The chorus was “Hallelujah, Sandy Screw Ya.” The lyrics from Adam Sandler at last night’s 12/12/12 concert provided a surprisingly comprehensive look back at the news events of the past year in New York City.

And the award for oddest Christmas video goes to…John Travolta. Twitter was abuzz with the letters “WTF” yesterday after the actor teamed up with his Grease co-star Olivia newton John to release a Christmas album. (The duo also gets points for the worst album cover of the year.) The first single, accompanied by a bizarre low-budget music video, has just been released and there are so many odd things about it—besides the fact that it’s their first collaboration in decades and they come up with a song that I could have written—that Vulture put together a top ten list.

Want to read about what I spend my day reading? You’re in luck. I recently divulged my media diet to the folks at the Atlantic Wire, who were nice enough to call me “New York’s favorite Canadian.” I walk through my In the Papers preparation and discuss the various columnists I find indispensable.

College Humor has done it again. Their new single “Look at this Instagram” has had me laughing all morning. Recorded as a Nickelback parody, it features two growly Instagram addicts showing off their feeds: Puttin’ glases on a cat/I’m the first one to think of that; Everyone look at my feet/Get jealous that I’m at the beach.

Today’s Starbucks Alter Ego comes from Tracie. We’re not sure what she was wearing when this photo was snapped, but apparently, she looked a little green to the barista on duty.

So yesterday, we featured a story on Pat’s Picks about a man named Jonathan Trappe, who used 215 helium balloons to lift a 3,727-pound house in New Mexico this weekend, and go for a two-hour flight. Inspired by the movie “Up,” Trappe’s trip did some inspiring of its own.

Thank you to everyone who help make last night’s Trivia for Sandy Relief a great success—and a great time! Organized by Trivworks, we managed to raise more than $5,000, money that will be split between two organizations—the The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, and Brooklyn Community Foundation Recovery Fund. There are so many people to thank I had to make a list:

I just did an interview with Monocle. It was a wide-ranging affair. We talked about everything from news aggregation to the changing times for media. Host Frederick Bernas asked me if I thought traditional forms of media still have a place in the digital landscape we now inhabit. How NY1 differs from the majority of cable news shows, and of course, what time I wake up in the morning.
