    Ten Great Things About Thanksgiving

    Well, it’s almost here. Thanksgiving is really, really soon, you guys. To celebrate, I made a list of the best things about Thanksgiving. I’d like to share it with you now.

    10. Folksy holiday travel pieces on NPR. On the one hand, it’s like, we get it, traffic is crazy, but they’re kind of cozy and comfortable in that they happen every year and they’re sort of universally relatable.

    9. Martellini’s Sparkling Apple Cider. I’m technically allowed to drink alcohol now, but why would I ever want to drink anything but cider?

    8. Referring to pumpkin pie as “punkin’ pie” to be funny, but also old-timey and cute.

    7. Remembering all your family’s wacky Thanksgiving stories, like the time my weird cousins and their parents got in a massive, knock-down-drag-out fight over whether Disney’s Brother Bear was a good movie.

    6. Stuffing. ‘Nuff said.

    5. Christmas music on the radio, because even if you’ve already been wearing out your holiday playlist for a month on Spotify, who cares, it’s officially Christmas music season!!!

    4. Watching the Macy’s Parade while eating some sort of yummy breakfast food your mom made (cinnamon rolls!) and getting a head start on that sweet, sweet sparkling cider consumption.

    3. The Charlie Brown balloon. He’ll never kick that football, will he?

    2. Spending the day with your family and/or chosen family, if you’re lucky enough to do so.

    1.     Third Leftovers, which is where you just fill a bowl with mashed potatoes, put a spoonful of everything else on top, and smash it all in your mouth at once while watching Miracle on 34th Street/It’s a Wonderful Life/Elf.

    Happy T. Gives, everybody!

    What I'm Thankful For... Braid.

    This is the week to tell everyone publicly what you're thankful for, so here's the first thing I want the public to know:

    Today I am thankful for Braid. Braid is an emo/post-hardcore band formed in 1993 and they have gotten me through many good/bad times, for this I am thankful.

    I never got a chance to see Braid, nor did I even know of them, during their first run as a band. They broke up in 1999 but lucky for me they got back together recently and I got to see them on tour.

    No other band has had quite a lasting impact on me as Braid and I'd say there is a reason for that, it's because Braid fucking rocks! They just released a new EP, Closer to Closed, in early 2011 and now they're in the studio working on their next full length.

    So today, I am thankful for Braid. Let me know what you're thankful for, ya internet brats. @MrChrisDonahue

    Thanksgiving Side Dishes

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing: side dishes. For too long, turkey has stolen the spotlight of the Thanksgiving meal, but it's so overrated. I mean, it's always too dry and you have to cut it with an electric knife. It's all about the side dishes. Allow me to run you through my favorites.

    Mashed Potatoes - When the pilgrims came to the new world they decided they had to seperate themselves from the tyranical potato preferances of the English. How do you improve upon potatoes though? Answer: mash them up and add a metric ton of butter to them. The pilgrms were onto something; mashed potatoes are basically edible silk, if silk slowly blocked your arteries with delicious, delious cholesterol.

    Sweet Potato Casserole - I'm from Minnesota, a land where casserole is king. Remember how I said I really liked mashed potatoes? Sweet potato casserole is kinda similar, but get this: it's got MARSHMALLOWS. I know what you're thinking, "Who was the mad genius who thought it ws acceptable to put a dessert ingredient in a side dish?" I don't know! But if I ever find out I want to give them a kiss on the forehead because it's exactly that kind of outside-the-box thinking that we need more of at the dinner table.

    NOT Cranberry Sauce - I hate cranberry sauce. It's fetid and disgusting and will never come within a mile of my plate. I mean look at it. Its refusal to even pretend to not be from a can is an affront to everything that Thanksgiving stands for and should be shunned from our tables. DO NOT eat cranberry sauce. It's one of the most un-American thing you can possibly do.

    Pumpkin Pie - Pumpkin Mother Fuckin Pie y'all! The coup d'état of the meal. The seizure of power. The putsch of Thanksgiving. I'm just now realizing that thesaurus entries for coup d'état don't really work here. That said, pumpking pie is the best. Who knew a mushed up gourd could be so delicous? You add a little (or enormous) dollop of whipped cream on there and you are good to go... puke in the bathroom because you ate so much.

    I already can't wait to stuff my face to capacity. What are some other good side dishes you guys are excited to eat? Watch My Damn Channel LIVE today for more Thanksgiving madness!

    Welp, Thanksgiving is over which means one thing and one thing only. IT'S OFFICIALLY CHRISTMAS TIME!!!

    Bust out the egg nog, trim the ole' Christmas tree, and hang the stockings by the fire with care ya doofus! I love Christmas! I love everything about it but most specifically the commercialization of it.

    Now you might be saying, "Hey Chris, come on! Not everyone celebrates Christmas." To which I say, "Hey person reading my blog post on the internet. I get it but Christmas is for everyone!!!"

    You see, what I'm trying to say is, it doesn't matter what religion you are because everyone can celebrate the commercialization of Christmas. It's Non-Denominational Christmas time for all!!!

    Also, other Happy Holidays that you may celebrate but Christmas is the best!

    I'm Obsessed with Patrice Wilson

    You guys, OH MY GOD YOU GUYS!!! Patrice Wilson has done it again!!!

    First he wrote the hit song Friday, with DailyGrace fan Rebecca Black, about the best day of the week... Friday. Then he wrote another amazing song about the best holiday where you don't get presents, Thanksgiving, and now he's back at it!

    When you were sitting around your home the other night thinking, "there is absolutely no way that Patrice Wilson could top Friday or It's Thanksgiving," YOU WERE WRONG!!! He topped it with Chinese Food!

    I'm always pretty thrilled about these videos. They're pretty ridiculous but extremely entertaining. This one kind of takes the cake for me though, or should I say… the fortune cookie?

    Alright, guys, I'm just completely obsessed with Patrice Wilson now! Tweet at me your favorite Patrice Wilson music video.
