Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: Boxing Day Eve Eve

Today’s selection, unlike reclining nude in your grandmother’s living room waiting for her to come back from grocery shopping so you can yell “SURPRISE!”, or even imagining such a thing, is wholly appropriate. Get your stockings in position, and then hang big socks by the fireplace, because it’s Christmas Eve, and someone’s about to drop a load on you!

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: MERRY Melodies

Oh my heavens, Christmas is only a couple days away now! That means it’s time to kick things into high gear. No more pussyfooting around with mere “winter” or “snow” or “ice” or “something from Friday the 13th to be funny” tracks. No, it’s time for the big guns, the unambiguous yule-cannons of the video game yule canon. And it doesn’t get much more unambiguous than today’s selection!

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.

Now this is weeeeird. I’d already planned on posting today’s track sometime during our little calendar here but ANC (wisely) suggested I save it for the solstice which was just too great a call to pass up. And strangely enough when peeking into the mailbox this afternoon, I was greeted with a package from Nintendo. My platinum Club Nintendo membership arrived and as it shakes out, is the soundtrack to the very game featured below!

MIND BLOWN.

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: Today’s Song is all About Cocaine!

We’re still five days away from Christmas but I’m going for it. This track is the second to make our calendar from Diddy Kong Racing and also just happens to be my favorite Christmasy video game music of all time. If you haven’t guessed which theme it is by now, well then what are you waiting for?

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: Yep. Here’s Some More Mario Music (Last One, Promise)!

What kind of 2013 musical calendar would fail to include a track from Nintendo’s biggest release of the season? Almost this one! But it recently occurred to me that Super Mario 3D World had yet to be represented and today’s clip remedies that!

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: I Got Yelled At For Humming This Too Much at Work Today.

Something we here at Nintendorks.net were really worried about when deciding which tracks to include in this calendar was forgetting any iconic holiday video game music that was completely obvious. It would have tortured us forever (or at least until next year when we don’t do this again). Today’s pick is one that could have easily slipped through the tracks and I’m so glad it did not.

You’re welcome, Grandma.

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: Jesus Christ, is it Christmas Yet?

Please excuse the brevity of this post. I went to see the new Hobbit movie with some friends tonight and am slightly disoriented by the strength of the nerd B.O. and heavy breathing I endured in the theater for all of those five hours. Would it have killed that staff to crank up the AC in the place for like a minute? Anyway, today’s selection is a great track and again, an N64 joint. Dig in.

Holidorks Musical Advent Calendar 2013: Go Tell it on th-ehhhh, You Get the Idea.

Allow me to present you with everything I know about the Ice Climbers in 50 words or less:

They and their stages are annoying as hell in Super Smash Bros. Melee, the original NES game is featured on this badass poster I still have hanging up someplace in my room that I won’t tell you where it is and the following track fits in with our playlist fairly well.

Fin.
