas Groove.

The album has 12 tracks, many of them obscure 45 B-sides from Christmases past. There’s the rollicking “Christmas Present Blues” by Jimmy Reed; the ’60s-drenched “Christmas Morning” by Zebra; the Soul Saints Orchestra’s bluesy “Santa’s Got a Bag of Soul”; and (our personal favorite) “Funky Funky Christmas” by Electric Jungle.

The songs are catchy, festive and—best of all—entirely fresh. Plus, Amazon is offering the whole album as MP3 downloads for just $5. Now there’s some of that Christmas spirit we were looking for.

Vid Of The Day: Oh Snap!

Nice job, girls.

Classic 80s Music Video Of The Day: Early

If you turned on a radio back in 1982 and this song wasn't playing, it was only because "You Dropped A Bomb On Me" was playing instead. I always thought The Gap Band was from the South, but they aren't. Think farther west. They share a hometown with Steve Largent, J.J. Cale, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Gailard Sartain.

Top Risqué 80s Movie Scenes Of The Day (NSFW)

From Maxim.com.

Porky's (1982)

Like Nerds, Porky's celebrates not those guys who actually get laid, but those guys who do things like peek through (or in some cases, insert things into) holes in the girls' shower wall. Any wonder we tend to relate to these guys more?

Fraternity Vacation (1985)

College guys pledge fraternities for one reason: The hope that their eventual trip to Daytona or Cabo or wherever will play out like Fraternity Vacation. Namely, an endless parade of feather-haired beauties with clothing allergies.

Twice Dead (1988)

This hidden rare gem features quite possibly the sickest 80s sex scene ever: A buxom hottie rides a dude on a vibrating bed, only to have the clumsy dolt spill beer on an exposed wire. He gets electrocuted, and she rides his squirming body to climax. Hot. And deadly.

Hot Dog: The Movie (1984)

In 80s terms, every single ski trip ever undertaken has devolved into an orgy of hot tubs and Playboy Playmates. Every. Single. One. Is it any wonder the sport became hugely popular all of a sudden? Sugarbush owes at least half of its earnings to this movie.

Police Academy (1984)

Ah, the infamous "podium BJ." Admit it, the first time you saw this movie you didn't quite get what that nice lady was doing to make that kindly old cop go cross-eyed. It's OK. You were young. Now, of course, no one of a certain generation can stand up and address an audience without getting a semi.

9 1/2 Weeks (1986)

The best use of food and a refrigerator since Zuul scared he bejesus out of Dana Barrett. 9 1/2 Weeks also harkens back to a time when Mickey Rourke played with leftovers, instead of looked like leftovers.

Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

Only in the 80s could a movie have you rooting for stalking and sexual harassment. The "nerds" unabashed violation of a sorority house probably created more freaky future online trolls than we care to think about.

Bachelor Party (1984)

For a movie about sex and debauchery, Bachelor Party is fairly chaste. That is, until Rick (Tom Hanks) discovers an ex waiting for him in the master bedroom. Moral conundrums don't look much better than this.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

The be-all, end-all of 80s spank bank memories. Puberty began the second Phoebe Cates emerged from that pool. Later that night, we all played the part of Judge Reinhold in our bathrooms.

And a few that Maxim forgot:

Dressed To Kill (1980)

If you've seen the movie, you know that this is one of the tamest frames I could have possibly used from this scene.

Class (1982)

I never saw this movie. Had I known it included a peek at Virginia Madsen's world-class rack, I might've.

Friday the 13th (1980)

The good news: lots of people get laid in this movie. The bad news: they all die.

Private School (1983)

Lots of shower scenes, just like Porky's. And Betsy Russell's ass.

My Tutor (1983)

My grades dropped after seeing this. Hey, a guy can dream.

Summer Lovers (1982)

Two girls, one guy, all naked in Greece.

What others are missing?


"WTF was I thinking when I ____________ ."

Let 'er rip, tater chip.

November Mugshot Roundup

Stone. Cold. Busted.

Hey you guys!

He never needs a napkin again

Her heart is cryin', cryin' lonely teardrops

"I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpanzee...."

Mel Gibson drinking disguise FAIL

"Corrí, corrí tan lejos..."

The Acutane goes on the zits, dumbass

Nothing could dampen Tonto's cheery outlook on life

Reminds me of Joan Cusack in Sixteen Candles

Two things he'll never get

You got the wrong guy, man. I'm The Dude.

Rolls of blubber: the painless alternative to tattoo removal

Whatcha in for, Pat?


Reminds me of that bunny with a pancake on its head

When Sherry isn't happy, trust me, you'll know it

Careful with those clippers, Eugene

Hi-diddly-ho, I got my hairs cut off
