My favorite Charlie Brown holiday song by Vince Guaraldi is "Little Birdie" from Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. 

And here's another fun one: Deck the Halls by Kasio Kristmas (it's instrumental) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ga5aX-YsfYM

while I've actually seen a lot of movies, I havn't seen a lot of boring action summer blockbusters.

Ok, it all makes sense now.  Good on you.

without Zach De La Roccha to prop them up, the rest of the members of Rage have spent a lot years grasping at straws.

Audioslave wasn't a total disaster, but Tom Morello hasn't really hit the musical sweet spot since ROTM stopped making new music.

the last two Star Trek movies were some of the worst films I've seen

You must not watch many movies.

I pretty much vet every piece of media before I view it. I'm happy on waiting for word of mouth to form a general idea of whether or not I should spend my time on something. So while I've actually seen a lot of movies, I havn't seen a lot of boring action summer blockbusters.

I feel that Vince Guaraldi’s "A Charlie Brown Christmas" soundtrack always deserves a shout out whenever holiday music is mentioned.

Really didn't think I would be posting in this thread, but randomly saw the name "Vince Guaraldi" and now have to, once again, tell Frosty that he's a good person with excellent taste.

My Vince Guaraldi station is my most played Pandora station, all year 'round.

I repeatedly tell myself "don't use high grade painkillers like vicodin or oxycodone, they make you sick" and I try so hard not to, but every once in a while a pain hits me waaaayyyyy to hard and I cave and use one....and I ALWAYS regret the massive bout of nausea I deal with after...

Riding on 8 hours now, still feel like I wanna puke.

I enjoy holiday music, but mostly in instrumental form.

I feel that Vince Guaraldi’s "A Charlie Brown Christmas" soundtrack always deserves a shout out whenever holiday music is mentioned. I play it several times each holiday season.
His rendition of O Tennenbaum is almost instantly recognizable:

Trans Siberian Orchestra, with it's progressive metal touch, has put out some pretty good Christmas albums over the last 20 years.
I think the most popular track of theirs is "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw0-nhQeqbc

Also, if you’re down with chip tunes, 8-bit Jesus is pretty good stuff.

"A Toolbox Christmas" deserves an honorable mention. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like, and it's great.

I feel that once again, Jugdral got screwed over by the years of never getting mentioned by Smash. Getting an Echoes style remake would likely do more for that setting than what SoV did for Gaiden.

As for Heroes content, they really need to do another t_t. The first one was really good, especially the part where you didn't have to be a fucking whale or really lucky to have a decent score. At least I don't feel as bad about dragging my heels in regards to some of the current content, but I'm still not looking forward to The Squad Assault/Chain Challenge Purgatory.
