We were having a discussion the other day about what was the "BEST EVER" Christmas Movie. It was quite a heated debate albeit good fun. In the end, nobody could agree. So we decided to settle on a TOP 10. I thought I would share this Top 10 with you and hopefully get your comments. Where I could, I have added the YOUTUBE video that gives you access to the full movie. Having said that, some, if any will not work or will not be available to you.

People in the USA are celebrating thanksgiving today, and will be indulging in making merry with family and friends. We all at Tribe wish those celebrating a wonderful time with their friends and family.

For those unsure what Thanksgiving is.....

Here is the Wiki entry for Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated primarily in Canada and the United States. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general. The Thanksgiving Day service is held annually at the Pieterskerk in Leiden. While perhaps religious in origin, Thanksgiving is now primarily identified as a secular holiday.

The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. The traditional "first Thanksgiving" is the celebration that occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. The Plymouth celebration occurred early in the history of what would become one of the original thirteen colonies that became the United States. The celebration became an important part of the American myth by the 1800s. This Thanksgiving, modeled after celebrations that were commonplace in contemporary Europe, is generally regarded as America's first. Elementary school teacher Robyn Gioia has argued that the earliest attested "thanksgiving" celebration in what is now the United States was celebrated by the Spanish on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida.Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members and friends.

WORLD BUILDER is a superb short film about a strange man who builds a world using holographic tools for the woman he loves.

This award winning short was created by filmmaker Bruce Branit, widely known as the co-creator of '405'. World Builder was shot in a single day followed by about 2 years of post production. Branit is the owner of Branit VFX based in Kansas City.
It is superbly creative and I really enjoyed it...I hope you do to :)

The Machinima of Lyric Lundquist

New World Notes post brought
this SL Machinimatographer and her edgy work to my attention. Her work is without doubt some of the most intriguing and absorbing machinima that I have come across. Describing herself as a machinima maker/transitory art lover/dreamer (SL Profile), a description that certainly shows in her accomplished work. Not for everyone I know, but check it out.

It's nice to have friends but it's nicer to have friends that show you places that are cool and interesting to visit. I must give due credit to Blu Jupiter for finding this ever so lovely place! There seems to be something magical about winter wonderlands and especially for those of us who rarely if ever get to experience real ones. Winter at Never Never land is certainly no exception. If you want to just go and soak up the atmosphere you can relax by a cozy fire or if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, grab a pair of ice skaltes and take a spin around the pond. There 's even a sled if you are more into sharing the icy cold with someone . My personal favorite: a snowball maker!!! I have challenged both Drift and Blu to a snowball fight...we'll see which one of them has the NERVE!!!

For the romantic in you, grab your sweety and go for a whirl around the dance floor surrounded by glistening snow-covered trees and stars that twinkle in the night and then afterwards for a cuddle beside the fire. There a quaint little cabin with mistletoe JUST inside entrance where you can surprise someone special with a stolen kiss.

Hope you all enjoy Winter at Never Never Land...even the name promises something just a bit magical!!!
