- In this promotion for Homage Clothing, buy a $100 gift card for $75 and 15% of proceeds go to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Also, they are calling them “Handcrafted Artisan Gift Cards”, which is great because the artisans are schoolchildren decorating cardboard. Check out the link to watch video associated with it.
- Darlene Love has performed Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) on Letterman’s last show before Christmas every year since 1986. This year is special because it is her last (because it is Letterman’s last), so someone put together a video compilation of the performance.

If you listen to Spotify and want to see the stats of what you have been listening to over the last year, then check out Spotify’s Year In Music. It will even create a playlist based on your past year’s plays.
