Why Adam Sandler’s ‘Thanksgiving Song’ Is a Holiday Classic

Why Adam Sandler’s ‘Thanksgiving Song’ Is a Holiday Classic
There’s so much to love about Thanksgiving: the piles of food, the expressions of gratitude, that uncle that still tries to get you to pull his finger, the four-day weekend, etc. And yet, this late November feast of gluttony is easily the most underserved among the major U.S. holidays when it comes to one important factor: its songs.

Christmas, of course, has more carols and novelty numbers than you can shake a giant candy cane at. Easter comes complete with “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” and a basket-load of hymns.

The 10 Hottest Men in Military Movies

I did my homework on Memorial Day: I thought of real veterans for awhile, let my mind wander over to hot movie veterans, and then ranked the 10 hottest of those for your viewing pleasure. I might be the best American I know. Insert your hilarious "You're a Grand Ole Flag" puns here.

Without further ado, here are my picks for the 10 hottest military gents of cinema. I sort of apologize that the list skews to newer films, but I swear I've selected some (literally) golden oldies too.

10. Josh Hartnett in Black Hawk Down

The doe-eyed hunk prince of 1998-2002 capped off his reign with his most critically acclaimed film, one where he got to fill out fatigues and show us how damn manly he could look.

9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Stop Loss

Jgl pulls off the shaved head look like no thespian since the man who ranks at #2 on our list.

'Fallout: New Vegas' Achievements Encourage Gambling, Survival

Playing the slots and generally bad public behavior will get you a lot of points in "Fallout: New Vegas." The post apocalyptic vision of Sin City now has a complete list of Achievements available, and they reveal the presence of a lot of familiar elements, as well as a few ambiguously identified surprises and loads of opportunities to up your Gamescore. If you don't mind potential spoilers, feel free to peruse them after the jump.

The game will host 50 individual Achievements with 1000 potential points available, according to Xbox360Achievements.org. Modding, hacking and general technical ingenuity will be worth many of those points, but getting banned from a casino, gambling and something called a "Ring-a-Ding-Ding" will be necessary to max out your Gamescore. Here's the rundown of the Achievements, along with the points you gain for each action:

• New Kid (10) - Reach 10th level

• Up and Comer (20) - Reach 20th

Elvis Presley Joins The Army, Gets A Trim: Wake-Up Video

To get a sense of how dramatically celebrity culture has changed in five decades, you need only look back to 1958. On this day that year, Elvis Presley — perhaps the most famous singer in the world at the time who already had gigantic hits with songs like "Blue Suede Shoes," "Hound Dog" and "All Shook Up" — received his regulation military haircut at Fort Chaffee in Arkansas. Even though he was a massive star, he could not escape the reach of Uncle Sam. The fervor surrounding Presley's military service was intense, and amazingly, he served two full years in the Third Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany.

Though the King was concerned about his career, Presley would often hit the studio during leaves and had logged plenty of recording time prior to the beginning of his service, so he managed to score 10 Top 40 hits (including "Wear My Ring Around Your Neck" and "(Now and Then

New Star to Brighten Our Humdrum Existence

It's like Timmy waving goodbye to Lassie, the heart-welling farewell tossed by Marc Ambinder to his Atlantic colleague Ross Douthat, soon to occupy the op-ed slot at The New York Times stained by the late, yet still irksomely present, William of Kristol. Steadying himself against a railing while the coffee machine refills, Ambinder produces quite a ballad to consecrate this bittersweet moment (via TBogg): It's one step back for the Atlantic, but an order of magnitude forward for the country: my colleagues and I learned today that senior editor Ross Douthat will, in short order, become an opinion columnist for the New York Times. Ross is a late-twenties-year-old public intellectual with the sensibility of a 60-year eminence grise, the range of a Hitchens, the pitch of a conservative Ajp Taylor, the conscience of a Neibuhr and the intellectual honesty of his frequent sparring partner, Andrew Sullivan.
