A holiday treat/test of WordPress 2.9’s easier to embed video feature.

I decided I’d try out whether the new release of WordPress 2.9 & its embedding movies/video is indeed easier to do then prior versions, while at the same time giving you folks a holiday treat: a version of “A Christmas Carol” not often seen these days on the television.

There are some moments where the script seems a bit corny – the actors seem to be trying too hard to be as literal as possible to Dicken’s original novel, but it’s still a fine version.
