Well it's been quite the year, huh? I just want to speak for all of us here who run the blog and say we are so thankful for each and every one of you guys. Every comment feels like a victory and it's really cool that so many people share in the same weird obsession as we do.
So whatever you're celebrating today, Merry Christmas, and I hope that you all call your families, eat lots of sweets, and watch a good movie, Christmas or not (I'm just about to go downstairs and start watching Doctor Who with my family). Thank you for being such cool followers, and I hope you got one of Howard's cool books from his giveaway.
So because I, unlike Howard, do not have a multitude of books to give away yet (seriously guys, go get some!) and it's nice and stormy over here in Alabama, and I just watched the film a couple days ago, here's part of the soundtrack from Julie Taymor's adaptation of The Tempest, where the lovely Ben Whishaw sings a passage regularly quoted in mermaid literature.
Merry Christmas everyone!
