The Yule Log: clean, renewable energy or hoax?

December 25, 2009

For New York City apartment dwellers, Channel 11’s TV Yule Log may be their only fireplace. But is it also a solution for Global Warming?

The day-long video of a burning log always intrigues Rocky. Despite its continuous combustion, the log never decreases in size.

Rocky spent many a Christmas day staring at the Yule log (in-between bites of leftover Chow Mein) — unsuccessfully looking for evidence that the film was a continous loop.

During the 2009 baseball season, Trophy Wife bought a 55″ HDTV, and Rocky just parked himself in front of the huge new TV. He hopes that HD will either show the video to be a loop — or more likely, that the Yule log is a source of permanent, clean and renewable energy.

[Disclosure: Happy Holidays to all! Internet news reports that the video Yule log has gone national. Check your local listings for time and channel! See: http://www2.tbo.com/content/2009/dec/24/fireplace-yule-log-becomes-ubiquitous-holiday-tv-o/news-breaking/ . ]

    A 55″ TV? I’m impressed……I thought my 32″ was big. Actually it is for me, because two years ago, I replaced an old 19″ that had two bad guns in the tube. Faces looked blue, and the rest of the screen was shades of blue and black, gray and white. Going without TV for the majority of the last 30 years, I’m starting to catch up for my lost viewership.

    Happy holidays,

    Fakename would like to recommend that Rocky read blog friend floridacat’s blog entitled “Yule Make Me Hurl”. http://floridacat.wordpress.com/2009/12/09/yule-make-me-hurl/
    She did another called “Christmas Songs For the Insane”.

    One must be very careful not to dial 911 when this channel is on TV. I am told the fire fighters extinguish flame wherever it appears. But more seriously what I can’t figure out is if TV has gotten so bad that people would rather watch a log burning on their sets. Have a happy new year!

    For Christmas this year I gave my brother (who once called the Cable company asking them to please turn over the log on the Yule log channel as it was getting a little cold in his house) a homemade version of the fire channel. It includes such highlights as me making the fire, the Test Dog walking in front of the camera, and a surprise appearance of the Test Dog’s toys.
