Jeffery Self and Cole Escola, keepers of all things camp for the Millennial generation, were stuck in New Orleans for weeks shooting a new movie, the details of which we do not know. And in their hotel room (and several other locations), they took time out to bestow unto YouTube a Christmas Spectacular. Yes, and in the midst of it, they come up with a new term for the taint inspired by a Broadway star: the Marin Mazzie.

What we wouldn't give to have Jan Hooks and Nora Dunn back on SNL. Anyway, you should watch this every year on Christmas Eve like we do. "Who are you calling a ding-a-ling?!"
The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles teamed up with a group of kids from the Creative Planet School for the Arts to do this rendition of the "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" medley that originated with Bing Crosby and David Bowie in a 1977 TV special. They dedicated the number to the families of the slain children of Newtown, Connecticut. [Queerty]
Because Olympic diver Tom Daley just can't stop being the twink with the mostest, here he is in some new British ad campaign that may as well be jackoff material. Oh, sorry British tweens. We know you think he's yours. But no. We will never let him go. [via WeHo Confidential]
YouTube, she keeps on giving. Behold this little gem in which Ethel Merman tries to perk up a depressed Sesame Street crew after Oscar the Grouch has gotten them down, from 1978's "A Special Sesame Street Christmas." Watch how she really perks up and goes crazy-eyed when her music starts. Also, "Imogene [Coca]. What's the matter? You look like an idiot."
Holy. Shit. Please feel free to tune out right now if you aren't, in fact, a 100%, Scissor Sisters-humming, musical-theater-loving, Chris Colfer-adoring, gold-star gay. Even if you are you might find what we're about to share with you an atrocity of epically gay proportions. But in case you missed it, on last night's Glee, Sarah Jessica Parker returned (as Kurt's Vogue editor boss Isabelle Kempt), along with Shangela and Ana Matronic, to have a kiki with Kurt and Rachel in a New York loft. Hearing SJP do the "and by bitch I mean this rain" line made us kind of screw up our face with discomfort, but anyway, wow. Then Rachel leads some gals in a quick rendition of "Turkey-Lurkey Time" (our favorite fucked up holiday song ever, by far), because why not. We're pretty sure about half of gay America fell off their couches last night and either died or cried. See it below.
Having recovered, just barely, from a nasty bout of pneumonia, George Michael gives a little press conference saying that he 'nearly died,' and 'somebody thinks I've still got some work to do here.' [via Wicked Gay]
See the original, normal-speed episode below, in which Natalie and Jo do the most lesbian, off-key version of 'We Need a Little Christmas' ever recorded. The premise was (in case you don't remember the episode) they were performing at orphanage. Ugh.
Despite an annual ritual of collecting obscure modern Christmas tunes, we missed this one until now. It's a wordy, secular little song called 'White Wine in the Sun' by dredlocked Australian singer-songwriter Tim Minchin. You can buy it on iTunes here, but be warned, especially if the holiday makes you a bit delicate, it does turn a little sad. Thanks, Towle.
First you've got Damiana in her usual knit Christmas vest, and then you've got Jessica and Hunter — is that blow he's got on a mirror which gets quickly edited into a wine cooler? Oh, and then you have their secret recipe for SkinnyGirl eggnog. First ingredients: 30 or so packets of Splenda, and three Adderol.
It was all just a matter of time, really. The Huffington Post, the most credible news source ever in the history of man, reveals an exclusive coming out interview with Santa Claus. Clue #1? He's always been a huge New Kids on the Block fan. [via HuffPo]
